Not necessarily: But your glucose are above normal, suggesting diabetes or at least prediabetes. The exact name doesn't matter. You need education, diet, exercise, weight reduction and probably medication. Check w/your doctor.

High fasting.: A fasting blood sugar of that level is indicative of glucose intolerance, the first stage of type II diabetes. But you should discuss this with the doctor who ordered the test. If you got these results on a home machine, you should discuss this and your overall health status with your personal physician. There may be other factors at work. Good luck!
