Could I be diabetic with a fasting glucose of 94?

Fasting sugar > 126, random blood sugar > 200 (with symptoms like thirst, excess urine output, weight loss) or a test called hemoglobin A1c > 6.5% will give you the diagnosis of diabetes. An oral glucose tolerance test is another test you can do to diagnose diabetes. ...Read more

Unlikely: If both HbA1c and fasting glucose are normal you are most likely fine.
