Diabetes (Definition)

What can I do if my fasting sugar is 106 and 2 hours later after a meal 110. Is this pre diabetes?

Technically the: Fasting (if a lab sugar) is in the prediabetes range, but not the post meal. However, why are you worried about that it's called. It's all a progression from obesity -> Insulin resistance -> pre diabetes -> true diabetes. Why wait for the name to change.
