3 hour glucose test results: fasting was 89, thirty minutes was 180, one hour was 198, two hour was 64.... what does this tell me?

Normal: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your results are within the normal limit. The one hour level is at the borderline. See this site for more info.
