In brief: Maybe

You need two positive tests to give you a diagnosis.
A fasting blood sugar over 126 is one positive test. You need another one to confirm, either repeat another fasting blood sugar (through blood draw), or measure a hba1c which is a blood test that does not require fasting, or do an oral glucose tolerance test which is more cumbersome and is more time consuming.

In brief: Possibly

Fasting sugar greater than 100 is high.
A better test for diabetes is hemoglobin A1c which does not fluctuate as does the blood sugar.
