In brief: You probably had

a slightly elevated blood sugar level.
This can vary widely throughout the day, depending on what you eat and your level of physical activity. There is a test called hgbA1c which is a blood test that reflects your average blood sugar levels. You should inquire whether or not this test is advisable.
