Hello and welcome to our community! Those numbers are quite good but a fasting of 116 is a little high fo a nondiabetic. I suggest that you test at home and see what you fasting is for the next few days and then let s know what you find. You may be fine with no problems.

I would recommend going to see you doctor. He'll run some tests and you will have peace of mind or an answer to your glucose levels. Please see your doctor and have confirmation of diabetes or not.

Hello

You dont have to because you are doing great.

For a normal person without diabetes, the fasting blood glucose reading should not be more than 6.1 mmol/l [ 110 mg/dl ]. So it is not too bad for you.

If you do a random blood glucose test, normal value should not be more than 7.8 mmol/l [ 140 mg/dl ]

Thanks everyone...I retested 4 mornings in a row and levels were 88-96. The 116 must have been a one time deal.
