Neither do I. That doesn't mean anything. There are tests that need to be administered to verify your condition.

A fasting glucose tolerance test, and an A1c test will tell you what you need to know.

Random glucose numbers don't really mean much. My fasting numbers were around 120-130 and A1c of 6.9

With exercise and change of diet, my fasting numbers are low 80's, and A1c is 5.5.

If you get dx'd early on, you can probably get by with lower carbs and exercise, but time will tell if you will need meds or not.

To me, the question is, who gave you diabetes medication without first testing and diagnosing you as a diabetic in the first place?

The best advise is go to the diabetologist you or an endocrinologist and get yourself tested for fasting blood glucose, if your results are not normal then go for other tests with the doctors advise.
