Prediabetes

My Fasting Blood Sugar Test reading is 103 and the range of normal readings is given 80-120. However, internet findings say that it should be less than 100. Though I was travelling the previous night before the test and am eating outside for last 8 days. It can also impact my blood sugar readings. He also conducted urine test and couldn't find glucose, Acetone etc in it... Am I prediabetic?

Get a Fasting sugar, Post Lunch Sugar, Glycosylated Haemoglobin (HbA1c). Consult a physician with the reports. Your reports will tell you whether you are a prediabetic or diabetic
