I'm normally on the Ulcerative Colitis board, but just got some blood tests done to check how well I'm doing with my colitis medications.  Everything was normal except the blood glucose was slightly high at 107.  The high norm is 99, so I know it's not too far off, but I fasted a total of 14 hours (would have been less but had to make extra trips to find the right lab to do my tests).  Am I assuming correctly that the glucose would have been even higher if I had the test done after a normal 8-10 hour fast?  I don't know much about diabetes/glucose so I thought I would ask those who know.  Thanks in advance for any input.

107 is fine, you have nothing to worry about, based on that result alone. It might not hurt to have an A1c run just to be sure. See if your Dr. will order it.

Its a very good idea to get an A1C, if it would be me I would insist on a glucose tolerance test, as it is the only way to really know if you have pre diabestes or not, I had an A1C level of 5.5 which is considered normal level but that was only because I was on a low carb diet, when I monitored by blood sugers for a few days I realized my levels really go up, so I am on Metformin and a very low carb diet and feeling great!

If you feel tired after eating it is a very good idea to go see an endocronologist to see exactly whats going on, fasting levels should be below 100
