I am sorry you were found to be boarderline diabetic.

fasting blood glucose of 142 is boarderline diabetic

you should also get hemoglobin a1c levels as well to check those levels.

you should work on eating smarter and healthier foods and exercising to loose weight.

let me know if you have other questions.
