I am 19.My dad just bought a glucometer for himself. Out of curiosity, I tested my sugar levels without telling anyone .I used fresh strips and everything. It showed my fasting levels as 105.Am I prediabitic?I dont have any symptoms.I am thin,have normal appetite and urination. Just day before yesterday I went on a day trip with my friends and had a ton of sweet things like candies, cake and ice cream. Is it possible that this led to the spike in my levels?I am super scared.I don't want to tell my parents that I am possibly diabitic.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You are not prediabetic.Its just normal fluctuation of sugar level.I would suggest you to repeat fasting blood sugar level if its more than 110 mg/dl then go for oral glucose tolerance test.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
