My uncle recently got his blood sugar levels tested.
While fasting he has his reading 140 which is more than normal .
But after taking food it is normal. Now I want to clarify whether he is having diabetes or not? Why are his readings abnormal?

If it was a test of a drop of blood from his finger these arent all that accurate, get several other tests done, make sure his hands are clean with no food on them
a glycated hemoglobin test ordered by a doc would give an accurate result
