My blood sugar is 104mg/dl and my estimated average glucose is 140 mg/dl. Do I have diabetes?

If your fasting blood glucose is 100-125 mg/dl on two separate days, that indicates prediabetes. If your eAG is 140 mg/dl, that indicates an A1c of 6.5 percent which is a diagnosis of diabetes, but your doctor needs to tell you that.
