Re: test results
You have high triglycerides also. This, along with high LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, high blood sugar, and high blood pressure are the components of "metabolic syndrome x" which is caused by insulin resistance.
Your results are not extreme. I would bet that Itotito is right and you would probably test prediabetic on the OGTT.
If you follow through on this and get an early diagnosis, it is greatly to your benefit. From where you are now, you can very likely control your metabolic syndrome back to nondiabetic levels with diet and exercise alone. And you may avoid ever contracting full-blown diabetes.
