Blood sugar levels of 104

My recent blood test results showed my glucose at 104. By the time I had my blood drawn I had fasted for almost 14 hours. Is this to long to fast? I heard your glucose can possibly increase if you fast to long. Is 104 still in the "OK" range? My doctor wants to put me on Actos. It actually went down from a year ago when my test showed 108. I exercise and eat healthy most of the time with an occasional night out. I weigh 170 and am 5' 5" have a muscular build with 17% body fat so I don't consider myself overweight.

I am having my blood tested again in 3 months. What can I do to get my glucose under 99 next time? Thanks.

Hi.  I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes.  8 hours of fasting is normal, but 14 isn't a bad thing.  104 is a little high, under 100 is good, between 100 and 125 is considered pre-diabetes.  The fluctuations you are seeing are typical of blood glucose scores.  With type 1 diabetes, there really isn't much you can do to get your blood glucose level lower.  If you are going to develop diabetes, there isn't anything known you can do to stop it.  You can keep exercising, you can keep eating well, and that's about all you can do.  Not very helpful or positive, I know.
