Little hard to say based on one reading. What is your fasting blood sugar and a1c?

No it is not. An 134 mg/dl test result fours after eating is considered diabetes. Postprandial [2-3 hours after meal] should be <141 mg/dl, optimum <121 mg/dl.

Having desert implies eating something sugary. Sorry, but it sounds like you're playing Russian roulette with your diabetes?

In 2009, 1,812,000 [million] new cases of diabetes was reported, up  100,000 [approx] from the previous year. One should have their glucose [blood sugar] checked as part of the yearly physical health checkup.

You should ask for an A1c [hemoglobin A1c] test which measures your glucose over the past 3 months. Red blood cells live an average of 3 months. Normally excess glucose binds to new red blood cells and the A1c captures this. Your results are presented in % [percentile]. To find out your daily average glucose use this formula.

    28.7 X A1c – 46.7 = your daily average glucose

Normal is 60/70 to 99 mg/dl
Prediabetes is 100 to 125 mg/dl
Diabetes is 126 mg/dl and above
