Blood Sugar Readings (a little concerned)

A few years ago I was diagnosed as pre diabetic, but I lost 60 pounds and I was able to get my blood sugar down to reasonable levels.
I just had a blood test to apply for Life Insurance. I'm a 38 year old male and I'm about 220 pounds. I got a blood glucose reading of 77 mg/dl (I hadn't eaten for 4 hours) but my fructosamine rating was 1.8 (out of a range of 0-2.0).
Should I be worried?

No- that is still in the range and your blood sugar of 77 is great. What is more important than that fructosamine level is your HGa1c. That is a test that measures glucose levels over a 3 month period. You should be having those done at least twice a year I would say.
