Prediabetic and diabetic are a continuum. Going by hba1c truly normal is less than 5.0, 5.7 or so wool get you diagnosed as Prediabetic, 6.5 or so diabetic  - depending on the lab ranges.

Fasting < 95 normal, 95 - 124 Prediabetic, 125 + diabetic.

2 hour post eating should be < 120 to be normal.

Hope this helps.
