I see in your post two questions regarding whether you are candidate for;
1] Metabolic syndrome
2] Prediabetes

The NCEP [National Cholesterol Education Program] guidelines for diagnosing metabolic syndrome is if you have 3 or more of the following traits:
1. Extra large waistline
2. High Triglycerides
3. Low HDL
4. High blood pressure
5. High fasting glucose
You provided only one, #5, and possibly two with #1.

Your 90, 120, and 150 minute OGTT test results say prediabetes. A followup A1c [HbA1c, HgbA1c] test will verify whether you are a candidate for diabetes or not. If you lose the excess poundage you stand a very good chance of returning to normalcy before it's too late. Good luck -
