Blood sugar 102 about 1-2 hours after breakfast?
Just for fun, I checked my blood sugar level on my aunt's diabetes machine. It said 102 and my mom's said 99. I'm worried, am I pre-diabetic??

In my opinion, it sounds real good. Even aftrer taking it after a fast of from 12-14 hours, 102 sounds good.
No, you're nowhere near pre-diabetic. A fasting blood glucose level (after not eating overnight) in a non-diabetic should be in the range 70 to 99 mg/dL (3.9 to 5.5 mmol/l). Two hours post prandial (after eating) and a non-diabetic's blood glucose level would not normally rise above 140 mg/dL (7.8 mmol/l). I say normally as there are occasions when it could go higher, such as if you were to be suffering an underlying infection, you were going through a period of extreme stress, or you were taking certain medications which are known to cause a rise in blood glucose levels. (These medications often include steroids, such as the types prescribed for the treatment of asthma or for treating certain specific types of infection.)
Nope. Both of those are normal
Nope. 102 is very NORMAL. Home-test glucose meters are NOT designed for clinical or "diagnostic" use. NEVER take a reading using TWO meters -- they probably won't match. There will ALWAYS be SOME error. but the error is so tiny as to not make a difference if you use the SAME METER all time. A NORMAL reading is between 80 and 120. YOUR reading is right smack-dab square in the MIDDLE! YOU ARE NORMAL.

What is Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make enough insulin. Insulin is a hormone that helps your body convert food into energy. Without insulin, glucose (sugar) from the food you eat cannot enter cells. So glucose builds up in the blood. Your body tissue becomes starved for energy.

Type 1 diabetes usually begins in children and young adults. Over the long-term, if type 1 diabetes is not adequately treated, high blood sugar levels can damage the blood vessels, heart, kidneys, eyes, nerves, and other tissues or organs.
