recovery and (pre) diabetes(high glucose)

Hi Im a bit anxious, just had results of blood test and it was fasted. I have high glucose and this was also the case a few months ago. I now need to do a glucose monitor test in the next few weeks. This seems odd as i even went for a run before this blood test so bit worries about my high result. And now its getting in my head in terms of recovery, like limiting certain food types (not that i eat much of that anyway). My BMI is ok, but i still restrict and alot of the time my meals are hit and miss, and i seem to eat most of my cals late in the evening. Just wondering if anyone can relate to these results (high blood glucose) is it just my pancreas thats out of sync and needs retuning, or is it my random meals times that are making it worse? As i mention i dont even eat much of certain food types, but since im in recovery its what im working on and this result has put an anxiety spanner in the machine.... thanks
