If it's a non-fasting blood glucose level than if it's under 200mg/dl then you are not diabetic.
How is diabetes diagnosed?
Type 1: Patients with type 1 diabetes usually develop symptoms over a short period of time, and the condition is often diagnosed in an emergency setting. Urinalysis of an acutely ill type 1 diabetic patient will detect high glucose levels, and high levels of ketones. Ketones are produced by the breakdown of fat and muscle, and they are toxic at high levels. Ketones in the blood cause a condition called "acidosis" (low blood pH). Blood glucose levels are also high.
Type 2: Patients with type 2 diabetes develop symptoms over a longer period of time. Type 2 diabetes is diagnosed when:
•The blood glucose is 126 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl) or higher on two occasions after fasting (abstaining from food) for 8 or more hours; or
•The blood glucose level is 200 mg/dl or higher at any time between meals with symptoms of diabetes, such as increased thirst, urination, and fatigue; or
•A blood glucose level drawn two hours after drinking a 75-gram glucose solution is 200 mg/dl or higher.
