Diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes is diagnosed through laboratory blood tests: the fasting blood glucose test, hemoglobin A1c test, and the oral glucose tolerance test. Serious complications arise with type 2 diabetes, if not diagnosed early, or if inadequately controlled. Regular check-ups and monitoring are stressed, as these can help delay or prevent many diabetes complications.

    I just tested and I had 5.7 mmol/L (equal to 102.7 mg/dL) after not eating anything for 18+ hours. I didn't write the time down but I am 90% sure it was closer to 24 hours without food.

    I do not have any history of diabetes; in my family or otherwise, I just noticed I was steadily consuming more and more sugar every day, especially since the lockdown. I counted calories and wrote everything down; it turns out I regularly consume in excess of 200 grams or 7 ounces of sugar per day. This worried me greatly, especially since my excessive sugar intake has been going steadily for at least 3 or 4 months now.

    Because of this I bought a blood glucose meter, just so I could be 100% sure I am not walking around with sky high blood glucose. These preliminary results somewhat worry me, but I am going to do another test in a few days. This time around I'll be sure to accurately track the 24-hour window before measuring my blood glucose level again.

    What do you guys think? Should I be worried about my result of 5.7 mmol/L (102.7 mg/dL)? What is considered a normal healthy value? 70 to 80 mg/dL?

    Thank you for your time, kind traveler. Any and all comments/ideas/criticisms and/or opinions are very welcome and a response would be greatly appreciated!

    hi please advice i was tested early this week and my doctor told me that i should eat breakfast before coming to be tested i did have breakfast and i had the test done. a few days later i got my results and was told i was type 2. I have spoken to many people who have said i should not have eaten before i was tested and i should have not eaten for at least 8 hours. So i am wondering has my doctor tested me wrongly or did he test me correct i am a little confused
