  • Diabetic.

    Don't feel happy if someone tells you that it is border line or pre-diabetes.

    Diabetes is like pregnancy. It's either there or not there.

  • Diabetes is diagnosed with the following blood tests:--

    Fasting blood glucose level -- diabetes is diagnosed if it is higher than 126 mg/dL two times

    Random (nonfasting) blood glucose level -- you may have diabetes if it is higher than 200 mg/dL, and you have symptoms such as increased thirst,

    urination, and fatigue (this must be confirmed with a fasting test)

    Oral glucose tolerance test -- diabetes is diagnosed if the glucose level is higher than 200 mg/dL after 2 hours

    Hemoglobin A1c test

    Normal: Less than 5.7%

    Pre-diabetes: Between 5.7% and 6.4%

    Diabetes: 6.5% or higher

    HbA1c is not yet considered reliable as FPG (Fasting Plasma Glucose) or OGTT (Oral glucose tolerant test).
