No: If fasting for at least 8 hours
fasting sugar 100-125 is pre-diabetes and 2-hrs after eating 140-199 is prediabetes.
Fasting -126 and higher
and 2 hours after eating= 200 and greater is diabetes
can get home blood glucose testing equipment over the counter in pharmacies.
then see MD if any of above apply
