Diabetes?: If you are concerned you may have diabetes, do fasting blood sugar when you first get up. Do you have diabetes symptoms—blurred vision, frequent urination, constant hunger, constant thirst, slow-to-heal wounds? See your fp for complete evaluation & initiation of treatment if indicated.

See your doctor: Point of care instruments for glucose measurement are not validated for diagnosing diabetes or performing glucose tolerance test. You should consult your doctor so see if you need to be tested for a1c, or by glucose tolerance test with the tests being performed by an accredited laboratory.
