Blood test: Your doctor can do a blood test called hemoglobin a1c. This test would give a rough appraisal of your blood sugars over a 3 month period. If elevated, your doctor may help you work on a plan to knock it down and re-test you in three months for further discussion. If normal, you're not diabetic, but a discussion about why you're concerned and next steps is also warranted.
