Diabetes: One of the criteria for diagnosis of diabetes is random blood sugar higher than 200. You ought to see your doctor for a proper fasting plasma glucose examination. Measuring with a glucometer is not reliable for diagnosis. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
