Could I Be Diabetic With A Fasting Glucose Of 94
Unlikely: We don't typically follow 1 number to diagnose diabetes but a fasting sugar of 94 is normal and is not in the diabetes range. Fasting sugar > 126, random blood sugar > 200 (with symptoms like thirst, excess urine output, weight loss) or a test called hemoglobin A1c > 6.5% will give you the diagnosis of diabetes. An oral glucose tolerance test is another test you can do to diagnose diabetes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I would get a hba1c, if above 6.5, you have diabetes. In any event, a no concentrated sweets diet is in order, and if you are overweight, you must lose weight. Do regular exercise. ...Read more
Variable: Some people will develop the neuropathy in their feet (burning, stinging) before their sugars become significantly abnormal. Often episodes of hypoglycemia (low sugars) precede overt diabetes. People who are developing type II DM will experience weight gain, fatigue, possibly increased minor infections. ...Read more
Unlikely: If both HbA1c and fasting glucose are normal you are most likely fine. Occasionally people are having much higher sugars AFTER they eat (measured 2 hours) and are diabetic without knowing it. This would have been reflected in the A1c though which is why I think you're probably fine! ...Read more
