In brief: Blood glucose level
And hemoglobin A1c for definitive diagnosis and to aide in determining just about how long your sugar levels have been abnormal.

In brief: Urine & blood
To diagnose diabetes mellitus type 2, blood tests are used.
The urine can also be tested for sugar. Blood fasting sugar and hemoglobin a1c levels are helpful. People with diabetes undergo regular blood sugar testing, blood and urine tests for kidney function, lipid tests, eye exams, and other tests. A good list is here: http://sgoti.Ws/zotkqv.
