Will doctors check for diabetes, or is it possible that be been detected, in a regular blood test taken during a routine check up?

In brief: Probably

There is no set formula for a "routine check up", but it often involves a panel of blood work, which would include a blood glucose.
If the glucose was performed fasting, that would be a good indication of diabetes, or not.
