Back in March, I went to Urgent care for an infection, and my BS was 271. The Urgent care doctor told me to see my primary right away because I probably have diabetes. My primary had me do some labs, and my FBS was 118. She said I don’t have diabetes because my fbs was below 125 but I probably had prediabetes. A couple months later, my mom, who just found out she’s type 2 earlier this year, checked my BS just to test her meter. My BS was 251. I knew then I must have diabetes, as I no longer had an infection as an “excuse” for the high number.
Yesterday, I went to see my doctor again for a routine physical. I asked her what my A1c had been back in March. She told me 6.8. Shouldn’t that have been enough to diagnose me then? She had me do labs again today but not with a GTT. I’m now wondering, since I’ve been monitoring my BS - mostly keeping it below 130, with fbs usually below 100 - will she still not think I have diabetes? I really want a prescription for test strips, as I’ve been paying for them myself!
