What Your Test Results Mean
Diabetes is usually diagnosed one of the following ways:
- If your fasting blood sugar level is 126 mg/dL or higher on a laboratory test
- A blood sugar level over 200 mg/dL at any time of day with symptoms of diabetes such as increased hunger, increased thirst, and increased urination
- Blood sugar level of 200 mg/dL or higher two hours after drinking a 75g glucose beverage in the lab, also known as an oral glucose tolerance test
Your doctor may request a repeat test be completed on another day to confirm your diabetes diagnosis.
