The definition of diabetes diagnosis is a blood sugar of >127 when FASTING

or a blood sugar of >200 only 2 hours after eating (not 30 minutes)

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
