Your fasting levles appear normal.  This is good.

To totally rule out problems a test called HBA1C could be done.  This test is a test of average blood sugars over the past 3 months. Truely normal results are < 5.0 (4.3 - 4.6 optimal).

There can be other cause of symptoms, including Urinary Tract Infection. Please coordinate with your dr. for further information and clarifications.

Hi ,
Your fasting reading is 97, even  less than 100, to me, indicates that you are a pre-diabetic,
To find out if you are diabetic or not, to me, the most inexpensive and quickest way is purchasing a A1C self-test kit called A1C NOW made by Bayer available at WalMart or Walgreeen for about $29.90. This kit is very accurate and simply follow the instruction voila in 5 minutes, the result is in front of you. Good luck

What do you mean by 'all the symptoms'? You may be dealing with something else. 97 is a completely normal blood glucose reading.

There might be something else going on. I would talk to your doctor about getting your A1C's done PROPERLY (not a store test), to determine this. That will be the true indicator.

Or you can do what my little brother did. Drank a bunch of sugared koolaid and waited to go to the ER because his blood sugar was too high. lol

Seriously, though, it could be something else.
