Just to add that the second point in the quote above,
"# A plasma glucose value of 126 mg/dl (7 mmol/L) or more."
# A *fasting* plasma glucose value of 126 mg/dl (7 mmol/L) or more.
The following lab values are the American Diabetes Association practice guidelines for the diagnosis of diabetes:
# A random plasma glucose value of 200 mg/dl (11.11 mmol/L) or more (in the presence of diabetes symptoms).
# A plasma glucose value of 126 mg/dl (7 mmol/L) or more.
# An oral glucose plasma glucose value of 200 mg/dl (11.11 mmol/L) or higher at 2 hours post-glucose load.

With the symptoms you have and your blood glucose levels (assume you washed hands before testing) you should see your doctor as soon as possible.
I appreciate the advice. The symptoms I am experiencing are the fatigue, extreme thirst, frequent urination, and I've had stomach cramps. It is hard for me to tell about the extreme hunger, because I have an eating disorder (anorexia nervosa), therefore I ALWAYS think I eat too much. I have just recently fully recovered for about 6 months, but I still struggle. I am very scared if I do have diabetes, because I know that these 2 disorders together are a lethal combination.
Hello, mianna. I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes. Your glucose level is cause for concern, but you don't mention what the other symptoms are that you're seeing. There is a simple check that can be done at your doctor's office, I'd recommend you ease your concerns by scheduling an appointment. Good luck.
