My doctor didn't tell me she just said that both times they came out high. And yes after the diagnoses they set up an appointment with a specialists who goes over a diet plan for you. I check my sugar levels 4x a day now it's really not that bad though honestly,  once you start understanding it and learning to eat better it's a piece of cake. Don't worry too much about it you'll be fine
