I am also newly diagnosed as a Diabetic, and having problems understanding what it all means. It is confusing reading about pre-diabetes, dibetes, and the glucose tests are confusing to me. My doctor just told me, "you have diabetes", and they gave me papers to read. I am confused about my A1C Fasting Glucose test results and if they do mean I have Diabetes or pre-diabetes. From what I read, the numbers at the different times during the test, (fasting/1/2 hr/1 hr/2hrs/3hrs) I don't know if what my numbers show for sure. Anyone knowledgeable about these numbers and what they show? I have already started eating better, losing weight slowly and exercising more, so now need to have my qestions answered for peace of mind. I am not happy with my doctor over how she handled my latest heath issues.
