Howdy Julie. If your numbers look good, CONGRATULATIONS! Perhaps you caught your diabetes in the "pre diabetes" stage. And in either case you are doing GREAT!

To be on the safe side were I in your place, I would consider myself as a Person with Diabetes (PWD) and follow the plan you were following to get your numbers in the normal range. Maybe after a couple years of good numbers you might ask for a glucose tolerance test, which would tell you whether or not you were "pre" or actually are a PWD have to continue to watch your menu plan and continue your exercise regimen.

Congratulations again Julie!

Once you are diagnosed, you are diabetic..it can be very confusing, though. You can have nondiabetic numbers after being diagnosed for days, weeks, months..even a few years. You are still diabetic, though. ANNE

I was diagnoised as a diabetic in 2007 I was hospitilized for over a week. At that time my BG was well over 900. I have since controlled my BG and my A1C for the has been 6.0 Today, there is no douth that I am Diabetic even if I test in the normal ranges. Keep taking your meds as prescribed by your Doctor and eat right you are doing something right. Keep us updated on your journey. Live

Your blood sugar can be normal and you can be diabetic. Mine is normal almost all the time. Not without medicine and not without watching what I eat though

have they checked your A1C level, this tells what your blood sugar has been doing for the past 3 months. If not to personal what were you in the hospital for. Sometimes during stress blood sugars raise. If you hav been eating well then maybe it was enough to bring your numbers back within the normal ranges. are you on any medications for the diabetes?
