Only a doctor can tell you whether or not you're diabetic.Listening to people who are not qualified to diagnose your condition can be extremely dangerous! A week before I was diagnosed my sous chef told me I had a kidney infection and that I should drink lots of cranberry juice. I worked in a hotel kitchen, so I had cases of the stuff sitting in my store room. Unfortunately for me, this juice had over 30 grams of sugar per glass! Needless to say it made my condition worse. See a doctor. Better yet an endocrinologist or internal medicine specialist. But do it right away. I waited until I had to be taken to the hospital on a gurney in the back of an ambulance writhing in extreme pain and begging the EMT to kill me right there on the spot. DON'T WAIT! Do it now!

Diabetes run within the family genes.'get checked up from a professional. I wouldn't want to say it, but from your 463 blood sugar result and your symptoms u have it.

The only person I know of who can answer your question about where you are in the Diabetes category is like harry1 said, your doctor. I believe you should have a heart to heart talk with your doctor. Ask him about having test done. Tell your doctor how you feel, and what's going on with your blood glucose etc. and your weight. Unless you are very short like me, I wouldn't try to lose any more weight with out talking to your doctor, also address the idea that you may have some issues about taking medicine and ask about diabetes denial. Fear is a powerful thing, but your doctor can help you.

Go and see a doctor have them do lab work a A1C test will tell them if you're a diabetic and what type. I'm type 2 insulin dependent.
