Was diagnosed Type 2 in Sept after going in to see the doc for insatiable thirst. I had a feeling how it was going to go before they even suggested it, as thirst is a big first sign. Anyhow I pin pricked for a glucose level of 532. Doc proscribed some metformin for me that day and had me come back for the complete fasting blood draw. Officially diagnosed a week later with fasting sugar level of 450 and a a1c of 13.7.
3 months later I now average a 116 glucose level, have lowered my a1c to 6.5, and am doing a heck of a lot better.
