What is diabetes?
Diabetes occurs when you have lost your ability to utilize insulin in response to blood  sugar, or if your insulin has become to low, therefore you level of glucose/sugar in the blood remains too high all the time.
How is diabetes diagnosed? 
3 blood tests: 1.Fasting blood sugar, which should be below 100 2. A1C should be below 5.7- this is a 3-month average of your blood sugars. 3. An oral glucose tolerance test should show your sugar at less than 140.
How do I know if I have pre-diabetes?
It is estimated that about 40% or more of the people with pre-diabetes don’t know they have it; either they have not been screened through a blood test, or it hasn’t been suspected since you most likely won’t feel any symptoms from it. To diagnose it your fasting blood sugar has to be between 110 and 125, and your A1C has to be between 100-125.
