How do You Test for Diabetes?

Your physician will have to perform one of two types of tests in order to determine if you have diabetes. In the first test, you will have to fast overnight, they will then check to see what your blood sugar level is while you are fasting. The other one, you will fast for at least 10 hours prior and then drink a substance that has a high sugar count. The doctor will then test your blood sugar levels at 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, and 3 hours after you have drank it. For more information, look here:
