Default Blood test

Hi, I am new here. I haven't been diagnosed for diabetes, but I have some symptoms so I want to make blood test. I already have 2 blood tests from last year, but this was only blood sugar measured at morning before eating. I want to make now also test after meal.

Now my question is:
I am currently on low carbohydrate diet for other reasons. I have been on it for 2 weeks. Will this make after meal results uncredible? Could for this reason results be as normal, but in reality result would show too high level?

You won't know until you test. If you already have a meter, then start testing at one and two-hour intervals after eating. If you don't have a meter, then get one.

Being on the LC way-of-eating is going to lower your blood sugar levels, so yes, perhaps in your mind that makes them not credible. But it also shows that LC will control your condition at this time. Another of our members is in the same boat - she recognized her symptoms, changed her way-of-eating, and by the time she saw the doctor to be tested, her numbers were in the non-diabetic range, so she still has not been diagnosed diabetic.

But you won't know anything until you start testing.

Wouldn't single meal with lot of sugar and other carbs show high blood sugar if there is anything wrong?

You could purchase an inexpensive meter and test strips. I don't know what country you are in, but here in the U.S. Walmart sells Reli-On brand at a low price. You could eat a high-carb meal, then test 1 and 2 hrs. after the first bite. You might want to do that for both lunch and dinner, then you can post the results here if you want so we can tell you what we think.
