I fully agree with Shanny on this topic. My father had blood sugar higher than his doctor wanted it to be, but I never heard the word diabetic used by the doctor. He never was treated for it, but ate few carbs other than desserts, when I tested at 6.9 and began to read everything I could find on it, it seems I'm diabetic, but controlled by diet. I also asked a first cousin of mine about the family history and it seems we had a number including him and his son who ran high blood sugars. Anyway, I stay around 90-100 fasting, and I watch what really raises my sugar after eating. In a year of being very careful, I pretty well know what I can eat and what I can't...so I consider myself diabetic at this point.
