Which way the best to test Diabetes

Hi wanna ask what is the best way to test glucose level, recently I suspecting whether I have diabetes or not, I did a blood and urine test around end March 2021 and the results was normal 5.1mmal through fasting and now I wanted to test again as I recently midnight will go to the toilet 1 to 2 times. So should I go for the blood test again or just go to the clinic after the meal 2 hrs go for the glucometer test?

Hi, thank you for reaching out to us.

We understand your concern regarding your health status. For your information, to diagnose diabetes, a thorough history taking must be taken and physical examination needs to be done. On top of that it must be supported by proper laboratory investigation. Normally, diabetes is diagnosed when a person fulfill the risk factors and oral glucose tolerance test shows a reading of:

Fasting of more than 7.0 mmol/L
2 hours post glucose intake more than 11.1 mmol/L
Random (taken at any time) of more than 11.1 mmol/L
