Thanks for responding. My doctor made me take the test because I scored a 12 on the risk test, i have high blood pressure, my dad and brother both have diabetes, i am overweight and have high cholesteral. Not to mention most of the symptoms (extreme fatique, frequent urination especially at night, numbness in hands and feet, headaches, irritability and blurry vision. She basically said it's not a matter of if, but of when, given all of the above. She also said I would need more blood tests in the coming months for A1c test is probably next.
