Questions to Ask Your Doctor About Your Test Results

  1. What are my test results? 
  2. Can I get copy of my results for my records? (this is super important!)
  3. What is my diagnosis based on my results?
  4. Am I Prediabetic or Diabetic?
  5. Do I need to take other tests?

Are you Prediabetic or Diabetic?

If so...you need to test your blood sugar in the morning (fasting) and after meals. If you only have Insulin Resistance it doesn't help much to test your blood sugar since you still have blood sugar control.

​Follow-Up

If you've received a positive Insulin Resistance, Prediabetes or Type 2 Diabetes diagnosis, you need to go  back to the doctor to check your progress.

Insulin Resistance or Prediabetes = 6 months follow up visit

Type 2 Diabetes = 3 months follow up visit

Book your follow up appointment at your first visit so you know you're coming back!

That way you're be more likely to follow through with your lifestyle changes because there's a deadline!
