[QUOTE=itotito;3879844]A measure of 126 or higher would be a diagnosis of diabetes. They would probably do this twice to be sure

119 is in a state called pre-diabetes. Sometimes, with diet and excercise, a person can improve or even reverse pre-diabetes.

I hate it when the doc does that. they should provide a little info rather than spooking people.

119 is not the end of the world but may be a strong wake up call. Don't panic...weight loss, diet and excercise are options. If they don't work, medication is an option, but often weight loss goes a long way[/QUOTE]

Have you been diagnosed as diabetic? 131 is pretty high for fasting. How soon after eating was it 170? With your other symptoms, you should definitely see your doctor for an analysis.
