What type of diabetes?

Are there certain blood sugar levels that determine what type of diabetes one has? I was just diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. BG 219, A1c 8.2.

No actual test was done to determine what type in particular I had.

Re: What type of diabetes?

You can't tell by the numbers. The only way to tell for sure if it is type 1 as opposed to type 2 is to get antibody testing. Positive antibodies will mean type 1. That said, given your numbers, you are probably a type 2 as they are not that high.
