    Am I diabetic?

    I did my insulin tests last week.
    The blood test was done 2 hours after my breakfast.

    Here are my readings

    Glucose - 84
    A1C - 6.3%
    Insulin - 68.2 uIU/mL


    Am I prediabetic or diabetic or normal?

    If not normal, can I reduce using natural foods/supplements?

    A base blood sugar test will be accurate only after 8 or so hours fasting. Try having the test under those conditions and go from there. Sera

    My fasting glucose has always been less than 100.
    I never had insulin test after fasting so far.
