I recently underwent a physical to join the military. I received a letter disqualifying me because it said I was hyperglycemic (no other details). I just went to the county health department to have my blood sugar measured, and it came out to 102 (fasting). I asked the nurse if it was hyperglycemic and she said yes. Checking on the internet, most health websites say that a normal count is between 70 and 120. My question is, am I in the normal range or not? If I can get a doctor to write me a written statement that my count is normal I can likely get the disqualification overturned, or at least use it as cause for the granting of a waiver. Do some doctors use different scales to determine hyperglycemia?
This will have a huge bearing on my future, so any helpful information would be greatly appreciated.
