I was diagnosed with diabetes about 2 years ago. I had a glucose test done. The hour reading was 209 and the 2 hour reading was 249. I recently had an AC1 test done and that was 5.7. Does this mean that I no longer have diabetes or does it just mean that I have it under control. I have one doctor say that I don't have it another says I do, but it's under control?

  • It means its under control (hba1c < 6.4). you can repeat the glucose tolerance test to see if you still have it...
