How is diabetes diagnosed ?

How is diabetes diagnosed ?
The Haute autorité de santé has issued recommendations for the screening and diagnosis of diabetes.

A blood test on an empty stomach or after taking a sugar solution is necessary. However, it is necessary to check this result several times to be sure. But from a value of 1g/l on an empty stomach, you should be wary. Blood glucose levels between 1 and 1.26g/l already indicate glucose intolerance.
After the age of 45, in a family where there are diabetics, it is advisable to test your blood sugar every year.

Diabetes screening is also routine in the 6th month of pregnancy.
