A blood test is the only way to tell if you are diabetic so get on ASAP!!

You say your a1c is 6 so tell us how you know that without a blood test or doctor visit??

You want us forum members to diagnose whether you have diabetes ?

One reading is not enough info to make that diagnosis.
See your doctor and look for a diabetic clinic in your area..

Sound like it to me. If your fasting BS is above 100 chances are good you are pre-diabetic or diabetic. A1C is an indirect indicator of the last 3 months of blood sugars and it is high (anything above 5.5 or 6 is borderline), suggesting diabetes. Go see a doctor!
