    Hello, Go to my blog, " 7 important numbers people with diabetes need to know". It is located at As you can see your numbers do correspond to the numbers that would diagnose diabetes. I would recommend you call your physician immediately to get your blood work tested. You should bring your glucometer and test your blood glucose at the same time to make sure your machine is accurate. If your meter was correct, your doctor can also order the correct medication to help you. Please let us know how you make out. Clara Schneider MS,RD,RN,CDE,LDN
