Does a Fasting Glucose of 125 Mean I Have Diabetes?

I also notice after eating, especially dinner, that the tips of my big toes especially the right one burn and are tender. It hurts to have them under the blankets. Could I be diabetic! I am also constantly going to the bathroom!

Hello and welcome to the forum. Thank you for the question.  Have you undergone testing recently?  I would think that your results would trigger further evaluation from your doctor.  Normally to be diagnosed with diabetes, you need to have had two fasting glucose tests at or greater than 126.  Fasting glucose levels of 70 to 100 are considered normal.  Yours are elevated and right on the cut off. https://www.webmd.com/diabetes/diagnosing-type-2-diabetes#1  What is your doctor saying about this?

You should see your doctor to rule out inflammatory arthritis such as gout.
