Tests and diagnosis

How we find out if you have diabetes

Your GP will ask you about your symptoms and will probably ask for a urine sample, which will be tested for the presence of glucose and ketones.

Your doctor will also need to take a small sample of blood to test and so check the levels of glucose in your blood.

There is a lot of further information available about the symptoms of diabetes and how it is diagnosed on the following web-sites:

NHS Choices

Information about the symptoms and diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes

Information about the symptoms and diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes

Information about the symptoms and diagnosis of gestational
