I do not have diabetes but got some home blood glucose readings (150-160 mg/dl [8.3-8.9 mmol/L]) that have lead me to believe that there is a chance. Would these readings contribute to my extreme fatigue and headaches?


You need to have your sugar checked in a standard fashion to determine whether you have diabetes. The readings of 150-160 mg/dl [8.3-8.9 mmol/L] on a fingerstick are not diagnostic of anything.
