Dear Anon, 7.9 mmol is the equivalent to about 142 mg/dl which is substantially high if you were fasting when you took this glucose test.

A normal fasting glucose result should be below 126 mg/dl or 7.0 mmol. Have you been experiencing any of these symptoms?
* Weight loss
* Increased urination
* Extreme thirst
* Hunger
* Fatigue
* Blurry vision
* Irritability
* Frequent or recurring infections
* Poor wound healing
* Angina
* Painful leg cramps when walking
* Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
* In women: frequent vaginal yeast infections
* Problems with gums
* Itching

This one episode does not diagnose you as a diabetic but it may be a good idea to have some blood work drawn to ensure that maybe you didn't eat something late the night before that may have raised your blood sugar so high.

Here is some more information for you:
