From the 2008 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System:
About how often do you check your blood for glucose or sugar? Include times when checked by a family member or friend, but do not include times when checked by a health professional.
Have you EVER been told by a doctor or health professional that you have diabetes or sugar diabetes?
[For females, if yes:]
Was this only when you were pregnant?
Persons are considered to have diabetes if they have ever been told by a doctor or health professional that they have diabetes or sugar diabetes. Women who report that the only time they have been diagnosed with diabetes was during pregnancy (gestational diabetes) are excluded. Persons who reported borderline or prediabetes are also excluded.
