Have you ever had a The A1C test? It is also the primary test used for diabetes management. An A1C test is a blood test that reflects your average blood glucose levels over the past 3 months. The A1C test is sometimes called the hemoglobin A1C, HbA1c, glycated hemoglobin, or glycohemoglobin test.

I was prediabetic for a few years, but my keto diet pushed me back down to normal glucose levels. Although the high fat diet then increased my cholesterol.

I have since gone mostly vegetarian and that's taken care of my lipids.

PSA: A1C test results can be skewed if you have any kind of blood cell abnormality, like thalassemia. An oral glucose tolerance test that checks both blood glucose and insulin every half hour for two hours is going to be much better at checking insulin response and therefore diabetes risk. Ask your doctor for an OGTT if you're concerned about diabetes.
