Hi Jennifer - before I was actually diagnosed I used a friend's glucose meter and did a little self-test after a dinner out (pasta of all things ) He brought a new lancet for me to use. I tested right before dinner, then two hours later. My scores were elevated so that's what made me speak to my doctor about it. I had no symptoms whatsoever as far as thirst, frequent urination etc.
I'm not sure if this is recommended but maybe you could use a clean lancet from one of your parent's supply and try it out? Your parents can certainly help you decipher the score. It's not the same as a lab test, but might leave enough of a question mark to make you want to pursue this with your own doctor? Just a suggestion....
