I am getting it, b/c my mother had diabetes. But I just have to drink a Coke before I go to the MW.

I'd rather know for sure one way or another. But if you're planning to cheat, I see no reason to spend the money and time on the test in the first place.
Gee, that turned out longer and rantier than I planned. LOL! Sorry.
