when the blood tests under normal circumstance shows abnormal values where it is not clear about whether you are suffering from diabetes or not, then they do more tests to confirm the cause of the abnormal blood values. so you will be put in the category of suspected diabetes and investigated to know whether you are having diabetes or not.
