I can empathise with your sutuation - who wants to be labelled? - but I think you need to bite the bullet and accept that you are, or most certainly will be, diabetic.
I was diagnosed Type 2 in April 2010. I promptly went low-carb (Atkins Induction), have lost 60lbs+, and seldom have a BG reading outside non-diabetic. If I went for diagnosis now I would not be labelled even pre-diabetic! But I am. I am still Type 2, and it only needs a couple of days off the wagon for my fasting BG to tell me that my pancreas still can't cope with too much glucose.
Diabetes is the best thing that ever happened to me - it gave me a real kick up the a**e. I now have
to diet - no more slipping on and off, no more knickers to it
. If I stop caring now, I could die, slowly and horribly. Yes, I still have bad times - but I have diabetes to pull me back. My best friend is my blood glucose meter - it tells me when my control is slipping.

It's more about what you do tomorrow than what you did yesterday.
Type 2 since April 2010, 3 x 500g Metformin, well controlled by low-carb.
