Are you asking whether your partner has Type 2 diabetes if her blood sugar level is 2.2 mmol/l (millimoles per litre), sir?
If you are, then no ... unless she is taking medications that lower her blood sugar level.
A blood sugar level of 2.2 mmol/l indicates that she is hypoglycaemic [hypoglycemic, for our American cousins]. This needs to be investigated by her doctor as blood sugar levels that low are NOT normal, and could be very serious.
Your partner should immediately treat this low blood sugar level by drinking some regular pop/soda, or taking 2 tablespoons of sugar in water ... dissolve it in hot water, then add cold water for her to be able to drink it.
Follow up this initial treatment with your partner eating something more substantial ... things such as a sandwich, etc. This should prevent her blood sugar from falling low again soon after.
If your partner has already been diagnosed as suffering with type 2 diabetes, her medication(s) need to be reviewed by her doctor as either the dose is too large OR she is not eating a sufficient quantity of carbohydrates.

As long as she is doing fine and consults with her health care provider then shes ok but it seems a bit low the ranges is 4-7 mmol/L before meals and under 8.5mmol/L

Best bet is to see the doctor, get the proper diet to follow and to monitor any medications
