Re: Do I have diabetes?

It's possible you might be Diabetic or even Pre Diabetic. Before you start worrying yourself into a frazzle...do as the above poster said..get an A1c done. It's very simple test, don't even need to fast. This way if your getting Diabetic you can maybe adjust your foods and exercise to avoid meds.

If you have a meter or know of someone who does, you can test yourself. Fasting glucose should be between 80-110 and 2 hrs. after a meal should be below 140. Do a search on low glycemic foods and also low carb foods. Eating properly will definately help whether you are or not.

All the best...JJ....
