Yeah, Madmac...102, my doctors made me take it twice and also didn't take it lightly.
It's always been 97 for as long as I can remember.
Maybe they freaked out because I'm 45 pounds overweight (lost 5 since they told me) and it was my FASTING bs.
Normal now stops at 99 according to most sites and lab slips.
I'm stable on meds, not depressed and haven't had a manic episode for 20 years.
I need all the sleep I can get, don't smoke, don't drink coffee and will barely drink alcohol now.
A variety of antidepressants contributed to my 50 lb. weight gain. It seems much harder to get the weight off while they are in your system.
Thanks for the hint about A1c, but I can't find that anywhere on the 4 pages of bloodwork. I didn't see anything even close to that.
I appreciate your post, Madmac.

Of course, depression and hypomania mean you either can't take care of your self, or you don't care, you're a superman who can survive on 4 hours sleep, smokes and sugared coffee and diabetic complications won't get you (though BS might be 300+). The number to watch though, is your A1c- that tells you long term control for a diab, and your body's ability to control if not diab.
