Re: Just found out I am borderline Diabetic

purplegirl, your FBG level would place you in the category labeled "pre-diabetic". I was in this category for years - with a FBG of 110 - and then finally had a couple of readings in the 120s' over the past three months.

So here is what I did - I continued the same low carb diet I have been on for several years - but during the past month I added fenugreek and cinnamon and a supplement from a health food store. The end result is that over the past two weeks my FBG has been consistently in the high 90s'.

Sounds good. We do, "The pH Miracle for Diabetes", and crazy as it seems my daughter is type 1 and needs no medication. Understanding the true cause and knowing what to do and doing it is key. Buy a meter to check your blood sugar at home.
