Fasting glucose at 7.0 - I'm worried!
I recently had my blood sugar measure during a routine blood test and exam, and it was 7.0 mmol/L.
My doctor told me that I shouldn't worry, only if it is as high as maybe 10 or 15, but I've read in serious medical magazines that any fasting blood glucose AT or above 7.0 mmol is EQUAL to diabetes!
I've asked other doctors and they don't seem to worry, but I am, because I feel they are all ignoring the very fact that I am developing diabetes!
The only alternate explanation for high blood glucose is that I've read somewhere on the net that blood glucose may rise during physical or emotional stress like infection. I remember the day I had the blood test done: I had a mild fever and had a sore throat. Before before the blood test I had a panic attack. About 30 minutes before I had to undergo the exam and blood test, my pulse might have been well above 120 bpm. (during the EKG test my pulse was over 120).
Can anyone confirm if a panic attack + infection can cause a fasting blood glucose to rise to 7.0?
What do I do?
