Re: New and concerned
That's exactly what it sounds like...pre-diabetes (or impaired glucose tolerance, or insulin resistance) but not full-blown diabetes, YET!
This is, in fact, an excellent bit of news for you. Too many people are not warned when their numbers start going up, so they don't have the opportunity to take action until they've already started developing symptoms of diabetes, by which time there may be some permanent damage.
So, this wake up call is actually a great opportunity in disguise. I know how difficult it can be to exercise with FM, as I also have it. If you haven't been exercising regularly, you have to start off VERY, VERY slowly...just five minutes a day. And when you start feeling okay with 5 minutes, don't increase it to 25 minutes...increase it by 5-minute increments. Exercise is actually very good for FM, and once I got up to about 1/2 hour even three times a week, I started feeling much better. And, of course, it'll help your body overcome its insulin resistance.
And low-carbing is good, too. Weight loss will also help, but here again...do it slowly. You're much more likely to stick with it and keep it off if you don't go on such a restricted diet that you can't live with it for more than a couple of months.
At this point, you have an excellent chance of reversing the course of this illness, so grab on to it!
