Blood glucose level - 6.7

My blood glucose level after a 12 hour fast is 6.7 which I believe is the pre diabetes range. I'm a 6'3" male, mid twenties, 185lbs ~ 10% BF%. I exercise, don't eat sugar and only have a bit of pasta/potatoes etc most of my carbs are from fruit/vegetables. Just tried a diabetes strip urine test which came back negative but still worried that it is too high. No history of diabetes in my family. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Re: Blood glucose level - 6.7

Yup, definitely pre-diabetes range (120.6 for our American friends). It could be a couple of things. Keep in mind that you don't have to have a family history of diabetes to get it. In addition to that, you don't have to be a kid to get type 1 either. I would talk to the doctor and get some further testing as it could also be something like MODY as well (a genetic disorder that causes less insulin to be produced).

This is definitely something that you need to keep an eye on. On the plus side you can live a long, healthy, fun and fulfilling life with diabetes, not matter what type you have.

Re: Blood glucose level - 6.7

One thing that I have been told, and I am diabetic, is to stay away from white foods like rice and potatoes. It sounds like you're doing all of the right things.
