fasting blood test

I had some blood tests last week and now i have received a letter from my doctor asking me for a fasting blood test ,normally they only contact u if something is wrong. I have been suffering from extreme tiredness and i am over weight i am 52 and male . I an worried that i might have type 2 diabetes.

Re: fasting blood test

Yes, you might. If, in fact, you do have T2, ask your doctor for a referral to a registered dietician for advice on meal planning. And try to find a way to exercise...even walking for just 10 minutes at a time, a few times a day, will help.

Re: fasting blood test

Elevated triglycerides are seen in diabetes, but it's not the only reason.
