Re: Please help

Welcome...I'd just wait for the test results as it could be your blood sugar got a bit low or you also could have been a bit dehydrated if you fasted for a long time. I know my Dr. always tells me to drink a small glass of water before a fasting test as you do get a tad dehydrated. I always try to go to the lab about 8 a.m. as I fast from about 11 p.m. the night before.

Just keep yourself well hydrated today and hopefully you will feel much better. Hope your tests are all good news.

Best of wishes....JJ....

Re: Please help

Your more then welcome. I have had that happen a few times but usually feel better by mid afternoon. Hopefully your tests come back soon as I know I HATE waiting for the results. I now have my Dr. send me a copy as that way I get to see the results faster. Most of the time her staff is pretty fast, maybe 4 days and other times it is a week which makes me nuts.

Good luck and keep us posted..JJ....

Re: Please help

Yes, I was diagnosed 2 years ago through an A1c test that came back as 6.4. Dr. was extremely surprised as I usually always had low BS. She tested again 6 months later and it still came back as 6.4 so she put me on 500 mgs. of Metformin. Now I keep ranging between 6.2 and 6.4 and I refuse to take any larger doseage but she is happy with it the way it is ..so far.

Yes I have gotten that weakish feeling but only if I don't eat well the night before a test or drink enough fluids. Usually after my blood work I go right home and have a couple of cups of coffee and my oatmeal and then feel fine.

Keep me posted and good luck...JJ...

Re: Please help

Well glad the results were ok that should make you feel a lot better. Maybe you had some sort of weak virus or something that made you feel so weird. Usually if your sugar goes low you will get that shakey feeling and if you felt better after the coke, that's what it sounds like. I believe 6.6 in your country is an average of 118 which is good.

Really glad all turned out ok....JJ....

Re: Please help

Well mine came back with an A1c of 6.4 so that is a tad high although it still is not really bad. Dr. said although it was not that bad she would rather be pro active and put me on 500 mgs. of Metformin. So far I range from 6.2-6.4 on the meds. and as long as it stays that way I ain't messing with a higher doseage.

Hope your Thyroid comes back ok too. Trust me sweetie, I HATE needles too so it took me awhile before I got in the habit of checking my glucose and I still hate it.

Keep me posted and have a good day..JJ....
