Pre-Diabetes??

Hi,

I recently had a scare when my blood work after my physical came back as fasting blood sugar being 110 mg/dL (last year it was 83).

I immediately went to see an endocrinologist and had an hA1C test, which came back as 5.5 (normal according to my doc). I also purchased a trueResult glucose reader and test my fasting blood sugar daily: it is an average of 92.

One hour after eating a Subway sandwich (102 g of carbs), my glucose was 159 mg/dL, but two hours later it came down to 96 mg/dL. I try to eat healthy and lift weights 4 times a week. I'm a 28 yr old male at 5 ft 10 and weigh 195 lbs. Am I classified as pre-diabetic? Should I be concerned?

Thanks so much for your help,

Leo

Re: Pre-Diabetes??

Hi there,

I wanted to know how you've been doing. My fasting numbers are in the 90s and A1c is 5.6 % ( a few months ago it was 5.2%). I think I am in a simialr boat as you. Are you classified as pre diabetic? What are you doing to control it ?
