Worried about getting diabetes in a few short months

My fasting blood sugar has always been around 103 the last few years and this year it jumped to 120. At this rate I'm worried I'll hit 126 within a few short months or even weeks.

Re: Worried about getting diabetes in a few short months

Well, since you've known you're pre-diabetic, have yoou done anything about it? Do you need to lose weight? Are you eating properly (managing your carb intake well)? Are you exercising? All of these things can help prevent the onset of actual diabetes.

Re: Worried about getting diabetes in a few short months

Thank you so much Ruth! Since I found out that I was at 120 two months ago I have used portion control to lose 14 pounds so far. I also exercise 30 minutes 6 days a week. However, I still eat carbs but have greatly reduced them.

Re: Worried about getting diabetes in a few short months

Yes, we all need some carbs...fruits and vegetables are carbs, and they are good for you. Whole grains also contain nutrients we need. As long as you drastically reduce the empty carbs (you know the stuff...loaded with sugar, loaded with white flour), and use portion control on the good stuff, you will do well.

Good for you!!! Keep up the good work and you may never have to deal with diabetes!

Re: Worried about getting diabetes in a few short months

Sounds like your trying very hard to do all the right things. Make sure you do a search on low carb and low glycemic foods to help you. Also try not to worry about it as stress alone can raise your glucose levels. Just keep focused on your diet and exercise and hopefully things will work out just fine.


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