Hello Diabetes Board.

I went to the ER yesterday, feeling VERY weak in the legs, out of it mentally, mild headache and just absolutely EXHAUSTED. They did a blood sugar test which incidentally was about 2 hours after eating. Blood sugar was 185. The blood CBC shows blood sugar at 119 from around the same time. Doc says that in all of the 5 or 6 visits to the er over the last year, blood sugar in CBC is 112 or above, and that that is a sign of Diabetes, and that I most likely have it.

Any thoughts on this? Symptoms add up, blood sugar levels not so much from what I have heard. Aldo, morning fasting levels have been around 109-111.

Any ideas?

Re: Really??

From the numbers you quoted, it sounds more like you are what they used to call "pre-diabetic". The numbers are slightly elevated, but not significantly. Sorry, but the symptoms you describe would be more associated with extreme glucose levels, not one of 185. More like 300 or more.

Sorry I can't be more help. In the meantime, I would cut back on carbs and up your exercise. This might help although I know it's hard to get going.
