    Smile Diabetes???

    I have had wierd symptoms with out diagnosis for a long time. I find that I am very sensitive to simple carb (like sugar or cereal in the morning) and don't have it often because it makes me feel so off. In the meantime, I am hungry often and only feel better when I eat. I have tingling in left chest area and tongue, among other symptoms which I won't elaborate on here, but what I want advice on is my relationship with my doctors.

    I have had the blood glucose (fasting for 8 hours) test many times and it comes out normal so I am told I don't have a problem with diabetes. All my other blood tests come out normal too (except cholesterol).

    Should I insist on having it looked into? Or are my doctors corrrect? It is my understanding that people with undiagnosed diabetes crave simple carbs, which is the opposite of me. Any advice or personal experiences would sooo appreciated. Thanks!

    Re: Diabetes???

    m113, do you know what your fasting glucose levels were those many times you were told they were normal? Often what's normal to mainstream doctors turns out to be abnormal in reality. If your fasting levels were below 99mg/dL (or 5.5mmol/L), or better below 90mg/dL (5mmol/L), you might be far from diabetes. But anything higher than 99 after 8-hour fasting should alert you.
