Smile Diabetes

Here is my problem. I was not yet diagnosed as a diabetic...But I am greatly concern because my A1C is 5.9 and my glucose was 96. I did not eat on the day of the test.

My BMI is 29. I am 173lbs. 5'4""
Age 66

I am exercising 6 days a week. Doing the ARC machine and zumba on the 6th day. Sometimes I ride the bike and also walk about 2 miles.

I am planning on following The End of Diabetes: The Eat to Live Plan to Prevent and Reverse Diabetes . I just research and found the book.

I do not want to take medications for it does not get at the main cause of the disease.

Also I have hypothyroid and hypertension. Currently on meds for these. Synthroid and Benicar.

I have cause to worry about this right....but can and is it possible to reverse this?

Thank you for your advice.

Re: Diabetes

Perhaps you are more concerned than you need to be. Neither your FBG nor your A1c are in the diabetic range. Yes, your BMI would indicate that you are overweight, but it sounds as though you are working on that with your exercise program. I have no idea whether the book to which you refer is a good one or not - I'm simply not familiar with it - but if you are concerned about diabetes, it certainly is a good idea to consider one's diet. Many people eat too many calories and too many carbohydrates and in particular, high glycemic carbohydrates.
