Five Things You Should Know About Prediabetes

After announcing the expansion of Diabetes Stops Here and asking you which topics you’d like covered, we received a specific request for more information about prediabetes. A staggering 79 million Americans deal with this condition, and while it can lead to crippling health consequences, it can be avoided. Here are five things you should know about prediabetes: 1. What is prediabetes? Before people develop type 2 diabetes, they almost always have prediabetes, a health condition where your blood glucose is higher than normal but not as high as if you had diabetes. 2. How can I find out if I have it? Your doctor can give you a blood test to tell if you have prediabetes (the same test that’s used to test for diabetes).

    Latest fasting BS 106 at Dr. but still have ?'s

    Okay got my lab results the other day. My fasting blood sugar was 106, my doctor said that was normal. My last one six months ago and about 15 pounds ago was 110. His lab report says 70-106 normal. I am keeping on top of this because both my parents are type 2. I am worried though, I have tingling in my fingers and toes alot and seem to drink all day long. When I eat out I can go through 4 glasses of water. If my fasting is 106, am I worried over nothing?

    I dont think your worried over nothing, first question is do you test 2 hrs after your heaviest meal. Fasting is always the last to go high, I would say if you dont have a meter go and get one maybe walmarts relion there cheaper and good. If you have the issues you talk about you could be running higher without knowing it. Did the doc run an a1c lab work on you, it would have told your 3 month average.

    I think 106 is in the prediabetic range in the US. If you have a gut feeling and are getting tingling in your fingers I would be careful of your carb intake and make sure you incorperate exercise every day. Many pre D's find that their bgs will jump significantly if they don't closely monitor.
