    Hello,
    I'm new to the whole forum thing so hope I'm going about this in an acceptable fashion.
    My story is quite straight forward, I have been getting upper stomach pain for some time and had various things shoved down my throat and ultimately got diagnosed with duodenitis and tried meds...no good... still had the pain was feeling tired all the time, getting headaches and urinating a lot so got bloods done. Cut a long stroy short my fasting blood glucose is 6.3 - I'm slim, 45, relatively fit with no family history of diabetes. The Doc says get it rechecked in 12months
    I was wondering:
    1. If anyone else had experienced a similar set of symptoms?
    2. What advice to bring the ol' blooods down?
    I really appreciate any feedback
    all best
    Shaun

    Hi Shaun sorry to hear of your painful stomach problems.. I had upper abdominal pain, severe at times, before I was diagnosed with Coeliac disease . Did you actually have an Endoscopy? as I had that procedure with a biopsy taken.
    I hope you can get a proper diagnosis soon and the correct medical treatment to help with the pain. Take care

    Click to expand... Hi Shaun,
    I am afraid I don't know what may cause the stomach problems. I hope it can be sorted out for you.
    As for bringing the blood sugar levels down, I would advise you to read as much in this forum as you can. I am prediabetic as well and have managed to control them (i.e. bring them back to a normal range) by cutting out starchy and refined carbohydrate foods (no bread, potatoes, rice, pasta, and obviously no sweets, cakes, biscuits).
    I also would suggest you buy yourself a meter and check your blood yourself. Often doctors advise to come back in a few months, or a year, and in the meantime your prediabetes may just get worse. Unless you know what food raises your blood sugar, you cannot do anything about it.
    Amazon sells the Codefree meter, which will be cheapest for test strips. Check yourself in the morning when you get up (before you eat or drink anything) and then check after you eat (one and two hours afterwards). You will soon get the hang of it and see what your average readings are.
    Good luck and tell us how you get on.
