"Smaller meals spread out is a good idea! Much easier for your pancreas to handle & to keep BG more level. It's great that you're keeping on top of this. Doctors often don't take our concerns seriously. Really, is there even a…"

"Gerri, Thanks for the reply. I have not been officially diagnosed, based on my age/weight/health my doctor thinks Im worried about nothing, which is why I am concerned about LADA, I just don't fit the profile in any way (if there even is a…"

"Hi Drew, When you were diagnosed, were GAD antibody & C-peptide tests done to measure how much your pancreas is under attack & how much insulin you're producing? Was a glucose tolerance test done? Morning fasting can be effected by…"

"I have been concerned that I am an early type 1.5. Would my insulin's ability to drive my levels down below fasting numbers after a high carb meal indicate otherwise?. I think I could "mentally" take it a little bit better if I new…"

glucose lower than fasting several hours after eating?

Hello all,I posted awhile back about some of my concerns (i.e. "healthy" 31 yo with fasting glucose of 103/104). Well I recently did another test with a burrito (53g of carbs total). After not eating for a 5 hours I was at 100. After eating the burrito I was 165 at 1 hour, I missed the 2 hour test but at 3 hr I was at 100, 4 hrs it was down all the way to 79 (tested 2x to make sure). I this a type of reactive hypoglycemia, even though I wasn't technically hypoglycemic? How could it be lower…See More

"Thanks for for all the helpful replies. It's good to know that if I do happen to develop diabetes, there are a lot of people out there willing to help! I'll talk to my doctor the next time and ask for some additional testing."

"If it would give you piece of mind, go ahead and push it with your doctor. BUT, I REALLY WOULDN'T BE CONCERNED RIGHT NOW. Your numbers look pretty normal after those foods. I know they say non diabetics don't go over 140, but I've…"

"Normal A1c is 4.6-4.9. Not that 5.3 & 5.2 aren't good, but it's not the A1c of a "normal" person. A1c of 5.2 is an average of 103. An A1c of 4.6 is an average of 89. Normal BG is in the 80's."

"I had an A1c done in Jan 2007 for a life insurance exam it was 5.3%. I also had one done June 2009, it was 5.2%. These are pretty normal numbers from what I read."

"Hi Drew, Normal fasting is under 100 & post-prandial readings of 140-160 isn't normal either, so you're smart to be testing! Some diabetics have normal fasting, but spikes after eating. Since most doctors use fasting BG as an initial…"

exercise and bg

I currently consider myself pre-diabetic (fasting 103-109 and some post-prandial peaks at 140-160) even though my Dr. doesn't and I'm wondering if I am more insulin resistent or deficient. I am in my thirties and not overweight. Ive noticed that if I do 30 or more minutes of aerobics that my blood glucose will barely elevate if I eat within a few hours after working out. I had ice cream the other night after working out and I was only at 87 1 hr after eating? Would this point more to an insulin…See More

"I'd push the issue. The best that happens is you find out it's nothing, and in the worst case, you'll have a heads-up on what you need to be doing to keep things under control."

"My doctor basically told me I am worried about nothing. I'll have to press the issue I guess. In the meantime, it's lowered carbs and lots of exercise for me."

"Hi Drew: Has a doctor told you that you are pre-diabetic? If you are young and fit, and a doctor has told you that you are pre-diabetic, it is good to consider it might be early LADA. The definitive test for Type 1 autoimmune diabetes (at any age of…"

Welcome! I wanted to respond to your post about being concerned about higher blood sugars. Doctors only like to treat acute illness, because it has more answers. You might try a naturopathic doctor; they believe more about getting the body into a better state, and not waiting for acute problems. Then go to an Endo when you can't get numbers down with good diet and exercise?
