I'm not diabetic, yet. It runs in my family, my mother has type II.
My fasting sugars have always been in the low 60s. I noticed a few years ago, they creeped up to the 80s..still normal though.
Over the past 6 years, I've had 3 pregnancies, and with each I've gone from about 160 lbs (over weight) to about 230lbs. I did lose it with my first two.
Currently my ticker is about right. I'm struggling to lose the weight AGAIN, after baby # 3.
My endocrinologist (I have Hashi's and I'm on synthroid) was concerned because my last baby was large 9lb 6 oz. I did not have GD.
So he sent me for A1c, 2 hour GTT, and fast glucose.
I have not gotten the results to the A1c or the 2 hour GTT, but the fasting glucose was 97.
And the last time I ate was about 8 pm the night before and the lab wasnt drawn until about 10 am. Over 12 hours fasting, and it was 97.
I know that's normal, but I also know where this is heading.
Did any of you see this upward trend? If so how long did it take to cross over to pre diabetic? Did weight loss correct it all? Am I over reacting to go on a carb controlled or diabetic diet now? Up until these labs I was doing calorie counting, so if I wanted cookies or something sugar filled, I just budgeted it into my calories, but now I'm thinking maybe I should not be eating those foods at all.
I see my doc next week to go over these labs.
