Thank you for your response. The VA Medical Center where I am being treated states this as being diabetic and have prescribed me Metformin. I have not taken any awaiting my next test which they will not do until 3 months have passed. I am on a strict diet and have gone from 235 lbs to 227 lbs in 1 month. Hopefully this will bring down my glucose and A1C levels. I am 5'6" tall and in 2010 I underwent triple by-pass surgery. At the time of my heart attack, I was weighing 160 lbs.View Thread
