Let me start by saying that I haven't been diagnosed as diabetic. It runs in my family (grandmother and 3 aunts, dad is borderline). Given that fact, I always make sure that they check my blood sugar. Up until about 2 years ago it was less than 90. Last year it was 98 and I think the year before that it was 90 something. The doctor didn't seem concerned. This time I asked them to do the a1c. My a1c was. My glucose level was 119 which I realize is high 5.6. I had eaten quite a bit of sugar the few days before that so that might explain the glucose level even though it was high. Right?View Thread
