So I’m new to all this and I know alotttt about type 2 but not any other types really. I haven’t been truly diagnosed yet but my GP is thinking there’s something up because my symptoms are diabetic. Shaking/headaches, insatiable thirst, frequent urination, numbness/tingling in my toes/feet.
I don’t really know about my dads side since I live with my mom but my moms side has many type 2 diabetics (mom, aunt, grandfather and his siblings etc). I didn’t realize you could be athletic small build and low weight/bmi but still be type 2? I just turned 24 and I’m only 5 ft and weigh 115.
I’m waiting on the bloodwork to come in a1c?, glucose, and some others she had ticked off. In the mean time I got my own metre (cheap one from Walmart) and the readings I’ve gotten so far are :
Friday was 8.9 mmol 2 hours after eating dinner, Yesterday morning was 6.9 when I woke up and 2 hours after lunch yesterday was 8.4, I just had a reallyyyy small bowl of rice today because it was one of those quick microwave ones and glucose was 7.7, I haven’t tested yet from dinner tonight cuz I got home late from practice and due to test at 11 cuz I ate at 9.
Any insight would be helpful. Apparently I can’t be type 1? But I don’t see how I could be type 2. I know the readings aren’t crazy high but they aren’t all “normal” either.
