I am 59 and I was diagnosed with what the endo called pre-diabetes in March 2005. Yeah sure pre-Diabetes. My mother and her 2 brothers and sisters al were diagnosed in their 50’s. In 2005 my numbers were modest. One fasting above 126 and one below. A1c Of 6.2… To date my a1c has never been that high again. It runs from 5.3 to 5.8 at most. Recently the endo took me off the 15mg of Actos that I have been taking. We shall see.
This kind of support group can be a really wonderful help to people and I hope to learn and participate here and get to know people.
