I realize that sounds (possibly is) oxymoronic, but it has been puzzling me for several years. My blood sugars have always been weird, but since my first pregnancy 13 years ago, my sugars have always run slightly high. I was GDM for three babies and none had any birth complications. I have an A1C from after my first pregnancy and before my second that was 5.6. Fast forward 6 years and I have an A1C of 6.1. Increased my exercise and stopped eating carbs without fat and/or protein and over the last 5 years I have maintained a level right around 5.8. This despite a low c-peptide score (near the normal minimum to below the minimum on the chart from the lab). Over the last 6 months life has been stressful and I have been very busy and gotten little exercise, little sleep, and been very stressed out. And... nothing has changed - still A1C around 5.8 and low c-peptide. I'm just wondering if it is theoretically possible that this is a normal state for me and I am not destined to progress to full-blown diabetes.
Just curious if I am living in a fantasy land. Thanks!
