Hello… I am BRAND new to this community.
Back in May, I was diagnosed as a pre-diabetic as my A1C level was 5.9. I was shocked, but not nearly as much as when I found out soon after that my medical history had indicated numbers that were as high as 5.8, but never mentioned by my regular GP.
He told me there was no cause for concern: just watch what I eat & exercise.
I was floored by his cavalier attitude, but not surprised at the diagnosis: at 62 & 205 lbs, I’ve had the diet of a 12 year old, topped off by a deadly sweet tooth. I knew the day would come.
Well for 3 months, I dieted, exercised & laid off carbs & sugar (for the most part).
I lost 20 lbs. 2 weeks ago I had the test done again expecting a significant decrease: it was 5.8!! I was really surprised that it barely changed. My GP response: “I don’t know., maybe it’s just who you are… it’s no big deal. Just keep doing what you’re doing.”
I’m curious what your reaction would be to what’s transpired since Memorial Day weekend. Thanks!
