Hello - I hope everyone is having a lovely evening. I just joined this group after being recently diagnosed with prediabetes. My A1C was 6.1 as of last Tues. For context - I'm 40 M - 240 lbs 5’10. For one, I know I need to lose weight, change my diet, and exercise... The thing that has me super confused/worried is I seem to go through hypoglycemic events more than I do hyper. I just recently started measuring my blood via a glucose monitor (non-CGM), and most of the time, it appears to be well under what most sites describe as “high” or so. That's what I've learned and deduced from my resear ..read more

Hello everyone, Personal info: 22 y.o male. I weigh 215 lbs and I'm 6ft4in. I do not have a belly nor look fat( My last bmi showed that I have about 45-50% muscle mass). I am fairly active daily and play a sport similar to tennis (called padel) 2 or 3 times a week. Diet is clean for the most part, Avoiding seed oils and processed foods and soda. I think the worst part of my lifestyle is my sleep schedule, as I am a bit of an insomaniac, but I'm trying to work on that as well. Parents are not diabetic, but my maternal grandpa and paternal grandma got diabetes when they were older (in their 50s ..read more

Hey guys, got my blood test results back couple days ago and my a1c is 5.8 so my doctor said I’m prediabetic. I have family history of diabetes so I’m not surprised just a bit sad. I’m 28F, generally healthy, not exercising enough, maybe drinking too much coke (1 can per day). I have now cut out the coke completely. I bought the glucose meter and did some tests today. Before meal is 115, 1hr post meal is 180, 2hr post meal is 115. Granted I had pasta and a slice of pizza. My question is 180 too high? Do I need to cut back or as long as 2hr post back to normal then I’m okay? Edit: my BMI is 18 ..read more

My most recent fasting blood glucose level at my annual physical was 99. It has been gradually rising at every check over the last 4 years. For approximately the last 6 months, anytime I eat I get incredibly drowsy. After much experimentation, it seems the more sugar (including fruit) the worse it is. After sugary oatmeal and berries in the morning, it feels like I took 2 Benadryl. I have brain fog and increased anxiety, dull headaches that come and go. The fatigue is the true constant. My cortisol and estradiol are within range, but my total T is relatively low (around 400). Anytime I eat, l ..read more

I was on metformin er 500mg. Met with a endocrinologist and she said I really should have tried diet and exercise first before metformin. I told her about my appetite suppression and anxiety and low blood sugar episodes. So she told me to stop. It's been one day so far. How long til my appetite returns. I struggle to eat enough for my body's needs submitted by /u/Captain-Original [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Morning glucose levels

Background, I am the only non-diabetic from a large family. My mother (deceased) and my 5 siblings were/are insulin dependent type 2 diabetics. I’m the only holdout and I attribute it to my diet and the supplements I use. However, besides the obvious genetic predisposition, I have other factors not in my favor, and I keep my blood sugar checked, at least once daily. Here is where my conundrum is, and my endocrinologist cannot explain it either. My hba1c ranges from 4.9-5.4. More than half my tests have it at 5.2. So overall, ok. But when I first wake up in the morning, if I test before I do a ..read more

It took 4 years but I did it. In 19 I got injured and that injury basically ended me bodybuilding(for fun) I haven't lifted weights seriously since and I've maybe been to the gym 10 times since. The steroids they gave me made me gain 60 lbs... it was awful than during my long recovery after I gained all this weight I got two diagnosis morbid obese and pre diabetes. Honestly I didn't start taking any of this seriously until I started therapy in 23. Got anxiety and adhd medication and started eating healthy, and I got an exercise bike for under my desk. That's basically it diet and cardio like ..read more
