After complaining to my doctor about some symptoms (extreme hunger, shakiness, sweats, etc.), I had some bloodwork done. Everything looked great except for my AC1 level which was listed as just barely high (5.7).
I've been hearing mixed responses to this. Am I prediabetic? Is there even such a thing? I asked if I should do a fasting glucose test since I wasn't fasting for the first one. My doctor did order one but says my levels are normal.
My main concern is that I actually ate healthy all along. I did have occasional desserts and flavored lattes (1-2 per week) which I've now cut out. I'm just wondering why my levels would be that high since I was pretty careful about my carb intake and ALWAYS ate protein with meals and snacks. I had gestational diabetes and continued to follow that diet with some extras (but not excessive).
Do you think a fasting glucose test is enough or should I ask to do the 3 hour one? Any advice and insight you have would be appreciated! I definitely want to get control of this now! Thank you!
