It sounds like your problem is something called impaired glucose tolerance meaning that extra glucose builds up quickly. I'm sure you will be ok as long as you follow a good diet that is reasonably low in carbohydrates. Make sure you see your doctor on a regular basis since this could become worse over time.

Doctors always want us to test less, but I always point out that that is like going into the Sahara without a GPS… No way to know where you are, were you've been or where you're going.
