Hello I am new to this group and finding out a lot of information. 3 months ago my A1C was 6.0 my Dr. said to consider myself a Diabetic and to try Diet and Exercise then come back in 3 months. Well I got rid of ALL soda's! Pepsi was my drug of choice (LOL)… I never drank water. Now all I drink is PLAIN water!! I did drop some pounds but this waking up with Blurry vision every morning is for the birds!! It lasts a few hours… I don't know if I am high or low so I don't know what to do. This is all new to me and I am sooo FRUSTRATED already. I started a new job last week and only worked 2 days because I almost passed out …went to lunch and felt a little better. I also drive school bus and I don't feel safe driving like this. I made an appt. with my Dr. and he sent me for blood work. My fasting BS was 114 and my A1C came back 6.1… higher then 3 months ago and after changing my whole diet. I am under a tremendous amount of stress due to my marriage falling apart but I doubt that is the reason my sugars are high. The Dr. says he doesn't want to tell the insurance I am Diabetic so I am not taking anything or testing as of yet. I have another appt. today for the follow up of blood work. I am sooo discouraged and hate feeling this way… I just feel OFF! How do I regain my life?
