Ok so I'm 2 weeks into my testing, and so far, with no meds and eating a healthy (recommended by dietitian) meal for 2 weeks now, my fasting bg average is 94 and has never been above 100. My 2 hour post meal testings for all 3 meals has never been above 140. All this without medicine, so I am a little frustrated here. Do I have diabetes or not… My doctor said because my A1C was a 9.4, that means i definitely do have type 2, but after reading many reports from the ADA and other medical sites, its clear that using the A1C test to diagnose diabetes is not conclusive. So all this being said, what would you do?
I am very thankful that my doctor brought my bad eating habits and the dangers of the road i was travelling down, but i cant help but think her diagnosis here is wrong. I've been trying to find a doctor who does a glucose testing method, but so far no luck. (all inquires tell me to ask a OBGYN doctor to do it, problem is i am a Male and do not have an OBGYN doctor.)
Ugh so frustrated. But on a positive note, In 3 months of my diet plan from www.sparkpeople.com, i am down 30lbs and counting. 295 to 265 in a little under 3 months!
