All this time I was so focused on helping my husband deal with diabetes that I forgot that I have family history of diabetes too. This time when I visited India to see my family, I discovered that two of my cousins (sons of my aunt on father’s side) had T2 early, one just approaching 30 and the other probably approaching 40. I went to the university health center and said I want to do an A1C the doctor said she doesn’t think I need one and did a morning BG reading. It was 87. That was in August.
Off and on (3-4 times a month) I check my morning BG with my husband’s glucometer. It used to be between 85 and 90. Lately it has been between 95 and 100. I saw a 100 last Saturday and got really scared. Should I be concerned that I am pre diabetic? Or that I am getting there? Am I overthinking this?
What can I do to prolong getting diabetes as much as possible?
