I WAS DIAGNOSED IN FEB OF 2008. ONE DR. SAID I WAS PRE-DIABETIES AND ANOTHER SAID I WAS TYPE 2. I WAS PUT ON PILLS METAFORMAN AND MY SUGAR DROPPED TO 50. THE HIGEST MY BLOOD SUGAR HAS BEEN IN 154 AND THAT WAS AFTER SPAGETTI AND ITALIAN BREAD AND WINE. IT USUALLY RUNS BETWWEN 80 AND 106. I WAS 180 LBS IN JANUARY. I LOST WEIGHT AND EXERSIZE ON BIKE EVERY DAY. I NOW WEIGH 147LBS. THIS HAS SCARED ME TO DEATH. NO ONE IN MY FAMILY HAS DIABETIES AS I HAD THOUGHT. WELL, MY DAD DIED IN APRIL HE WAS 94 AND MY MOM 90 LIVED IN A INDEPENDENT LIVING APARTMENT IN COLUMBUS, OHIO. I WENT HOME FOR FUNERAL AND MY MOTHER HIS ME WITH MY DAD WAS NOT MY DAD. SHE SAID THAT MY FATHER WAS MY DADS BROTHER. WOW WHAT A SHOCK. NOW MY DADS BROTHER HAD SUGAR AND SOME OF HIS CHILDREN ALSO HAVE TYPE 2. SO THIS TELLS ME WHERE IT CAME FROM. I HAVE HAD NO SWEETS SINCE FEB. NOW AM I TYPE 2 OR PRE-DABETIES. IF YOU GOT IT —-YOU GOT IT RIGHT?

Have you had a AC1 if so that will tell the dr where you are at sugar wise over the last few months,
you might be borderline, if you really watch what you eat, get the weight off you might be a lucky one that can do with diet control and no meds.
157 after eating is a really good score, I am still jumping to 170 area when I eat a pasta.
roots for you keep going your doing really good!!!!!!!!!!
