Going to try to make a long story short. First, I lost my aunt to Type 1 diabetes 6 months ago. She was a well know neonatal Neurologist at Rileys Children's Hospital in Indianapolis.
Ok, back to me. About 6 weeks ago I went to see my doc because I was having strange vision. My vision would go blurry and I was seeing floaters, lots of them. He sent me to see eye doc. All was normal with my eyes other than having a lot of floaters. Fast forward, over the last few weeks I've felt off. Still having vision issues and now very fatigued, I just feel off, also very hungry. Made an appointment to see my doc again and he decided to do some labs. Nurse called me today to tell me that my lab results were great except my glucose was 204 and my a1c was 5.8. She told me that the doc was not concerned because of my size and age. I'm 32, 4'11" and 94 lbs. I asked her if she was sure those were ok results and she said yes if doc is not worried you shouldn't be. Well, I'm worried! Especially after just losing my aunt to diabetes! Are these numbers concerning? Should I get a second opinion??
