Did you see how many carbs are in your protein drink? Sometimes there is way too much sugar in there, not just the protein. You can find sugar free whey products and that might help.

I am not a fan of the "pre-diabetic" diagnosis. It is a perfect time to really start looking at how you can get your fasting levels back below 100 with diet and exercise. Catching it early can be a huge game changer for people who take it seriously.

Have you asked your doctor about what kind of goals they may have for you?

Did you mean to say "exercise" instead of "excrescence"? I've attached a link to the American Diabetes Association's explanation of the test levels used to differentiate between pre-diabetes and diabetes. http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/diagn...
With the fasting levels you describe, you fall between pre-diabetes and diabetes with fasting BG levels of 100-125 mg/dl denoting pre-diabetes and levels above 126 mg/dl indicating diabetes. Alcohol is tricky. Here's the link to an Diabetic Connect article that discusses how alcohol can affect a person with diabetes: http://www.diabeticconnect.com/diabetes-infor...
