I am a 44-year-old male. I am 6'1" and weigh about 245. I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure (take 50mg tablet of atenolol 2x per day) and obstructive sleep apnea (use CPAP nightly). Clearly, I am considered obese based on my height and weight referring to BMI.
I am concerned about becoming diabetic. My last physical was in July 2017 where my FBG was 91. In April 2016, I had tests for FBG and a1c. The FBG was 105 and the a1c was 5.5. I purchased the Relion prime glucose monitor from Walmart last year and do check my glucose levels at times. Frankly, I realize I may seem like a bit of a loon regarding this. I would appreciate ANY info or advice that could be passed along. Thank you.
