Hi everyone, I guess you can say that I'm a prediagnosed pre-diabetic.  My doc wants to see how I do for the next three months before officially being diagnosed.  Either way I am terrified.  I'm so scared that I don't even want to eat because I don't want my numbers to be high.  However, I don't have anyway for me to keep track.  I don't have a meter, and my doc said I don't need one yet.  Undecided confused!



 If it was me I would fire your doc,   oh save the poor diabetics fingers  but forget the damage not funny in my book.    Lets just say your blood sugar is 200 and that is a not so good reading.    Do you even know what number they dx you at,   what your readings get after you eat.   Honestly this type of thinking from docs drives me up the wall.   Why let damage happen when it does not need to,  its about getting closer to normal as possible.   Not eating only makes your liver dump glucose,   the body thinks your need energy so when the liver does this your blood sugar shoots up.   Eat proteins,  green veggies and healthy fats.    These will help keep your numbers down,   all carbs=sugar   you need to find the ones that are the lowest.    Always look at how many carb grams you are eating,     30 per meal might be a safe place to start.      So remember eat proteins,   fats and green veggies these are fairly safe.

Hi and welcome to dlife,       many of us have found ways to control our blood sugar levels.     Many type 2s find a reduction of carbs really lowers their readings.

We do understand Anne.  We all have gone through similiar circumstances and as we go the more we learn and there is a time that comes where it won't be so scary and you will feel confident with the way you handle the issue with your health team.


I always like the idea of a new friend.  I am on type 2 forum also.  There are very nice people there that would love to get to know you and that can answers questions from their own experiences and knowledge.  All of us have different personalities for sure.

Welcome to the family! We do understand...and, we also know that there is more to you than just the disease. I hope you pop into the Type 2 forum and tell us a little bit more about yourself, and get to know us better.


I can say that if you are looking for friends, this is the place. I am happy to say that I have made some great ones over the years. Several, I have gotten to know outside of the forum...One in particular I feel is like an adopted Mom to me.


Again, welcome to the dLife family!

Hi, Anne.  I'm a T2 (5 yrs now) on the +side of 60 (at least, that's what the calendar says Cry).  Pop on into the T2 forum and ask whatever Q's you have.  We try to be a helpful group.
