    Hi guys, I been a type 2 diabetic for years now (when I was 22 and now I’m 26) and I got tested again pretty recently with a few blood tests and the glucose tolerance test. The first time I did this I was in the 100% diabetic range. This time when doing the test these were the results

    Fasting: 4.7 mg/dl
    1 hour : 11.8 mg/dl
    2 hour: 4.6 mg/dl

    The spike after one hour is huge so I’m still a little sceptical that I’m still diabetic although I’ve been exercising and dieting a lot. What do you guys think?

    The specialist said I have no sign of being diabetic anymore.

    If those figures are for the Glucose tolerance test then that ios good but do not spoil the good work done by returning to the regime you were on before diagnosis else you will completely undo all the good work you have done

    Have you quoted the wrong measurement units? Do you mean mmol/l?
    I think if they were mg/dl you would be dead by now!

    However, if they are mmol/l they are excellent and do not show any diabetes.
