Hi all, First time i have posted, so forgive me if i am in the wrong place, Had fasting test few weeks ago and that came back at 6.8, they sent me back for GTT which after glucose came back at 8.7? The doc said i am borderline diabetic and should now start to follow a diet which allows no sugar etc, After reading numourous posts on here i see many people with so much higher readings, could someone enlighten me what a avarage joes reading would be. The nurse said they are clamping down now with readings and anything over 5 will now be classed as diabetic? I am embarrsingly overweight and am currently on treatment for high blood preasure. Very confussed, and also quite worried as think it will be massive struggle re diet etc.
