    hello everyone i am 20 years old with no history of diabetes in family but in last 3 years i have done at least 4 glucose tests 3 of them were fasting ones 1st-was 102 2st -82 and last one was 112 since i have done tolerance test and everything was ok case was that i had blood taken at 11a.m while i ate some chocolate at 2-3 a.m so my doc ordered A1c test to determine if i have prediabete i feel myself really scared since i have history of anxiety disorder and don't know what to wait

    I think you've got it covered contralto. If you do have pre-d, no better time to find out than right now, and no better place to find out what you need to do about it than right here.

    It is a good idea for everyone to eat sensibly and do some additional exercise, and lose some weight if that is necessary. Good luck for the future. :)

    If you are concerned that you have pre-diabetes, why are you eating chocolate and sweets?

    Your recent blood tests show you don't even have pre-diabetes. Plasma fasting glucose of 93 and an HbA1c of 5.1% is normal.

    Relax, stop stressing, and eat sensibly with some additional exercise (walking is great) Stress doesn't help blood sugar levels.
