This is a first for me. Hello everyone. Following a blood test taken during a pre-op assessment last month and one four weeks later [ie just now] my doctor says that my Hb1c? result is 47. So I am right on the border of T2 diabetes and shocked. What is extremely frustrating/shocking is that my BMI is 20. I hardly drink. I am fit from regular running, weight training and climbing over a long period of time. Resting heartbeat of 50. Sensible diet - I thought. Age 65. Male I have never been on medication [and not needed it] all of my life and now my Dr is suggesting I take Metformin to attempt to reverse the problem. I am so reluctant to do that if there is any way I can better manage my own health... I realise that we humans can all react differently to the same advised actions but I'd be so grateful for any advice out there at this stage. Thanks for listening.
