Hello everyone i have just found out that im prediabetic after having a fasting bloodtest done 5 weeks ago that came back with readings of 7.3 i was put on a low cal/carb diet and have been following this since and have lost 1 stone in 3 weeks but had another blood test done- oral glucose test at the hostpital and the doctor phoned me to tell my results are-psto 6.4 and after 2 hrs 9.3. i have to see the diabetic nurse next week and that was the end of the conversation. i dont understand what the readings mean and what to do next? bit confused to be honest. there is family history of diabetis type 2 - my dad has it-its a rare genetic diabetes that is passed on(sorry but thats all i know), so did his father and imediate family( my great aunts and uncles). what i want advice on is are my blood readings borderline ? or am i at the bottom end of the scale to being diagnosed prediabetic(basicaly is it bad?) hope someone out there can help me please. thank you for taking the time to read this. jo.
