Hello! I'm new here and I just want to say "thank you!" I've learned so much from this website and especially the forums. I was dealing with a miscarriage last month, and on some blood work my blood sugar was found to be around 450. They called and had me return and recheck my glucose. It was around 550 and my a1c was 11%. I had been feeling poorly, tired, hungry, thirsty, and short of breath for awhile, but I assumed it was from all the changes my body was going through with being newly pregnant and then miscarrying. Before this I had lost about 20 pounds without really trying and had been feeling off for a couple months. Again, just chalked it up to changing hormones and stress. Doctor put me on metformin (full dosage) which made me feel really sick so I've stopped taking (currently don't have health insurance or a doctor as I've recently moved and I know I should have gotten cleared first but I needed to feel human again) and my numbers have been in a decent range still (my fasting has gone up a bit from 100 mg/dl to 120 mg/dl and my after eating is between 120-140). I just was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on me being younger and not extremely overweight (I could stand to lose 5-10lbs but don't really want to lose more) if I should be looking further into my diagnosis or if I should feel good about the type 2 diagnosis since my numbers have improved so quickly with my low carb diet. I've just read a lot about a lot of indicators that don't make sense with type 2- not being overweight, being semi-active, losing weight without trying before diagnosis. That being said, my grandma has type 2, along with 2 uncles. And I have a cousin who is type 1, so I know it runs in the family. Thanks for any insight or reassurances. Also- working on getting into a Functional Doctor program soon!
