I'm 21 and the other day I tested my blood sugar it was 225 the lowest its been since is 171 should I be worried? I'm not a diabetic (or so I though) so I don't know hoe to deal with this. And do leg cramps have anythings to do with diabetes?

I found out I was a diabetic by checking out my moms meters. She wanted me to change the batteries. So after I changed the batteries I check-out each meter both had the same high results. Went to the Dr. A1c 7.3. Get your A1c checked. Let us know the results. Not sure about leg cramps.

Yes, it can follow you out of pregnancy. Most women get better after they deliver but some dont. I cant believe you were never tested. I was tested with both of mine just as regular protochol. I wasnt diabetic during my pregnancies. Diabetes can cause neuropathy in the legs. Usually numbness or tingling/burning feelings but anything is possible. You might be low in potassium or magnesium too. You need a good physical work up with blood work.

yes that is really high. you need to go to the dr and get them to blood work to see if you are. I suffer with leg cramps when my is high it makes me pee a lot which can cause dehydration and that can mess with your potassium levels. please don't wait to be seen. it is better to catch it early and get it under control. stay away from carbs and sweets until you find out ok. hope this helps you

Blood levels that high puts you at diabetes. Pregancy and high blood sugars can cause damage to the child and complications for you if not treated. The baby will be unusually big.
Hope you have been to the doctor and are starting to get under control. This is a serious condition and left untreated will cause many serious side effects such as nerve pain. Blindness. Loss of fingers, toes, etc. if you smoke it is even worse. Please get to better health before thinking about babies. You will have a much better pregnancy and a much better result.
In addition, you can start watching your food and eat more fruits and vegetables, far less carbohydrate, which you must be doing so cut back on white flour and sugars, increase protein. Lots of info out there. Lots of support here. Take care, Karen
