I recently went to my doctor and she wanted some blood work done anyway i did that and the results were online and seem normal but my blood glucose level is at 120 its supposed to be in between 60 and 99.. Also ive gained weight and i was curious so yesterday i looked up why i cant seem to get full and it said that it could be related to diabetes. Is this diabetes or something else
Would recommend that you get your sugar levels analyzed, fasting & PP so that the clinical data would ascertain your concerns of having diabetes.
However, high blood glucose levels, uncontrollable hunger, weight gain, thirst are some of the signs of diabetes. It is better to be sure, please do consult a doc & have your blood sugar analyzed.
Take care, bets wishes!
Before I knew I had diabetes I lost 25 pcs. I was very thirsty and urinated frequently. Why not get retested and make sure you fast for at least 8 hours before you give blood. That way you'll know for sure. I hope this helps you.
Dear Passionfruit3 (love the name): definitely take everyone's advice and get tested by your Dr.. Given your symptoms, don't you want to know... I pray you are NOT diabetic but if you are- their is so much support on this site I'm learning and so many out there to support you in every way you need! Good Luck Sweet!
What about your A1C level? Sometimes the blood glucose level is not a 100% guarantee to determine if you have diabetes. A1C level of 5.7 to 6.4 is pre-diabetic, >6.5 signals a T2D.
