Hi there and welcome to the Diabetes Forum! I'm glad you're proactive about
your health but please don't be too concerned about
your blood sugar at this point because it seems to be stable even if it's risen a bit.
People who start off with hypoglycemia sometimes do end up with diabetes later on in life but most can be successful controlling their blood sugar with diet and exercise. Understanding how blood sugar works is important so please read the stickies at the top of this forum and also the link in my signature - that link is to a site which has really complete information about
blood sugar and there is a search box so you can look for specific facts, too.
Know that our bodies sometimes work in ways that we don't understand and people like you who deal with hypoglycemia just need to eat more frequently and not overload on carbs at meals. Carbs make our blood sugar spike high and then crash, so avoiding meals with a lot of pasta, rice, potatoes and bread will help with that. Over the years your blood sugar may rise on average as you're seeing with the fasting so you'll have to adjust what you're eating.
Illness, pain and stress (and anxiety) all can cause blood sugar to rise (like our blood pressure) so in general this is why it's important to be aware of what our blood sugar is. Anxiety is hard to deal with and I hope you have found some good coping skills.
The A1c will tell you what your average blood sugar has been for about
90 days but it will not tell you what the highs or what the lows were. Testing before and two hours after eating will give you much more information about
what food your body reacts to, so keeping a journal with that info is helpful for you and your doctor.
Sorry you are dealing with this but I think you'll do ok knowing how to handle food and all. What do you normally eat?
