Hi, I've been told that I don't have diabetes or even pre-diabetes, but I'm still worried.
At my annual physical in in January, my fasting blood glocose came back as 6.1 (113). I was going through a very stressful time and having panic attacks and general anxiety (peri-meno??). I'm 47 and don't fit the type 2 profile...weigh 120, blood pressure 90/60, excellent cholestorol levels). My doctor thought the elevated blood sugar was from my anxiety and so sent me for another test 2 months later.
The next test came back with fasting 5.7 (102...which in Canada is not considered pre-diabetic) and a 2hr OGTT of 118. The doctor called me and told me I was normal. This was a great relief to me, but I still have this nagging feeling about it.
I was reading about LADA and was wondering if that could be where I'm headed, since I don't fit the type 2 profile. Is there a period before you're Dx'd with this type of diabetes where your glucose levels are elevated, but not considered diabetes? Would my levels have gone down like that if I were heading towards LADA? Could stress have caused a temporary elevation? I would like to hear what your opinions on my situation are. I'm not sure if my Dr. is planning on sending me for more tests when I go for my next physical...I think it would be a good idea. Thanks so much
