Good morning, Jenisis. When had you last eaten when you got the 92 reading? Was it the first thing in the morning before eating anything or later in the day? Yes, a 92 is not bad at all! You may or may not have a problem with high blood sugar - but again the doctor would have to order the other blood sugar tests (including the glucose tolerance test). Since diabetes is on one side of your family, you're really wise to follow up on this now in order to control it and possibly avoid complications and/or full-blown diabetes later. So many people are unaware of what their blood sugar levels are. Personally, I think doctors should be more pro-active with patients whose families have diabetes. Those patients would be high risk and should be followed very closely and tested early on and take steps to keep their blood sugar under control: keeping weight down, reasonable lower carb diet and regular exercise. You might be dehydrated and you're right to drink more water. If you are drinking a lot of coffee, then maybe cutting down would help. (And they say that water does help the skin to look better and less dry...) In any case, congratulations for not putting your head in the sand and taking charge of your health. You're so young! 32! Is this your birthday today? Wow! I'm 58. I could be your mom, so do what I say! And have a great weekend!
