My Aunt Georgia was just told the other day that she was diabetic...her blood sugar levels were 108 and 80 (fasting).  I'm a bit confused....She does eat a lot of candy, and she has other medical problems...thyroid nodules among others.  But, could she really be a diabetic?  He didn't put her on meds for it and I don't know what her A1c was....I will find out.

Sound a little low to me. Maybe Hypoglyciema?
