My father is type 2 and I am from an Asian background hence the concern however I am not overweight and generally have always been fairly well.
I just did this today for lunch. Started at 6.1 (that was the breakfast of a small portion of oats, after 2 hours which I felt was a little high).
For lunch I had a chicken kiev (garlic/herb), some sweetcorn, peas, cucumber, wholegrain pasta and then a small chocolate after (6g carbs).
So after all this was consumed at 12:10, I tested every half an hour from then -
12:45 - 7.8
13:20 - 7.1
13:50 - 6.2
14:20 - 5.7
I feel that those are fairly non-diabetic numbers, which then I'm guessing means that my Hbac1 test will also be in the normal range?? Therefore, this extra urine I feel I'm producing cannot be from high blood sugar if my numbers are within the normal range.
I mentioned prostate issues to my doctor but he felt that at my age it would be very unlikely that's prostate related plus I'm not having the obvious symptoms of pain, burning, straining etc when peeing.
The only other factor is that I started on Mirtazapine 15mg around mid October and initially I only had some drowsiness in the morning as a side effect. A few weeks later I had some strange dreams/nightmares along with some hallucinations, mainly hearing things that weren't there but they both eased off.
Around 6 weeks ago I then developed this strange sensation in my lower tummy area occasionally making me want to go pee (which I did at times) but I would wake up every night around 3-5am. This is still happening on and off. So I don't know if it's connected to the Mirt or not. Then about a month ago I started developing bouts of frequent urination, like I would end up peeing maybe twice within 1-2 hours which is unusual for me to do so. During these bouts I notice I AM FEEL VERY ON EDGE, like anxious, probably because I'm worried about what this could be.
I usually go around 2-3 times a day on a normal urination day! So anyway still having these symptoms and I figured if it is related to the mirtazapine then I should stop it.
I went up to 30mg for a few days at one point but then went back down to 15mg. Took 15mg once a day for about the last two weeks and decided to stop it altogether 3 days ago. So I don't know if I'm what experiencing now (the middle of night waking with mild sensation of wanting to pee) is related to the drug or not. I've had urianalysis done 4 times, all normal and doctors are not sure what else they can do.
I don't know the feeling I have is this slight uncomfortable feeling in my stomach, possibly anxiety related or something else but it's never been painful or really severe at all.
