    At the doctors yesterday I was told my blood test results showed my blood haemoglobin A1c levels were ” in the low range of what is considered pre-diabetic” but my blood glucose levels were in the normal range. Does anybody out there know a bit about diabetes that can offer some advice?

    hi johnvic in our area there is an appointed Diabetes Educator who advises patients on this subject. It may be that you have one too – your GP would advise you.
    I think we can be overloaded with hearsay – every patient is peculiar to themselves so the one whose advice we should adhere to, is our own GP.
    Best wishes 🙂

    Thanks didi. At this stage everybody is telling me I don’t have diabetes but I “need to be careful”; whatever that means. I have looked at my diet and I can see improvements I can make as far as sugar content of foods like cakes and biscuits. My concern is why my A1c levels were high in the first place. I’m booked to see the doc to fully discuss my situation and I will be asking to have a glucose tolerance test to see if there is a problem with my ability to control blood glucose levels. Just what I don’t need; another health issue.

    johnvic I am sure that you can gain diet related information from a Diabetes Educator which should be accessible via your Dr.

    YAY, glucose Tolerance test came back normal. No diabetes, not pre-diabetic.
