I don’t think I ever posted my actual GTT results….
So come with me as I jog down memory lane…
My A1C is my big saving grace right now! It’s back down to a 5.2 (I believe it was up to a 5.6 in December? I can’t remember off hand).
My GTT was borderline:
Fasting 104 (100 or less)
1 hour 203 ( 200 or less)
2 hour 160 (140 or less, 140-160 = impaired glucose tolerance)
So I’m labeled as ‘impaired fasting/glucose tolerance’. Not diabetic. No monitoring my BS, no special diet, nothing! I’m officially done with diabetes… For now!
I feel like I dodged a big bullet here… She said because my numbers on the GTT got better from last time, and that my A1C is well within their normal limits (4.2-5.6) that they can’t techinically diagnose me as diabetic.
So I just have to go annually to get my BMP done (basic metabolic panel – thyroid, A1C, RBC, WBC, etc….) with my regular dr, and that I only need to see her again if I get pregnant.
Reading that makes me motivated to keep going…
Sometimes you just need to be reminded of what could’ve been to keep you going.
