Can you be diabetic with a fasting blood sugar of 75?
 
In the past my blood sugar was 160 on a fasting blood test and A1C of 9. I had the flu when I took it. Starting eating healthier(never been on meds) and 3 weeks later it was 118. Continued losing weight and and 6 months later it was 95 with A1C of 5. I have been afraid to check for a long long time but barely ate sweets and have exercised a fast pace 45 minutes 5 days a week for the last 10 years. My most recent fasting was 75(didn't have A1C ). I am a nonsmoker and drinker and still working to lose more weight. Don't really have symptoms. Don't get thirsty alot. Maybe get up once a night to pee but not always. Never really overly tired. The only thing I notice that if I do eat chocolate which is rare I feel a bit tired and temporary thirst which goes away. Sometimes I feel a drop were I feel shaky and I need orange juice bur that's rare also. Not sure what'd up.

Also on a side note. I was having all symptoms and then when I found out my bp was 75 the symptoms went away.

It looks to me like you prob'ly ARE diabetic, and are controlling it with diet and exercise. If you had an A1c of 9 sometime in the past, what was the doctor's diagnosis at that time? That A1c would have been a 90-day picture of your hemoglobin - having the flu would not factor into the A1c. That is why I think you could very well be diabetic, but what did the doctor say?

Instead of testing when fasting test when 1 hour after eating a meal with carbs in it like pasta or mashed potatoes. that will tell you how well your body handles the glucose you make from carbs.
