    I have impaired glucose tolerance (high levels after eating, not high enough to be called diabetes) and after testing my husband a couple of times at home I sent him to the Dr to get tested officially as I think he has it too. But she is sending him for a fasting test only. I am worried this...

    Hi, I'm 21 and have always had blood sugar problems. Mostly hypoglycemia due to having undiagnosed celiac disease. Recently there has been concerns that I might have diabetes. I've been keeping track of my blood sugar at home. Here is where the problem starts. I am on a low carb gluten free...
