Hello! Congratulations on your new Baby. :) Boy or Girl? I hope that your Little One is doing Well.

Unfortunately, even though a Person is fit and eating healthily, yes they can become a Diabetic.

Having a Family history of Diabetes is a risk factor. Having Gestational Diabetes usual turns into full-blown Diabetes within 10 years. It will happen sooner, if another Child is conceived. That happened to my Friend.

Most of your numbers and symptoms would qualify you as a Diabetic. Are you taking a medication or have another condition that would raise your blood sugar otherwise? Bruising is not a symptom of Diabetes.

You should definitely see your Dr. and report your symptoms to him/her. They will do tests to verify for sure if you have Diabetes. If so you will be diagnosed.

If you are eating properly and exercising but are still having higher numbers, then you will need a medication to help bring your numbers down and keep them more level. Many have success eating low-carb foods. YW! :)
