Hello all,
I'm new to the forums. Just got told a couple weeks ago that I'm prediabetic. Got diabetes on both sides of my family. The endo I saw said I had to lose 20lbs in 3 months and follow a diabetic diet. Having quite a bit of trouble understanding what I can and can't have or how much. I am a volunteer firefighter and nationally registered EMT-Basic. I love what I do but right now do to my health I've had to take a medical leave basically. My numbers don't really run high I have more of a problem with hypo but the endo said if I'm having symptoms when I drop below 80 that I was pre diabetic. I can't tolerate sugar. Makes me feel horrible and then drops my sugar. On top of that dealing with a lot of weakness etc from low bp. Been told I have neurocardiogenic syncope. So really wanting to get these issues under control along with the panic attacks and get back to my life and hoping to get some knowledge and support here to do so. Thanks.
