(sorry.my.space.bar.is.broken)

Anyways...I.was.feeling.very.sick.after.a.minor.ca r.accident
I.think.it.was.all.anxiety.related...anyways.I.wen t.in.to.the
walkin...they.took.my.blood(I.had.just.eaten).and. heard.nothing.for.4.weeks...those.
4.weeks.were.filled.with.feeling.like.****.and.am. now.
seeing.a.psych.for.anxiety.issues

Then.out.of.the.blue...my.doc.called.saying.my.sug ar.was.high
and.that.i.was.to.have.an.OGTT.the.next.day

This.made.me.unbelievably.nervous/stressed...i.didnt.even.
sleep...my.anxiety.was.already.out.of.control.and. was.scared
of.this

so...in.my.worst.possible.shape...i.still.went.in. and.did.the.
OGTT....my.fasting.was...86.4(4.8mmol/l)...and.the.2.hour
was..144(8.0mmol/l)....which.was.slightly.high

It.turns.out.that.there.was.miscommunication...my. doc.
thought.i.was.fasting.for.that.first.blood.test... but.i.didnt...
I.had.just.ate...the.number.was.109(6.1mmol/l).which.is.normal.i.believe?

Im.seeing.my.doc.on.monday.to.discuss.everything.. .but.Im
wondering...is.it.likely.that.all.that.stress/lack.of.sleep.resulted
in.that.high.level?

thanks.and.sorry.for.the.long.story

btw.im.21.normal.weight.eat.pretty.well,etc

THanks!

Your results are almost identical to the results my husband received from his test and they told him that everything was okay. But, they did suggest that he cut back on sweets and carbs, because the results were slightly high/normal.

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES.....stress has a BIG effect on your numbers. A bad day sends my numbers soaring. We won't mention what happens if it's a bad week. UGH

Hopefully you have dodged the "Bid D", but if not, remember your not alone and diabetes is not a death sentence. This forum is a great support circle, use it if you need it. Good Luck!!!!

Thankyou.so.much....it.was.more.like.4.BAD.weeks.for.me.haha.so.i.feel.slightly.relieved.

I.just.found.it.weird.cuz.im.only.21.and.workout...but.I.really.do.have.anxiety.issues.and.it.does.
make.sense.that.my.body.was.not"normal".at.the.time.of.the.test
