Having a sister and brother with type 2 diabetes, I went for a regular check up three weeks ago and was diagnosed with diabetes. My doctor told me the A1C test shows I had blood sugar levels of over 200 the past 3 months. Only one blood test was done. Since then, I have been checking my blood sugar three times a day and getting results that do not conform to what I have read about the disease. Here are the average results of the blood sugar tests for the past 3 weeks: Fasting Blood Sugar before breakfast is averaging 105, Prandial Blood Sugar averages 159, Random tests average 134. Everything I have read says these are normal sugar levels. These tests are with a low carb diet and 30 minutes of cardio exercise 5 days a week. I would like to hear some input as to whether I need to get a second opinion/test before I start medications. I am a 53 year old male in Dallas, Texas, USA. Thanks.
