Hello all

I have been following threads on this site for some time, and thought I'd finally post my situation.

I am 44 years old, 5'6 and 118lbs. Not overweight and in good health, not diabetic. I am not a stress head over this as I have always done my utmost to be healthy. However...I had a fasting blood sugar at 6.2 which surprised me as I eat low carb and have done for many years. I purchased a glucose meter to measure at home. My numbers appear to be stable ranging from 4.2 to 5.5 throughout the day but my fasting glucose is always highest averaging around 6.0 ;-/. Is this the start of diabetes I wonder?

Generally through out life I have had low BP and low BS so I feel gutted to almost have Dawn syndrome readings.

Anyhow, nice to meet you all and thank you for such a fab group of supportive folk.
