Last year I was diagnosed as prediabetic. My fasting glucose was 111, and my A1C was 5.8. By drastically changing my diet, I've gotten my fasting glucose between 89-99, which is good. But my A1C is what concerns me. Initially I got it down to 5.7, but it's now 5.9, and I'm not doing anything differently than I was before when all of this nonsense started. I am very conscientious about what I eat: I know about portion control and counting carbs, and I walk at least a mile five days a week. I don't understand why my A1C would only go down one-tenth of a percentage point after I made such drastic changes to my diet, and why it's gone up now. I'm 4ft. 10in. and used to weigh 90 lbs., which was fine for me. But since all of this started, I'm down to 80 lbs., which is NOT good! I certainly didn't need or want to lose weight, and I can't seem to gain any of it back by eating this way. All of my other blood tests are fine, but diabetes runs in my family; so I expect to get it regardless of what I do. But I want to know that I'm doing all I can to stave it off for as long as I possibly can. I've come to this forum for help and support. Thank you for reading.
