    Should I be concerned

    I was gestational diabetic for 2 of 3 pregnancies. I failed to be rechecked after my 3rd. I noticed I have been feeling a little off at times so I decided to check my blood sugar 2 hours after I ate and it was 166. Should I be concerned?

    Glucose levels for someone 70 years old

    My Doctor has told me I should not worry about higher sugar levels at my age. He said I should keep them above 100 at all times, so I do not fall and break a bone. This makes no sense to me, and seems rather condescending. Is there any reason why I should not try to maintain blood sugar levels in a healthy range of 90-100 after fasting, and after exercising?

  • I am worried I may have diabetes! Help?

    Hi, to begin with I am a male about 195 lbs and 6'2" so not really overweight (pretty fit in general), but I've noticed some tingling in my feet and calves, as well as a little in my hands and face. I do not know if the foot pain is because I walk about 2 miles a day during school, but it's possible. About six weeks ago I went and got bloodwork done and received the following results from a fasting bloodtest: Cholesterol: 144 HDL (High density lipoprotein): 79 Glucose: 103 HA1C:....

    muscle cramps

    Dr. I have been a diabetic type 2 for about 20 years and my most recxent A1C was 7.1. I exercise every day and my blood sugar readings for the past 3 months average out to 120. My question is--lately I have been getting muscle cramps in my legs. Are they a bi-product of diabetes? Thank you Jim Artese
