It makes her look pregnant, it's so large. She has been having pain and a lot of hertburn and general malaise.

    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?

    Diagnosis so Quick

    I had a routine blood test that I thought was just for platelet count. Instead it turned out to also include a random blood glucose test. Unfortunately I didn't know that and had a 3 piece KFC meal, fruit punch and honey biscuits on the run literally just before drawing blood. My test showed a 219 glucose. My doctor was quick to say I now have diabetes and need medication. A few days later I re-ran the test, fasted for several hours and got a 101 result. I also took the A1C test and it was 5....
