I am recently diagnosed for DM2 with HBa1c 11 and Fasting@211 and Post meal @245
I was on metformin for few days and reduced fasting to 100 and post meal to 150-160 .
and from last 15 days I am on no medicine and completely OFF . and still I am maintaining Fasting @95-110 and Post meal 120-160 ( max of 180 on two occasion)
I am planing control my Dm2 with just Life change and diet( that I am doing from last 15day ) for that I want to know what is my current condition of diabetic status .. Someone suggested me GTT so that I can come to know how my body react to glucose and what is current capacity to handle glucose , I want to use this test result as REFERENCE POINT for the future management to determine Progression of DM or reversal of Dm
I have fear that taking 75G of Glucose may take BG levesl 400's or 500's and can lead to coma, I spoke to doctor regarding taking up this test , he said its not required and refused to write test for me .. but I want to take it So I went to Lab and Booked GTT test .
Now I am feeling little worried, I feeling that I COULD go to coma and I cant handle 75 G of Glucose , My Moderate meal takes me to 180's so 75 G of Glucose would go behind 400's ...
I want to know from the people who taken this GTT and What was your numbers and is it safe to test if my fasting @125?
