No need to conclude that you are a diabetic based on one reading.Go for HbA1c test as suggested.Even if it is confirmed,no purpose will be served by worrying about it.Since you are already active physically,diet control may improve the situation.Keep monitoring at home,become knowledgeable about diabetes and stop getting stressed up,because that may aggravate your condition.

Hello anup Ji

As I had posted earlier,my hba1c is 6.3 after 3 months from diagnosis hba1c 7.2.i am not on medication yet.but following Dr Bernstein' s approach I am little sceptic that I may suffer damages as I already experience mild peripheral neuropathy. Should I take metformin?

Is it not true there is a big difference between the T2s & T1s ? You or someone has said about age & normally you get T1 when younger. T2 is normally in older age Champak.

Low carb does not mean starving

Only those who do it knows

Rest are just assumptions

Low carb at keto range got my Hba2c from 7.2 to 4.9

I don't starve

In fact of calories are measured this i am taking more calories than earlier at the same time my weight dropped from 69 to 59 once into LCHF

This is a diet where we have food to our satiety, very balanced as we get all the micro nutrients incl the crucial fat soluble ones which many miss out due to fear of fats.

People who complain are those who have not tried it

Those who have done it are happy
