Have been diagnosed with Pre-diabetic. Now under diet and exercise, coming from a family history of diabetes (father). Aged 40, 100/130, had fatty liver now reversing.
I was poor on diet but was very much active(exercise). Was following my blood works every six months in my life. So fatty liver got detected around 3 years back, and A1nc was at 5.2, FBS 80 and PPBS 102..
In Sep2017(last year ) I got a flu which was really high around 101, was put on dolo and was rest for 1 week. Was really feeling tired and weakened. After that doctor ordered blood test and my readings was PPBS was 190 !!! I was shocked literally because last month FBS was at 80 and A1nc was 5.2. So we did A1nc right there at the moment and it was returning 5.2 . He said to wait for one month and asked to check.
Exactly as it was 6.4!!! and FBS was at 110!!. Why this happened suddenly in a month, is that flue caused it?? Was it a catalyst??? Doctor said insulin resistance may be started with that flue and reason is unknown!!
I mean t1 has single cause but t2 is complicated it seems. Is it due to pancreas failing or cells preventing or insulin not being effective ??? Don know too complicated .
I'm now trying to digest all that happened. But never experienced this sudden onslaught. I don't know how long will able to continue this way into a full diabetic. Now my readings are at 102 and 120. Hoping no miracle will happen to reverse the condition. May be my genetics is the culprit . One day finally a drug will come to end this dreaded diseases.
