I am new to this forum and wanted to see if anyone can advise on my high morning glucose. I am a 49 year old female with autoimmune thyroid disease but I am not diabetic nor or any medication for anything. My morning glucose after one cup of tea is frequently over 8.5 mmol on our very reliable Accucheck monitor. It is always higher than my husband's and he is Type 2 diabetic (unmedicated)! I also have the following symptoms (weight loss, mild headaches, upper tummy pain and nausea a lot of the time, very frequent urination ((up to 20 times a day)) and dry mouth and thirst.). My glucose in the evenings is lower (around 6.5 several hours after supper) so I know I am not diabetic. I had an HbA1c test last year and it was only 35 but then my fasting readings were lower. I feel a mixture of hyper and exhaustion which could be thyroid related. I also have positive ANA (antinuclear antibodies). A couple of cousins have Type 2 diabetes but they were overweight. I am officially underweight and lose weight very quickly! I really have not felt that well recently and am also experiencing some mild tingling in my hands.
Is there any explanation for this or should I go back to my GP?
Thank you so much in advance for any suggestions!
