I am not massively overweight. I have lost a stone and need to lose another half stone which is proving difficult. I eat healthily and am very active. I am 62.
A recent blood test showed my Hba1c (measurement of how much sugar has stuck to red blood cells over the last 3 months or so) was 42, thereby at the bottom end of the pre-diabetic range. I have been referred to a Diabetes Prevention Programme.
What I do not understand is that my fasting glucose is actually quite good - at 4.7 - which makes sense as i eat a pretty low sugar/carb diet. Does anyone know why there would be such a discrepancy? I also have an underactive thyroid which makes weight loss that much harder despite being on levothyroxine
Would welcome any ides/ suggestions.
