Pre diabetic type 2

Raisemeup profile image

I had some blood tests done (none fasting), and it seems I'm pre diabetic with levels at 41. I'm not only a runner, but do 3 hours a week over 2 other exercise classes, eat healthily, not over weight at all, drink a glass of wine 5 times a week, so I admit to being a little taken aback.

If anyone any experience of this or information, it will be gratefully received.

No personal experience, but have read some good articles in The Guardian about diabetes. You're not lone as I remember reading one written by or about a healthy runner who developed type ii.The Sugar Myth (Guardian long read) is interesting, & there's lots of free information available on Michael Mosley, Chris Kresser, & Mark Hyman's websites re controlling diabetes that might be of help.

Thanks so muchBadHare. I have indeed been reading what Doc Mosley says which is of interest. I’ve also made an appointment to speak with the practice nurse in the New Year as I felt a bit abandoned by the Doctor just telling me to have a repeat test in 6 months with no guidance for the interim.Thanks again and best wishes.
