Question: recently I have been feeling somewhat off, have been expierencing vertigo quite a bit, my breathing is a bit faster, light headed ect.
my vitals were done today, bp 130/85 normally I'm 110/80
my glucose was 6.0 which was taken at 2pm ( I had iso whey protein with water at 8am, and quinoa with tomato, peas and black rice at 10am) I'm concerned about my glucose as it seems high considering what I had eaten.

Glucose was taken 4 hours after eating

Can't recall the exact results of prior glucose test Dr stated I was borderline and wanted to re test concerned the results weren't quite right

Is a 6.0 something to be concerned about? Considering I hadn't consumed any sugar, is pre diabeties a possibility?

Brief Answer:
need to check the fasting and postprandial glucose:

Detailed Answer:
Hello again.
Thanks for the details,

As the blood sugar has been borderline before one month and you are overweight, i would suggest to check the following in laboratory:

-Fasting blood glucose
-OGTT
-HbA1c level

Type 1 Diabetes is rarely inherited, don't worry.

A value checked with glucometer, incidentally 4 hours after eating, is not very reliable.

Please attach the above results for further suggestions, l'll be glad to assist you.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta
