I have a possible new diagnosis of pre-diabetes.... A1c test came back 5.8... My concerns center around post meal higher then normal blood sugar readings ranging from 130-190. They are however back to normal usually within 3-4 hours. They only spike at the higher end if I have a high carb meal.. My fasting blood sugars have all been in the normal range for non-diabetics70-90... My post meal spikes make me feel shaky and sweaty and dizzy. I ve also lost some weight..down to 100 from my normal of 108-110. So I need to gain weight and keep my post meal sugars in range... I ve been very careful with my diet trying to limit carbs but I think i m being too careful and this is affecting my weight.. I will be going to a nutritionist next month but in the meantime what would you suggest.. I was thinking about trying a protein drink.. I know I will need to be careful about the amt of sugar in the drink...My appetite isn t the greatest... I don t eat much meat/no red meat only chicken, fish and turkey.... I really try to eat well.. plenty of fruits and veggies.... I have a family history of type two diabetes . My mother had diabetes by her late 40 s around 50.. I m in my mid 60 s..I Also try to stay as active as possible walking is my fav but due to an increase in fatique i m not walking much and I m not sleeping well either as I worry aabout being pre-diabetic... Thank you for taking time to read this and offer some advice....

hello, for many reasons I decided to go on a diet (lost 15 lbs) and stopped drinking soda as well. But recently stopped dieting this December due to holiday food and drank some soda but fortunately haven t gained back the 15lbs. Though lately I have felt tingling on two toes again and I think I am getting a UTI (another reason of fear of prediabetes symptoms)? Is this the side affects of coke or being prediabetic?
