Fasting Glucose of 156 - Diabetic or Pre-diabetic? PLS HELP !!!!! Hey everyone! I need URGENT help as am in a state of panic. I am living in US and my mom, 57 year old, is in India by herself. She recently got her lab tests, here are the results: 1. Glucose Fasting = 156 2. Total Cholestrol = 210, HDL = 48, LDL = 130.4, Triglycerides = 158 3. SGOT = 50, SGPT = 46, GGTP = 89, Alkaline Phosphatase = 195, Urea = 15 I am in panic because I am finding conflicting information on line. My mom has had very stressful 3 years and that has imapcted her unhealthy eating habits - eating out, fattening food, sweets, etc. I am hoping to find answers if she is diabetic or not. I hope it is pre-diabetic and can be reversed with proper diet and exercise. The doctor she went to right now has said that she is diabetic but I am finding information online that she could be pre-diabetic and can be controlled. Please advise ASAP!! Would appreciate it very much! God Bless!

I am 18 and I just found out I have prediabetes . I m kind of freaking out and don t know what to do. I didn t think I was overweight but I ve been exercising every day intensively for my whole life. I ve been trying really hard to lose weight and I did well up to a few years ago when I got depressed because my grandma died and a bunch of other stuff happened. I want to get back on track and I also just want to know how much weight I should lose to lower my risk of diabetes and even if I do lose it, how likely it will be that I won t develop diabetes.

Often lately, I've been rather light-headed and drained of energy after eating lunch (when I mostly notice it) right about 1 - 2 hours after eating. I'm currently overweight and concerned about blood sugar levels, and diabetes but, that all checked out okay on my last fasting lab 3 months ago. What could be the cause??

I am 50 years old and about to be taken off of my birth control pill that Iv'e been taking for desmynorhea. I am also type 1 diabetic and have managed it well. It works well with the ortha Novum 1/1/1 28 day birth control pill. My doctor wants to take me off because I'm 50. I do not want to because it works so well and has for many years. If I'm taken off I know my hormone levels will crash and my diabetes management will suffer. (Doctors tell me they are not related but I know They are related because I've lived it and learned to make the adjustments during my cycle for 35 years). If I'm taken off the BC pill, what is my best option to treat desmynorrhea and to keep the hormone levels at a healthy and balanced level at my age?

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
