Pre diabetic NOT overweight and v active

Hi, I have looked for this but not found anything....My fasting blood glucose measures at pre diabetic levels most mornings (between 5.6 and 7.1) but not every morning - lowest it has measured is 4.9. I own a CrossFit gym, I train between 3 and 6 times a week, CrossFit workouts. I eat pretty well although over the last year or so I have slipped a bit and don't deny myself the odd cake, pastry or bar of chocolate. I don't drink alcohol ever. I am 5'5'' and weight 60kg. You can see my abs - I'm not boasting hahaha just pointing out that my body fat is low enough to see them. I have a doctor's apt for next week but just wondered if this was perhaps a common thing with CrossFitters.....My doc does NOT understand anything about CrossFit, indeed he is hugely overweight. Last time I went to see him saying everything I ate made me feel exhausted and dizzy, he told me to eat a I'm not holding out much hope for an explanation that fits.

Re: Pre diabetic NOT overweight and v active

I hope this doctor is a diabetic specialist because it it so important to get a proper diagnosis.

Your morning levels sound normal to me and will vary due to many factors, what you ate the day before, how much you ate, how much fat you ate (pizza effect) as fat capsulates sugar and delays it getting into your blood stream, how you work out and so much more..... if you need to **** often, feel tired and so on.

Diabetes is not based just on your morning sugar glucose levels, there is so much more involved.

I know this because my oldest son who is 20 developed diabetes type 1 just over a year ago and we have learned an awful lot very fast through doctors and dieticians.
Better than today, stronger than tomorrow.
