Hello everyone I am a proffesional speaker. I have been speaking to myself about going to nursing school for the last 12 years
But that is as far as I got. I have a question I would like somebody to help me with.
One month ago I took a blood test and it came back with a Glucose level of 460. This of course from my many years of drinking 6 bottles of Mountain Dew at work and then a 2 liter when I was home everyday. Also I am overweight 6' 2" 340lbs 30 years old. Diabetes also runs in my fathers side of the family. So once I got the results of my test I stopped eating anything with sugar in it and ate Healthy choice TV dinners. I then went to the doctors and he did a test and my glucose came back 147 fasting. He then did a test that he said will test it for like a month past and that came back 280. I was given a meter by the doctor and I have tested myself a few times. The first test was when I woke up after not eating since the day prior and my results were 127, then I did it one day 2 hours after I ate and it came back 111, then yesterday I ate chicken wings that I am not suppose to due to the breading on it and I tested it 2 hours after and it came back 112.
So my question is Can it be that I am not diabetic and just over did the eating? I would drink pop/soda like there was no tommorow and eat fried foods candy ice cream pudding etc alot! Like a preson who drinks too much alcohol would have a high blood alcohol level but if the cut down or cut it out the level would lower. Thanks so much

This issue here is defining diabetes, not what YOU care about. Focus!
I'm sorry, but I refuse to accept your over generalized definitions. The issue here is not ALL ABOUT YOU. Focus!
Oh, and BTW, I can't handle your arrogance anymore, so I will no longer be reading.
To the original poster, please see your doctor, and take care.
