In April of 2007 I had a routine physical and my fasting blood glucose reading was 99. In October of the same year, being the hypocondriac that I am, I went to an endocrynologist for a 2nd opinion. The Doc administered an A1C test and the results came back with a reading of 5.0%. Are these two numbers incompatible? I bought a home glucose monitor and check in the morning. Sometimes after waking in the morning my reading is 102, 101, etc. When I come home from the gym after work the reading is 88, 92, 96 etc. I am very in-shape, work out aerobically and with weights. My parents are in their 80's and are not diabetic nor are any of my 3 siblings (all older) nor were my grandparents diabetics. Am I just a worry wart? I just don't like the thought that my fasting number is so very close to the upper limit of the normal persons fasting glucose.
Shouldn't my fasting glucose be around 80?
