My normal blood sugar is LOW. Like 80 normally, or 50 when I'm fasting. I keep snacks at my desk so I don't fall over. Doctor's recommendation.
Glucose tolerance screening yesterday was NOT fasting, and I know my stomach doesn't like a lot of sugar, so I had sausage, egg & cheese on a whole wheat english muffin for breakfast (protein, protein, protein, carb). I figured perhaps I wouldn't vomit.
I didn't... But... My level came back at 141. ME. The OB's cutoff is 130.
So I get to do the 3-hour glucose challenge. Fasting for 12 hours first. Higher sugar amount. 4 blood draws.
I'm kind of upset. But I just read something that made me feel a little better - high levels of stress can up normal blood glucose levels. If that's the case, I'm surprised mine aren't at 500+.
On a slightly better note, my hemoglobin is slightly low - I'm anemic. Hmm, I've been anemic my whole life. I haven't been in a couple of years - since I started taking the prenatal vitamins, LOL! - so they want me to take an iron supplement. I can handle that.
