I went in for my routine physical a couple of weeks ago and my doctor ran a number of tests. She told me my fasting blood work showed a "slightly elevated" glucose level of 103 mg/dL but that my A1c was "ideal" and under the 5.6 threshold. She does not appear to be concerned, but should I be?
She said even though I was fasting if I had lots of sugar the day prior (I did have ice cream the evening before roughly 12.5 hours before test and to be honest I eat ice cream or cookies every other night) that it could have been a temporary residual spike of some kind. She said because my A1c is in ideal range and my margin for glucose was so slight she just wants me to keep work on getting healthier.
Background, I am 5'11" and 203 pounds, just turned 30 years old. 2 years ago I weight 238 pounds and I've been working really hard to get my weight down. One thing I am thinking is because I only eat 1,700 calories a day, but a large majority of it is fruits, juices, and like I said dessert, maybe my intake ratios of sugar are just too high?
