I have a history of diabetes in my family. All 4 of my grandparents had it. 2 of them died from complications from it. I had gestational diabetes with my pregnancies. For the past 6 months or so I have been taking my sugars at home with a properly functioning and coded meter. I have 4 meters and I alternate just to make sure they are all working right. I had an A1C test last week and it came back normal saying I do not have diabetes. I am very happy about that but my fasting blood glucose in the morning is usually around 150mg/dL. That seems a bit high to me. Is it ok for my sugars to be that high in the morning? I honestly haven't been testing after my meals regularly enough to mention those numbers. The fasting number worries me though. I am happy they said I do not have diabetes but I am scared they could be wrong and the high sugars could cause complications later on.
