Dr is puzzled

I posted a few days ago about not having a fasting blood glucose test. I had one done this morning and waited for the results. The test showed a 90. The dr and I were both pretty well convinced that I had diabetes. I'm 41, overweight, have had 4 babies all over 9 lbs, a history of diabetes in my family, I am constantly thirsty and have a rash that will not heal on my lower legs. I also have paresthesias in my upperback. Toss in extreme tiredness and malaise and there you have it.

The dr said he was surprised and had no idea what was causing everything. I think if it wasn't for the rash he would think I was making it all up.

Could the tests be wrong (they did a A1C a couple of weeks ago which was 5.3)? Any ideas of what else it could be?

Thanks!
