Over the past 6 months I have been feeling worse, in the last 2 months I've been having some extreme symptoms. I had a fasting blood test done the beggining of November and the labs came back with high triglycerides, high cholesterol, high liver enzymes. I started checking my blood sugars and they vary from 30's to 200. I went to the dr and she tried telling me it was my hormones. I had a hysterectomy when I was 28 and am now 39, I've been on hormone replacement since the hysterectomy. I have gained about 40 pounds all around my belly. The past couple of months I have more headaches, more thirst I drink around 4- 5 liters of water a day. I have to race to the bathroom even during the night. My eyes are going blurry. I notice at times during the day that I am shaking. I get really really tired after eating. The dr. did an ac1 test and it came back 5.7 but I was told that that isn't a very good test to diagnosis diabetes. I don't know, all that I do know is that I feel terrible. Does anyone have any help or suggestions for me? It would be greatly appreciated.
