Good news from my dr. She said that .1 over the 5.5 reading was okay, just keep walking, eating veggies, and all is well. No daily metering needed at this time. Thanks for your concern and good advice... at 67.8 years, I think I'm doing okay. Yay SparkPeople!

I understand your situation.
Do you have a meter to monitor your bs everyday.
If your bs is under 99 you are doing great.
The range for non diabetics is 65-99
The most important part is to be active and watch your carb intake.
I avoid sugar at all costs, if I get a craving for something sweet I make it myself to control the sugar.
I do not keep sugar in my house, I use Splenda instead.
If you do get the big D, does not mean you will be on the needle.
I have been a diabetic for 3 years now and I'm on oral medication.
I hope to never have to be on the needle.

No whining allowed, right? what a surprise that my blood sugar was just inside the pre-D range. all the walking, the salads...and the mixed nuts and now holiday cookies. So it is my 'fault' that I'm on a slippery road. I understand that I can reverse this with the usual... walking, strength training, watching carbs, and patience. I don't like needles, so really want to avoid real D. Help cheerfully accepted, guys.
