Just got word from my doctor's office that my fasting glucose levels were elevated. Have to go back for another 12 hour fasting blood draw, then eat, then go back 2 hours later for a second blood draw to rule out diabetes. My worst fear.

My dad has Type 2 and I've always been scared of being diagnosed with diabetes.

I'm finally healthy and exercising, eating well, normal BMI, healthy weight, and now I get the call that I've been dreading.

Please God, no. I can't handle this.

    I hope it's better than you expect. Sometimes test can give you a false positive so it's a good thing they are doing more testing.

    Take deep breaths and one step at a time. You can handle this, especially since you've developed so many good habits and are healthy.

    Wishing you well. You appear to be one strong lady. You are doing what yoou need to do by looking after yourself. Try not to worry about what might be.
    I stopped by to thank you for your words of encouragement on my blog today . I see that you are a SAHM and I wanted to commend you for finding time to focus on your health. As a SAHM myself I know that we often place our own needs on a back burner. Keep up the great work.

    I hope everything turns out okay. PS while I hope you don't have to prove me right you CAN handle anything, look how far you've come.
