    Is that all diabetes is is popping a 6.5 on this test?
    NO! Once your diabetic that's it. You can control it. In fact if you have it controlled you can go on forever without ever being diagnosed as a diabetic. Its only found out when it out of control.

    [QUOTE=TheGR8TESTOAT;20398275]WTF? So I just got the results of my blood tests and I'm pre-diabetic!!!???

    I thought you had to be a fatty to be pre-diabetic. I've been slacking on my work outs and cardio for sure but never knew I'd be PD!

    I guess the Hemoglobin A1C was 6.1 for me.

    5.7 to 6.4 is Prediabetes

    over 6.4 is Diabetes!

    WTF???

    So doctors saying I gotta lose weight, each more plant based meals, more fish.

    Anybody else in a similar boat? Or any tips? Suggestions?

    I saw if you eat avocado, garlic, kiwi, lemon,p

    I tell you this.

    Get back on your workout. (LIFT HEAVY, lifting heavy burns more calories and stay burning more calories than cardio does.)

    Breakfast - 1 cup Steel-cut Oatmeal, cinnamon, and a banana (barely past green).
    Lunch - Ground Beef mixed with vegetables to your liking, white rice.*
    WORKOUT BURN OFF THAT CARBS and shit
    Dinner - Chicken breast with avocados slices and a cruciferous vegetables i.e broccoli, Brussels Sprouts etc.* with a protien drink (dinner should be very very low carbs you dont need any to sleep)

    *Now portion this out to fit your calories goals for weight loss, calculate that here - https://www.freedieting.com/calorie-calculator

    Things to remember, 3500 calories = 1 pound. So calculate your maintenance right now (the calorie intake it takes for you to neither lose or gain weight) and then subtract X amount of calories a day for you goal of weekly weight lost you wish to achieve. For example a 500 calorie deficit a day will yield you 1lb weight loss (500 calories x 7 days = 3500 calories = 1lb weight loss).

    Also only drink water, buy yourself protein shake to have with dinner after your workouts (Optimally your workout should be after your lunch) best protein imo is https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QQA0H3S/ it doenst have all those fake sweeters surclose, aparteme (which can trigger your diebetis) so get this one and drink that.

    and stay on this till you reach your target weight goal and are clearly out of the prediabetic range.

    Also if you want to kick it into overdrive and get the benefits of intermittent fasten, consume all your foods within a 8 hour period. 10am to 6pm for an example. ALSO IMPORTANT: Only drink water outside of this 8 hour window to gain all the benefits of intermittent fasting, any calories intake will defeat the fasten.

    GOOD LUCK! and be DISCIPLINED! you don't want to be taking pills everyday and sticking yourself with insulin everyday TWICE A DAY!

    Also get a monitor and see when and where u r high as the a1 is just an average it doesn't necessarily mean you're getting dangerous high levels, but testing regularly for a few weeks will give u an idea of what sets it off and at what times, everybody is different.

    also don't be afraid to take metformin if your DR says to, its one of the safest, cheapest drugs going around and research is showing it has all kinds of benefits from weight loss to reduced risk of heart disease and cancer.
    word about metphorin

    it should be given to all americans. Diabetic or Not.

    Sorry bro. But your diabetic. The pre diabetis crap is bs. Your A1c is higher then normal (4.7-4.8) which means your pancreas is compromised. YOu have already destroyed a good portion of it. To save the rest stop eating carbs. ALL Carbs. Your life depends on it.

    BTW carbs for diabetic and non diabetics are disasterous to the human body.

    Unfortunatley we only care once we are told we are diabetic.

    Look up and read Dr. Bernstien "the diabetes solution"

    and Tubes "the case against sugar"

    your head will explode.

    I've eaten unhealthily my whole adult life pretty much, from micro burgers to endless takeaways. I should be a fat ass but I tend to limit myself to one meal a day actually, just to curb intake of calories. It's varied throughout my adult life but i've usually had some form of exercise going on, usually running. (which I hate but I love food so, what to do )

    Why were you initially tested? Did you have symptoms or were you just having a routine check up?

    I wish you all the luck buddy, try to stay disciplined with the food but don't forget to live too!
    Yeah I think Im just eat salads and Asian food, Japanese food in particular, with fish as the primary focus from now on. All my Asian friends seem to be more healthy and their parents live longer than any of my other friends parents too.

    The reason why I got the check up was cuz my lady and my moms have been harassing me to get checked up ever since my mid 30's.

    I did put on weight like about 20lbs more but this was mostly due to my work always sending me out and im in hotels and planes 6 months of the year.

    Every new year I promised my mom and lady id go get checked up and finally said in 2020 I will no matter what lol. I pushed it and prolonged it as long as I could and finally went in 2020.

    But yeah last year one of my co-workers died and she was only 38! Few of my friends caught the gout.

    I definitely put on weight I used to look like Roy Jones now I be looking more like Mike Tyson these days.

    YEah I told my lady lets eat ton of salmon and fish. Ive been taking those omega fish oil vitamins daily. Damn I should start eating more peanuts, I barely eat eggs too cause I don't got time to make them in the morning. Is it any type of eggs? Like hardboiled? Scrambled?

    Good thing my lactose intolerant arse never drinks milk.
    Yes eggs any style is good, personally i feel more full up on boiled eggs.

    Someone in this thread mentioned alcohol, thats carbs,half that intake if possible, or whiskey neat.

    Someone also mentioned intermittent fasting (Furn i think), thats very effective, to put v simple intermittent fasting and low/no carb will actually completely revwrse type 2 diabetes (been proven, multiple sources).

    No carb is a bit hard, so just half what youd normally have, up your fibre intake (lots of nuts/seeds).

    I wish you good health moving forwards!
    Thank you for the greens.

    Edit: i take 5000mg omega3 a day for a while, the dha and epa in it really really helps with my sleep quality, skin is nicer too. Its cos omega3 is precursory to melatonin being mafe in the brain, an important hormone that most of us are runninf low on....
