When should I worry about being a diabetic?
I have been testing my my blood for the past week and my sugar levels are between 125 to 155. I test it before I eat in the morning and before I eat dinner. Should I be worried?

JustPeachy !!!
Yes, your numbers are probably too high. I heard that anything over 125 before you eat anything in the morning is Too High.

David L
yes you should. Those numbers are too high. If you are on any kind of diabetic medication, you should make sure that you eat breakfast and take your meds as prescribed.
The 125 isn't horribly high, but the 155 should concern you. You could try altering your diet to a low fat, low carb and sugar free diet and also get into a daily exercise regime. It doesn't have to be strenuous, even walking 30 minutes a day will be very good for you.
Diabetes can affect so much of your body. It can affect your heart, your kidneys, your liver. Not to mention the possibility of an early death due to complications. However, that is an extreme.
Take care of your body.. its the only one you have. Watch your diet, get some exercise, and take your meds. And keep checking your blood. Also, the next time you have blood work done, specifically an A1C test, try to keep it below 7.

Your numbers are a bit high. You should watch your carbs and see a doctor now so he can help you with a program.

Before you worry about becoming diabetic, look at your diet. Is there anything that you can change. For example, do you eat bread with yout meals? Do you eat rice or potatoes? Do you drink fruit juice. Remove those and other forms of sugar from your diet. You can get plenty of carbohydrates from meats and low carb vegetables but they will be low enough that your pancreas can work without stalling.Give your pancreas a tune-up by removing the gunk of carby junk.If this "tune-up" improves when you test, I would present this info to your doctor.

I've just been diagnosed. Doctor says that my goals should be this. In the morning before i eat it should be from 80 to 100. after i eat dinner it shouldnt be more than 135.

I wouldn't worry too much about those numbers you should have your doctor to check your blood gluclose. Also The more you worry about it the more stress you'll put on yourself.

I am diabetic and my doctor wants my numbers around 70-80. I guess you should consider cutting out carbs, and maybe go th the doc and have a hemoglobyn A1C done. It gives you a three month blood glucose average.....
