Hello guys!

I was tested for diabetes a few weeks ago and my doctor said i don't have it. 

Blood sugar 1 hour after meal was 97 mg/dl (i should be tested 2 hours after meal but i was in a hurry and i went there earlier).

Hba1c was 5.5% (also tested 1 hour after meal)

Fasting blood glucose test was 118 mg/dl.

My doctor said that she is 100% sure i'm fine because my test showed that and no one in my family (parents, grandparents, cousins) have diabetes.

The past days, everytime i start to eat i become dizzy for some moments (just after the first or second bite) I'm thristy all the time and that's normal for me but lately i get thristy during night and it's so strong. Frequent urination and being tired also has been part of my life since forever. Sometimes my vision get blurred but only for a few seconds.

What do you think? How possible is to develop diabetes later? What other disease has this symptoms?

    If doctor says she is sure you do not have diabetes and it is not in the family I would not worry to be honest.

    Yes it is possible to develop diabetes later in life. I am 66 and was diagnosed 2 years ago, but not sure how long I had actually had diabetes.

    You could go back to doctor explain your symptoms to her and ask her what she thinks it is if it is not diabetes.

    I think in a lot of cases if they cannot actually find a cause or diagnosis they put it down to irritable bowel syndrome.

    Hope you get some answers.

    Take care and keep in touch

    I am interesting in knowing if you found anything out.  I am going through the same thing.  Dizziness soon after eating, blurry vision that eventually goes away and my A1C is normal.  Doctors are telling me I have anxiety.

      My fasting glucose is 97 and a1bc is 5.6. I have dizziness and blurry vision and Tingling feet. All look like diabetic symptoms. But i have a non working gallbladder and now they found stones. I also have gastritis. Did you check if your gall bladder working  or for gastritis ?

    Do you have dry skin and thinning hair?

    The symptoms for diabetes and thyroid disease overlap. Any chance it’s a thyroid problem?
