I had taken a routine blood test two weeks ago, as I am currently being treated for a Prolactinoma. I take blood tests every 3 months or so just to check my PRL & Testosterone levels. This last blood test, my doctor decides to take a full blood test, so it had to be a fasting blood test .
Everything seemed normal until he noticed my Glucose was up to 176. Turned out I screwed up with the fasting, since I took a protein shake the night before testing in the morning, as I had gone to the gym. So he decides to have me retake it again, thinking that the previous test was inaccurate.
So I take a new blood test this week, fully fasting for 14 hours, and my blood glucose is now at 195.
I would like to know if I'm going to be diagnosed with diabetes or if there are factors that would account for it being that high despite a fasting blood test? My mother and my aunt both are diabetics, however, I'm a little scared at the fact that I may have it, and I'm only 24yrs old.
I am in generally good health. I visit the gym regularly, do not consume junk food, I do tend to eat a little more portion wise, but I limit the sweets and occasionally drink alcohol, but not too often. I do smoke, but fairly lightly. I'm 5'9", 280lbs (but I am not round/pudgy, I'm muscular).
Would I just be in the pre-diabetic stage and not full-blown diabetes? Since the results this week, I've adjusted my diet and will see my doctor in a week-and-a-half for further testing to rule anything out, but he does have a high suspicion that I may be diabetic.
I just don't know what to do at this point, because it feels like a double-whammy, having a brain tumor and now (possibly) diabetes.
I haven't been formally diagnosed yet, but I am really concerned. So far, I haven't experienced the typical symptoms (thirst, constant urination, etc.) but the blood glucose level seems to dictate otherwise.
Any help is appreciated.
