Pre diabetes

I have a family history of diabetes and recently am having issues with tingling hands, feet and middle spine area. I bought a monitor last night just out of curiosity, (im 38) because Ive been trying to figure out whats going on with me. I feel like my doc does not take me seriously and therefore dont want to go to him.

I tested this morning 30 mins after a cup of coffee which had 2 teaspoons of creamer(powdered) and 1/2 packet of sweet and low.
My blood sugar was 112. Should I be fine?

Sounds like that could be a non-diabetic reading to me. You would do best to test again before eating or drinking anything and after 10-12 hours of no food and just small amounts of water. That test should give you a more accurate reading. Target numbers are a reading of 70-100 fasting and 140 or less two hours after a meal.

You are wise to keep on top of this now. Watch your diet, get regular exercise and discuss this further with your doctor.

Just want to ad that the symptoms you describe may not be related to diabetes at all, even if you are diagnosed positive. Talk to your doctor about having an MRI or CT scan of your neck and spine, and a possible referral to a spine specialist. If your current doctor will not or can not help you, then it may be time to find a new doctor. You are in charge of your body and health care, so be proactive and get the treatment you need.
