    Hi all. My mother was recently diagnosed with diabetes - type 2 (her blood sugar levels were really high). I am no hypochonder, but I like to know what's up. SO my question is this - will I develop diabetes over time too? Should I talk to my doctor about this? Should I go and examine my blood sugar levels?

    On the other hand - Is there anything I can do to prevent diabetes? Is there any food out there that can help prevent diabetes / high blood sugar levels? Does anyone have any experience with that?

    Thank you for all your replies in advance.

    I am just worried a bit, that's all.

    Never mind. I've been to doctor's office yesterday and talked to my doctor. He also suggested I get my blood sugar levels read and do the test. I am doing the test next week on Wednesday so we will see very soon.
    Are these values for blood sugar correct?
    (normal blood sugar levels)
    Adults
    A Normal blood sugar level is between 3.6 and 5.8 mM (mmol/l), 65 and 105 mg/dl for a healthy person.
    The concentration of glucose in the blood of healthy people in the morning on an empty stomach is between 68 and 108 mg/dl (3.8 to 6.0 mmol / l). Two hours after consuming foods or drinks rich in carbohydrates, the values are usually between 120 and 140 mg/dl (6.7 to 7.8 mmol / l).

    Good afternoon. Thank you for posting. The link you posted looks accurate. There has been a lot of discussion over the past several years but the last I've heard these are in the proper range.

    I am glad that you are getting tested. Keep us posted on the outcome.

    Hi Julaa wave.gif

    You can have a genetic predisposition for diabetes type 2, but most recent research shows definitely that even then it mostly depends on your life style if you develop diabetes or not.
    Risk factors for diabetes type 2 are:
    high sugar, white flour and fast food consumption
    overweight
    not exercising
    not getting enough vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids

    So even if your tests come back normal, maybe have a look at your eating and exercising habits and your weight.
    If you have any more questions, you're always welcome here icon_biggrin.gif

    Thanks everyone for commenting.
    I've done the blood sugar test last week and my results were in normal range - thank God. There was no spike in my blood sugar levels. The doctor said that I should measure my blood sugar once per year from now on just to be sure and act early if some changes would appear. He also told me that it is not neccessary that I will develop diabetes although my mother is diabetic now (her blood sugar levels are quite high).

    I will definitely look at my diet and change it a bit. But it won't be that hard because the more I learn about healthy living the more I want to live healthy icon_smile.gif
