You have a large Insulin response to eating, which drops your sugar back toward normal and causes symptoms. It won't however, ever drop your sugar below normal or be dangerous. The fix is losing weight to eliminate the need for your body to make large amounts of Insulin or drop your sugar quickly. ...Read more

Realize that: Many things can cause symptoms of diabetes. Not sure exactly which symptoms you are referring, but the most classic are polyuria (urinating too much), nocturia (urinating in the middle of the night) and polydipsia (drinking too much water). Ideally you would have either a hemoglobin A1C, or "fasting" plasma glucose, or an oral glucose tolerance test (less commonly done now). ...Read more

Can fasting glucose reading be greater than pp in non diabetic person Two readings 108/84 99/94 First is fasting reading Hb1ac - 5.3?
Liver glucose output: The liver manufactures glucose. Many things regulate it, but the reason most people have elevated fasting glucoses is because the liver may become resistant to insulin. Normal Insulin production/sensitivity helps to keep liver glucose output normal. When the liver becomes resistant to the effects of insulin, it will not be able to keep glucose production down to normal. This ⬆risk for diabetes. ...Read more
