If my ac1 is 5.4 and dr says not diabetic, why do I regularly wake up with sugar at 115-120 and not feel well, like shaky? It was 132 yesterday a.M.!

If my ac1 is 5.4 and dr says not diabetic, why do I regularly wake up with sugar at 115-120 and not feel well, like shaky? It was 132 yesterday a.M.!

Many reasons: A1c could be falsely low if you're anemic or have a blood disorder. Your fasting sugar could be wrong if your meter is old or not registering right.

This is another way to diagnose diabetes. ...Read more

Also expect the pain to move to the other side at some point. Laying down on the left side with good hydration is always a good practice in pregnancy to improve blood flow to the uterus. ...Read more
