Is pre-diabetes a new diagnosis?
My doctor never told me that I was pre-diabetic. I discovered it when I saw a pre-diabetes class advertised at the YMCA. I checked my blood work and found that my A1c had been 6.2 for 4 years! Why would a doctor not tell his patient? Do doctors see a problem and hide it from them, or is he just a bad doctor? I left his practice because I went in to see him 4 times over a year about diarrhea, only to figure out on my own that it was due to a side affect of a medicine he gave me for GERD. I stopped the medicine and found a new doctor. It is really difficult to know what to believe when you have a doctor that you don't trust and a multitude of people trying to sell stuff to you on the internet! I hope this website is more reliable.
