Abnormal blood sugars may just represent a visible part of a complicated genetic disease."That is so true.My gynecologist suspected diabetes due to the sudden frequency of yeast and urinary tract infections. I had never tested high for blood sugar on a test.My A1C turned out to be 6.3, but I was already having secondary symptoms. I retain a large amount of water too (my endocrinologist guessed I was retaining about 15#).I have been recently diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, which of course, is also linked with diabetes...With diet and meds, I got my A1C down to 5.8. We are still working on improving my situation. But this disease is very complex and, I believe, tied more to genetics than diet.
