Criteria for diagnosing diabetes

I am labeled pre-diabetic.... but I have had some of the readings listed as being diabetic...

A normal reading when it was taken should have been around 100 as it was about 3 or more hours after eating... 80 to 100 is normal....

My interpretation also.

Yes, extreme levels of stress can kill.

Thanks for the details. This seems to support ER in my opinion. Most people here want 95% - 100% Firecalc results, but we crossed over the life curve with only with 80% survival? Also, one out of every seven workers will suffer a five-year or longer period of disability before age 65. Too much chance for me of "one more year" not being so great.

I knew stress could be detrimental to your health but I have never heard it may affect diabetes. Diabetes runs strong in my family and I have had no indications of a problem in my checkups (infrequent) but I live a healthier lifestyle than everyone in my family so I assumed I wouldn't need to be concerned about it. I have plenty of stress to contend with so I will keep that in mind.

Thanks for sharing this sad story.

Actually stress and diabetes have been linked through inflammatory mediators (which are not annoying lobbyists, but chemicals released in the body). Here are some research studies if you want to read about it.
