Our expert says:
I do so wish that doctors would explain to their patients what they mean when they diagnose someone with a condition like diabetes. From what you say, it appears that you probably suffer from insulin resistance which is the first step towards developing diabetes. If you keep your weight in check (your current BMI = 27,1 which is above the normal level - you should preferably weigh 70 kg - thus 12 kg to lose!!), your blood sugar and insulin levels within the normal range by eating a low-fat, low glycaemic index (GI) diet and doing plenty of exercise each day, then you will still have insulin resistance but the chances that it will develop into full-blown diabetes is less. You will always be potentially susceptible to developing diabetes. I would recommend that you have your insulin and blood sugar levels tested again by your dr so that we can find out if you are just insulin resistant or if you have not developed type 2 diabetes. If the latter is true then you will continue with the low-fat, low-GI diet and exercise, but the dr may add medications to control your blood sugar levels.
