    My doctor gave me a no sugar diet shake.
    She wants me to bring my sugar down.
    She wants me to lose 20 lbs.
    I haven't had a blood glucose tolerance test yet.
    I've been testing with bs monitor.
    The average has gone down from 158, to 132 2 hrs after a meal.
    A meal is usually protein like 2 eggs, milk with coffee, 1/4 orange
    or 2 of these no sugar dietshakes, mostly protein, about 100 calories each.
    I'm walking at work about 1/2 mile a day.
    Will this get my insulin working - get insulin into the cells - from insulin resistance??
    Am I pre-diabetic? I'm 62 years old.

    I don't really know.

    I'm in my 60s too. Everyone I know who is our age is either diabetic or pre-diabetic.

    You sound like you're in pretty good shape if you can walk. Good luck

    This would have been a good question to ask when you posted on the diabetes board here. How about posting this on that board also and see what responses you get.

    pre diabete's is over 100 but my doctor said that they don't say diabetic until you reach 170-190 with the fasting test. Diabetes is in my family but I'm only at 100 . Age shouldn't matter much but the old people get the more Doctors check for this stuff.
    It's good that they found they out with you soon enough to keep it under control with diet.
    I hope this shake diet helps . I probably should go on in to and lose a few lbs with you. =)
