diabetes with no symptoms/probable cardiovascular system damage
two more things i wanted to add:
1. my blood work has been good for lipids and fasting glucose- my A1c was 5.6, which i knew would be off since i was anemic at the two times i had it done. what i didn't realize is that the A1c will be artificially low if someone is anemic and in actuality should be much higher.
2. i have been eating not extremely high fat, but fatty sausage, burgers, eggs, etc thinking it was OK since I was eating low-carb. The problem is my diet was actually just like a high carb diet since my body couldn't process glucose correctly and my blood sugars were probably high. so i probably did some damage to my heart and vascular system which i will try to reverse.
what symptoms did i have that i was diabetic? none. sometimes you have to test based on factors other than symptoms (such as family history and other abnormalities, such as giving birth to large babies)
