Background Info Hide
I am currently 32 years old..when I was 25 I found out that I have type 1 diabetes as well as thyroid disease (hypo)..My daughter was 3 at the time... 2 years ago she was diagnosed with Hoshimotos disease which she got from me. From my research from diabetes for dummies ( addition 1 &2) :) I learned when you have 1 autoimmune disease you are more suceptible to getting another. She has had an A1C which was 5.5 which is ok but i think if it was 2 points higher it would have been "flagged" just wonder if this could be a sign of something coming in the future like the begining..

It is good that you are being vigilant about testing. I would say that the 128 blood sugar may be a cause for concern, not alarm. You can continue to test especially two hours after the largest meal of the day to record the trends. You cannot ever jump to a conclusion from just one reading. You need to test again at different times, record your results, then check back in with your health care team for a more conclusive answer and lab work. Have a great holiday!
