A question for diabetics

How did you know there was a problem?

I was diagnosed as hypoglycemic as a teen. My sugars tend to drop or at least used to. When I was pregnant with DD, 3 years old, I had gestational diabetes. There is a strong family history of diabetes on both sides of my family. Because of these things, I tend to eat little sugar and lower carb.

Last summer, I had an issue and my blood sugar numbers were higher than I liked. I had an appointment with my doctor and showed him everything I had eaten and my sugars both fasting and two hours after eating. He wasn't too concerned but still ordered an A1C. It came back normal. That was in July. I felt off yesterday and checked my sugars and was at 148 almost 3 hours after eating. I ate again and they came down to 88 two hours after eating.

I am considering purchasing a home A1C and doing it again since it has been 6 months. I know I need to track my sugars better since I haven't been. I guess I am just wondering if I am on the right track. I would really really like to avoid having to give myself shots again!
