Blood Glucose = 125 after 12 hour fast?
Sorry, I'm sure this has been addressed and I did a forum search but didn't find exactly the same scenario:
I'm 41 male and have about 30 lbs of fat to lose. Blood glucose testing all my life had always been 85-95 through fat and thin.
Went primal 6 weeks ago and have lost 6 or 7 lbs so it's working and I feel great.
Had a blood draw after 12 hour fast the other day and BG was 125. Actually felt a little lightheaded during the draw, which was a first for me ever giving blood.
Not really alarmed but just curious what's happening with the 125 level. Is this the fat stores releasing into my blood from going primal and making the reading high? Is it less insulin in my blood? Since I was feeling a little woozy, did my muscles/liver/fat dump emergency extra glucose into my blood and spike the readings?
Thanks for any insight.
