I am in the early stages of getting approval. And I am borderline for their acceptance limits. 40 BMI or 35 with a co-morbidity. ( Luckly, at this point i do not have heart disease or high blood pressure. Unsure of sleep apnea)
I believe I am considered pre-diabetic. Before I got good insurance my doctor gave me an at home test to check levels off the books.
1 hour after eating english muffin 190
2 hour after eating 156
I understand this is just under the official "diabetic range". I need help. For my 5'6" size my waist is 46". I am 46 year oild female and can't seem to get the scale to budge. I'm hoping this surgery help but I don't want to wait another x amount of years for my health to continue to deteriorate like my mother and grandmother (who were not overweight).
My question is how can I get the highest readings possible for the official glucose test?
also, when I look up BMI charts there was a chart that took into account my waist size which made my
BMI much higher. When getting pre-approval do they use the standard BMI one size fits all chart or do they take into account female and where fat is being stored?
any help would be appreciated.
