I have a question that's been bugging me for years. I am in very good shape, exercise daily (weight lifting, running, soccer twice a week), and eat a low carb diet. Fish, chicken, veggies mostly. I use either soy or olive oil to cook and on salads. Carbs consist of about 50 g beans daily, 3 pieces of fruit a day, 2 slices of whole wheat bread and a daily oatmeal shake (made with low fat soy milk). I eat virtually no red meat. I drink a glass of wine dailyand the occasional beer. Lots of water and green tea. No soft drinks, no fruit juices. No white pasta, white rice or refined sugar products.

OK, here's the question: My FBG is always between 90 and 100, no matter what I do. Some examples: In 2005, it was 98. In 2007 it was 90. 92 in 2008. In 2011 it was 97. The rest of my blood panel is enviable. My doc just shrugs when I ask him why it's that high. I have read that it should be less than 90. I'm stumped. I can't eat or be any healthier. So what's going on here? I'm 53 and in athletic shape. No diabetes in the family.

Thanks. I know most of you are dealing with much more difficult heath issues than this.
