When did the Insulin Test come about?I don't recall my late Grandmother or Dad having such Test.I talked with an RN and CDE about IR and Insulin Test.At my Doctor's appointment in few Weeks mm going to talk with my Doctor about Testing.
"It will take at least 2 to 3 months to reestablish normal Insulin sensitivity.If there is severe IR or obesity it could take much longer to stabilize."
In 1 Month and 10 Day's,I have lost 20-25 maybe even 30 pounds and lowered my Blood Sugar 111,109 and 106 points,however continue to have higher readings though I drastically changed my Diet and added Exercise.
So on an Insulin Test a low number means Type I and a number over 190 suggests Type II?What if my level is somewhere in the middle though I've had 3 over 200 Blood Sugar readings on a Glucose Meter?
I have yet to discuss with my Doctor the readings from August 12 to present.I have an Appointment October 6,so will discuss my Blood Sugars,ask for an Insulin Test,Blood Chemistry and about Typing my Blood.I don't know what Type of Blood I have.
Do you think that since I haven't been treated for Diabetes that he will arrange for the Insulin Test?Being diagnosed with Reactive Hypoglycemia,but now having elevated readings,it shouldn't be a problem.
Thank you for the congrats.I am happy and ecstatic at my progress thus far,but still have 130's-160's.
I have Anxiety Disorder and am a chronic worrier,but am worrying my Head off because I continue to have readings that aren't where they need be after drastically changing my Diet and exercising.
