I figure what this is the best place to ask about blood sugars. fasting bs is 95, 1 hr- 131, 2 hr-87, 3 hr-38 test was stopped. Insulin levls read, fasting < 2 verified by repeat analysis, 1 hr-33, 2 hr-31, 3 hr-6 . This was a test from 2 yrs ago that my doc insisted the hospital lost. Well it wasn't lost he just over looked it.

Danab, those are extremely low for the OGTT.  What's the latest from the doctor?  Sounds like you need to see an endocrinologist - a specialist.

I went to see one yesterday & he wanted me to have ogtt done because my doc never faxed him these results, so I went to the hospital & had them copy them. I'm hoping these will do. I'm praying they will do. I never want to go through that again. I'm just wondering can a person develop type 1 at age 41. I have been hypoglcemic since I was 16. The last4-5 yrs has been rough.

Yes, a person can become a type 1 in the adult years.  Search about LADA and type 1.5.  Very often it's difficult to diagnose because many doctors start out treating the patient as if he/she has type 2 but the meds for type 2 don't work.  The blood sugar drops and spikes all over the place despite the meds.  There are specific tests to determine how much insulin the pancreas puts out, if any.  Insulin therapy is needed but it's difficult to get through the haywire period.

Lanie, I looked into it. I do have lupus. My #'s don't seem to get high. I am on low carb diet, I am using low glycemic foods. The highest I've caught it lately is 146, & that was a hr or hr& 1/2 after I had ate. I was concerned about the <2 insulin after I fasted the night before my test. The reference range says <17 . Is this normal or is this showing I'm not making insulin?
