I have yet to be diagnosed with anything other than hypoglycemia, with varying readings coming from bayer meter and libre (which I’ve found for me isn’t too accurate with lows, but it seems to be an issue?)
I’ve been through a lot of testing and I’m perplexed.
A1c is always below normal limits at around 3.9. However I don’t think I’m having that many dips in the day to cause this number? My endo and I theorized that maybe it’s when I’m sleeping, since a couple years ago I’ve started getting up in my sleep and drunkenly (that’s what it feels like) walking to the kitchen to eat junk. We also theorized maybe reactive hypoglycemia since I have dysautonomia. Now I think she was theorizing hypokalemic periodic paralysis, but I don’t know now after the mixed meal study results. My sugar doesn’t run very high, and at the mix meal study only hit 133, the 3hr glucose tolerance though it went over 200.
So here’s everything, if anyone has any clue
Showing a little anemic with iron and transferrin borderline low and TIBC borderline high.
Mixed meal study
Baseline was normal and fasting 12hrs
Insulin -high at 106, 25 is upper normal
C peptide-high at 5.8, 3.9 is upper normal
Glucose again only shot to about 130.
These results repeated through the 3 hours
My last result at 4 hours my glucose had dropped about 30-40 points in 1hr to 78
And the c peptide and insulin were normal.
In the middle of the test my potassium dropped to a little under low normal and shot to mid range before returning to a little above the low normal.
ACTH and cortisol were fine.
We are waiting on glucagon and steroid test results.
Anyone have these issues with low a1C, hypos, and high insulin and c peptide response??
