Hello- I am not much of a poster, but I do read many forums here and I was hoping to get some insight regarding some new test results. Last year, I was revealed to have low cortisol throughout the day, along with borderline elevated DHEA levels and elevated testosterone. I have recently suspected insulin resistance as a problem so we ran a GTT test with Insulin Response. My results were: Fasting: Glucose 90; Insulin 3.8 1-Hour: Glucose 135; Insulin 19.4 2-Hour: Glucose 90; Insulin 27.4 3-Hour: Glucose 45; Insulin 2.7 It appears as though I have a delayed insulin response, however the insulin levels never appear to elevate to an extreme level, but this pattern does appear to be causing reactive hypoglycemia. I am wondering if anybody is familiar with this pattern. One thought I had was that this could be an insulin resistant state, but the adrenals are lowering cortisol production and elevating DHEA as protection against hyperglycemia and increased insulin levels and that perhaps some underlying mechanism is causing an endogenous insulin resistance problem. In other words, possibly a masked diabetic state. My doctor attempted to treat me with some low-dose hydrocortisone (as it was only slightly below the range) but this ended up making me feel worse. Anybody have any insight?
