    Wierd results

    I am a healthcare professional and I had some weird test results. I have a 23 year old thin young lady with concerns that she may have diabetes. She gets all the symptoms associated with this and has a family history. Here is the kicker her hgba1c was 5.1 and her GTT was abnormal showing a fasting of 93 1/2 hour 177 1 hour 248 2 hour 238 and 3 hour 175 . she also showed at the different stages up to +3 glucose in urine . So what is up with the normal hgba1c and the abn gtt does this mean she is diabetic

    Most of us are not health care professionals, and the assigned Expert, Dr. Michael Dansinger, does not reply to posts very often.

    IMHO, and I am not a doctor, this young lady needs to see a doctor that is experienced with diabetes - perhaps an endocrinologist. That would be the only way to know exactly what is happening.

    I agree with Dave. She needs to see a doctor. It appears she does have a glucose problem but it could be either type 1 or type 2. Obviously in the early stages if her a1c is normal. More testing needs to be done and a specialist is in order.
