Ok, 6 moths ago blood work
Trygli -50
Glucose- 89

My ? is the glucose, last 2 - 3 times it has been 89, now the only thing I see different is my tryglycerides are higher, would that cause my glucose to go higher ?
I ate some pretzles the night before my test too.
Also another thing I did different was I ran before the test, not a huge run but maybe a mile to the lab, then had the test right away ...
Im flipping over the glucose, the Dr doesnt see a problem and the la=b has the upper limit as 110 but still...whacha think
