Glu tolerance: That is a normal glu tolerance test. In addition, if you calculate homa-ir from the fasting glu and insulin, that is a very good value (i.e. Not Insulin resistant). The question, however, is why are these measurements being made? You list metformin as a medication. This does not make sense if you have normal glucose tolerance.
