Normal: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your results are within the normal limit. The one hour level is at the borderline. See this site for more info. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003466.htm

Why would my naturopathic doctor not recommend a 2 hr glucose test even if I have hypoglycemia symptoms?

Not needed: In my opinion, hypoglycemia is a clinical diagnosis. If you get shaky, irritable, nauseous or even dizzy when you haven't eaten in over 2 hours, you have hypoglycemia. The treatment is diet changes, eliminating, refined sugars, adding small amounts of protein every 2 hours.

Many protocols: You take your blood test before, take a set amount of boost or any other high calorie supplement (i prfer just have the patient have a normal meal) and you do a blood sugar 1 hr after. Some people might still be using glucola 1.75 gm/kg of weight to a max of 75 gm (adult dose).

May not be: If you're referring to the hba1c test, 6.0% may indicate a pre-diabetes condition if you don't already have a history of this or diabetes. If you have diabetes, then 6.0% indicates good blood sugar control overall (provided you aren't having lots of low blood sugars mixed in with high blood sugars).
