Results from 2hr oggt:
blood draws: 1/2 hr=230; 1hr=292; 2hr=250
blood tests are negative for diabetes.
Is this glucose intolerance or insulin ?

Diabetes: This is consistent with diabetes. The 2 hour after challenge should be < 140. If 140-199, that's prediabetes. I'm not sure what you mean by "blood tests negative for diabetes." go back to your doctor and ask for a test called a1c. This will confirm and tell you the severity of the diabetes. ...Read more

Normal glucose test. Can eating lots of sugar (cookies) and carbs in 3 days reverse normalcy and cause gestational diabetes? 108 glucose 19.6 BMI 25w

Short-term sugar OK: Secondary forms of diabetes (not the autoimmune insulin-requiring types), including the gestational type, are caused by cells become desensitized to insulin. This happens when Insulin levels are always high due to high sugar intake. It takes time; pregnancy just adds to the process. Three days of cake or girl scout cookies won't do anything if you weren't already heading that way. ...Read more

Can a donut with 380 cals., 21g fat, 15mg cholesterol, 460mg sodium, 46g carbohydrates, 25g sugar raise your blood sugar, cholesterol &blood pressure?

Can a donut with 380 cals., 21g fat, 15mg cholesterol, 460mg sodium, 46g carbohydrates, 25g sugar raise your blood sugar, cholesterol &blood pressure?

Poor diet: I am a bit surprised. You do not need a physician to tell you that eating a high sugar food would raise your blood sugar. Testing for cholesterol in a non-fasting state makes the test completely invalid. One donut would not cause the disease of hypertension. ...Read more

Blood test showed Lactate Dehydrogenase 103 (reference 140-271). Is this bad? Severely Fe deficient, trying to find cause.

LD 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 LD level is normal and hemolysis of red cells is not a cause of anemia. I trust that you are taking oral iron supplement and multivitamins. Iron deficicency may be due to excessive menstrual blood loss, if so, see gynecologist ...Read more

Amyloidosis, all my symptoms , heart, liver high ggt, brain, neurological, gasrto and urinary, lungs. GFR not released, what is the genetic blood test?

Self-diagnosis?: Amyloidosis can mimic anything. It's not especially treatable so there's no hurry diagnosing it.

Amyloid AA labwork isn't specific; it's rare in the absence of leprosy etc. I'd have a fat biopsy -- maybe you actually do have it. ...Read more
