After eating 75 grams of carbs (french bread) on relatively empty stomach, 1 hour gluc level was 190. 2 hour gluc level was 127. Normal? Pre-Diab?

You would also heed the fasting glucose, a standard part of an OGTT. Having said all that, your values could easily be normal. If you're worried, see your doc and do the REAL OGTT. Eat healthily and exercise regularly. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Belching: It sounds to me that the valve that stays between your esophagus and stomach may not be working well. There may be inflammation going on in it. It looks like you've been on dromperidone and pantaprazole. Wonder if those have helped. If they've not, the next step would be upper endoscopy (egd). ...Read more
