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

Steroid induced.: Although you should repeat the glucose , the most likely cause of the glucose elevation is the steroid use, "prednisolone". It occurs often during use and should return to baseline after discontinuation. Repeat your level 1-2 weeks after stopping the medication and if it remains elevated consult your primary physician. ...Read more

Has anyone seen a patient with adrenal insufficiency, intermittent ovarian failure, intermittent glucose intolerance, and thyroid values in normal range? Perhaps also with a pituitary tumor?

Has anyone seen a patient with adrenal insufficiency, intermittent ovarian failure, intermittent glucose intolerance, and thyroid values in normal range?  Perhaps also with a pituitary tumor?

Pituitary tumors: You need an endocrinologist to sort this out. A big pituitary tumor (>10 mm) can wipe out other hormones; you could lose some (eg reproductive) but not others. Typically the last to go from a pituitary insult is TSH and acth (thyroid and adrenal), but odd things can occur. A micro tumor does not usually damage the rest of the pituitary, but may produce excess hormone (eg. Prolactin, acth). ...Read more
