Non-fasting glucose blood sugar test and had a symptom of diabetes. Doctor tells me that my blood work is fine. So should is that reliable? Or do I need another work up?

Realize that: Many things can cause symptoms of diabetes. Not sure exactly which symptoms you are referring, but the most classic are polyuria (urinating too much), nocturia (urinating in the middle of the night) and polydipsia (drinking too much water). Ideally you would have either a hemoglobin A1C, or "fasting" plasma glucose, or an oral glucose tolerance test (less commonly done now). ...Read more

How could a fasting glucose level increase?

Liver glucose output: The liver manufactures glucose. Many things regulate it, but the reason most people have elevated fasting glucoses is because the liver may become resistant to insulin. Normal Insulin production/sensitivity helps to keep liver glucose output normal. When the liver becomes resistant to the effects of insulin, it will not be able to keep glucose production down to normal. This ⬆risk for diabetes. ...Read more
