do you have any answers?
Please wait I am typing an answer.

Thanks a lot for your input . I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concerns but later you can ask anything you want. I would like to reassure you that there is nothing wrong with her. Her peptide levels are normal. Low peptide or creatinine doesn't mean anything abnormal. For diabetes, she should get her HbA1c test done. This will tell that how her blood sugar has been in past 3 months. High albumin at this level is also not a problem. Just relax. I am sorry for the delay as it was due to some problem with the notification. My best wishes and prayers will be following you for a good health. Your excellent feedback is requested and will be appreciated. Regards

Thank you. The peptide levels on the lab report said that they were low. Why are her glucose levels peaking at 10-12 when eating carbs. Could she be developing type 1.5 diabetes.

Are these levels of glucose done when she is on empty stomach?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Initially her glucose was around 6 in the morning before eating but now better on a low carb diet, around 4.5. The peaks at 10-12 are about 30 mins after eating
Only fasting glucose is more important. If its below 5.6, it's perfect.
But if its around 6 then HbA1c should be checked.
