lab tests

I recently had lab tests done checking insulin and glucose tolerance. I'm reading from the lab report so not sure if I have the proper name of the tests but one of the tests was a 3 hour glucose test.

Since having this done I decided not to see the doctor that ordered the test and I have not yet found the type of doctor I'm looking for to replace her (one more alternatively inclined). In the meantime, I have no idea if a problem exits. Any suggestions on how I might interpret the results from this lab report?

Thanks.

Re: lab tests

Most lab work will come with a normal range and an indicator if the result was high or low.

I'm not quite sure why you are wanting to switch doctors when you haven't even discussed the results with this one yet. Believe it or not, many docs are willing to try more natural remedies (diet, exercise, supplements) when it comes to diabetes. You need to check with this doc first and give him/her a chance before you move on to someone else. That's my own opinion anyway.

I'm not quite sure why you are wanting to switch doctors when you haven't even discussed the results with this one yet. I have my reasons, which I trust Believe it or not, many docs are willing to try more natural remedies (diet, exercise, supplements) when it comes to diabetes that is not the issue . You need to check with this doc first and give him/her a chance before you move on to someone else. As I stated, I trust my decision. I will wait until I find another doc
