Pancreas oddness

This is my first time on the boards and first wanted to say hi!

So here is the issue that has baffled my doctor and left me wondering what the heck could be causing this. I have had slightly elevated testosterone, patchy hair loss, breakouts, odd shaking in left hand and a pain in my upper stomach. But that isn't the problems that are bothering me. I had taken a 2 hour glucose tolerance test, because diabetes does run in my family. My doctor said she highly doubts my shakeness was caused by this as because I am thin. I am 38 forgot to mention that. My test came back odd. Fasting blood sugar a nice normal 80 but the 2 hour mark my sugar was taken and it was 169. She thought labcorp maybe made a mistake, she she re-ordered it again to be done in her office. This time it was even higher. Fasting blood sugar was same 80 then after one hour my level was 260 then after 2 hours it was 201. She said I do not have diabetes or insulin reistance and even checked me for latent diabetes. She isn't sure what could cause this is no diabetes. SO help! I think they can all be related. I also have thyroid disease but that has been ok, I do not take meds for that.

Thanks
