Re: Has anyone here ever heard of Intermittent Acute Porphyria? If so, please read
What is it you need to know about AIP? both my mom and I have it
There are tests that can say if you have Porphyria but the simple test to see if you do is if you are having an attack, you pee into a clear clean cup and put it in the sunlight if it turns purple your in the middle of a porph attack.
There are also DNA testing that can be dun, but without the other tests which can easly come back negative its hard to get a doc to preform the DNA test.
As to your glucose control mmol 14 after a GTT is diabetic range, though some endos put that to be Insulin Resistance and not type 2 diabetes right off the bat, and you should be getting treatment for it, if you where normal after at GTT test you wouldn't have spiked to 14.
Also porph is the great mimiker it can look like other conditions, have you been checked for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, or Cushings? since some of the same signs and symptons can be signs of other conditions, not only proph. Because of the triggers you listed I'd be more inclided towards PCOS then porph.
