Re: Do I have diabetes?

Peaked at my bloodwork when the doctor wasn't looking, and my insulin test was in fact : insulin 181 40-190 pmol/L

My fasting blood sugar test came back negative (doctor didn't call me).

Should I try harder to request an A1c test? I think it is more accurate. I am still getting sugar spikes whenever I eat anything, even a salad or fruits (symptoms are extreme thirst and frequent urination) and I am very fatigued and hungry with even the slightest exercise. Symptoms are much worse after fasting for a short period (say a few hours) with poor circulation, extreme fatigue after eating, etc. Doctor confirmed I am insulin resistance and have metabolic syndrome. But didn't say I have diabetes.
