Re: Questions about Diabetes

i am 73 years old female, i just learned my insulin level is 72 in the blood, what does it mean, I am not a diabetes, but my a1c is 6.1 - 6.3.

If I'm not mistaken, 72 is low. Also, your a1c number, if I'm not mistaken, isn't too bad.

Insulin level in the blood of 72 is NOT the same as a blood sugar of 72! Big difference. 6.1-6.3 is definitely getting into the diabetic range, if not there, however, would be well controlled, but definitely impaired! What does your doc say???
