Glucose tolerance test results (dr. Says nothing wrong)

Gtt. Pre-test glucose level: 85, 30min 139, 1hr 70, 2hr 95. My dr says this is normal test. The lab told be before I left it was not. I had a lot of other test done at the same time, and I have a uti, and elevated sed rate. No thyroid problems, high triglycerides. Im doubting my dr. because he wants me to take meds for the triglycerides, without trying diet and exercise. Im dizzy all the time after I eat, and when I get stressed.

I think the lab was right. Your glucose level shouldn't have gone low at 1 hour. It's expected to peak at 45min - 1 hour after meals / glucose solution, and than to gradually get back to your fasting level (or close) by hour 2.
