insulin resistance or diabetes
Nov 7, 2002
Can you be either insulin resistant or diabetic but still have normal glucose readings everytime you have your regular labs drawn? i did take pi's for along time(crixavan then viracept).I'm not currently on any ativirals under doctor supervision.The reason I ask is I do drink tons of water(maybe just conditioned myself to this)but I also have a lower belly(not viseral) that no matter what I just can't lose it.So is it possible to have normal glucose levels but something is still awry?Thank you

You could have some degree pre-diabetes or insulin resistance. That would get picked up by a 2 hour glucose tolerance test and/or a fasting insulin and glucose level. Usually if you are drinking lots of water due to diabetes the random blood sugars will be elevated. KH
