This means two things1)your fasting blood sugar is elevated. It is not at the diabetic level. It is prediabetic2)fasting insulin is elevated. This means that you are making too much insulin and becoming resistent to itSo in a nutshell, you are on your way to type 2 diabetes if you don't make some serious lifestyle changeslet me know if you have other questions.if done for now, please leave a positive rating above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you todaywe only get credit for helping clients after positive feedbackyou can always reach me with "a question for Dr. Phil" in the medicine, cardiology or pharmacy categories if you have any other questionshere is my website if you need to reach me again: for using
