Hello from JustAnswer.
I assume that this was a fasting insulin level, correct?
Do you also have your fasting blood sugar and HgbA1c level?
I am not sure what you mean by day after fasting. When we refer to blood work, your are fasting every morning before eating breakfast. Do you mean that it was later in the day, rather than fasting?
Do you mean that your fasting insulin level was 16.9?
If the insulin level is fasting, then it would be considered normal in most labs. The ketone level also would be normal in most labs, whether fasting or not. What did this lab say was the normal ranges?
What is your fasting blood sugar levels? The 16.9? Or the 16.5?
If these are your blood sugar levels, what are the fasting insulin levels?
I asked if these levels were your fasting insulin levels and you said that it was morning and night time on the day of fasting.
What does the lab say is the normal range for the fasting insulin level and ketone level?
If you have the lab report, it may be more clear if you could attach the lab report.
You still have not clearly stated what is the levels of insulin and blood sugar. Saying that the blood level is 16.5 to 15.2 could apply to either blood sugar or insulin levels.
If the fasting blood sugar levels are 16.5 to 15.2, then this is indicative of diabetes mellitus. If the fasting insulin levels are 16.5 to 15.2, then that is normal.
As I noted above, a blood ketones level of 0.2 would be considered normal in most labs. Without an indication of the normal range in this lab that would be different, this would also be considered normal.
So, the only potential abnormality would be from diabetes, if the fasting blood sugar is running 15.2 to 16.5.
If it is the blood sugar that is running 15.2 to 16.5, then that would indicate that you have diabetes mellitus, also just simply called diabetes.
You are most welcome.
