I have been diagnosed with hyperglycemia as well as insulin

Customer Question

I have been diagnosed with hyperglycemia as well as insulin resistant. The Dr I see in Canberra doesn't believe in insulin resistance and says I am a diabetic (I have never had a raised blood sugar level) and the calcium level keeps going up. He sees me for 5mins and then tells me to come back in 6 months

what is your fasting blood glucose and your hemoglobin a1c level?
have you had a glucose challenge test? these can tell if you have diabetes or not.
what is your calcium level?
