Low Fasting Insulin Test Results?
I did a lab test and the result was fasting insulin u0026lt; 2 reference values were 3.2-28.5 then fasting glucose 80.1 reference value u0026lt; 100. The question is what causes my fasting insulin to be low? How can I fix this? The test is done at 11 weeks of gestation ..
From the information you have conveyed, a decrease in low fasting insulin levels can be caused by low blood sugar levels or a condition of less than optimal food intake.
When blood sugar levels decrease, insulin is not produced too much, this is to meet the body's needs for metabolism.
However, when blood sugar levels increase, insulin production will increase to transport your blood sugar levels into the body.
When your blood sugar levels are high, however, your insulin is low, indicating a risk of impaired insulin production, which is a risk for type 1 diabetes.
Thus, to ascertain your clinical condition and determine the cause of decreased fasting insulin levels, it is necessary that the results of this examination be submitted directly to the doctor who referred you. This way, your internal medicine doctor will plan further tests that have caused a drop in insulin levels, whether due to a normal condition such as a fasting patient or a carbohydrate diet; or the possibility of a pancreatic tumor causing insulin production failure, a history of pancreatic surgery, pancreatic infection, or a disease that causes pancreatic damage.
Blood tests and radiology can be arranged to help make this diagnosis.
That is the information we can convey, also read insulin.
