The reports are absolutely normal. Why did you order fasting and post prandial insulin levels ??? Was she suffering from DM ??? As far as the reports are concerned they are absolutely with in normal limits. What is your query ???

It's sometimes good to see that all the reports are normal and we can move on to next case. Just reassurance and recheck screening for diabetes after 2 years, and lots of emphasis at this stage for LSM.

Sir pls check Hba1c to the average glycemic control and can start with@lifestyle modications and proper diet plan with high fiber and low carb diet

please post the case with clinical history and findings. reports are normal. but we need to know the indications for investigations

that's what I asked her Zuber
