I just recently had a OGT test, and have been given the diagnoses of prediabetic. My fasting glucose level was 110, but after drinking the Glucola it didn't move, and when I left my sugars were still 110. My insulin and c-peptide levels were high as well. I was having the test because for the past 9 years I have had strong orthostatic hypotension responses that have been unable to be diagnosed. I am also cold and tired all of the time, and have "pins & needles" sensations in my fingers and toes. My normal blood pressure is 110/70, but I am on Midodrine to raise it. I don't know what my blood pressure is now that I am on the Midodrine. My cholestoral, I believe, is normal. My thyroid levels were normal. I am 26 years old, female, 156lbs and 28% body fat. My father has type 2 diabetes, also. I think there might be something else going on, but I don't know where to look.
