Weird Scores on Impaired Glucose Tolerance - 100, 104, 164

Fasting blood glucose was 100. An hour after ingesting the sugar drink, it remained virtually unchanged at 104. However, at the two hour mark, it shot up to 164. Strange.

Don't know what to make of it, and neither did my new-age, holistic primary care physician. Said I should go see an endocrinologist who would be more familiar with the nuances of such results.

Initially went to see my doc due to what I perceive to be persistently low energy levels, and yet I don't sleep well or much. Lots of stress. He said I fit squarely in the category of "tired and wired". He mentioned something about my adrenals and urged me to see a specialist right away.

Testosterone is normal. Alkaline Phosphatase is high, and so is my Fibrinogen. Hemoglobin A1C climbed up a couple tenths to 6.5 since my blood work a couple of months ago.

Any insights offered here would be sincerely appreciated, thank you.
