Question: Do I have diabetes?


 ihavequestions - Tue Sep 20, 2005 6:47 pm

After a fasting blood test, my blood sugar was 69...I was told that was good...now my doctors office is telling me I may have diabetes because (from the same blood work) my insulin levels is low. Unfortunatley I do not know what the insulin level was. What could be wrong?
