Hi

We have been TTCing for over a year now. When things did not work out, we visited a gynae, who ordered a variety of tests.

(Background : 29 years old female Indian, Height 5'2'', Diabetic Paternal Relatives, Regular periods)

Abnormal Results:
Date: 29/01/11

Fasting Insulin : 151.56 mU/L
Fasting Glucose : 116 mg/dL
Glucose PP : 151 mg/dL
TSH : 5.27 microIU/mL
Total Cholesterol : 198 mg/dl
Triglyceride : 175 mg/dl
HDL : 26 mg/dL
LDL : 137 mg/dL
VLDL : 35 mg/dL
Hb1Ac : 5.8
Weight : 89 kgs

100 gm OGTT:

0 hrs Fasting : 110 mg/dl
1 hr : 214 mg/dl
2 hr : 160 mg/dl
3 hr : 56 mg /dl

Doc put me on 500 x 3 mg Metformin, 25 mg Eltroxin and Folic Acid + Diabetic diet + Exercise since 8th Feb 2011.

Date: 12 / 03 / 2011

75 gm OGTT:

0 hrs Fasting : 99 mg/dl
0.5 hr : 183 mg/dl
1 hr : 210 mg/dl
1.5 hr : 153 mg /dl
2 hr : 85 mg/dl

TSH : 2.906 microIU/mL

Weight is now down to 82 kgs with Meds, Diet (No sugar, No white rice, No junk food) and light walking.
Doc has increased Metformin dosage to 850 x 2 + 500 mg.

Please suggest whether I am on the correct track and if there is something I can do. Also what is the future? Am I a diabetic?

How soon can we TTC again?

All other test results are normal - LH, FSH. Prolactin, Husband’s Semen analysis, Pelvic Ultrasound (save a cycst which Doc says may go away on its own).

Appreciate your feedback. :-)
