Confused about blood fasting sugar status, hb1ac, triglycerides.
I have been keeping a track of my bloodwork for last 9 months or so. And my trigylcerides are sky high. When I consciously walk everyday as much as I can they do come down but still very high.September 2018- 680, October - 285 (with the help of fibrate but that also messed my liver and fasting sugar levels i.e. 112) January- 460, April 566, June 385 .Vldl is usually double the normal limit. LDL and total chol is normal always. This was induced due to corticosteriod use which i was given without telling me, basically unethically. It's not genetic in my case ,Hypertriglyceridemia.
I went for Hb1ac - 4.7 (it was 5.7 two years ago ),C- peptide- 1.05 , Blood fasting glucose in 3 labs on 3 consecutive days : 111, 94, 89. I don't know which one to trust. glucometer readings are 110, 112,116 and even go upto 131 on different fingers in the same minute, 109, 116. Also the levels are different based on 8 hour 10 hour and 12 hour fasting time periods. Doctors say that they do not rely on glucometers for diagnoses and hb1ac was 4.7 so no way i have sugar but i have high triglycerides. I really do not want to take medicines and just modify my life style. I work a 9 to 5 , travel by car. The different lab results confused me as well, 89,94, 111. And post meal my result was 106 from the lab that showed 89 fasting.
I know there are mnay variables but i have stiff feet in morning, some dark patches on my chest and stomach, little 3-4 wart like things, had sweet taste in my teeth which went away on salt gargles and comes back too. Doctors are not helpful at all. Went to like 9 docotrs
