Can someone help me understand the c peptide test? I found out the result of mine was 4.5. What does that mean? I was diagnosed type 1 in December in DKA and a BG of 550. This is the first time I've had bloodwork done since diagnoses (test was done exactly 2 months after diagnosis). Right now I'm honeymooning, so I'm still making some of my own insulin but I'm using lantus as well. BG are good fasting and before meals 80s & 90s. 2 hour post meals are high 100's to 220ish. My endo thinks i'm definetly going to add some novolog to the mix as well.
But anyway, I'm really confused as to what the c peptide test measures. What are the ranges for guidelines and things like that? What do the results mean?
I had the test done fasting (8:00 am) if that helps anything
By the way in only 2 months after diagnosis I dropped my a1c from 14.8 to 7.6! So that is definetly some inspiring news!
