The results are in for my C-peptide and IgG, and I am very pleased!
(Please see my previous discussions for a long narrative on why I had these tests run.)
The C-peptide was 3.8 (reference 1.1-4.4)
GAD65 was 0.00 (reference <0.02)
IgG was <1:4 (reference <1:4)
So, if I am reading this correctly, I have no antibodies to suggest an autoimmune attack on my pancreas, correct?
As far as the C-peptide, I am assuming this means I am making adequate insulin on my own. I know this particular test is not the most accurate in the world, but it does tell me that I make at least some of my own insulin, right? Since it is in the normal range, I am wondering if that means I have a lot of insulin resistance?
By the way, this test was not fasting, I had eaten some oatmeal about 2 hours before the test.
My medications are 1,000 mg of Metformin daily, 1.8 mg Victoza nightly, and 32 units of Lantus nightly. Not sure how any of the above factors would have affected the test results.
