I would also like to add that you should also ask your doctor to retest you in 6 weeks to see if it was a false reading, that way you will not have any doubt. If you are hypo, then you will want to take the medicine prescribed so your body can normalize and heal. As Gimel stated above: get copies of your labs and post them here so we can take a look. :)
