Don't beat yourself up over not realizing your son had a real problem I do not understand the 71 BS nonfasting. That is perfectly normal. That is probably why the doctor is doing the glucose tolerance test. Yes, one's BS can [and often does] vary from day to day and hour to hour - even if you are not diabetic. There are parameters. If his glucose is way out of those parameters, it will give the doctor a diagnoses of diabetes. Otherwise, hoepfully the battery of blood work will find another answer for you. Good luck.
Thank you for your reply!! His 5hr glucose test showed his sugar level dropped in 2hrs to 49 when fasting. In 3 hrs started going up..which meant his body is pulling sugar from other areas of his body. hypoglycemic is the Dr. answer so he just takes extra things to eat after each class.
I hoping this doesnt lead into something else
