How are you arriving at this conclusion? Are you home testing your blood glucose, or is this random or fasting lab testing results? How long have you been tracking this?

Heya Bill

Couple years ago they said i was on the cusp of becoming type 2....keeping in mind i cared and brought on track a brother who is type one...so pretty versed in this area.......i have maintained healthy levels until the last few weeks and find my testing is showing higher than normal levels 3 hours after eating...also waking up with elevated levels in the morning(fasting)...just curious if the tx is exaserbating this or if i am slowing sinking into the type 2 which almost makes no sense as I am now eating for once in my life healthy and appropriately....

Hake sure your doctor is aware of this, and have him/her monitor you as well. If this continues, it might be a good idea to suggest an insulin sensitizer like metformin, just to get you through treatment. Quite a few studies from the Spring EASL showed that insulin resistance can reduce the efficacy of HCV treatment.

A blood test known as ‘HOMA-IR’ can measure insulin resistance; it develops a ratio between serum insulin and fating blood glucose. This might make a large difference in treatment outcome; discuss this at your next treatment meeting, and let us know the outcome,
