Please may I have some advice on Fasting Glucose results?
My daughter is having a blood test tomorrow for Glucose and Sex Hormones (She is a teenager with Ovarian Failure). As a consequence she is 'off' her BCP and has been for nearly six weeks. Please, how may this affect the Glucose results?
For my daughter, 'normal' means being on BCP/HRT - she'll need to be on HRT for the next 35 yrs! However, I have read that BCP/HRT elevates results... Would my daughter get a false result as a consequence of being estrogen deficient at the time of testing or moreover is she at increased risk of having elevated results go undiagnosed as a result of being off her BCP at the time of testing?
Your advice would be very appreciated, thank-you.
