Default Low fasting insulin, high fasting glucose

Fasting insulin came out to be 4.16 and fasting glucose at 97. That proves I have become diabetic, doesn't it? I have been eating a diet of whole (brown) rice, fruits, veggies, fish and some wheat, exercising very hard, brought down my weight to 67 kg from 75 not long ago, reduced waist circumference from 92 cm to 85 cm and still I have been marked [1].

If you are, that is about the worst possible diet imaginable!

And even if it is PubMed, our forum rules require that you identify your sources. I understand that you cannot yet post links, but you can't just slap up text from other websites without citing your sources.

Is there some reason you have not seen your doctor about this?

Welcome! The insulin reading and the blood glucose of 97 is considered normal. The 97 is on the high end of normal but eating the amount of carbohydrates your eating it could be expected.

A good way to begin to understand what diabetes is; read and mark Blood Sugar 101 and also LCHF for beginners | DietDoctor.com to
learn how many of us eat to control it.

My portion sizes are not big. 97 is on the day after I did HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). Otherwise it shoots to 105 mg/dl, inside the pre-diabetic range. The low insulin of 4.16 in the presence of high glucose shows that the pancreatic islet cells have died.

HIIT can actually temporarily INCREASE your blood sugar, however ....

But yep, I would get GAD-65 autoantibody testing ...
