I just received my labs back after doing a 4 hour fasting blood test and the results showed that the insulin assay showed strong cross-reactivity for some insulin analogs (lispro, aspart, and glargine) and much lower cross-reactivity with others (detemir, gluslisine). Does anyone know what this might mean. Haven't been back to doctor yet but he left a voice message saying it appears I have Hyperglycemia....Does this make sense and what does this mean??

Hyperglycemia is term that means high glucose, or high blood sugar. That would be diabetes. But it doesn't tell you much more than that. I assume he'll explain it all to you when you see him.

I have no idea what the insulin verbiage means.

Diabetes isn't a diagnosis that anyone really wants, but it certainly can be kept under control. And this forum is a great place for help, support and encouragement.
