I am looking for some help... My daughter has has stomach problems all her life, they have recently gotten much worse, and now she is breaking out in hives inside her mouth and down her throat, on her belly, etc... We have taken her to several different specialists, PED ENT, PED GI SPEC, ALLERGIST/Immunologist... They have done blood work and allergy testing. Although her blood sugar results are normal, her proinsulin level is high. Apparently 0-9 is normal and hers is 12. She is also moderately allergic to egg whites and milk... The receptionist who called said that she thought the elevated proinsulin level means that she is not diabetic but is more prone to diabetes, but she wasn't sure and we don't have the appt. with the dr. for several more weeks. Can anybody explain what an elevated proinsulin level means? I tried to google for info, but unfortunately, I don't understand what they are talking about.
