I met with the doctor on Friday to discuss my labs. My cortisol was 23.1. The cutoff for their lab is 23. I have googled myself silly and really hope I don't have Cushings Syndrome. It does cause diabetes and anxiety but I think I'd rather just have diabetes and anxiety. I will have to collect my urine for 24 hours and swallow two pills to see if they suppress my levels. Anyway, my c peptide was 1.96 and my GAD 65 was zero. I don't remember exactly what they measure (I am not googling anymore)but he said my pancreas was working great. Really? Then why do I have diabetes? Is it just insulin resistance? He also told me to keep losing weight and I didn't have to be so strict on my diet. He also thought I could drop one of my metformins a day but really don't want to do that until I lose more weight. Thoughts? Encouragement?
