I went to my Doctors appointment on Thursday and he suggested putting me on Metformin, which I had been planning on asking about anyway. However, before I can be put on Metformin I had to get some blood work done. He also wanted me to stay on Clomid because it is supposed to work even better paired with Metformin. I decided to give it another shot and he doubled my dose.
On Friday I went and had my blood drawn (and I still have the bruises to prove it!) I was sent for three tests.
- A1C test ( it is like a 2-3 month average blood sugar)
- 2 Hour Glucose test (test in which glucose is given and blood samples taken afterward to determine how quickly it is cleared from the blood)
- Insulin Fast (A fasting serum insulin level of greater than the upper limit of normal for the assay used (approximately 60 pmol/L) is considered evidence of insulin resistance)
