C-Peptide Question


#1

So my doctor decided to do a c-peptide test this last blood work. I got the results back today.

C-Peptide 1.3 (1.1-4.4) - said this was borderline type I diabetes. Can this be true?

Additional Info:
Been battling low testosterone, low dhea, hypothyroidism for a couple of years now.

Here are my latest numbers:
Chol 210 - elevated
Trig - 71
HDL 46
LDL 150 - elevated
Progesterone - 0.6
Free T3 3.3
Free T4 1.32
TSH 2.27
Vitamin D - 106 - been running mega dosages of Vit D. Was 38 3-4 months ago.
Estrone - 18
Free Test - 11.6
Total Test - 341

Been taking DHEA 50mg a day...however prior to this test I switched to 25mg 7-Keto and 25mg of DHEA.

Also was taking HCG last time I was tested total test was upper 800s and free test was around 30. However, my estrogen levels were really elevated so I cut back on the HCG maybe too much and maybe thats why my total and free test were back down to a lower number.

Glucose was 90. I have more lab work if further info is needed. Thanks again.
