What could low glucose but normal H1ac levels mean? (YANAD/YANMD)

Saw my primary care doc for annual physical. She did a metabolic panel and my glucose came up as 64 (70-110 is normal for this lab), 2 hours after eating, and my H1ac was 5.1 (Which falls within normal limits for them). I have an appointment with an endocrinologist in a week, which in my experience is very quick. However, what could I be looking at with this? Yes, you're not a doctor/my doctor, but thanks for any insight! [more inside]

How to Tell Excel to Evaluate Last Three Months (NOT Last 90 Entries)

I have an Excel spreadsheet I use to track glucose readings. There’s a value diabetics use called “A1C” which looks at the last three months of readings. It's based on a blood test, but can be estimated by averaging your readings for the last three months. I try to track every day, but I can’t reliably say “look at the last 90 values” – so I’m wondering how to set up a formula to tell it to only look at readings going back 90 days, not necessarily 90 readings.

What are considered "normal" results for a glucose tolerance test?

I am having trouble getting in with my doctor to review my results, so I'm looking for some initial info to see if it is worth pursuing. I had a glucose tolerance test done because of some symptoms that I'm having. I realize that these results aren't indicative of diabetes because they dip, but they do seem low (though I'm no doctor). Test 1: 95 Test 2: 85 Test 3: 55 Any idea whether I should be trying to schedule with my doctor? I live in a rural area, so it takes quite a trip for me to visit with the doctor.
