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.

Hypothyroid, yes, hypoglycemic, yes, angioedemic, yes, hypokalemic, yes. Anorexic, no.

About a week ago I was diagnosed as hypokalemic by a Boston-based Masshealth doctor. Unfortunately, while treating the hypokalemia, the doc rode right over my medical context, which is to say long-standing hypothyroidism, angioedema, and hypoglycemia. Then, to add insult to injury, he decided I fit into the one medical box I don't actually fit into: Anorexia! How do I replace this foolish doc, with a more analytical MassHealth-approved variety? And who knows something about some blend of the low potassium, high-swelling-and-inflammation, high-protein-or-crash, hypothyroid experience? [more inside]

Why does hypoglycemic sweat stink so bad?

I am a type 1 [insulin-dependent] diabetic, and sometimes at night, when I haven't eaten enough to cover the insulin I took that evening, I 'bottom out': my blood sugar goes down very low and I wake up bathed in sweat and must go searching for orange juice. My question is about this: The nighttime sweat from low blood sugar just... stinks. It is powerfully rank sweat, as though I had not washed in many days. My partner agreed, he has noticed that it is different from any other sweat I sweat. "You NEVER smell like that any other time. It's a low blood sugar thing." Yet only at night! I also become clothes-soakingly sweaty if low blood sugar happens during the day, BUT it seems 'normal', the same as when I exercise. Can anyone tell me why this might be? Why is the night-time hypoglycemic sweat so incredibly smelly? [more inside]
