    Hey everyone,
    My Mum just got a set of blood tests back. Her insulin is extremely low (never been like that before). Does anyone know what this indicates?
    Her D3 was also really low - I seem to remember reading somewhere that this could be related? She has had hashimoto's for 10 years, but her insulin has never been out of the ordinary before now.

    This is what I'm understanding so far:
    Very little insulin is produced with Type 1.
    Type 2 produces insulin (sometimes lots, trying to keep blood sugar levels low), though ultimately your pancreas wears out (?)
    Hypoglycemia can be caused by too much insulin being produced, thus suppressing blood sugar too far, by "overshooting" what it's trying to control.
    My first thought with my Mum's insulin levels was diabetes... but I'm also reading that low insulin levels can be very healthy?
    We freaked for a moment that it might be cancer, but it's not a symptom of pancreatic cancer - phew.

    What sort of test did she have?
    Insulin reacts to and regulates blood glucose.
    Type 1 Diabetes: low insulin -> toxic blood glucose levels.
    type 2 Diabetes: high insulin -> toxic blood glucose levels.
    Low insulin and low/normal blood glucose is ,well, normal. Especially on a low carb diet if your mum is following one as well.
    Did the doctors make any comments/explanations or is this just something you noticed on the test results?
