Default Teen with Insulin Resistance

My 17 year old daughter had a 2 hour glucose tolerance test done a year ago, her results are as follows:

Fasting Glucose:88
2 hour post Glucose: 143
Fasting Insulin: 55
2 hour post Glucose: 338
Her BMI at that time was almost 30.

Her labs were just repeated after losing 40 pounds, they are as follows:

Fasting Glucose: 75
2 hour post Glucose: 112
Fasting Insulin: 12
2 hour post Insulin: 192
Her BMI now is 24.

I understand her numbers are significantly better, but can anyone help me with the 2 hour post Insulin level. The Endocrinologist told us last year it was all weight related, well, she's lost 40 pounds and has a normal BMI now and it's still VERY HIGH. Does anyone have any knowledge of this?? Is this Diabetes? Does it need treatment?

Thanks So Much!

Hi, lakegirlz
My husband and I are both type 2 diabetics. When it comes to 2 hour post glucose, normal for a teenager is less than 140 mg/dL, and her test shows 112 so it looks good to me.

For a teenager to lose 40 pounds in a year is a great accomplishment, not at all easy. Congratulations to her.
