Brief Answer:
Your insulin level is high.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
Your hemoglobin is slightly low. But it is not a cause of big worry.

But your insulin level is very high.
Normal level is 6-27 microIL/ml.

It can be seen in insulinoma, factitious hypoglycaemia, insulin autoimmune syndrome or cirrhosis of liver.

You should go for blood sugar test, liver function test and ultrasound abdomen to search the cause of high insulin.

Then you should take treatment accordingly.

So consult your doctor and go for investigation.
Give me follow up with your reports.

Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
