Lab test done for blood sugar, alkaline phosphotase levels, hbg levels, AbC1 level, started eating protein

I am an 18 year old male who is very active and weighs a mere 125 pounds.  Lately I have been having some problems managing my blood sugar .  I did have lab tests done, although I did not schedule a follow-up. I do remember some of the statistics from the report though. They were as follows: high alkaline phosphotase levels, elevated T3, elevated Hbg levels ( white blood cell count was normal). I seem to go through periods of time when it seems as though I am having more trouble managing my sugar. I have had to start eating protein and trying to stay away from a lot of carbs. There were a few other levels that were elevated however I don t remember them. I do remember my AbC1 level was 6.1. What do these elelevels seem to point to? Please respond I really have been suffering from this but don t have time because of baseball and soccer. Thank you!

Hello and welcome to HCM,

It is evident from your history that you are suffering from diabetes mellitus and you are not able to maintain your blood sugar levels.
HbA 1c is done to see the blood sugar control over a period of past three months.
A value of 6.1 suggests a fair control.

Elevated levels of T3 suggests hyperthyroidism.
Alkaline phosphate is elevated in many conditions like liver disease however, a single investigation is not of much help.
The entire function tests need to be done.

Monitor your fasting blood sugar and post prandial levels regularly.
Stay in touch with your physician/ diabetologist.

Thanks and take care.
