What is the interpretation of my GTT test ?

I had gastric bypass surgery 6 years ago and and 27 weeks pregnant. Instead of the traditional glucose test I am using a diabetes testing kit. Curious to understand if my results are normal. My resting tests before breakfast are around 92- 97. 2 hours after each of the 3 main meals it has been between 74 and 107. I would have anticipated seeing a higher variance after eating. Is this a reasonable range 2 hours following meals?

DEAR SIR/MADAM

I STUDIED YOUR CASE, YOU REALLY HAVE A REASONABLE 2 HOURS VALUES AFTER MEALS. SO IDEALLY YOU DONT NEED TO TAKE ANY MEDICATIONS RIGHT NOW.

My problem is with my stomach muscles.Inspite of my exercise and moderate food habits I have a stomach of 36 inches.When I sit down I have to adjust my belt by changing the hole.When I wear underwear I feel very tight in abdominal area.Thats why I stopped wearing underwaear except when I exercise. I consulted a specialist who is into weight loss surgery like gastric band and sleeve who initially suggested to go for liposuction.When I requested for a non surgical solution he offered me a complimentary session on Radio frequency Tripolar machine.He promised that I will loose 2 inches over 6 sittings.For each sitting there should be a gap of 2 weeks.He says the skin also will be tightened apart from fat reduction in the tissues.I have also read that this can be done by Ultrasound Lipolysis and Zerona laser treatments. Please suggest me which is ideal for reducing my stomach sag.

I am two years out from bariatric surgery. When I eat a meal, sometimes, I have to lay down because my heart starts beating so hard. What does it mean when I can feel my heart beating by putting my hand on my chest? It often takes up to 2 hours until the heart calms down.

I have had diarrhea off and on for the past 3 weeks, that started right after a viral infection. No fever, some nausea, and stomach pains very high right under breast. I did have gastric bypass 4 years ago. Everyone says it's just a thing going around, but 3 weeks straight? Just don't know what to do. Feeling very weak and tired all the time. Not eating much, and low fluid intake due to it all runs right through me. Thanks for any advise!
