Glucose and triglycerides.

Thing's have been going so well I have been swimming with good fortune.  My recent blood works showed elevated triglycerides and pre-diabetic glucose levels.  I went on a 12 hour fast for the blood works, but the first window man was confused and didn't think it was really called for, so I went to another appt. then to another hospital.  But that was at hour 17 and I sipped a little cola and chewed some gum.  I'm wondering if that little bit could have thrown off my blood tests.  I was so hungry by that time.  I'm asking for another test on those items.  I'm also wondering if the stating could be affecting.  Here''s what all I take:  midrodrine, spironolactone, ferosemide, brillinta, aspir, atoravastatin, digoxin

    Good morning, I have to be honest that this is over and above experience or thoughts that I can offer. Could you ask your pharmacist? Thanks Katie

    Basically, triglycerides and glucose fluctuate constantly,hence a 'fasting' test as a baseline.And yes, medications can interfere with test results. So can your personal genetics.No doubt gum and cola would void the accuracy as well.
