Our expert says:
The best test to have will be a glucose tolerance test, to determine your body's reaction to the consumption of glucose. An insulin resistance test will also be beneficial to determine if you are insulin resistant, as this is a predisposing factor in the development of diabetes. Your doctor should also test your thyroid and cortisol levels, as it can also be causes for weight gain.
