You don't say if you have already been diagnosed with diabetes or not. A fasting bloodsugar of 129 is too high. Anything over 126 is considered diabetes. You want it under 100. I have no idea what "RBS" is but a bloodsugar of 93 is good.
I've been taking metformin 500mg once daily for the 6 weeks. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span>fasting<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> level has gone down 71 mg/dL and hasn't gone over 80mg/dL for the last 5 days. My bloodsugar level after meal in the evening (I took 2 hours after dinner) has been under 100 mg/dL for the last 7 days.
Should I stop taking medication? I've just called my doctor but his office is closed today because of snow storm. I'm afraid that the glucose level might go lower 70mg/dL if I continue to take the medicine.
Is it possible to have diabetes without having high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>? I've never had a glucose level over 90 on any blood test. I've had to have labs done several times throughout the last couple of years. It's usually 70-80. Once 90. Never anything else. I have to go in tomorrow for testing because my urine has had a strange odor. I don't want to say it's sweet but it's kinda similar. I've never been overweight and have never had a recorded high glucose level.
The way that a diagnosis of Diabetes is made these days is this. If she were to have a fasting<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> glucose test of over 120 more than 2-3 times a definitive diagnosis would be made. Also, if she were to have a random test one time and it was 200 or more, she would be diagnosed with Diabetes. You must take into consideration, that even a normal person, after eating, bloodsugars can and will rise.
At dinner I ate lasagna, salad, sweet tea. Anyway 30-45 minutes after dinner, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> was 118. Is this normal or does it seem kind of high? At the doctor last year fasting it was 91.
Also, I have been suffereing from severe fatigue after my long runs and have to basically sit down for the rest of the day which I hate. I am going to start to check my bloodsugar after these runs to see what it is. I eat alot after the long runs but it does not seem to help.
I really have no idea if there can be a connection but if you want to check glucose levels you should do fasting and two hours after a meal. Normal fasting should be under a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>100</span> (diabetic is over 126). Normal postprandial would be under 120.
Just an off the cuff question about your arrythmia after meals. Do you also have symptoms of acid reflux?
