Avatar n tn After I gave him something really sweet to drink about 45 minutes later he was ready to eat. So do we have a problem with low sugar or high sugar? Is this something to worry about? He cant't talk so he can't tell us how he feels. My husband won't have insurance until the end of April. So were kinda stuck at the moment with being able to get anyone to help us. We were also told that since his seizures last that long we should really be worrying about brain deteriation. We don't know what to do.
Avatar n tn meditate or some other coping skill) Now to address your high fasting blood sugar in the morning ... your body does not burn much energy while you are sleeping so it it very likely that your blood sugar spiked before going to bed. Whatever you are ingesting in the late afternoon and/or evening should be substituted for something light (low carb count and minimal sugar content). Check your blood sugar 2 hrs after your last meal of the day. The reading should not be higher than the A.M.
Avatar f tn It really depends if u need insulin or pills, if you cant control your blood sugar then you take pills if your blood sugar is not high. But if normally your fasting numbers are high then thats why they put you on insulin. I have a coworker that went straight to insulin and shes a diabetic now but her numbers were crazy high like in the 500 when she did the glucose test. The doc just prob know that pills wont help you.
Avatar n tn I tested my blood sugar this morning and it was 105. Would you say this is out of the normal range. I had blood work done about a month ago when I had my annual physical and my sugar level came back at 109. My doctor didn't seem to alarmed.
1058898 tn?1275678751 You need to be tested for HA1C, which gives a measure of blood sugar control over the past few months. In the meantime I would strongly suggest that you assume you do have diabetes and adopt the lifestyle (diet and exercise) measures that are necessary to control it.
1058898 tn?1275678751 I notice my blood sugar at night between 2-3 am are over 120 and my fasting blood sugar in the morning is over 100. When i get the fealing of low it is around 80 and it will keep dropping. the last time it went to 67 and i had to eat some thing i couldnt wait. i had a cup of oj and checked in 15 min and it went to 137. I have also notice that i spike about 1 hour after eating and come down around 2 hours after which is mostly in the 130. and i notice if i drink a can of pop.
1448460 tn?1284698067 I was on prednisone for several months and my blood sugar was rarely below 400 which is why they put me on insulin. If you are overly concerned, speak with your doctor or diabetes consultant. Don't be passive about your health, be proactive and talk to your doctors about your concerns and fears. You are working with them as part of a team, with the goal of getting you back to healthy again. Best of luck and my prayers go out to you for a speedy recovery!
Avatar f tn I am on metformin 2000mg, but my blood glucose is still high in the morning yet low after my evening meal. Is there anything I can do to lower the readings.And why would this be happening. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/720106'>Diabetic meds</a>.
Avatar f tn Hi, to get a better idea, fasting blood sugar to be normal should be in the 80s and definitely less than 100. If your fasting is greater than 126 you get diagnosed as diabetic. 2 hours after eating blood sugar should be < 120. If it is greater than 140 it of concern. I'd like to know your fasting and 2 hours post eating numbers. Blood work for an A1C should be done. Yes, I think you should be concerned and should followup with your doctor.
Avatar n tn Last night before going to bed my reading was 112, while this morning 128. Is that normal? Anyone can explain why the blood sugar level is higher in the morning? Isn't it supposed to be the other way around?
1096641 tn?1271710825 can cause a drastic rise in your blood sugar if you aren't careful. (They are converted to sugar after you eat them.) Other foods/drinks need care too (example; milk, fruit, fruit juice) can also cause blood sugar to rise (so serving sizes and moderation are important). With fruit it’s important to eat them with other foods to slow the absorption of fructose (fruit sugar). I'm NOT saying that these foods aren't allowed.
Avatar m tn These are all important in managing this illness, the most important, along with proper nutrition, is physical activity. The most common causes for high blood sugar are bad food choices, sugary liquids, and lack of physical exercise. During that same period, the circulatory system and nervous system is put under stress. Caffeine stimulates the production of stress hormones, which increases glucose production by the liver.
Avatar n tn To day morning, sugar was 9.1. I am in doubt that I took 25 unit of levimir last night. . Probably, there was not sufficient insulin. in the cartig However I took 13 units humalog before eating in the morning, sugar after 2 hours 9.6 (8am), at 10 am came to 7.4, I was shaking, but at 11 am it came up to 8.6 . Egg gives more sugar to me. I added one egg in my lunch, but sugar raised to 10.7, about 2 points than expected.
Avatar n tn The morning blood sugar is a fasting blood sugar and tells the doctor how your body reacts with out food. The body releases hormones (growth etc.), while the body is at rest. Most hormones are glucose based and can affect blood sugar that is why when women menstruate and children have growth spurts their blood sugars and insulin dosages need to be changed. I would suggest you ask your doctor what blood sugar range he would like you to be in and what you could do to be in better control.
Avatar m tn I had went to the emergency last week because of some other symptoms that I have been having. They did a blood work up and my blood sugar level was at a 57. I hadn't eaten anything all day and by the time they had released me I had taken a couple of sips of my daughters sprite and it went up to 98. So the said I was fine. Since then I have been very worried about this so I decided to get myself a meter so that I could test myself.
Avatar f tn Here is what I have noticed and I cannot find anything in my own research to help me interpret. For a few weeks my fasting blood sugar will be between 100-127. My spikes after meals will go over 200. It takes about four hours after a meal for me to return to my pre-meal state of 100-127. Then, suddenly, my fasting levels will be 56-72 each morning. No matter what I eat my blood sugar will remain under a hundred and then quickly drop back down to the 56-72 range.
Avatar n tn I've never been overweighth, not a drinker, all blood stuff (other than liver) in good shape. Blood sugar just real high. Went on daily insulin ( I called my HCV diabetes 'adding insulin to injury'. Started tx and continued the insulin. After about week 12 went to the endocrine guy who said that glucose level (AIC and other related) were all in normal range and to discontinue the insulin. At the same time the 12 wk pcr came as non-detect.
Avatar n tn It is unclear why the FDA banned Stevia in the first place. Is it politics from the Sugar industry as they have tried to ban Sucralose (Splenda)? I cold not locate any toxicology reports posted by the FDA. If it was a dangerous substance wouldn't there be a test report? I don't know. But, I too would like to hear from Stevia users, specifically diabetics.
Avatar n tn There is a different measuring system for blood sugar in the two countries, which led me to believe you were referring to another test, H1C which averages blood sugar over a period of a couple months. I'm sorry that I led you astray by saying you were over the line to be diagnosed. For fasting blood sugar the standards are: Under 100-non-diabetic, 100-125 pre-diabetes and 126+ diabetes. Since your number 6.9 is equivalent to 124 (multiply by 18) you are just under the line.
Avatar m tn So I should think the quick drop is normal. The question is how high is your fasting blood sugar and do you ever show symptoms of low-blood sugar. By the way, some people can control type II diabetes with diet alone. If while on your diet your blood sugar starts dropping too fast, see your doctor. He/She may want to reduce your medication.
Avatar f tn The fat and protein may extend the absorption and result in a lower blood sugar. You may also try (on a separate day), cooking the oatmeal in advance and then refridgerating it. Doing this is supposed to change the start into resistant starch (more slowly digestible). Then just warm it up (add cream and almonds before eating it). Also experiment with combining both of the above with a brisk walk immediately after eating. The exercise may be enough to prevent the spike.
Avatar n tn It is possible your Levemir dose is gone before you expect it to be, which is why your scores are now higher in the morning. Consult your endocrinologist about possibly changing the time that you take the Levemir, as that could change your scores. Mornings typically are high blood sugar times anyway, because of the simple acts of getting up and going, so if your long acting insulin isn't there to help you, that would certainly explain your scores. Good luck.
Avatar m tn Any sustained blood sugars over 140 are when complications begin. So if the blood sugar spikes up that high and comes right back down it isn't as bad as if it stays there for awhile, but it would be better not to get that high altogether. But it really doesn't make sense that your blood sugar would be that high right after eating. It usually takes awhile to reach its highest point which is why we are told to test at 2 hours (though some people hit their peak a bit sooner).
