Common Questions and Answers about Ada fasting blood glucose goal


1154802 tn?1266485720 What is the normal range for blood glucose fasting, 1 hour after eating and 2 hours after eating? I think mine might be a bit high...
Avatar m tn The ADA and the AACE always differ in their interpretation of what is a normal level for the fasting blood glucose. It is constantly being revised downwards and I think that it is getting ridiculously low! The level of 6 as an A1C used to be considered normal and OK. Then it went to <6 and now there is talk of making it <5. Absurd!
Avatar f tn I have had Impaired Fasting Glucose levels for at least 5 years, which I have not been actively trying to address until recently. A fasting glucose of 123, and glyco reading (from tests I requested. I know the 3-mo average glyco test is normally to monitor diabetic control, but my doctor 5 years ago used them also as a diagnostic tool. This made sense to me so I have continued her practice.) of 6.3 shook me out of my complacency in Oct 2009.
Avatar f tn The last check-up I had last year showed fasting blood sugar was still normal with a score of 90. 99 was the upper limit of normal on the reference range. This was 10 points higher than it was two years ago. Is it too soon to request glucose tolerance testing? My mother is a type 2 diabetic, two of her sisters were as well and died of diabetic complications. One had an amputation as did a brother of my father who was diabetic. I also have Hashimoto's thyroid disease.
Avatar n tn I apologize if this was insufficient information. However, between 4.0 to 5.0 mmo/l fasting is your goal. There are too many unknowns to make a determined guess as to whether your glucose will increase or decrease because lifestyle is a major contributing factor. To answer your latest question "whether the level will increase or decrease from random(non fasting", the answer is yes, increases after meals. See this link for a full explanation on diabetes. http://www.diabetes.
Avatar m tn There are continuous glucose monitoring studies in people with no signs of diabetes. There people showing fasting blood glucose typically in the low 80s Anne with very little variance even when they eat. Blood glucose in children and during normal pregnancy is also lower.
Avatar m tn After re-reading your post, it makes TOTAL sense to me, that the ADA guidlines are too high. I am having a good day, because my fasting blood sugars were down to 126 this morning. First time in a long time. I am getting there, but working more towards 70-80.
Avatar f tn You may consider it bickering or whatever you wish to call it. I don't feel this discussion belongs behind closed doors and should be informative to readers on what's new and correct in determining their glucose test levels. Although the A1C test is an important tool, it can't replace daily self-testing of blood glucose. A1C tests don't measure your day-to-day control. Estimated Average Glucose (eAG) is a new way to understand how well you're managing your diabetes.
603046 tn?1279159413 Zoe, The Mayo Clinic as well as the American Diabetes Association (ADA) have revised what they feel are the "normal" glucose ranges, and at the same time dropped "prediabetes" from the vocabulary. Although Mayo derives their ranges for the ADA, they're not exactly the same. One has 70 mg/dl as the low, the other 80 mg/dl. Both have 130 mg/dl as the high for prandial (fasting). Both have postprandial as <180 mg/dl.
Avatar n tn The idea that sugary foods and drinks will raise your blood sugars above normal(in people without diabetes or other glucose abnormalities) is false, so it should not matter what your daughter ate or drank before you tested.The only thing to know is: was it fasting or sometime after eating or drinking something. The value that you got would not be considered diabetic IF after eating or drinking. If it was fasting, then there should be some follow up testing done.
752468 tn?1237560359 Hi...I am a member of the Breast Cancer Community and just found out that my husband's blood glucose level fasting is 250. He has had the symptoms of diabetis ...excessive thirst, weight loss...tingly feet, and I noticed very sticky spots of urine on the bathroom floor. We are not surprised that he has diabetis...runs in the family. My question is, where do we go first. He hasn't even talked to a doctor yet, but we want to get a jump on this.
Avatar f tn I have been monitoring my blood sugars at home since at a doctor visit my fasting glucose was 135. Every morning in the past week I have taken it (on empty stomach) it has been in the 130's, only one time it was 114. All throughout the day it is between 129 and 158, sometimes it is 192, 263. I had blood drawn today for A1c, should get the results in a couple of days. I am wondering if these numbers are normal, or do I have a problem?
Avatar f tn It would help us better understand your dad's health if you told us what diabetes medication(s) he's taking, how much, and when. You also don't tell us what his glucose readings are; fasting and after meals. Really high is pretty vague. After 10-12 hr fast, above 200 mg/dl bad, above 250-300 very bad, above 400 dangerous. His doctor can prescribe the proper medication to help lower his glucose levels. Go see him/her asap.
Avatar m tn 8 mmol/l is considered prediabetes but only by tiny wee bit. Considering 5.5 mmol/l is regarded as the top range for fasting glucose this is probably why your doctor said normal. For non-diabetics many doctors use 4.44 - 6.66 mmol/l as normal postprandial [after meal] ranges. It's quite simple to lower to your glucose with weight loss, daily exercise, and by reducing carbohydrate food intake.
Avatar m tn The A1c is instead a measure of glycated hemoglobin, which serves as a marker for average blood glucose levels over approximately previous 8 weeks, as this is the half life of red blood cells.
Avatar n tn My fasting glucose results (Glucose Plasma-Hexokinase), three in last three months have been in the range of 108-120 mg/dL (normal range 70 - 100). In my last test I also got the HbA1c checked, it is: High Performance Liquid Chromatography-HPCL = 5.5 % (normal range 4.27 -6.07) The question is that fasting glocose test is indicating high glucose level but HbA1c in reasonably below the max. value. Which one is to be relied upon? Shall I be concerned at these glucose levels? Thanks in advance.
Avatar m tn Since we have no mention of a home glucose test meter in your post my question to you is how do you know when your blood glucose is going down? And when? See this link on when to test your blood glucose before, during, and after a workout. As Sally mentioned, it is best to monitor your blood glucose with a home test meter.This is the only way to know, besides being tested at the doctors office, your glucose levels.
212161 tn?1599427282 Perhaps medical science will soon develop a better test than the A1c. The A1c in itself is not bullet proof. Blood glucose levels in the preceding 30 days contribute substantially more to the level of A1C than do blood glucose levels 90 to 120 days earlier.
Avatar n tn A fasting blood suger of 4.0 to 7.0 and two hours after meals of 5 to 10 are the numbers given me. If A!C is higher than 7% then the later range should be 5 to 8. These numbers are in mmol/L. To convert multiply by 18.
519736 tn?1253986826 recent fasting blood work showed insulin of 109 with normal glucose. what does this mean?
