Common Questions and Answers about American diabetes association blood glucose journal


Avatar n tn Yours kept taking me to the main page. Using the ADA search button, I found the reference using key words "check glucose" which brought up a bunch of useful information. In fact it returned 750 hits. For those of you reading this, use key word(s) in the ADA site search button to retrieve information that are "not" seen on their main page and main page sub-listing categories. Its not the most intuitive of sites to navigate.
Avatar m tn Hi, the American Diabetes Association recommends a post-meal glucose level less than 180 mg/dl and pre-meal plasma glucose of 90–130 mg/dl. Please note that the postmeal glucose level is taken two hours after the meal. You should also consistently check these levels as a single abnormal value doesn't mean diabetes. I hope this helps.
Business man1 Go to the website of the American Diabetes Association; they have lots of information and you need it.
107693 tn?1252864443 My husband last was A1C 6.2 . My question is, why is that his blood glucose is high upon waking up. It is 130 than he has breakfast and works out. So about four hours later the blood glucose level are in the 80's.
Avatar m tn Either test can be used to diagnose pre-diabetes or diabetes. The American Diabetes Association recommends the FPG because it is easier, faster, and less expensive to perform. With the FPG test, a fasting blood glucose level between 100 and 125 mg/dl signals pre-diabetes. A person with a fasting blood glucose level of 126 mg/dl or higher has diabetes. In the OGTT test, a person's blood glucose level is measured after a fast and two hours after drinking a glucose-rich beverage.
Avatar f tn Please see your Doctor who can outline for you a program of diet, exercise and medication that the American Diabetes Association recommends. Diabetes can be controlled for a lifetime, if you are willing to abide by all the recommended treatments. The above note from caregive list otc meds not found to be effective to treat Diabetes.
Avatar f tn My obgyn office says I have gestational diabetes, even though my blood sugars (tested for a week because I refused the glucose test) are within range of non-diabetic pregnant women according to the American Diabetes Association. I don't shoot up and down either, my sugars are fairly steady. Has this happened to anyone else and what did you do?
Avatar f tn The following lab values are the American Diabetes Association practice guidelines for the diagnosis of diabetes: # A random plasma glucose value of 200 mg/dl (11.11 mmol/L) or more (in the presence of diabetes symptoms). # A plasma glucose value of 126 mg/dl (7 mmol/L) or more. # An oral glucose plasma glucose value of 200 mg/dl (11.11 mmol/L) or higher at 2 hours post-glucose load. taken from

Avatar n tn I think you need to get blood drawn to have an accurate test for your blood sugar reading. 197 sounds too high-but may not be accurate, since being a volunteer on the site, I have discovered if there is a residue like orange juice on your hands it could effect your glucose reading. Your range should be somewhere between 80-110.
Avatar m tn I would like to add by eating well-balanced meals in the correct amounts, along with moderate exercise (like walking) and weight control, you can keep your blood glucose level as close to normal (non-diabetes level) as possible. Follow this link for some good advice along with recipes from the American Diabetes Association. You don't have to pay someone to read this free information.
Avatar n tn Perhaps you should contact the American Diabetes Association,, to ask questions about type 2.
Avatar m tn Stress, can in fact, be a contributing factor to developing diabetes. The American Diabetes Association takes this stance on the topic and says that it can happen in two ways. First, when stressed, many do not adhere to proper eating habits. And second, stress hormones can directly alter glucose levels. In this way, managing stress is important regarding diabetes.https://www.diabetes.
Avatar n tn I am not aware of pain as a side effect of this drug, but you may want to go to the website for the American Diabetes Association and ask them if anyone there (they have a forum -- go to to find it) has had similar problems. This forum really specializes in type 1 diabetes rather than type 2, so our experience is pretty much nil with type 2 medications.
Avatar n tn t make sense for it to be OK for type 2 diabetics to have higher levels and have those higher levels be considered normal/acceptable. If they refer to web sites such as the ADA [American Diabetes Association] or the Canadian Diabetes Association web site did you know both are sponsored by major drug firms, and there are others including several major hospitals. The wolf is watching the sheep.
Avatar m tn Then why does the ADA say 6% is OK when AACE [American Association of Clinical Endocrinologist] state in their guidelines an A1c of <5.4% as normal? Reference: AACE Diabetes Care Plan Guidelines, Endocr Pract. 2011;17(Suppl 2) 7. As far as I know the ADA obtyains their info from AACE. Is the ADA behind in its updates?
Avatar f tn type II also here, with AC1 above 6.0. Exercise and proper diet will do wonders....if he ignores it and waits to address, then he could have a serious problem with Diabetes in his future.
Avatar f tn I am sure the doctor will get back to you, but you really have to make sure and show this to your child's doctor. I have learned that the blood sugars he is having are not normal and he needs to be seen tomorrow. He needs the follow up testing asap and needs an A1C test. This shows the average blood sugar over the last few months. It showed my daughter to have a glucose intolerance. Good Luck. Becky This is on the american diabetes association website.
Avatar m tn I have NEVER seen diabetes go away after treatment. I have seen the blood sugar improve but diabetes disappear? Never.

116881 tn?1189755823 I was diagnosed with pre diabetes when my yearly physical fasting blood glucose reading came out at 102. (Father has type II diabetes.) Anything over 100 for a fasting reading is considered pre-diabetic by my healthcare provider. Not sure if they're overly cautious or what. I would love to know more about what readings are appropriate for pre diabetics but everything I read about is for diabetics. Does anyone know of any good sources?
