Blood fasting glucose level normal

Common Questions and Answers about Blood fasting glucose level normal


Avatar m tn Hi, I want to ask about my blood test. I had fasting glucose 98 (normal is 74-100) and hba1c 4.8. Is this what i should be worried about? Is such high level of glucose can develop organs damages?
Avatar f tn Hi, like 6 weeks ago i had a blood test and my fasting glucose was 118.8 mg/dl 2 weeks later fasting was 115.2 mg/dl. Now 2 weeks ago it was 126.54 mg/dl. (and i am on diet for more then a year and also take medicine). Could these results mean that i developed diabetes?
Avatar n tn You are asking if coming off of replacement hormones can give an artificial drop in her glucose level. Honestly a random glucose level is affected by steroid hormones in general but should be still in normal range regardless. So if you are on corticosteroids rather than female hormones this will raise your level if you are unable to make the appropriate insulin response. In your child I would not worry about this. It does not change things.
Avatar f tn I would recommend recording your blood sugar levels fasting, and 1 hour after you eat and speaking about it with your doctor. The fasting level that you mention in your question is elevated. You want to speak with your doctor soon, so that you can get your sugars regulated either by diet and exercise or medications if that is what is recommended. It also might be helpful to keep a food journal until you see your doctor.
Avatar n tn 4.5 to 5.3%). My fasting insulin and C-peptide are within normal ranges. A low-carbohydate diet (<100 grams/day) did not help; increasing my activity level helped somewhat. I would describe myself as a very anxious person and, in the past year, would probably have satisfied the criteria for Generalized Anxiety Disorder, if I had chosen to seek medical help (doing a bit better now, thanks). Both FBG and HbA1c appear to test higher when my anxiety level is higher.
Avatar m tn Your fasting glucose is totally normal. What did you eat? If you ate a high carb meal, then your 1 and 2 hour results are quite normal. If you ate a low carb meal, then your results might be considered slightly high. Anyway, if you are concerned about diabetes, the best way to prevent it is by eliminating sugars and processed foods, and reducing carbs overall. You are not diabetic considering these reported levels.
Avatar n tn These levels are considered to be risk factors for type 2 diabetes and its complications. Diabetes is typically diagnosed when fasting blood glucose levels are 126 mg/dl or higher. Note: mg/dL = milligrams per deciliter" Weight control and diet play a large, large part in controlling diabetes. For reading on diabetes control go here http://tinyurl.
Avatar n tn Researchers have seen that people with higher than normal fasting blood glucose can go on to develop diabetes in the future. Your best approach would be to focus on being as active as possible. Walking, cycling, swimming, or jogging twice a day can be a sound approach as well as adding in some weight or resistance training if you can.
Avatar f tn I have a fasting blood glucose level of 101 and 102 for several years now and have been taking diovan hct and excedrin. I know these drugs have the ability to raise blood sugar readings. Should I be concerned about these readings? If I get off these drugs will my levels return to normal?
Avatar n tn At that time I was complaining of constant thirst, frequent urination, and sometimes night sweats, and slow healing. 6 month follow-up (one year ago) the fasting glucose level was 113. A1C was 6.0 I have been modifiying diet, exercising frequently and have lost approx 10-12 lbs. (Most of this in the last 3 to 4 months) Follow up testing yesterday showed fasting glucose and 2 hour glucose at 93 and A1C level at 5.9. I don't have insulin values for you but if needed, could get them.
Avatar f tn How much does the prednisone raise or lower the glucose level? Sometimes I feel lightheaded and my glucose reading is low, like around 65, and sometimes I am shaky and the reading is high, around 215. How do I know where my "normal" is and when I should be concerned? Diabetes runs in my family - my brother and mother have it. I am so confused and can not get a straight answer from my doctors. Help me to understand this please.
Avatar n tn between 70-126 is the number range that many doctors use. But this is for fasting glucose levels only. After meals, it is normal for glucose levels to rise above this, and the numbers quoted as 'normal' vary, depending on which doctor you talk to. I have read that a number of about 140-150 is considered healthy for after-meal sugar levels.
Avatar f tn After 1 month of rebel he developed numbness in his right foot. Now he's worried again , and back to exercise and medication. His blood glucose level at the moment ranges from 120 to 180 during the day which i think is good..BUT my concern is about the morning fasting reading which is always around 145 and i know it shouldnt exceed 125. Why is the highest reading the fatsing one , when he had a light dinner the night before and obviously hasnt eaten all night ? Please help..
Avatar m tn The diabetes screening caught my attention. My glucose fasting result is 5.4mmol/L while the normal range is indicated as 3.9 to 5.5 mmol/L. I will consider it as borderline pre-diabetes with the above range. But I also found that there are many different ranges from different sources. Other say the normal range is 4.0 to 5.9 mmol/l while some other's is 3.9 to 6.1mmol/L. My question is that can the other normal ranges be applied in my case? Meaning that I can have 5.
Avatar n tn 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 There are different schools of thought. My two-cents worth is that initially, you should be testing very intensively. Later on, when you get a handle on your insulin utilization situation, you can test less often. The problem is that none of are very good at "guessing" our blood sugar levels.. (1) Fasting (or one definition anyway) is the level when you get up in the morning without eating all night. (2) Generally, two hours after every meal. (3) Before going to bed.
Avatar f tn micronutrient deficiencies, some infections, autoimmune disorders, connective tissue disorders etc could also present similarly. The fasting blood sugar level is high; however this could also result from physical/ systemic stress, medication side effect etc; and would require further investigation (repeat values/ GTT and c-peptide levels) for establishing a diagnosis. I would suggest discussing the situation in detail with his treating pediatrician. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar n tn Just got results from annual bloodwork. Glucose level was 270 and this was a fasting blood test. They told me it was high- How bad is it? My dr. was suspicious because I have lost weight and have a few other symptoms. So I am glad they tested, but do not have a follow up appt for another month. Any info is appreciated.
Avatar n tn My last four-five consecutive blood reports show abnormal increase in glucose levels. (each time the level is between (240-275) compare to normal level which is 150. my oncologist told me it might be the side effect of chemotherapy or since the blood test was taken after I ate lunch. But according to him, I don't have diebetes. I have No histroy of diebetes. My diet is completely diebetic - I don't eat any sugar. My carohydrate intake is limited. I am very confused.
910435 tn?1296752210 People with this type tend to rise in the morning with higher than normal blood glucose levels, and after eating may have a drop in blood glucose levels. I call it a reverse spin cycle [no pun intended]. A lot of doctors have not been made aware or just do not know how to treat LADA. Frequent testing before meals and after meals to see how foods affect your blood glucose is a must. Bad carbs and starches are bad guys so pay strict attention to the intake. Do you have a home glucose meter?
Avatar n tn Actually, pre-diabetes is a blood sugar >100. "Normal blood sugar levels are less than 100 mg/dl. Pre-diabetes blood sugar levels are between 100 mg/dl and 126 mg/dl. and Diabetes blood sugar levels are 126 mg/dl and above."
Avatar f tn I would recommend a OGTT (oral glucose tolerance test). My glucose was normal on fasting but abnormal two hours after drinking glucose. My fasting insulin was high and even higher two hours. (I would recommended insulin to be tested as well). In my case too much sugar in my diet lead to insulin resistance but hyperthyroidism caused impaired glucose tolerance.
Avatar m tn Mark, posting as iwilsmar, asked about his gradual yet progressively rising fasting blood glucose (FBG) level over a 10 year period of paleolithic LC eating. Always eating less than 30g carbohydrate per day. Initially on LC his blood glucose was 83mg/dl but it has crept up, year by year, until now his FBG is up to 115mg/dl. Post prandial values are normal. He wanted to know if he was developing diabetes.
3094000 tn?1341802987 I've been at this level for a number of years. In the past two weeks, my sugars have been on the lower side of normal. One morning, my fasting blood sugar was 55. Tonight three hours after a meal, it was just 91. Should I be concerned?
Avatar m tn Hello, I have a question. I've been told the normal blood glucose level is normal between 70 and 105. Mine was 103 just recently. I told the doctor I feel it is a little high, they said no, it is within normal level don't level, even though it is close to the end of the scale it doesn't matter. I was surprised he said that. I fasted for about 11 hours. I am 32, do not smoke, social drinker, mostly red wine, do not get a whole lot of exereice, but do get some, and have a sweet tooth.
Avatar n tn Too often, we don't prioritize our lifestyle choices until after we are ill, and this slight rise in fasting glucose may be a wonderful warning to you. At this point, your fasting glucose at 102 is still very comfortably normal, but if it continues to rise (normal ranges from somewhere near 70-126 according to most doctors), then you could eventually become a type 2 diabetic. This rise could have been due to a dinner the night before that was heavy in carbohydrates, so it may mean nothing.
