493068 tn?1224765315 d exercise caution in general about blood-to-blood contact, since cross- infection, whatever the cause, is a reality of life. Identification, diagnosis and treatment have only ever played catch-up to any disease. To think that the height of being cool little girls in my time was to become blood sisters, secretly pricking our fingers and diligently, so diligently, mixing our blood together.
Avatar m tn 5 on my HBA1C. The doctor tells me I have diabetes and must take precautions which will effect my lifestyle and intake of sugars. I would like to get a second opinion as I had a 6.5 on my HBA1C three months ago. Could I have diabetes? Is this a possible cause of my infection?
Avatar m tn I need to clarify my earlier post. Exercise does burn energy, and eventually exercise lowers blood glucose. When I mentioned "cardio level aerobic exercises" I meant this to be "rigorous" exercises. For example cardio aerobic, fast treadmill workouts, or even continuous pumping of weights. In a way, your liver "has a mind of its own" and continues to produce glucose while you exercise.
Avatar m tn However, intense exercise can have the opposite effect and actually increase your blood glucose levels. The body recognizes intense exercise as a stress and releases stress hormones that tells your body to increase available blood glucose to fuel your muscles. If your glucose levels exceed normal levels discuss with your doctor medication or medication adjustment.
Avatar m tn Now he avoid to eat sweets and spicy things. Now blood sugar is under control. Should he take the medicinies regular or can stop it.
Avatar n tn is there anything you can do at home when your blood glucose is too high to bring it back down?
Avatar m tn As long as he sticks to the treatment plan, eat the way he is suppose to and check his blood glucose regularly he should be able to lead a pretty normal life. Alot of people think that diabetes is like a death sentence, but I have been living with diabetes for a few years now and I have not gained any more complications than when I was first diagnosed. I eat regularly and following the advice of my diabetes educator with my meds and regular exercise I am doing great.
Avatar m tn It's good to see that you are trying to manage your glucose levels b4 they get out of control. An OGTT requires you to be sedentary 2 hours post test. Being active 1 hour post defeated your "homemade" test. See this link Q: "What can be the normal glucose level after 3-4 hours lunch or dinner time" A: Glucose peaks 2-3 hours after meals where the normal value is <180 mg/dl and the optimum is <140 mg/dl.
1773108 tn?1314158067 Staying active and taking regular exercise can also help with blood pressure problems. Exercise also helps control the body's weight and regulate cholesterol levels. This exercise does not need to be a grueling workout. Thirty minutes of exercise a day, even walking, will help to lower glucose levels. This is a start and hope he makes those lifestyle changes. Post back if you have further questions.
Avatar m tn They need to control their blood sugar with changes to diet and exercise and often medication. Do you take any medications for your blood glucose? If you do not understand what changes you need to make, you should speak to your doctor about what is recommended for you specifically. Your doctor may have a sample diet menu or be able to recommend a nutritionist to help you understand the proper diet.
Avatar f tn If you have poor release of insulin, then after exercise the blood glucose can rise. While exercising the brain gets a signal to increase blood glucose to meet the extra body demand. If this increased sugar is able to trigger an increased insulin response, the blood sugar gets lowered. Otherwise, it remains high. You should get GTT or glucose tolerance test, fasting blood sugar, post prandial sugar done and glycosyltaed hemoglobin measured to know whether you have diabetes or not.
Avatar f tn Hello Doctor, I was diagnosed with thyroiditis last year at age 57, but I'm not sure what kind. I started out hyper which my doctor treated with beta blockers to slow my heart rate. Then I went hypo, and I've been on 50 mcg of Synthroid for the past year. My last TSH was 2.98. My question is regarding blood glucose. My last fasting test was 127. I've always tested under 100. I'm fearful of developing diabetes. Is the synthroid causing my blood sugar to rise?
Avatar m tn Exercise causes the release of adrenaline in the body, and that causes your muscles to absorb the glucose from your blood stream without the need for insulin. The more exercise you get, the lower your scores, and the lower your insulin needs. Exercise also makes you feel better in general, and the better you feel, the less stress you have, and the lower your scores become as well.
Avatar m tn He did have chest pain before starting the exercise but it did not change as he finished the exercise His recent total cholesterol was 4.7 with triglyceride 4.4, HDL 1.0 and LDL 1.7. Fasting blood glucose was normal at 5.5. His TSH was elevated at 3.88. Full blood counts, EUCs and liver function tests were all normal.
Avatar n tn Exercise helps people with diabetes keep their blood sugar in good control and within a normal range. Glucose is used while exercising, which would lower the blood sugar level, not raise it. If you are predisposed to developing type 1 diabetes, no amount of exercise will change this. On the other hand, type 2 diabetes is linked with obesity, and exercise would definitely help with the prevention of that type.
Avatar f tn However, your body can also break down protein to make glucose, and obviously there is some glucose in your body because your blood sugar levels are stable. On your ketogenic diet your levels are totally normal. However, on this diet there is very little demand on your pancreas. if you increase your carbs, depending on the health of your pancreas, you may or may not have high blood sugar levels. So we cannot know if you are diabetic. You do not have diabetic numbers on this diet.
Avatar f tn Weight loss if you are overweight, and exercise are also very important for blood sugar control. At least 30 minutes of exercise once a day (or even better if you can make it longer or more than once a day), would help in controlling blood sugar.
Avatar n tn Exercise also helps lower blood sugar. Muscles need glucose in order to function, and the two things which deliver that glucose are insulin and adrenaline, and adrenaline is released during exercise. As for sleeping late, that shouldn't have any direct effect on blood sugars. Getting a good night's sleep can make you feel better overall, though, and that positive influence can improve your mood, which can actually lower you blood sugars after you wake up.
Avatar n tn Strenuous exercise can lower glucose levels for up to 2 days after the exercise, from what I have been told. Your body was probably using those carbs as fast as they were digesting after the treadmill workout. I notice that if my glucose levels are dropping quickly, I feel horrid, even before they reach the "abnormally low" numbers. Maybe you were just feeling the drop since it was happening quickly.
Avatar m tn An hour of afternoon exercise may lower glucose levels until the next morning, affecting the fasting blood sugar test. Exercise can also affect glucose levels by releasing adrenaline. This raises blood sugar temporarily. Physical exertion or other activities that cause excitement may increase fasting sugar levels if performed shortly before the test.
Avatar n tn My blood test was fine also, although I did not test for specific hormones and possible nutritional deficiencies. My fasting glucose levels were fine and my glucose levels after a test meal were fine also. What is a stress test? Could it be that all those things are due to being stressed out?
