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 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 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 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.
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 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. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/diabetes-and-exercise/DA00105 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.
519736 tn?1253986826 recent fasting blood work showed insulin of 109 with normal glucose. what does this mean?
Avatar f tn Hello. My husband was recently put on 15 mg. of Actos because his fasting blood sugar is around 110 and the hemaglobin AC1 test was 6.0..he has no symptoms of diabetes. Do you think he will develop full blown diabetes or do you think this is a preventive measure. He's very concerned about it.
Avatar f tn Hello, with fasting BS in the 150 range you are already diabetic. Do you have any idea how high you go 2 hours after eating? With a HA1C of 6.1 your average blood sugar is already in the close to 140. Normal HBA1C should be < 5.0. Fasting blood sugar should be < 99. 2 hour after eating should be <120 (but ideally back to fasting level). Average blood sugar = (HBA1c x 35.6)-77.3 To prevent diabetic complications it is really important to control blood sugar early and agressively.
Avatar m tn s monitor (Glucomen PC) and found that its 123. It was six months ago. I was not controlling sweets and other foods that contain glucose/sugar. I had tested in a clinic the next day and found that the result was 117. One month later i bought OneTouch Ultra Glucose meter. Though I have controlled a lot on my sugar intake, the sugar level always comes in between 100 and 120. Does eating sugar added food cause diabetes ?
490398 tn?1319940717 This is NOT a fasting glucose. My dad is diabetic and he has all of the tools to test blood. He has regular diabetes not Type 2 but it usually skips a generation. I had blood taken at the doctor last week, again, not fasting, for other health problems and it came back at 169. My doc obviously wants to retest me when I've been fasting and get an A1c.
709686 tn?1277432159 There are other causes of your symptoms and I hope you've mentioned them to your doctor. If you're concerned about your blood glucose levels, you can purchase a glucose monitor pretty cheaply at drug stores. I got one a few years ago for $10 at CVS. They usually come with 10 test strips and 10 lancets and instructions, which should be plenty to check your blood sugar throughout a couple of days. Extra test strips can be pricy.
Avatar n tn A fasting glucose test will give a fairly accurate reading of the amount of excess glucose floating around your blood streams. A measurement of 5.0 mmol/l is considered normal, not diabetic.
Avatar n tn In the event that you had a fasting blood glucose test, a dimension somewhere in the range of 70 and 100 mg/dL (3.9 and 5.6 mmol/L) is viewed as ordinary. In the event that you had an arbitrary blood glucose test, an ordinary outcome relies upon when you last ate. More often than not, the blood glucose level will be underneath 125 mg/dL (6.
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.
