Blood glucose fasting test result

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose fasting test result


975514 tn?1324997938 I recently had a blood test, which included a glucose test. I wasn't fasting. I ate a bowl of whole grain cereal at about 5AM. My test was a 10AM. My uncle has diabetes and my sister is hypoglycemic. I know I get sick if I have a shake from McDonalds, but that's about it. I get really tired and nauseated. I don't drink sugary beverages at all just because I am always watching my weight, but I wonder now how that would effect me?
Avatar n tn in blood glucose readings, does that mean my 79 random blood glucose test is A LOT higher than that? And if I WAS fasting for that exam (it was a few months ago, believe it might have been a morning appointment), what does that mean in terms of the false decrease? Does anyone have any realistic/substanial evidence/knowledge on this?
Avatar m tn The difference between a fasting glucose of 101 and 106 is probably negligible. Both of your values suggest that you have impaired fasting glucose (range 100 - 125). The measurement is the same in fasting and non fasting testing - the difference is in the reference range. A normal fasting glucose is < 100 and the current thinking seems to be that even a result in the mid to high 90s might suggest close monitoring.

Avatar f tn But now we have observe that his blood glucose drop down, so we reduced insulin into 0.5ml, and still his blood glucose drop into 118-140, now we are confused if he still needed the insulin or we have to totally stop it. Hope anyone can give us advised. thanks and more power!
Avatar f tn What is the normal range result for glucose challenge test with 75 grams glucose load (with fasting)? I has a test last April 9, 2012 and result is 81.19 mg/dl. Is this normal? Please help. Thanks much and God bless.
Avatar m tn 1, fasting glucose 92). An additional fasting glucose test a few months later was normal at 94. Just a few days ago, I got another blood test and my fasting glucose was back up to 101. So in the past year, my results have been 102, 92, 94, and 101. I am 34 years old, very athletic, and not overweight at all. I am concerned about diabetes because both my aunt and uncle on my mother's side had type 1 diabetes, though my mother did not. Should I be concerned about the latest 101 result?
Avatar n tn With the FPG(Fasting Plasma Glucose Test)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. That is from the American Diabetes website, So, I think your doctor is doing all the right things. Why don't you look at that site or the JDRF site.
Avatar n tn The most reliable result should be a fasting glucose done in the lab, with blood drawn from the veins, but not from capillaries in the fingers. It's not useful to just have finger picks randomly. If you have finger pick within 2 hrs after meal the result will be high even for normal people. 4 hr OGTT is not very reliable From what I've known, you can only say someone is diabetic if there is one of the following: 1. fasting plasma glucose >126 mg/dl 2.
Avatar m tn forget to go for test after breakfast .went 4 random test 2 hours after lunch.....the result is 104mg/dl... whats ur take???? pre diabetic ?? fyi father is diabetic...
Avatar f tn A lot of doctors are now just taking a blood sample for a test called A1C. The A1C test is a common blood test used to diagnose type 1 and type 2 diabetes and then to gauge how well you're managing your diabetes. The A1C test goes by many other names, including glycated hemoglobin, glycosylated hemoglobin, hemoglobin A1C and HbA1c. The A1C test result reflects your average blood sugar level for the past two to three months.
Avatar m tn The A1C is a blood test, It test your blood sugar average over several months, This is how the doctor can see how your sugar has been over a small period of time, it gives them more information than just a fasting.
Avatar n tn Recently I have been suffering from anxiety attacks and light headedness. Done a fasting blood sugar test and it seems I have high blood sugar levels. Than this be the result of my anxiety attacks This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/384507'>Mysteriously high fasting blood glucose</a>.

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 Hi recently my BP shooted to 140/90 during that course i was tested for CBC, Renal, Lipid and Sugar. All the counts of CBC, Renal and Lipid are absolutely normal. But my fasting blood sugar was 8.1 which is quite high. Before this test i used BP tablest for 4 days until the test is done. Later from the next day i was tested for Random blood sugar several times for 2 days always the readings are normal the highest shown is 5.2. My doctor not even commented on this.
10881528 tn?1423629432 You should not eat before. Only drink water. You are supposed to take the test while fasting.
Avatar m tn I have started using Fenugreek seeds in the morning and do get random tests done 2 Hours after eating the other day i did a full plasma Random glucose test the result was 116. Lets see if I can lower my levels from the original 128 Fasting. Will keep you posted. Btw I am travelling to my native land hence the delay in replying to your post. Thanks a Lot for all the help.
Avatar f tn I did a fasting blood glucose test and was told to fast for 12 to 14 hrs. I ate at around 8pm and got tested at almost 10:30 am, so you see i fasted for almost 15 hrs. My result was 4.67 mmol/L. Now, I am worried that it may be inaccurate since i fasted for more than 14 hrs, so it might be the rrason while i got a normal blood sugar. My question is, does it work that way? Does blood sugar lower when you dont eat? Pls help me, i am 21yo and the breadwinner of my family.
8924846 tn?1410572901 the first or if there is an unusual/concerning result. The 3 hour is a fasting test. No eating between 8 and 12 hours prior to drinking the drink and then they draw your blood at the first hour mark after you drink, then the second hour mark after, and finally the third hour mark after and look at the results together. It gives them a better, more measurable comparison of how your body is dealing with your blood sugar. At least, that's my understanding.
Avatar m tn Testosterone levels. This last blood test, my doctor decides to take a full blood test, so it had to be a fasting blood test . Everything seemed normal until he noticed my Glucose was up to 176. Turned out I screwed up with the fasting, since I took a protein shake the night before testing in the morning, as I had gone to the gym. So he decides to have me retake it again, thinking that the previous test was inaccurate.
Avatar f tn The A1c provides an insight on your past 2-3 month glucose levels. Red blood cells live on average 2-3 months. Excess glucose rides on new red blood cells, the A1c captures this and provides an estimated three month daily average. " If a result such as 5.8% translates into an "average daily" value of 120 mg/dL, how can 5.8% be considered normal?" An A1c of 5.8% equates to an eAG [estimated daily Average Glucose] of 120 mg/dl, key word is estimated.
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.
