Blood glucose level units

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose level units


Avatar m tn I am a little concerned over the elevated fasting glucose level, have they drawn an A1C? This will tell what the sugars have been doing for the last 3 months. As to the rest of the test, being I am not an RN or Lab tech, I really can not interpret the numbers.
Avatar m tn 0, specific gravity 1.025,250 of glucose, which makes no sense with normal serum glucose and negative for ketones, blood, nitrite and leukocyte esterase. Urine hCG was negative as well" I just dont understand. Its looking like i have more than one thing working against me.
Avatar n tn ve done finger/arm tests throughout the day and have not had anything remotely abnormal. I had a fasting blood sugar level of 93 first thing in the AM and all my levels after eating were 135 or below. Could the 191 have been error? Should I request to have the one hour test repeated first before I torture myself with the three hour test? Or should I just suck it up and do the test.
Avatar m tn To my surprise it was 264. I am on 25 units of Glargine, 10 mg glipazide, which I take before bedtime. Why would my level be so high?????
1111143 tn?1259092353 She told me to inject 20 units just before bed, increasing it by 2 units each night until my morning fasting level is 120 or below. I'm already up to 45 units, but my fasting level this morning was still over 300. How much is too much insulin? The pen only goes up to 60 units in one shot. It appears to me as if this insulin is having little to no effect on me. Any insight would be very appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Can you build a diabetes tracker to include sugar level, medication taken/units of insulin taken, blood pressure, date, time?
Avatar m tn The worry is that if her blood glucose levels are not as high as usual and you give her insulin without her having food in her to counter the insulins effect, she could succumb to hypoglycemia (low blood glucose level). forcing a little bit of canned food can help with her blood sugar levels (smearing a little on her paws where she will lick it off or onto the roof of her mouth) as can giving a little corn syrup orally. A visit to the vet is urgently needed however.
Avatar n tn (Generally in the morning after not consuming anything except small amounts of water for at least 8 hours). Ideally a fasting blood glucose would be under 100-110 (for most USA labs and the units/measurements they use, though individual labs sometimes use different standards), though the "official" diagnosis of diabetes comes about if the result is over 126. (and again, that is for FASTING for at least 8 hours).
Avatar n tn Then, you add 1 unit for each additional 15 carbs you eat at the meal. Also, if glucose is higher than 110 when you test your blood sugar, I am told to subtract the number 110 from the reading, divide this difference by 30 and add that number of units to the base dose for the mealtime humalog to bring the high reading down. Another formula I have heard subtracts 80 from the high glucose reading and then divides the number by 40.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have recently gone in for a routine Lab test and I found that my Blood Glucose level is 127. I have had a test 2 years back. but, now what I am concerned is it like that I have Diebetes? what should I do now. My urine analysis doesn't show any traces of glucose.I am obesse and I am working on controlling it.I am a Male and I am 30 years.I am a bit scared beacuse this is the first time Ihad a -ve results in the Lab test. can any one please advice.
Avatar n tn i am on the levenmir pen iam at 63 ml and have been increasing every 3 days by 3 ml to no avail my blood sugar keeps climbing i heard the magic number is less than 120 i have been on this for aprox 3 months started out with 10ml is this correct? should my glucose level be climbing instead of going down??
961466 tn?1247550382 This is called a correction shot and the correct dose (correction factor) needs to be figured out in order to know how many units will drop her blood sugar by how far. It is not a surprise that she is experiencing both highs and lows frequently if she is managing her diabetes this way. You might want to find out WHY she doesn't want to monitor her health. Is she thinking that if she ignores it, it will go away?
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 f tn Her test results indicated normal ALT levels, as well as normal kidney and blood count indicators. However, she had very low glucose level. Normal level, according to her vet, was about 60 units. Hers was 18. What could be the cause of this and are there any natural ways to supplement or aid her? Thanks.
487621 tn?1322609697 I got the results of my blood work today. I also got a copy of (2) blood work they did in the hospital, they took blood before I was admitted and then the next morning. 10/03/11 10/4/11 units ref. range TSH 2.59 5.35 H uIU/ml 0.35-5.00 T4 Free 1.0 ng/dL 0.7-1.
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 f tn I had to go to the emergency room again last month and again, they did blood work. My glucose level was only 88. I am just wondering if I should be looking into this. Could I be diabetic? They never said anything about the high level. I found out when I went to pick up my medical records from the hospital. Also, both visits were in the morning so I hadn't eaten anything since the night before. Thanks for any help you can give me.
Avatar m tn 00 P.M., 4 hours after I ate a light dinner. I took 12 units of lantus as usual around 10:00 P.M. and woke up at 4:00 A.M. feeling "crappy", checked my glucose and it had jumped up to 410. This has been a normal occurance since I started Lyrica. I do not want to increase my Novalog dosages as I have had a history of nocturnal-HYPOglycemia. I don't know if the Lyrica is exciting my liver into somehow releasing glucagon or if it is rendering my insulin ineffective.
Avatar n tn A 220 pound person who eats an 800 calorie meal starting with a 140 reading will require a different dose than a 100 pound female eating the same 800 calorie meal starting with a glucose reading of 220. Basically you need to know what your glucose level is before injecting, the number of calories (approximately) you intend to digest, and from your past history (testing yourself after eating with small doses) knowing how your body reacts to the Novalog.
Avatar f tn If you are having the one hour glucose test the normal after the drink is 140 and under The 3 hour test should be 180 and under after the 3 hours and if you want to know what your everyday fasting blood sugar level is 90 and under.
Avatar f tn Even though your fasting glucose on that particular test was 92, your A1c indicates that there are times that your blood sugar levels are much higher than normal. You should ask for a Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT). GTT is a series of glucose tests done at 1 hr intervals, over a period of 3-4 hours, after drinking a very sweet, syrupy liquid. You should, also, talk to your doctor about getting a blood testing meter and keep track of your levels for a while, just to see what's going on.
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?
