Blood glucose levels for non diabetics

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose levels for non diabetics


Avatar m tn t always mean you will be urinating constantly or thirsty commonly people with high glucose levels have neither. A lot of diabetics will actually tell you they feel fine or even good or normal when their sugars are super high. The fact is that most times the glucose levels are tricking the brain respitors. . .(ie: being on a sugar high) Most diabetics only feel good when glucose is high because when they are coming down they are in fact going through sugar withdrawals. 2.
Avatar n tn the normal range is 70-110
Avatar m tn For diabetics it can go either way. Treatment can cause the blood sugar to go up or down. But if the diabetes is not under good control before starting treatment for Hep C, it lowers your chances of success. Adverse events are also more common on diabetics. I have NEVER seen diabetes go away after treatment. I have seen the blood sugar improve but diabetes disappear? Never.
Avatar n tn First thing you need have on hand is a home glucose test meter. The only way you're going to know how the foods you consumed affected your glucose [blood sugar] levels is by testing, testing, and more testing. Times to test are; fasting - first thing in morning b4 having any food or colored liquids [plain water is OK]. This will tell you how much stored sugar your liver is dumping during sleep hours. Normal levels are 60/70 - 99 mg/dl or 3.33/3.88 - 5.
Avatar n tn This depends on what kind of control the diabetic has on his or her glucose levels. If the person is tightly controlled and keeps glucose levels normal most of the time, the urine composition is going to be different from a non-controlled diabetic whose glucose is high or low as a general rule. Type 1 diabetes simply means that the pancreas doesn't function properly -- other effects on the body depend on how carefully that person keeps his or her glucose levels in the normal range.
Avatar f tn Normal fasting blood glucose for a non-diabetic person will be < 95, with ideal considered to be in the mid- to low 80s. One issue is that sometimes post meal numbers can be abnormally high, even while fasting appears normal or close to normal. So I would recommend that you request an hba1c, which is a test for average 3 month blood sugar. ideally that result will be 5.0 or less. You could alternatively buy a blood glucose meter and test your levels from time to time.
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.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the info and timely response.
Avatar m tn With lemon juice, t2 diabetics can digest food easier without risking elevated glucose levels or putting their glucose levels at risk. So go ahead and enjoy those lemons.
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 m tn Going to bed with higher than normal levels means 1/3 of your day is spent with high levels. Weight has a lot to do with t2 diabetes. Losing the extra poundage is known to help lower your levels. Also, avoid eating sugary foods and foods laden with carbohydrates.
798555 tn?1292787551 The local chain supp store did not have it, maybe the independent one will. Sound like its best to use this with a blood glucose meter. It time I ask my doc for one - sometimes they are free.
798555 tn?1292787551 With my fasting glucose at decent levels now, I would like to have a good complete glucose baseline for keeps sake. I have only tested fasting myself. What is the best method of testing glucose with a home meter before and after meals for a good baseline to compare in the future? Is there a chart online some ware that correlates to after meal glucose levels? Please enlighten me.
Avatar m tn Goodness!!! If her blood glucose levels are 25 to 30 recommending insulin to her would kill her!!!! That is extremely low. She said she is NOT diabetic. Insulin is used to treat HIGH blood sugar not LOW. She does need to see an endocrinologist though to see why she is experiencing severe fasting hypoglycemia in the absence of diabetes & insulin therapy.
Avatar n tn t eaten in a long time and glucose levels drop (which can happen to non-diabetics as well as to diabetics, but which can be life-threatening to the type 1 diabetic). So one of the dangers that type 1 people need to be on the lookout for is the danger of getting hypoglycemic and passing out from low glucose after drinking a lot.
Avatar f tn Not really. I have Type I and my glucose levels elevate if I don't eat. Her body is trying to send her sugar for energy (and food), so her levels are going to be up. Start having her eat low-sugar snacks every couple of hours, and try to eat 4-6 SMALL meals a day. In any case, a visit to the doctor can't hurt!
Avatar m tn My fasting levels range between 126 and 136 ( first thing in the morning ) and during the day they keep coming down 90 to 108. They get to around 90 after a long brisk walk. I have had a glucose tolerance test done and the fasting reading was 136 and after 2 hours it was 115. So, I am kinda a confused. I have a diabetic reading for fasting, but a normal non-diabetic reading for the 'after 2 hours. So, what's going on?
Avatar n tn The muscle exercise in the legs is extreme (and provides my heart the most benefit) but I find my blood glucose levels do not behave at all as they do when I exercise normall). I begin exercise with a BG level of 130-140, and end with one of 280 to 340 on a hard riding day. On a less strenuous day, I consume 16-20 ounces of O.J. and barely keep above 100. I will be modifying my routine with mid-ride blood checks from now on. Thank you, Yumin, for the observation and you, LRS, for the insight.
Avatar n tn Other companies have failed in efforts to market alternatives to needles for diabetics. In 2001, Cygnus Inc. won FDA approval for its GlucoWatch, a blood-sugar meter that could be worn like a wristwatch. But the device was eventually discontinued amid complaints it was not accurate and caused skin irritation in some users. Johnson & Johnson, which now reportedly owns the technology, did not return calls seeking comment. In addition, several companies, including Pfizer Inc.
Avatar n tn It sounds as if you have a glucometer since you said you have checked his glucose levels. Do you know what is considered "normal" in glucose readings? Glucose levels for non-diabetics and for diabetic people go up and down all day long. Most doctors don't consider glucose levels to be too low unless they drop below 70, but a person can start to feel a little bit bad if in the low 70's, so this might explain why your son didn't feel like eating when his sugar was at 73.
Avatar n tn For t2 diabetics, the best remedy to severe skin itch is to properly control and manage their glucose levels. Is the itching throughout the day or during sleep? If during sleep hours, he needs to check his glucose levels before bedtime and adjust his insulin – if he is on insulin – accordingly. If he is not on insulin, a visit to his doctor is in order. With medications and lotions, there are no solutions or cures, only temporary relief.
Avatar n tn Chromium appears to play a role in normal insulin function and glucose utilization, and some investigators have suggested that it increases insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance and decreases blood glucose levels in certain diabetics, possibly those with low chromium levels. However, others have not corroborated these findings, and a few have even reported a negative effect on glucose tolerance and blood levels.
Avatar n tn Foods with a high GI are metabolized into glucose very quickly and tend to spike blood sugars. These are difficult foods for Type 2s to deal with. Often, these foods also taste very sweet and anecdotally, I've heard many folks (diabetic or not) report that if they have a little bit of candy/cake/cookies/sweet veges, then they crave more. All those foods are high GI foods. GI is not the only factor to consider, of course.
