Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose levels juvenile


Avatar n tn Three hours before I run, I reduce my basal rate to .15 units/hour, and my blood glucose levels are usually the EXACT same when I am finished. My blood sugar is not high before starting either. It seems like the three hour mark is right when my BG starts to go up, but by starting my run at that time, it doesn't have time to go up very much. Having the pump connected to you can be a pain in the neck ,but they are totally worth it...seriously..especially for runners.
Avatar n tn The fact that you are currently able to keep your glucose levels in the normal range will protect you and your baby. It isn't the diagnosis of diabetes that causes any development problems or that grows large babies, but it is diabetes that is not WELL-CONTROLLED. There is a big difference between the two! Being diabetic does not automatically make your baby large. Having high glucose levels does that.
Avatar n tn s disease, which is when the immune system attacks the adrenal glands. In her case, this has made stabilizing her glucose levels more difficult since the hormones produced by the adrenal glands do affect blood sugar. In any event, the thyroid is OFTEN affected in diabetics, and most doctors check the thyroid levels every time they run lab tests to check on us.
Avatar n tn I am now on a pump but still have very erratic blood glucose control. I check my blood glucose 6-8 times per day and count carbs carefully. However I do not go 1 day without experiencing hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia.
Avatar n tn If I were you, I would go to a doctor and have him run the simple blood glucose test that would answer the question about diabetes. Most people do not experience complications such as neuropathy until long after diabetes is diagnosed, but on some occasions, I have known diabetic people whose first symptom was some complication such as neuropathy or loss of vision.
Avatar n tn Hypoglycemia means low blood sugar (glucose). The blood glucose levels in healthy individuals fluctuate depending greatly on the duration of fasting. The normal range is 70 to 120 mg/dl after an overnight (12 hours) fast. In healthy men, the blood glucose can drop to 55 mg/dl after 24 hours of fasting and to 48 mg/dl after 72 hours of fasting. In healthy women, glucose levels can be as low as 35 mg/dl after only 24 hours of fasting.
Avatar n tn My suggestion is like the above, see if they can check his blood sugar on a blood glucose meter at your doctor's office. I think it is painfree (but I have been doing it for 14 years) and alot easier than a blood draw. It is a simple finger poke and then putting that blood on a test strip. This will give the doctors more of an idea what they are dealing with and where to go from there.
Avatar n tn not nearly as much is written about male hormone levels since they are not as obvious as female hormonal level changes, but I know that some changes DO happen, and hormones do effect glucose levels. It is worth doing some research about.
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 Hypoglycemia occurs when a persons pancreas produces too much insulin and their blood sugar drops low enough to produce symptoms of a low blood sugar that may include shakiness, sweating or clammy feeling, or mental confusion. When this happens, glucose needs to be given to raise the blood sugar to a normal level. Healthy mid-meal snacks help stabilize blood sugars and usually can prevent severe hypoglycemic events.
452066 tn?1400626877 First of all, I am not a diabetic, but would like to learn more about it and blood sugar levels due to a severe arrhythmia problem I have(also have an implanted defibrillator) and I am tired of talking til I am blue in the face to doctors and I feel there may be a link to either my glucose levels or hormones. I have been seen by 2 endocrinologists and both said I am fine...BUT they have told me that my insulin production is very high but they won't do anything about it.

Avatar n tn You need to not only get the glucose levels in good control, but also give your body enough time to improve after acheiving good glucose levels. Test often to see what is happening with your glucose levels and watch your diet carefully. It sounds as if your diet and exercise and weight are all in your favor.
Avatar n tn I am a type 2 diabetic and recently lost my job and my health insurance, I have not been able to afford to get my medicines and my blood glucose levels have been horrible, I ran out of glucose strips about a month and a half ago and they were running in the high 300's and even into the 400's. Here lately I have been going to the bathroom ALOT and I'm sure my keytones are very high, because I have lost about 30 lbs. in the last 2 months.
Avatar n tn She may need to keep a closer eye on her blood sugars during pregnancy as the hormonal swings may influence blood glucose levels. A pregnancy alone is not dangerous for most diabetic females.
Avatar m tn What do we do when nothing explains the dizziness or seizure? She is also peeing 3 or 4 times as much as usual but her glucose levels have been fine. We are really worried. Thank you for your expertise!
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.
Avatar n tn Hello, A diet that includes fruits, vegetables, fiber-containing foods, and low-fat milk is advised. Consumption of foods with a low glucose levels appears to reduce postprandial glucose rise and improve glycemic control. Reduced calorie and nonnutritive sweeteners(better avoided in epileptics) are useful.
Avatar n tn First, I want to let you know that low or high glucose levels CAN affect emotions, and many parents of type 1 children notice and comment that their children are more irritable, hard to control, or emotional when glucose levels are not in good balance. The balance of chemicals in the body and brain do affect emotions. I have babysat toddlers with type 1 diabetes who would become rather wild and loud or would withdraw and seem depressed or sad when glucose levels were off-kilter.
