Blood glucose levels mg dl

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose levels mg dl


Avatar m tn Hi, the American Diabetes Association recommends a post-meal glucose level less than 180 mg/dl and pre-meal plasma glucose of 90–130 mg/dl. Please note that the postmeal glucose level is taken two hours after the meal. You should also consistently check these levels as a single abnormal value doesn't mean diabetes. I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn a fasting plasma glucose of more than 105 mg/dl, a 1-hour glucose level of more than 190 mg/dl, a 2-hour glucose level of more than 165 mg/dl, or a 3-hour glucose level of more than 145 mg/dl.
Avatar n tn In general, if your blood sugar level is below 100 mg / dL after fasting for at least 8 to 10 hours, then your blood sugar is normal. Blood sugar levels are usually lowest before each meal.
Avatar f tn I worked in medical labs for years and it was quite typical to see glucose values over 100 when patients were given a glucose tolerance test. The normal values in our lab at that time were 80-120 mg/dL, but fasting glucose levels over 100 mg/dL typically resulted in follow-up testing for the patient. The section of the lab I worked (Clinical Chemistry) didn't do the HbA1c test. It might've been done in a different section or it may not have been available yet back then.
1538488 tn?1331483305 My fasting blood glucose is 110-125 mg/dl.hba1c is 7.96. My age is 57 years.After 2 hrs of b/f 165-190mg/dl. No medication.Glucose level slightly increase after exercise in the morning .What action is to be taken?
1096641 tn?1271707225 "Is my itchiness related to my blood sugar?" My answer is yes and no. Irregular blood glucose can cause itchiness. Liver damage can cause it too. I say this because of your Addiction Recovery profile, which I must congratulate you on for your road to recovery. When itchy does liquid [water or lotion] applied to the itchy area provide temporary relief? If yes, seek referral to a Gastroenterologist and get a either Contrasted CT Scan or a biopsy of the liver.
Avatar n tn ) Postprandial [2-3 hours after a meal] same as fasting 60/70 to 99 mg/dl. Usually 1 hour after eating blood sugars rarely exceed 140 mg/dl, and return to normal levels within 2-3 hours. If your test results during these time periods fall between 100 and 125 mg/dl you are considered prediabetic. Above 126 mg/dl is considered diabetes. As you can see having levels of "always 115 to 147" is not normal.
Avatar m tn One hour after eating a Subway sandwich (102 g of carbs), my glucose was 159 mg/dL, but two hours later it came down to 96 mg/dL. I try to eat healthy and lift weights 4 times a week. I'm a 28 yr old male at 5 ft 10 and weigh 195 lbs. Am I classified as pre-diabetic? Should I be concerned?
Avatar n tn Thanks for the info and timely response.
Avatar n tn There are several ways you can diagnose diabetes. Your level last night after one cup of soda is more representative of a random blood glucose. A random glucose of >200mg/dL with symptoms of diabetes is diagnostic of Type 2 Diabetes. Therefore, from that one measure, you do not have Type 2 Diabetes. However, your fasting sugar is within the pre-diabetic range. Are you pregnant? You posted in the gestation diabetes section which is diabetes within pregnancy. Hope that helps!
Avatar m tn Normal fasting 70-99 mg/dl (some labs and hospitals go as low as 60 mg/dl) Pre-Diabetes 100-125 mg/dl Postprandial [2-3 hours after meal] <180 mg/dl, some as low as <140 mg/dl Above 126 mg/dl is diabetes. Ask for an A1c test to see where your average blood glucose is at. See this link for an explanation "Would I just be in the pre-diabetic stage and not full-blown diabetes?
Avatar m tn It's good to see that you are trying to manage your glucose levels b4 they get out of control. An OGTT requires you to be sedentary 2 hours post test. Being active 1 hour post defeated your "homemade" test. See this link Q: "What can be the normal glucose level after 3-4 hours lunch or dinner time" A: Glucose peaks 2-3 hours after meals where the normal value is <180 mg/dl and the optimum is <140 mg/dl.
Avatar m tn Your A1c is a tad into prediabetes land where 5.3% and 5.4% equates to a daily glucose level of 105 mg/dl and 108 mg/dl. Try lowering your carb intake to help reduce your blood sugar levels. And BIG KUDOS for your exercise regimen.
Avatar f tn Your morning fasting [89 mg/dl] is within normal ranges of 60/70 to 99 mg/dl, yet your postprandial [2-3 hrs after meal] is often considered diabetic normal. Some doctors say this is normal while others contend that a normal person would return to normal fasting levels. Testing your glucose should be handled as such: OGTT [Oral Glucose Tolerance Test] - You will be given a sugary substance then tested at different intervals to see how well your body handles the excess sugar.
