Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose levels of diabetes mellitus


Avatar n tn Hello Candikane, Your doctor's advice is surprising to me, also. I'm guessing that s/he is not a diabetes specialist and that's the type of physician who should be guiding your diabetes care. Specialists might be called endocrinologist or diabetologist. None of us here is a physician, but we're long-time diabetics or care-givers for diabetic children. You didn't mention if you've been diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2, and the treatment options vary for these types.
Avatar f tn An HbA1c test does not directly measure the level of blood glucose, however, the result of the test is influenced by how high or low your blood glucose levels have tended to be over a period of 2 to 3 months. Indications of diabetes or prediabetes are given under the following conditions: Normal: Below 42 mmol/mol (6.0%) Prediabetes: 42 to 47 mmol/mol (6.0 to 6.4%) Diabetes: 48 mmol/mol (6.
Avatar f tn Hello, Glycosuria is nearly always caused by elevated blood glucose levels, most commonly due to untreated diabetes mellitus. Get your blood sugar levels and HbA1c levels done to confirm the diagnosis. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar m tn Aims (1) To assess the association of diabetes mellitus (DM) in HCV patients to the severity of hepatic fibrosis and to the response to antiviral treatment. (2) To assess the safety of pegylated interferon and ribavirin combination therapy (Peg IFN/RBV) in diabetic HCV patients. Methods HCV diabetics (n = 61) were identified. A 2:1 matching control group was used to identify independent factors of advanced fibrosis and treatment failure.
Avatar n tn When you were diagnosed, did they do a fasting blood glucose? To diagnose diabetes, your A1C has to be 6.5 or higher, or your fasting blood glucose (blood sugar) has to be equal to or greater than 126 mg/dl (7 mmol/l). This test has to be taken when you've fasted (not had anything to eat) for at least 8 hours. https://www.diabetes.
Avatar n tn Blood glucose levels of patients with chronic HCV infection were routinely assessed at all outpatient visits during and after treatment with pegylated-IFN-alpha (Peg-IFN-alpha) and ribavirin (Riba). RESULTS: Between December 2002 and October 2005, 189 non-diabetic patients were treated with Peg-IFN-alpha/Riba, of whom five developed type 1 DM (2.6%), three type 2 DM (1.6%) and one an indeterminate type of DM.

Sometime during the day your levels are not OK, or your meter is need of calibration and/or test strips are not within their expiration period.

Bad snacks add to the stored glucose which in turn gets dumped. Make sense?
Avatar f tn Glycosuria is the excretion of glucose into the urine. It is caused by elevated blood glucose levels, most commonly due to untreated diabetes mellitus. In nondiabetic persons, ketonuria may occur during acute illness or severe stress. If you have been in the convalescent phase of any acute illness then it can also cause raised ketones and high specific gravity. Hope that this information helps and hope that you will get better soon. Wishing you good health.
Avatar m tn That's very interesting but it's my doctor who said that blood sugar was related to low TSH levels. As of now my TSH is .02 but I have itching and it's driving me crazy. My doctor said T3 and T4 are normal. But I feel terrible like sometimes brain fog, cannot sleep except for 3-4 hours a day. I am urinating a lot more which could be my A1c number of 6.4. I am going tomorrow to talk to Nurse practitioner not my doctor cause he's busy.
Avatar m tn This forum deals mostly with type 2 diabetes, people who have high blood sugar levels [mellitus]. Diabetes insipidus is kidney related. For best answers, the forum to post on is Kidney Disease & Disorders.
Tbd This means that it is rapidly metabolized resulting in a rapid increase in blood glucose. This in turn leads to the rapid release of insulin which performs the role of "escorting" the glucose into your cells in order to produce ATP. Simply stated, ATP is what fuels our bodies. However, an individual with type 2 diabetes mellitus does not produce sufficient insulin or is not capable of utilizing endogenous insulin in order to facilitate the transport of glucose into the cells.
Avatar n tn Below is the FDA information released by Astra Zeneca regarding this very issue Patients with risk factors for diabetes mellitus (eg, obesity, family history of diabetes) who are starting treatment with atypical antipsychotics should undergo fasting blood glucose testing at the beginning of treatment. Any patient treated with atypical antipsychotics should be monitored for symptoms of hyperglycemia including polydipsia, polyuria, polyphagia, and weakness.
Avatar n tn Keeping your blood glucose in your target range can help prevent or delay the start of diabetes complications such as nerve, eye, kidney, and blood vessel damage. When you learned you had diabetes, you and your health care team worked out a diabetes care plan.

It does appear that some folks are more likely to have complications than others, and it is THOUGHT that there is a genetic reason for this.

Avatar f tn There are several forms of diabetes insipidus. Neurogenic or Central diabetes insipidus can be caused by pituitary tumors. The symptoms of Central DI are excessive urination and extreme thirst. It differs from diabetes mellitus it that glucose does not spill over into the urine. You don't mention in your question what medication you were taking. Commonly central DI is treated with desmopressin. Desmopressin works by limiting the amount of water passed in the urine.
Avatar m tn However one number is just one number and what would be better is to have an A1C done. This gives you an average of blood sugars for a period of about three months. I suggest talking with your doctor, getting an accurate diagnosis and then going from there. If you are determined to be pre-diabetic or to have type 2 diabetes then you can begin to determine a plan to manage your blood sugars. Type 2 diabetes is a manageable condition, but if you ignore it the consequences are quite serious.
Avatar n tn Blood glucose-lowering pills and insulin are medications used to lower the abnormally high blood glucose levels in patients with diabetes mellitus. Examples of blood glucose-lowering pills are glyburide (Micronase, Diabeta, and Glynase) and glipizide (Glucotrol). Other drugs that can cause hypoglycemia include alcohol, quinine (used in treating malaria), pentamidine (used in treating Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia infection in patients with AIDS), and Vacor (rat poison).
