Blood glucose levels of over 200

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose levels of over 200


Avatar f tn The oral glucose tolerance test is conducted by measuring blood glucose levels five times over a period of 3 hours. In a person without diabetes, the glucose levels in the blood rise following drinking the glucose drink, but then then fall quickly back to normal (because insulin is produced in response to the glucose, and the insulin has a normal effect of lowing blood glucose.
Avatar m tn Hello, I am very concerned about my blood glucose levels. I am diabetic and I haven't been keeping track of my blood glucose levels for years. For the last month or so, I had been feeling totally exhausted, falling asleep at the computer, several times I actually fell asleep with food in my mouth that I hadn't chewed. I was weak and out of breath and could barely walk without getting winded.
Avatar m tn Diabetes is diagnosed when fasting blood glucose levels are over 125. If fasting blood glucose levels are allowed to be over 250 or even 200, diabetes is very poorly controlled.
Avatar f tn The problem now is that she still does not have an appetite. Therefore her blood glucose is all over the place. I am very concerned. In the morning it is usually 70 or below today it was 50! How often should she test her blood glucose? And should she eat every 2 to 3 hours. Do you happen to know a website that might give me more information on how she should be eating to help manage her blood glucose? It seems like her levels skyrocket at around noon to about 200 or so.
Avatar m tn As the level of pain has increased over time, I am experiencing higher (200+mg/dl) blood sugar levels, measured with my glucometer. I initially thought it might be "comfort eating", but I have reduced my carbohydrate intake to approximately 100 grams/day and the high readings continue. I have tested my glucometer, and it is properly calibrated. My latest A1c was 704, so it is not time to panic, but I am concerned.
Avatar n tn My blood glucose was 95 after an overnight fast. I ate a bowl of Fiber One cereal for breakfast, and 70 minutes afterward my glucose was up to 146. Then three hours later it was 118. Is this prediabetic?
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 Hello! I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes. The normal blood glucose ranges for anyone, child or not are between 80 and 120. Some doctors will say 70-110, but it's all in the same range. Now, that's the target, but depending on what is eaten for example, a healthy person's blood glucose can rise temporarily up close to 200. As long as the values return to normal after a couple hours, all is well.
390388 tn?1279636213 Being diabetic and having lots of heart trouble and high blood pressure issues myself, I can tell you that a fasting glucose reading of 200 would get my attention in a New York minute. Your arteries are becoming inflamed at that reading and you will start to experience high blood pressure as well as be at risk for blood clots in your heart arteries.
Avatar n tn In a normal Non Diabetic person, what is the highest (peak ) Glucose levels that are usually attained. If the Peak is below 200 is this considered normal? or is it much lower?
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 f tn etc After 2 weeks on a strict diet, nothing. My glucose is still like 190-200, when testing. Also, I have cut way down on calories as well. I am taking 500mg of metform, and glipizide (new). One typical day: Breakfast: 1 scrambled egg, 1 pc of bacon, 12 oz unsweet Iced tea. Lunch: Beef broth with veggies (carrots, celery, onions), 1 bottle of water. Dinner: 1/2 chicken breast, 1 cup of fried cauliflower rice with veggies (peas, carrots, onion), 12 oz unsweet iced tea.
Avatar n tn She has all along been having some degree of control over the blood glucose levels. Since 2005, she has been taking Duotrol 1/2-0-1/2,& Pioglit15 1-0-0 . But the doctor, seeing her wieght (68kgs) asked her to discontinue Pioglit. Now, since last Sunday(21st of September), we have noticed that the Blood glucose levels have gone past 200.(250,231,222 are the last 3 readings for her Fasting levels,281,274 and 250 the reading for Postprandial) .
Avatar n tn Your little one was probably crying so hard when his glucose levels were low because he felt bad... when glucose levels drop below about 70, we feel pretty awful. The high reading over 200 certainly is way above where the normal level should be, so I agree that he should be checked by a pediatrician. Even if tests come back normal, I would recommend that he be tested often after this, for many type 1 diabetics start out with hypoglycemic episodes before full-fledged diabetes strikes.
1192309 tn?1264801232 Something I found out about other non-diabetic medicines, colds, and other medications is that they can help increase blood glucose levels. When i was diagnosed and got my initial readings down to around 120-130 I got a severe cold/flu for about 6-8 weeks. All the while I was taking my normal over the counter meds and a few prescribed ones. What my doctor didn't tell me was that these meds can increase the readings quite a bit depending upon the medicine and the person.
Avatar n tn There are several tests that they can do that are simple that can tell if you are have high blood sugars or if you are diabetic. The ranges of acceptable blood sugars usually depend on your age and sometimes build.
Avatar n tn There's a post by Gus who asked the same question yesterday. Diabetes medicine Metformin helps to produce insulin in the gut to "help" lower your glucose levels. It doesn't perform miracles nor does it lower your glucose levels by itself. The key word is "help." Lifestyle change is required. This is done by controlling your glucose levels with proper nutrition, moderate exercise, and weight control. Read my posts in the threads from Darkestlight and Gus on this forum.
Avatar m tn He has seen people with A1c levels of 6.5+ with normal glucose tolerance test, but not the other way around. My fructosamine levels are within normal range too. Needless to say, I am very depressed right now. Would love to hear any feedback.
Avatar f tn 89 10 mmol/l) from 30 minutes to 1 hour after administration of the oral glucose dose, and should then return to fasting levels of 140 mg/dl (7.78 mmol/l) or less within a 2- to 3-hour period." thank you for your help!
Avatar n tn I would recommend that you stick with the diet, but that you become very attuned to when you need a small snack to bring up glucose levels until your body stops over-producing insulin. A VERY SMALL amount of juice (absolutely no more than 1/2 cup) will bring your glucose levels back up within a few minutes, and then some protein such as nuts will keep you stable.
Avatar n tn Just out of wondering I took her blood sugar after 2 sips of half water/half juice and 2 pieces of old fashioned stick candy and it was 168 about 1 hour later. I don't know that this is out of the ordinary. Probably normal, but was just reading some others to find out. She is 41 pounds and normal height for her age. I teach a classroom of 5 year olds and church and she is right in there with all of them in size but less in weight. Just wondering here also....
Avatar n tn I have found over the last several weeks that my glucose levels rise after exercise in the AM (I workout before eating), usually as much as 30-40 points (from 103 to 145 for instance). In the afternoon, my glucose levels usually fall between 20 - 25 points. Any ideas about what's going on? I do have an appointment with my doc in a couple of weeks and will talk with him, too, but I thought I'd try you out. Thanks!
1498292 tn?1289162172 Go to this site and you will get all the answers you need about Diabetes. Any blood sugar over 200+ daily is not good.. Normal is 80-120 and a Diabetic should always be around 140 2 hrs after a meal. The site is I hope this helps and feel free to write anytime.It will take a while for her sugars to come to normal if she was just newly diagnosed..Stay away from sugar, white bread, white pasta, high carbs etc..
Avatar f tn Hi, my husband 42 and truck driver. His glucose level has been over 200 for the last 5 years. He is taking 2000 mg of metformin, and 20 glipozide. It is not working. He has to be under 200 in order to drive, so he has really been eating correctly this week and checking and checking maybe double dosing medications. His level bounces up and down 50 points within 10 minutes of the last checking. Is it normal to go up and down so rapidly?
Avatar f tn Yes a post meal over 200 is diabetic. if your fasting was over 200 you should be on insulin. The OGTT test 40 at 1 hour is low and no for most people 40 will not make you comatose Ive been at 35 and functioning. But 40 sound like you have Reactive Hypoglycemia. your pancreas over shoots making insulin and your BG goes too low. As I said if your meter is accurate and your fingers clean 200 is not a good number nor is 40 so id say you got something going on.
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.
