968908 tn?1274871115 I sometimes check my glucose level just to keep an eye on it as i am also prone to having low sugar levels as well. Anyway my question to you all is this, i have just taken my glucose level and my reading is 9.9, i had a glass of orange juice an hour ago with a banana, took it as i started to break out in a sweat similar to that of a hypo but found it was fairly high, is this a normal reading?? I am fully aware that levels ideally should be within 4.0 to 6.0..... any ideas please.
Avatar f tn The glucose test is you drink a cup of this orange juice thats all sugar (Tasted like orange pop) and you sit there and wait for an hour and then they take your blood to test you for diabetes because it could potentially harm the baby if you have it
Avatar f tn For some people, Metformin can cause glucose [blood sugar] levels to drop too low [hypoglycemia]. This often times happens when Metformin is combined with other diabetes medications, and is more common in elderly folks or folks with internal organ issues. Low glucose also can happen when fasting before surgery or a blood test/s and after lengthy exercise. You should notify your doctor of your low glucose experiences ASAP. Ask your doctor how to adjust your Metformin dose if needed.

Avatar f tn They make you choose between orange and Hawaiian punch. I got the orange taste like an orange crush but flat. And they time you for an hour and when your hour is up they will draw your blood.
Avatar f tn and suddenly he was fainting, my parents thought it was because og low sugar levels so they gave him some orange juice. And then he couldn't walk, and started to make some sounds. What happened to him?
180395 tn?1287493997 " Are these levels normal?" First, I'm glad you posted for the chance of diabetes are greater when the parents have it. What you need to do today is change doctors and find one that will listen to you, offer advice, and not ignore your health. Unfortunately not all doctors follow their "hippocrates oath" and it appears yours is in this category. Ask your doctor to test your glucose (blood sugar) with an OGTT (oral fasting glucose and an A1c test.
Avatar f tn Give u a really sweet juice to drink have you wait a little then check you blood sugar to see if u have gestational diabetes.
Avatar f tn its almost like pure sugar lol it made my baby do flips. its really a liquid glucose supplement, i had orange flavor, kind of tasted like orange soda, without the carbonation. then i had to wait an hour, do another blood draw, then i had to wait another hour to do another blood draw. it flew by fast.
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 f tn Carotene is a lipochrome that normally adds yellow color to the skin. With elevated blood levels of carotene, the prominence of this yellowing is increased. Carotenemia may be particularly evident when the stratum corneum is thickened or when the subcutaneous fat is strongly represented. The condition of carotenemia is harmless, but it can lead to a mistaken diagnosis of jaundice. Awareness of carotenemia may avoid confusion with jaundice and unnecessary diagnostic studies.
Avatar n tn Nausea and dizziness can both be symptoms of low blood sugar, or, as the previous poster noted, high sugar levels. If your glucose levels are running too high, usually the person shows the typical symptoms of unusual thirst and fatigue. If low, dizziness, inability to concentrate, headaches, yawning for no reason, shaking hands, irritability or depression, sleepiness, or a dry mouth or eyes can be present.
Avatar f tn My next appointment is my glucose test. What should i expect? Is orange or fruit punch better? Did it make you sick?
2088051 tn?1334542007 Yes, as sally mentioned, by all means get a home glucose test meter and test, test, test to learn when your glucose drops below normal levels. Carbs are your worst enemy. After a high carbohydrate meal your blood sugar increases which forces your pancreas to produce more insulin. This in turn may cause a hypoglycemic episode. It's probably in your best interest to carry glucose tablets and/or hard candy to combat the lows. G-tablets can be purchased at most drug stores OTC.
Avatar n tn When you start feeling gross drink a glass of orange juice and it usually boost you up fast. Also peanut butter jelly sandwiches helped too for a quick fix.
Avatar f tn s breakfast with an orange juice and sugar straws lol I failed horribly and had to come back for the three hour test! I have a great dr now and she told me in advance so getting to the normal experience! I've taken this test with my 2nd and 3rd pregnancies already and I just found that both times it made me "crash" a few hours later.
10389360 tn?1410823968 You drink the juice....an hour later they draw your blood then they call with the results. They do it at 28 weeks.
Avatar m tn Today I ate a breakfast burrito and had orange juice. My blood glucose was 92 thirty minutes after eating. Sometimes it will fall in the 60 range. My fasting blood glucose level was around 80. It seems like my body overcompensates when I consume sugar. Do you think I have reactive hypoglycemia?
8727253 tn?1400194561 I had orange and it tasted like a super sweet flat orange pop.
Avatar f tn And I need to take 3 Hr test tomorrow not sure what will happen. I hope you pass your three hours one. I drank orange juice before my test.
Avatar n tn i would suggest drinking orange juice and eating some fruit or a protein bar to keep your levels up. but again, please followup with your doctor as the info i have may be inaccurate. let me know how it goes, good luck to you my dear!
Avatar n tn He may be suffering from what is known as hypoglycemic unawareness, which happens when a person has a number of lows so close together that the body can't really recover from one before another happens. It really is up to your son to take care of the problem, but he may not really be having warning symptoms when he drops low. The solution is to ask him to test more often, say every 2-3 hours, until he is able to go 2 weeks without any lows. That will help him recover his warning symptoms.
Avatar f tn Drink a big ole bottle of juice lol I thought that's how it's done for everybody and than they draw blood
Avatar f tn If it's the same one, I did not have to fast. I had to drink a juice and then they drew my blood an hour after.
Avatar n tn There's no need to open multiple threads on the same subject. Depending on your system speed, ISP speed, and MedHelp traffic it may take a few minutes before you see your post posted. In regards to "At 2am he was shaky,sweaty,and weak" these are signs of hypoglycemia, low blood sugar. You should call his doctor immediately as his dosage may need adjustment.
