Blood glucose levels over 300

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose levels over 300


Avatar n tn I have been at or over 300 in my blood sugar levels for two weeks and my doctor is away. Should I go to the emergency room? When should I panic? What other steps can I take before my doctor gets back?
Avatar n tn Hi, if your a1c is 11.2 this means that your average blood sugars are over 300. This is terrible for your health and you are at risk for very serious complications along with stroke, heart attack, among others, in the very near future. Blindness, kidney failure, and wounds that won't heal are also high risk given your current levels. With your blood sugars this high you need to be taking insulin.
Avatar n tn More often than not exercise will lower blood glucose levels, but there are certain circumstances under which blood glucose levels can actually increase....... You are having fasting blood glucose levels of 110 before exercise... During strenuous exercise your muscles need more glucose so they send a signal for more energy which comes from the blood glucose or stored glycogen in your liver.

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!
Avatar n tn Blood sugar (glucose) level Alpha fetoprotein Echocardiogram to examine the heart's function Electrocardiogram (ECG) to look at the electrical activity of the heart Imaging tests such as CT scans, MRI, and ultrasound Liver function tests The condition may be confirmed and treated with a liver biopsy or phlebotomy, a procedure that removes blood to lower the amount of iron in the body.
999058 tn?1257567250 Her glucose when we got to the ER was in the 130's, which the doctor said was still a bit up there for a two year old who hadn't eaten in almost 4 hours. When they ran her full blood work and A1C, it all came back normal. Her levels were back down to normal; 98, and her A1C was 4. The doctor wants her pediatrician to do a glucose tolerance test tomorrow (today) and told us we need to keep an eye on this.
351317 tn?1204755471 Hi, I came across this thread researching Serotonin levels and how to measure them and how to raise them. I have very low levels as per a blood test. The serum blood test is, I believe, as mentioned, measured indirectly. The doctors and psychiatrists I've spoken with don't seem to have any answers to any of my questions, but it doesn't surprise me. They usually aren't the best at pharmacological issues.
Avatar n tn Guys, Any reading of SGOT and SGPT levels being higher than 40iU/L is said to be dangerous. If the same levels rise over 75, you are in the risk of being Critical of any liver disease. Remember, a liver inflammation may or may not be caused by a liver problem per-se, instead, it might be caused by some other inflammation in the body, and an enlarged liver might just be a symptom to it.
1900462 tn?1352778902 Why can't they just be merciful and let me either do the first test again-not take it at all and understand that it was the food- or let me take my blood sugar levels for a week and then determine that I am not diabetic. They told me that I either have to take the second test again or take my blood sugar four times a day for the rest of my pregnancy. So again I know patients have the right to refuse tests and stuff but can they refuse to see me anymore because I wont do the second test again?
Avatar m tn My blood pressure shot up at about 8 months post tx. Never had high blood pressure before. My glucose was up over 100. Never had that pretx. I have very high insulin levels and very low testosterone - again something new to post tx. Seems to me that these are all a product of an overstimulated immune system but the scary part is that it doesnt seem to get better over time but actually gets worse! I am now on three! medicines for my blood pressure - Altace, Norvasc and imipramine.
919239 tn?1269398258 Most people who are treated for depression have their testosterone, thyroid function, blood glucose, and vitamin / mineral levels checked before starting on anti-depressants. The vast majority of cases of depression are not caused by these things.
Avatar m tn Check if it can raise your blood sugar levels. Some high blood pressure medicine can raise the sugar levels. Know your body. It is the inly one you will have.
190885 tn?1333029491 like HCV) may cause impaired breakdown of glycogen, reducing the rate at which the liver releases glucose into the blood stream for the muscles and brain to metabolize as fuel (neither of these tissues store glucose to any degree and both need it as a primary fuel), hypoglycaemia (low blood glucose) may result, causing anxiety symptoms (aas result of the compensatory increase in adrenalin output) difficulty with concentration (because the brain is starved of glucose) and general lack of energy.
Avatar n tn Just a cold can raise your blood sugar levels, did you know that? Stress? Yep, raises blood sugar! Good luck on your learning about this disease, and learning to listen to your body.
Avatar n tn Hypoglycemia is the body's inability to properly regulate blood sugar levels, causing the level of sugar in the blood to be too low or to fall too rapidly. Blood sugar, in the form of glucose, is the basic fuel for all brain operation and physical activity, including muscular. If the available fuel is too inadequate, any marginal physical or mental system may start to shut down.
Avatar m tn I don't have ridiculously high glucose but my numbers are slightly messed up with the full blown Lyme. It seems not only does Lyme mimic some 300 other diseases, but sometimes it triggers other problems that unfortunately do not go away even when the Bb is finally gone.
Avatar n tn He has been a type 2 diabetic for approx. 20 years but for the last 6 months his levels have climbed to 260- over 300 some days. He is visiting the VA hospital and they seemed to think that this could be controled by more carbs in his diet. Finally this week with levels over 300 he fell, and has no strenght at all to walk, or even use his arms.
149675 tn?1416676733 like the others said there is a connection between blood sugar levels & hcv. my glucose level runs slighty above normal 110 (fasting normal 65-99). i also read somewhere about insulin resistance having a negative affect on tx.
Avatar n tn On the subject of Maltitol, I bought just one candy sweetened with Maltitol and measured my blood glucose level before I ate the candy and then measured my blood glucose level at half hour intervals. Man, that one candy pushed my blood glucose level way over the top. Further research revealed that Maltitol is about the same as maple syrup. Maltitol is derived from birch tree sap in the same way maple syrup is derived from maple trees. So I avoid Maltitol.
Avatar n tn Testing will include testing insulin levels, glucose levels, c-peptide and antibody tests. To help control blood sugars you also need to eat low carb, moderate protein, higher (healthy) fats diet. Paleo style or modified atkins are 2 ways of eating that follow lower carb eating. Exercise will also help, however, it is not recommended to exercise when levels are 300 - 400.
Avatar m tn I've been having a lot of headaches and dizziness and when they checked my urine they found sugar so they did a finger stick and it was 300. I had nothing to eat for over 12 hours. They took my blood pressure twice and it was high...148/97. I'm 33 and I did have pre-diabtes 10 years ago but controlled it with diet/exercise and I had no problems with my other two pregnancies (in 2007 and 2008).
1103360 tn?1258313199 5 But I'm guessing since you kept everything a secret; your evening glucose levels, the morning glucose levels, the name and max dose of your medication, how often you test and the results, the last time you had an A1c test and the results, and so on.
Avatar f tn One does not have to have all the symptoms. I had it - I did not have the moon face, the high blood pressure, the high glucose, the high cholesterol, etc. I know many people with it and we all present differently. I had a doc tell me oh for sure I had it and then retract after one test was off. In the end, I had it. It took me 12 years to get diagnosed. I had the cyclical pituitary form, so it took me a while as my tests were all over and as well, lab error did not help.
Avatar n tn I got back some routine blood tests and my ESR is 40 (normal 0-20), I have slightly raised WCC of 12.1 (with normal range 4.0-11), Neautrophils 8.4 0r 60% (normal given as 2.0 - 7), Rouleauc Formation +, Bic. 21, (normal 22-30), eGFR of 77 mL/min/1.73m^2, and borderline anemia...all iron studies - I measured at the lowest figure still within normal range. My glucose, cholesterol, LHD and other CBC levels were normal. What do the cluster of abnormal results indicate - or possibly indicate??
Avatar f tn Not sure where to start, but have been reading these helpful posts about TSH levels on the forum. My child has been admitted to the adolescent psych hospital for 3rd time, 1st time self admit, 2nd time had a 'plan' and told us, 3rd time- currently- my husband and I admitted them. This has been over the span of 1.5 years. Suffering from severe depression, diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder with psychotic symptoms, and anxiety.
210400 tn?1325384170 Being that I work at a small clinic I did a Urine test on myself which showed 100+ protein and 100 Glucose. I also normally run 107/60 for BP and was at 130/83. Of course the clinic wants me to come in…however, I’m at work until 8pm tonight and 8-8 tomorrow. Anyone go through anything similar? Thanks ladies!
Avatar n tn Increasing exercise and weight loss will improve the increased triglycerides and decreased HDL levels. Markedly increased sugar levels can cause some of the neurologic symptoms you describe. If you have diabetes, then appropriate treatment needs to be instituted. Your PCP should be able to do this. If you continue to have neurological symptoms, then a neurologist can be considered.
Avatar f tn NOT the blood magnesium levels, as there's a mechanism that controls the magnesium in the blood. Doctor's don't routinely check the tissue levels and that is why a phenomenal 75% + of the population is magnesium deficient!!! Magnesium is involved in over 300 processes in the body! For example, If you consume simple carbs and sugars, for each one molecule of glucose from them in your body, 56 molecules of magnesium are needed to properly metabolise the glucose.
Avatar m tn I Received a letter from my GP that requested I see him regarding my last Blood Test results. He was on Holiday so saw another. This Doc is into Life Extensions.
