Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose log book order


Avatar m tn That would be considered AFTER a meal, or postprandial, as WR stated. I think you're getting hung up on the fact that 2-3 hours AFTER one meal may be BEFORE the next meal. Only concentrate on one meal at a time. How often are you checking your blood sugar at home? Be sure to closely follow the instructions of your doc, don't just choose your own times. Also, be sure to keep a journal of your results. Most glucose meters come with a log book.
Avatar n tn It is an on-going battle between the two of us to get him to write down his sugar level and insulin when he checks. He is on a regimen of Lantus and Humalog and basically uses his own discretion when counting carbs and giving insulin. Does anyone have any suggestions on how we can better track his numbers, besides me following him around with a log book? He uses the Accu-Check Instant meter.
Avatar m tn Diabetes Solutions". You can log onto amazon .com to read reviews of this book. The rule is very SIMPLE: to stablize the blood sugar, I always try to LOWER my carb intake.Period, the other way around, to me, is dead wrong. The other half of my diabetic journey is that I am using a herb that I have discovered and developed so effective enough for me to steadily lower my blood glucose A1C to 5.6% , taken 12.28.11.
490398 tn?1319940717 This is NOT a fasting glucose. My dad is diabetic and he has all of the tools to test blood. He has regular diabetes not Type 2 but it usually skips a generation. I had blood taken at the doctor last week, again, not fasting, for other health problems and it came back at 169. My doc obviously wants to retest me when I've been fasting and get an A1c.
Avatar n tn I'm a novice when it comes to diabetes so I could use some help. I'm on 2.5mg of Glipizide and have been for about four years. My doctor discourages blood glucose testings -- says that's only necessary if I were on insulin. However, I will occasionally check my blood sugar -- maybe once or twice a month or if I'm not feeling well. I checked it on Sunday and found it was running somewhat high.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know where I can purchase a baby book for a girl???? The one where it has all her first moments and information leading up to her birth.
Avatar m tn Keep daily checks of the readings, keep a log book.
Avatar f tn Please read the book mentioned by tombcx. It gives you a sure way to control your blood sugars. It is the best tool I have ever found. Please make sure you get the 2011 edition, which is just released and contains much new information and advice compared to the 2007 edition. If you cannot get your A1C down with diet and exercise you may need to add a medication such as glucophage / metformin.
Avatar m tn s razor, that suggests the simplist explanation is often the correct one. Floaters are a hallmark of elevated blood glucose, which could cause all of your symptoms. So square one is to get an hba1c and to obtain a glucose meter and take your own readings. This does not mean that you don't have neurological issues. A screen for vitamin deficiencies is in order, as well as an endochonological consult. Hormonal abnormalities can cause these symptoms.
Avatar n tn What do I do if my fasting or before meal blood glucose is above 130? Do I eat something anyway, or wait until my blood glucose drops below 130, or perhaps below 110? Sometimes my before meal number is 145-185, but I still feel hungry (happens usually if I have eaten a carb heavy meal the night before... I'm trying to stop doing that). Should I exercise before meals in an effort to bring my before-meal blood sugar down enough for it to be OK to eat something?
1925135 tn?1323307656 Richard Bernstein or at least log on to read the reviews on his book. This book is arguably the most important book on diabetes 2. Good luck.

9470507 tn?1404220799 Hello All been feeling out of sorts, started seeing a new (better) doctor and per suggestions from others bought myself a glucose meter online to check my levels. Back on 6/5 in office blood tests showed non fasting Glucose levels at 56 (range 65-99), lab results from 6/26 Hemoglobin A1c 5.5 (range 4.8-5.6).
875426 tn?1325528416 "Is the reference range supposed to be below 60 to be considered low even for someone who has not been fasting, as my parent was not?" One is supposed to fall "between" the reference ranges, not below or above. Doesn't matter if the patient has been fasting or the test is random [excludes OGTT [oral glucose tolerance test]]. A doctor may perform random glucose 'blood' testing to see if glucose varies widely throughout the day. Healthy peeps do not.
1948564 tn?1324647050 If only we could all live that dream. I would suggest using a log book, you can get one from your doc or free from some meter companies. Write down your blood sugar before your meals, carbs you ate, if that is how you give yourself insulin, and your dosage. A carb is not a carb, and they are not all going to affect you the same. Also maybe the activity you had the day before, etc. If my son plays basketball the night before it affects him all the way in to the next day.
Avatar f tn They sent me home with a book of meal plans (great selections) a meter and strips and a log chart. I had to check my blood before eating in the morning, and then every 4 hours after that. I had to record all of my logs down. Hope things get better! Good luck hun!
Avatar n tn ) and if the urine if concentrated and had a fruity smell you might have high blood glucose and need to be checked for the previous responder said if the urine is brownish like coffee or tea it can accompany jaundice and signal liver may also have a urinary tract infection which may cause it to smell bad and look cloudy and/or milky...this usually comes with burning and/or pain during urination and bloody urine...
Avatar m tn Carbohydrates (carbs) raise BG exercise lowers BG (strenuous exercise can raise BG) insulin lowers BG use your meter to test those are your tools, keep a log book and you will see a pattern.
Avatar f tn Flash forward to now and frequent need to urinate, lethargy, fatigue and often weird reactions after eating such as pale color, shaky, anxious, etc. My blood glucose on many, many CBCs was always good yet something was off. Went and bought a BG monitor with the following results: Fasting BG: 95 one hour after a meal 122 two hours after a meal 118 Should add I am a 30 year old advid exerciser who eats well but has a past sugar addiction and am now worried I did myself in.
Avatar m tn If he did then became disoriented he injected to much insulin causing his blood glucose to drop below normal levels. You did the right thing by giving him food. If he didn't inject take it as a warning sign that he may be turning into a Hypoglycemic. Test his blood glucose now. Your husband may need to test more often throughout the day too. If he is feeling better now there is no need to go to ER. But again, I emphasize testing often.
Avatar n tn It may be a good idea for your boyfriend to wake up and test his glucose levels. If his sugar levels are too high or too low, a coppery odor may be present in his sweat, and this may be the root of the problem. If this be the case, he needs to correct the glucose problem, which is dangerous to his health. If this is the odor problem, normalizing his glucose levels will stop the odor.
Avatar m tn As every bodies body is different a sure fire method to understand how foods you consumed affect your glucose levels is to start a food log, an Excel spreadsheet notating what you eat, portion size and what your preprandial [b4 meal] and postprandial [2-3 hrs after meal] test levels are. Pay close attention to carb intake. It's a catch-22 for diabetics. Our bodies need carbs for energy but at the same time carbs raises glucose levels. This where portion size comes into play.
Avatar f tn Use your home meter to test your glucose levels. If you're having memory issues start a log - date/time/dose - so you have something to reference in the future.
