Blood glucose log monitor

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose log monitor


Avatar f tn I've recently been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes and started testing my blood glucose at home with the One Touch Ultra 2 monitor. The test strips that I've been given are pre-coded, so I do not have to do anything to my monitor prior to testing, other than insert the strip.
Avatar n tn Did anyone here have any experience with the new mini med continous glucose system ? Do you guys think that it really works and is worth getting it ? I think the idea is great and would improve control greatly.
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 f tn A little background... at age 2 BG of 350+ put us in hospital for weekend. One more reading of 200. No meds, it normalized. Now she is 8 and says she wakes up feeling sick and dizzy. FBG are elevated. A1C is elevated, but not in diabetic range. After posting before about my daughters odd readings I started monitoring her BG closely. I wanted to arm myself with a week's log before seeing her pediatrician next week in hopes of getting referral to pediatric endocrinologist.
Avatar f tn For a week I was checking blood sugar with the monitor when I first woke up and before I ate, and two hours after breakfast, lunch and dinner. I was also given a diet of things I can and cannot have. I'm allowed 3 snacks and B, L, & D. I can't eat more than 30 carbs per meal. And I have to keep a log of the food I eat and fax over my logs with my food eaten and the blood glucose levels. Sometimes the GD can be controlled with diet.
Dog Definitely call your physician to let them know about the episode of hypoglycemia. Continue to monitor your blood glucose and keep a log. I would instruct my patients to avoid their diabetes medication if they are consistently having blood sugars <70. Also keep something sweet on hand in case you become hypoglycemic (small amount of cake frosting, a small candy, juice). Very Respectfully, Dr.
Avatar n tn He/she sounds like a quack. It is important to monitor your blood sugar (glucose) on a regular basis to understand how well you are controlling your diabetes. Your above 300 mg/dl readings are high and getting real close to a dangerous level where diabetes complications start to set in. I'll get back to when to test your glucose further down in this thread.
Avatar f tn my husband was 2yrs post liver transplant, that is the one reason why he is also now suffering from monitor blood sugar problem. my question now is about fluctition of his blood glucose, we have a kit monitoring it before and after meal, but there was time when we check it is high then after just a minute it drop down, we are really worried why is this happening? hoping that anyone could help!

Avatar f tn 5 hours after eating. He gave us a glucose monitor and he have been checking it regularly. Some times it gets about 110 and then other times it will spike. The highest its been so far is 269. I have no idea what this means. Im so new to all of this. Is this normal? I called the pedi and they told me to keep a log and call them in a few days. Does this sound like Juvenile diabetes?
Avatar f tn You should discuss this with his doctor. Does he monitor his blood glucose at home before taking the insulin? I have not heard of someone attacking when their BG is too low, but that does not mean it couldn't happen. He could have a reaction to the fast acting insulin? After he visits his doctor, please let us know how he is doing.
Avatar f tn Earlier, I was looking at his all his blood test results, and I was at lost. Which results should I monitor/pay attention from the blood test results? Also, below are the HBV DNA results for two blood tests that my dad had done at two different diagnostic labs -- one before he started taking Viread & one afterward...could someone help explain the results? I notice the first test has the actual virus count -- 4,510, 3.7, and 26,248 H (pls correct me if I'm wrong).
Avatar f tn half year post liver transplant, my question now is about his bood sugar, we are trying to monitor it , we have the kit and test sugar before and after meal, but there was time that in just a minute sugar rises and and sometimes went very low. is this normal for or the kit have a problem?
5536886 tn?1455827346 How did you choose which blood glucose monitor to use? Are there certain features that make one better then the other?
Avatar n tn When I wake up my blood sugars are in the mid 50s. After breakfast they hover around 76 or 82. They rarely ever go above 86 ever. Once a day they may hit 115 if I eat bread ..stay there briefly to go back down to the 70s. I am not on a specialty diet nor do I do keto. I usually eat a lot of fruit and seafood. Once average my glucose monitor tells me my daily averages are around 75. What do you think I have? Am I in a pre-diabetic state and my panaceas is just pumping out insulin?
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).
Avatar m tn I should add, the log may help identify a pattern or a food, or lack of, that triggers your reaction. Rapid weight loss including the type of diet [not mentioned] may be contributing factors.
Avatar f tn Is blood glucose reading of 139 ok two hours after eating? I've just begun self-testing and I've had three readings of 88 (afternoon, no food), 89 (morning before eating or drinking), and 139 (two hours after eating). My mother's family has Type I diabetes (8 out of 11 total) and my father developed Type II before he died. I'm concerned because I have very high "highs" and very low "lows" complete with blurred vision, shaking, anxiety, and constant urination.
304573 tn?1345577338 Anyone start having problems with their blood glucose levels...seems I am becoming hyperglycemic.....
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 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.
