Avatar m tn I am controlling my diabetes now for two months without medication. I set up an excel document and print it off , you can fit two months worth of info on one sheet, it's so easy to show the doctor trends, I include how many calories I've eaten per meal. It's really helped me. I've lost 30 llbs in two months and have stayed off of medication.
Avatar f tn They will give u diet restrictions & have u monitor and chart ur blood sugar levels every day.
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!
7757724 tn?1396279586 Sounds like elevated blood pressure or low blood glucose. Purchase a blood pressure machine and monitor it, also a glucose machine to rule out any complications such as preeclampsia. Or it could be something as simple as dehydration. Drink plenty of water and get rest!
Avatar f tn Hi Lexie! A couple of questions. What did the glucose test show? Did your blood test check electrolytes - an imbalance would cause palps, dizziness, headache, etc. It is easy to correct. If your heart echo and ekg were normal, that would rule out heart issues I would think. What about thyroid, was that checked? Try not to worry, so far everything is coming out fine...
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?
1272624 tn?1395434357 I used the monitor for 3 months before I started seeing the RE with no pregnancy. Then since we were doing fertility drugs, ultrasounds and HCG triggers to time ovulations I didn't bother. We took some time off from that and decided to go all natural again. The first month back using the fertility monitor I got my BFP. I would definitely recommend it because it takes out the guesswork of OPK.

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?
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.
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 our consultant has changed her plan of care four times she was on five injections a day and her readings were still all over the place. she was given a continuous blood glucose meter for four dayss, the canulla site got infected (staph aureus). when the results came back the diabetes team decided our home blood glucose meter wasn't working and we were given a new one (the results weren't matching a lot of the time, eg our home monitor was reading 2.
Avatar m tn The lancet holder and blood glucose monitor were being used on many patients. Neither device was disinfected before or after being used on me. What is the risk of Hep-B in this situation? The CDC says that holders/monitors should be disinfected between uses because blood can transfer from the holder/monitor during the test.
Avatar n tn I saw where LifeTrac finished beta Testing a glucose meter that doesn't use blood or isn't a continous meter like the GlucoWatch. Is this real or just some Internet Hoax? Life without pricking would be nice ....
Avatar n tn Any steroid will increase your blood sugars. Cortisone, a steroid is known to increase glucose levels even in those that are not diabetics. Are you on a sliding scale insulin? If so than you know how to adjust the dosage to accommodate for high glucose readings. If your levels are still high you need to contact a physician immediately. Any BS over 200 that does not respond to the protocol established by your physician requires immediate medical attention.
Tbd I just recently had a health screening and after fasting 12 hours my blood glucose was 111. Should i be overly concerned with that? Will they put me on meds or just monitor it. My history of blood glucose levels range over the last 4 years from 94 to the current 111.
180395 tn?1287493997 Once before breakfast and once before lunch. So I decided to buy a glucose monitor to check to see if maybe low blood sugar was the culprit. Well this morning before I bought it I came to work, had 2 donuts for breakfast (this isnt an everyday thing, someone just decided to be nice and bring some to work this morning) then I had 2 cups of coffee with creamer that contains sugar and on the way to work this morning I had a large cup of sweet tea.
Avatar f tn I just realized that I haven't seen my diabetes specialist in about three years. On my last visit she "discharged" me to the care of my internist. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 5 years ago, at age 62. My glucose levels are stable at around 110, hB!ac 5.9. I've recently lost 25 kg, do some mild exercise and feel good. I'm taking metformin twice a day (750 mg).
Avatar f tn Thanks for your replies. Wave: I'm not sure it was you who gave me the info on the HgbA1C. I recall someone else telling me about it. Yes, it's been requested. Labs need a Doctors order for it and my insurance won't pay until I've had three Fasting Blood Glucose Tests with elevated BC. In about a week it will be my third ( provided it's elevated, as my last wasn't ).
452066 tn?1400626877 I feel quite dumb asking these questions. 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...
