Blood glucose monitor results

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose monitor results


Avatar m tn About a year ago during routine blood work, my fasting glucose result was found to be 102. My doctor (an endocrinologist I see for my thyroid disorder) was concerned and ordered A1C and C-Peptide tests along with another fasting glucose test. All came back normal a few weeks later (A1C 5.1, fasting glucose 92). An additional fasting glucose test a few months later was normal at 94. Just a few days ago, I got another blood test and my fasting glucose was back up to 101.
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 m tn I have Diabetes 2 and starting to record my daily test results. I have searched for sources to record the results and have found PDF sheets to record manually and some software products also. I prefer using a software designed for recording glucose test results but don't want one that also requires recording all that I eat. I keep a very simple record of what I eat and don't need to spend extra time recording all the details.
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!
Avatar n tn However, I use the Accu-chek Advantage and am happy with it. I have compared its results to lab blood tests, and find that the results are very accurate. The Advantage does not use a drum dispenser, but uses the one-strip at a time system that allows the user to replace a strip quickly if a test goes wrong. You may want to check to see if your insurance company will cover this one if you do not wish to use the automatic dispenser system.
Avatar f tn I'm 5ft 1 and about 189lbs. I unfortunately, did not pass the glucose test so now I'm having to monitor my blood sugar 4 times a day. Fasting when I wake up, 2 hrs after each meal. It's a pain, however if my numbers continue to stay normal I'll just have to monitor. No pills or insulin. This has kept me in check with my carbohydrates intake. I am 17 weeks and have not gained any weight. Good luck and I hope you have better results!
Avatar n tn i was wondering if the pus at the canulla site would have affected the results from the continuous monitor and if it really was our home monitor that was wrong and not the continuous monitor? since the results her insulin carb ratio has been changed as has her levemir dose and i feel we have to start again from scratch. please help!
Avatar m tn Taking into account that for a week now, the patient has been taking Eltroxin Levothyroxine Sodium 25 microgram a day and has a Fasting Blood Glucose level of 139 mg/dl and Glucose after 2 hours of 188 mg/dl. Please help. Thank you a million.
Avatar f tn I failed my glucose screen too! I just got the results from my 3 hour test today. Whew....passed. My understanding is that quite a few people (up to 25%) fail the initial glucose tolerance screen but very few fail the 3 hour test. I'm sure you'll pass too! Sorry but btw the 3 hour test is horrible, just sitting and waiting and 4 blood collections. BOO!
Avatar m tn com/health/diabetes-and-exercise/DA00105 As Sally mentioned, it is best to monitor your blood glucose with a home test meter.This is the only way to know, besides being tested at the doctors office, your glucose levels. You can Google "when to test blood glucose" for recommendations, which is different than the above link.
Avatar n tn That is what was SPECIFICALLY written on my lab orders. (Insulin) I monitor my blood glucose at home daily, why would they make me come in and get blood drawn for something I do at home anyways? I just dont get your answer. I am asking for an A1c test so maybe I might get some true results. Any good advice will help because all this has me so confused.
Avatar f tn Did he give you a monitor to test your blood? He should have. I have diabetes and I've never heard of those kinds of numbers. Usually they test your A1c which averages your blood glucose from the last 3 months. I believe that number is supposed to be below 7 so you see those numbers don't make sense. I would go back and get answers and ask for a monitor. Good luck!
Avatar f tn I recently got a heart rate monitor and have been noticing some strange things. One being that when I really anxious bout some thing my heart rate go's down rather than up. I recently wore a 24 hour ECG monitor and I'm waiting for the results but was curious if anyone may have something to say regauding this strange issue.
Avatar n tn My only test in the recent past was a random blood glucose (lab, vein) which was 79 (and most likely somewhat falsely decreased due to the delay in lab analysis). So am waiting to get an appointment w/an endocrinolgoist or int. med doc (long wait here), so in mean time go the monitor. I decided to do my own fasting bloog glucose ansd GTT test, here is the procedure/results/abnormality which would really appreciate if someone with experience in the field could offer me some reassurance.
Avatar m tn 0, specific gravity 1.025,250 of glucose, which makes no sense with normal serum glucose and negative for ketones, blood, nitrite and leukocyte esterase. Urine hCG was negative as well" I just dont understand. Its looking like i have more than one thing working against me.
