Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose monitoring diary


194838 tn?1303428544 Thankyou very much for the info, I am struggling a bit trying to control my blood glucose and hoping the Byetta my GP has recently started me on will help me.
194838 tn?1303428544 I do not test my own blood but am sent to the hospital for fairly regular tests but notice that when people post with their blood glucose levels they are in the 100s. I am from the UK and wonder if there is a conversion chart because I think it would be more beneficial if I could compare with others on the forum to get a sense of how im doing for comparison, Any advise would be greatly appreciated .
Avatar f tn I have been monitoring my blood sugars at home since at a doctor visit my fasting glucose was 135. Every morning in the past week I have taken it (on empty stomach) it has been in the 130's, only one time it was 114. All throughout the day it is between 129 and 158, sometimes it is 192, 263. I had blood drawn today for A1c, should get the results in a couple of days. I am wondering if these numbers are normal, or do I have a problem?
Avatar m tn I would like to buy some glucometer for continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). Do you have any personal experience with this type of monitoring? Can you recommend me any device? Thanks a lot.
Avatar f tn If you have poor release of insulin, then after exercise the blood glucose can rise. While exercising the brain gets a signal to increase blood glucose to meet the extra body demand. If this increased sugar is able to trigger an increased insulin response, the blood sugar gets lowered. Otherwise, it remains high. You should get GTT or glucose tolerance test, fasting blood sugar, post prandial sugar done and glycosyltaed hemoglobin measured to know whether you have diabetes or not.
Avatar n tn The first one gives some pros and cons to using it that are interesting -- apparently, it tests tissue glucose instead of blood glucose and can be inaccurate at times. Check out these two websites to find out more information about location of the device, how it is used and how it works:
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 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 Hi imtko, I'm a volunteer here and have been diabetic for 11 years. I've never used the continuous glucose monitoring system so I can't share any experiences with you. However, if you'd like to get more information about the product below are a couple of websites that could be helpful: Mimimed Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGMS) Take care.
Avatar n tn She is an athlete and in very good shape physically and not overweight. What I find most curious is her fasting glucose is in the 100-115 range but taken randomly throughout the day it is in the 80s for the most part. Is there cause for concern? She has been seen in recent months by an endocronologist as she was anemic when she first hit puberty with heavy periods but that now is under control.
Avatar n tn Hello Candikane, Your doctor's advice is surprising to me, also. I'm guessing that s/he is not a diabetes specialist and that's the type of physician who should be guiding your diabetes care. Specialists might be called endocrinologist or diabetologist. None of us here is a physician, but we're long-time diabetics or care-givers for diabetic children. You didn't mention if you've been diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2, and the treatment options vary for these types.
Avatar n tn I tested my blood sugar this morning and it was 105. Would you say this is out of the normal range. I had blood work done about a month ago when I had my annual physical and my sugar level came back at 109. My doctor didn't seem to alarmed.

Avatar m tn When I had my blood test for my physical recently, I had not slept more than a couple of hours for four nights straight (it happens every so often for a few days at at time) and my fasting glucose had spiked into the pre-diabetic range with a normal a1c. I asked my doctor if lack of sleep can raise FBG but she didn't really give me an answer. She didn't seem concerned since my a1c has not gone up at all and all of my other numbers (lipids, bp, etc.) are "beautiful.
Avatar f tn Without proper testing results one assumption is you experienced reactive hypoglycemia. Reactive hypoglycemia [or alimentary hypoglycemia] is low glucose [blood sugar] that occurs after a meal — usually one to three hours after eating. Try the following: • Eat several small meals and snacks throughout the day, no more than three hours apart. • Eat a well-balanced diet including lean and nonmeat sources of protein and high-fiber foods including whole grains, fruit and vegetables.
