Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose monitoring system


Avatar m tn When I Google searched 'continuous glucose monitoring system' I received a number of hits. I also do not know what is available in the Czech Republic so you will need to research that on your own. Perhaps another forum member may respond with a better answer.
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 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 m tn probably it means your immune system is not fighting hbv and if immune system works they must rise if you are infected not lower
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 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 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 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 I was thinking of getting a DEXCOM Continous Glucose Monitoring system. did anyone here use it or is using it. I would love opinions and if anyone knows if it is effective and accurate id love to find out.
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 n tn The second path is around the types of carbs you take while exercising. Glucose tablets are an excellent way to raise blood sugar quickly, because they are made of the most basic form of glucose, and it gets absorbed very quickly. But I know many people that do not like them. I met a marathon runner who works for Animas who was diagnosed when he was a kid. During marathons, he uses packets of honey (like what you'd get at a restaurant).
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 m tn Hello all, I have received the results of my blood work and all is well. I haven't gotten the blood work for the hep-c viral load yet but they did the Liver and kidney and a few other thing and they were normal, so it all comes down to the end of the month when I see the specialist.
Avatar f tn For starters, changing lifestyle habits can go a long way in controlling type 2 diabetes. In my eyes, it's a must do. If you decide not to change, diabetes becomes a progressive disease only getting worse over time ending with neurothapy and amptutation. You and only you can control and manage this disease. Here's how.
Avatar f tn Super_Sally has great advice. I would add that you can ask your doctor about an insulin pump and maybe a continuous glucose monitoring system. It's a system that tests your blood sugar every 5 minutes and alerts you when it goes outside of the perimeters you set. Then the you can have the insulin pump deliver enough insulin to bring it back down to what you need. A friend of mine has one. She has type 1 and her sugars were out of control, getting up to the 400's daily.
Avatar f tn Buy a glucose monitoring kit and check it your levels a few times a day and when you do feel like a low sugar attack is occuring measure your glucose level to see if indeed it is this that is happening. You need to get your GP to book you to have a test called a GTT (glucose tolerance test) This consists of going to hospital for a few hours, having a intital finger ***** test done to measure ur sugar level then if it is under 7.

Avatar n tn Glucose in the blood is called blood glucose, also known as blood sugar. As the blood glucose level rises after a meal, the pancreas releases insulin to help cells take in and use the glucose. When people are insulin resistant, their muscle, fat, and liver cells do not respond properly to insulin. As a result, their bodies need more insulin to help glucose enter cells. The pancreas tries to keep up with this increased demand for insulin by producing more.
