Blood glucose normal levels canada

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose normal levels canada


Avatar n tn The really good news is that as low as your level is, you should be able to completely control your blood sugar levels by diet - simply eliminate some of the sweets and starches - assuming that you have some degree of self control. Unfortunately, this problem is one side effect of PCOS; my own blood work was done because of those repeatedly missed ovulations I mentioned on another thread. The doctor wanted to check this issue as well.
Avatar n tn 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 n tn 0 - 48 U/L Optimal Adult Reading: 24 In your case,SGPT levels are greater than SGOT. Alcohol is one of the most important offending agent for liver, but it typically causes a rise in SGOT which is more than SGPT (SGOT/SGPT ratio is more than 2).So in your case,alcohol is not the offending agent. Important causes for elevated SGPT are viral hepatitis B and C, fatty liver, certain hepatotoxic drugs, and autoimmune liver diseases.
541196 tn?1293556536 They ran a pregnancy test and I failed that one too. So they ran a blood test on my. That is when they suspected i had a tuomr. Normal levels for my age was around 25 and my levels came back at 48. So the next step was to do an MRI. And when that came back it showed a 3mm tumor. After that they tested me to see which kind of tumor it was. And of course it came out to be prolactinoma tumor.
Avatar f tn I just had my serotonin checked from a blood test. It says my serotonin levels are good. I have a lot of pretty bad depression and have suffered anxiety for the past almost 2 years. It doesn't make sense that I could be depressed but the seotonin levels are normal. Are these test accurate? I understand it's an expensive test. Did I just waste my money?
Avatar n tn Okay, have been hospitalized now for 4 days and on heavy intravenous to bring the old bp down to a normal level. Have put me on part time hours and a diet that is low in sodium. Feeling much better. Thanx to those who told me what to watch for - ending up having blurred vision and a really bad headache so decided to go to emerg. good thing I did. Had stress test on baby and apparently everything there is ok.
Avatar f tn Everything else came back 'normal' I am extremely frustrated and would just like to feel 'normal' if all my results are normal. I have done some research and it stated that if you have symptoms and are TSH of 2.0 or above you could be treated for subclinical hypothyroidism. Is there any truth to this? what can I tell my doctor? Any help interpreting these numbers would be of GREAT help!!!
Avatar n tn You might have noticed above I stated "If you live in the U.S. I'm going to assume that number is an A1C". You didn't respond to that. You now mention that you live in Canada and that this was a fasting blood sugar. That is entirely different, because 6.9 is equivalent to 124 which is, in fact "pre-diabetes" not diabetes. This is the reason you have to be very clear communicating if you seek information on an internet website!
Avatar m tn Today I got my Sugar levels tested but Fasting blood sugar is showing 105 where the range is 60 minimum to 110 max. PPBS and Glucose blood sugar GH1BC all are normal. Now i am worried as I am close to 110 in Fasting blood sugar ? how to reduce it further.......I do cardio for 30 minutes everyday with 10kms speed..5 kms per day...still fasting blood sugar is on the higher end but normal non- diabetic ! Please answer my question after reading the above details.
Avatar n tn That would also explain the use of an insulin drip over several days to gradually -- and MUCH more safely bring your blood sugar down to healthy levels. You're right that steroids can cause elevated blood sugars, as well. As JW pointed out, we're not physicians, and I also encourage you to record the timing and symptoms to discuss with your doctor.
Avatar m tn I am 64 and just took a Glucose Tolerance Test because my general blood test showed an elevated glucose level. On the GTT, my fasting glucose was 95. My two-hour glucose was 178. My doctor said we should do nothing right now, and he'll retest me in 6 months. But a friend whose daughter has diabetes and is very knowledgable, thought I should have the A1C test right now. Anyone have thoughts about this? Thanks!
Avatar n tn 121 mg/dl. Normal is normal fasting levels If you post back with postprandial test result be sure to include what foods were consumed as certain foods can/will elevate your blood sugar levels more than others. Random anytime testing is useless as they result in false/positive readings. Lastly, an A1c of 5.6% equates to an estimated daily glucose [blood sugar] average of 114 mg/dl, prediabetes.
1219499 tn?1410753330 A lot of women with pcos have an elevated testosterone level myself included - well I was reading an article the other day and it said that high testosterone levels have been linked to miscarriage. Well having had 7 (possibly 8 but it wasn't confirmed by blood) pregnancy losses myself I though mmm there might be some truth to that statement.
Avatar m tn In Canada, the glucose [blood sugar] measurement unit is mmol/l. The A1c in Canada and the US is measured in % [percentile]. An A1c of 6.5% equates to 7.77 mmol/l, diabetes. These are the glucose ranges: - Normal ranges are 3.33/3.88 to 5.5 mmol/l - Prediabetes 5.55 to 6.94 mmol/l - Diabetes 7 mmol/l and above You can purchase your own home glucose test meter from your local pharmacist or ask your doctor for one or where to obtain one.
903476 tn?1242240637 Ok I didn't know what forum to post this question in so I'm trying here because it is a Insulin problem. So Ok my insulin levels are 570 but my fasting glucose is perfectly normal. I've had this problem for quite some time now. When it was first found my levels were 130 thee doctors put me on the Metiformin for 2 years to level it out.
Avatar n tn Doesn't mean you don't have a problem with either of these things. In fact, everyone in my family is on medication for thyroid and each of us had to get tested on several occasions because our doctors were convinced we had thyroid issues, but the blood test wasn't reflecting it. The problem being that your levels fluctuate all the time and the slightest thing will render your test invalid. In fact, even fasting for an hour too long can alter your results.
Avatar f tn and cancer All human metabolism depends on glucose as an energy source. Tumors live on glucose the same as normal body organs and tissue. The idea that sugar feeds cancer is based on a misconception of how PET scans work because prior to a PET scan they make you quit eating all sugar and carbs so that when they inject you with radioactive glucose in areas where there are tumors or malignant activity happening the tagged glucose immediately lights up on the PET scans.
Avatar f tn A1c is a measure of blood sugar levels over a 2-3 month period and I notice that your blood glucose was 105. Those results could be affected by thyroid, but I'd guess that they are more closely related to insulin resistance. Your pancreas produces insulin, which regulates carbohydrate and fat metabolism. Insulin resistance is when your body produces enough insulin, but the body doesn't use it properly.
Avatar m tn It doesn't hurt to check it out. Also, I noticed you eat sugary snacks. That would definite aggravate your glucose levels. Check it out!
667829 tn?1297981723 For now I'm trying to get an excercise program of walking every day in place, staying on top of my bp (methyl dopa (aldomet) seems to be doing a good job of controlling it so far) and keeping my blood sugar levels in check, the reg excercise should help with that. I'm a little bummed that I don't seem to be getting any testing done (everyone on here seems to have had blood tests and u/s done or scheduled. I don't even get to see my ob until week 11 or something.
Avatar n tn Hello Worthy, You came to a good place to get some answers and I find a few questions embedded in your posting. I'm not a physician, but I have had diabetes for ~35 years. Often we diabetics will lose weight if our blood sugars are running consistently high. The reason is that, since the sugar is "swimming" in our blood and not nourishing our other cells (muscles, skin, organs), we urinate out lots of calories taht we consume.
Avatar f tn You didn't miss anything, He just says eating a normal meal that you would have and having blood drawn 1 hr later is more accurate. He thinks drinking tons of sugar is unrealistic and that we wouldn't normally do that. I don't know, in one way it makes sense. But I would like to get to the bottom of it. It worries me. I don't want my baby to have problem during delivery or right after. I'm hoping the u/s shows something Thanks for your input..
Avatar f tn Because of the extra insulin made by the baby's pancreas, newborns may have very low blood glucose levels at birth and are also at higher risk for breathing problems. Babies with excess insulin become children who are at risk for obesity and adults who are at risk for type 2 diabetes - See more at:
Avatar n tn My doc wanted to do the glucose test and I said no for financial reasons. I told her I was checking my blood sugar randomly and am keeping an eye on it, since I had the testing aupplies from last pregnancy. Mind you, I am a big woman and look like a "fat slob", but also am very active and have lots of muscle. So my doc assumes I have it again. I tested my blood sugar this morning after I ate two bagels with cream cheese and a glass of orange juice. Mostly all carbs right?
3060903 tn?1398568723 I notice the difference between the blood glucose measurements between Canada and the States, any ideas how to compare the two? Do you test your blood at home Brice?
1927233 tn?1326673987 11-29) UIBC - 33 NORMAL (normal 26-52) Iron Binding Capacity - 79.5 HIGH (normal 43.8-67.0) Iron Saturation - 0.58 HIGH (normal 0.21-0.42) Albumin - 38 NORMAL (normal 38-50) Everything else was within normal ranges except the above which was either borderline or in the case if iron, way high. I should mention I cook vegan (no meat, no dairy, no eggs) at home, and only eat meat (red meat or fish) when I eat out (which is pretty often).
Avatar n tn I continue to take the hormones, but my weight ballooned and I am double the weight I was four years ago. 18 months ago, I had some blood tests, and the doctor said everything was normal. I did not see the results until now, but wish I had done so because my thyroid was 5.1 and my glucose was 6.1 Now I have arthritis and diabetes.
Avatar f tn My big concerns here are with the creatinine and phosphorus, which are both extremely high. Normal (Canada uses mmol/l as you know) creatinine is 44-138, so 313 is 200% higher than the maximum range of normal. Phosphorus normal is 1.0 to 2.0, which makes Winifred's reading at 185 absolutely huge - can I just double check you aren't missing decimal point in that somewhere? I note you say it's within normal, so I'm hoping you meant to put 1.85. If the phosphorus is only 1.
Avatar n tn I have been a type 1 for 34 years and, after one three-month period where I had suffered from higher glucose than my usual tight control due to a horrible bout of flu that had me sick for two months, my eye doctor spotted a couple of tiny blood specks. With the glucose back to normal tight levels, those specks vanished completely in three months.
