Blood glucose normal range for diabetics

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose normal range for diabetics


Avatar n tn the normal range is 70-110
Avatar f tn The A1c provides an insight on your past 2-3 month glucose levels. Red blood cells live on average 2-3 months. Excess glucose rides on new red blood cells, the A1c captures this and provides an estimated three month daily average. " If a result such as 5.8% translates into an "average daily" value of 120 mg/dL, how can 5.8% be considered normal?" An A1c of 5.8% equates to an eAG [estimated daily Average Glucose] of 120 mg/dl, key word is estimated.
1154802 tn?1266485720 What is the normal range for blood glucose fasting, 1 hour after eating and 2 hours after eating? I think mine might be a bit high...
Avatar n tn Those of us who staff this site are not physicians, and so you may not be able to get the answers you seek on this website. Furthermore, this kind of information is going to depend on the individual. Just because a person is diabetic does not automatically mean his or her urine composition is going to be different from a non-diabetic person. This depends on what kind of control the diabetic has on his or her glucose levels.
Avatar m tn I have recently visited an endo because my fasting glucose was a bit high, 95 on the last blood work. Every other test was completely normal. After a complete blood/urine test, everything came back normal, including A1C of 4.8 My endo suggested that I can take the glucose tolerance test to be sure (he is very thorough). I even bought a glucose meter and tested myself for a week (2 hrs postmeal was around 120). I just got home, very depressed about my GTT results.
Avatar f tn Normal fasting blood glucose for a non-diabetic person will be < 95, with ideal considered to be in the mid- to low 80s. One issue is that sometimes post meal numbers can be abnormally high, even while fasting appears normal or close to normal. So I would recommend that you request an hba1c, which is a test for average 3 month blood sugar. ideally that result will be 5.0 or less. You could alternatively buy a blood glucose meter and test your levels from time to time.
Avatar n tn Chromium appears to play a role in normal insulin function and glucose utilization, and some investigators have suggested that it increases insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance and decreases blood glucose levels in certain diabetics, possibly those with low chromium levels. However, others have not corroborated these findings, and a few have even reported a negative effect on glucose tolerance and blood levels.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the info and timely response.
Avatar m tn My fasting levels range between 126 and 136 ( first thing in the morning ) and during the day they keep coming down 90 to 108. They get to around 90 after a long brisk walk. I have had a glucose tolerance test done and the fasting reading was 136 and after 2 hours it was 115. So, I am kinda a confused. I have a diabetic reading for fasting, but a normal non-diabetic reading for the 'after 2 hours. So, what's going on?
Avatar n tn Exercise helps people with diabetes keep their blood sugar in good control and within a normal range. Glucose is used while exercising, which would lower the blood sugar level, not raise it. If you are predisposed to developing type 1 diabetes, no amount of exercise will change this. On the other hand, type 2 diabetes is linked with obesity, and exercise would definitely help with the prevention of that type.
Avatar n tn Dear Andrew, 125 isn't so far out of range to be concerned. Many diabetics keep their blood sugars from 70 to 150. i wouldn't consider this to be anything to worry over, as it isn't going to do you any harm and is in the normal range. So count your blessings as i wish i could get mine to do that every time i had fasted.
Avatar m tn are between 70-126 (give or take a few numbers, for doctors differ slightly on the ideal range). People who are neither diabetic nor hypoglycemic do find it normal for gluocse values to vary throughought the day as the body responds to the foods you eat. Most diabetics start to feel bad when glucose is dropping and begins to approach the 70 mark, so numbers below that are considered hypoglycemic.
Avatar n tn If we diabetics are not well-trained on how to exercise, strenuously, while maintaining our blood sugar in a target range, we will be more likely to see rises in blood sugar. Exercise is an important component of maintaining our good health -- keeping our vascular system as clear as possible and keeping our muscles strong. Most exercise regimens require that the person get clearance from their physician to begin it.
798555 tn?1292787551 The local chain supp store did not have it, maybe the independent one will. Sound like its best to use this with a blood glucose meter. It time I ask my doc for one - sometimes they are free.
Avatar n tn It can take some time for you to feel OK as your body adjusts to new glucose levels as being normal again. So if you test and find that your glucose numbers are in the ideal range (70-126) before meals but still feel crummy, you may just have to wait for your body to adjust to being normal again.
Avatar n tn For a person that does not have diabetes readings should be in the normal range all of the time. Normal range varies from person to person but generally falls within the range of about 80-160 depending on the times and conditions leading up to the test. For example large meals right before the test will make it higher and exercise will make it lower.
116881 tn?1189755823 I would love to know more about what readings are appropriate for pre diabetics but everything I read about is for diabetics. Does anyone know of any good sources? Meanwhile, I recommend you speak with a medical professional given your readings are so high in the mornings. When mine are that high, I freak--maybe unnecessarily since I don't have all the facts.
798555 tn?1292787551 "What is the best method of testing glucose with a home meter before and after meals for a good baseline to compare in the future?" Preprandial [b4 meal] levels should be in normal fasting range of 60/70 to 99 mg/dl Postprandial [2-3 hours after meal] range are as follows: • Diabetics aim for <141 mg/dl, optimum <121 mg/dl. • In non-diabetics, glucose peak ∼60 minutes after the start of a meal, rarely exceed 140 mg/dl, and return to preprandial fasting levels.
Avatar m tn For diabetics it can go either way. Treatment can cause the blood sugar to go up or down. But if the diabetes is not under good control before starting treatment for Hep C, it lowers your chances of success. Adverse events are also more common on diabetics. I have NEVER seen diabetes go away after treatment. I have seen the blood sugar improve but diabetes disappear? Never.
Avatar m tn I have a cousin whose blood sugar levels often rise over 300s. This has been over a couple of years now. I am really concerned about him but unfortunately he doesn't seem to really care about himself and believes that the oral medications he's taking is enough. He shows no symptoms of diabetes at all. My questions are: 1. How come very high glucose levels cause no symptoms at all? (no frequent urination, thirst, blurred vision, etc) 2.
Avatar f tn I had a glucose test 3 weeks ago and it was in the normal range, never had a history of high levels. I woke up this morning with a boil on my inner thigh and my sister said it could be a symptom of diabetes. I also had a cbc that was normal. Is she correct? Could I go from normal glucose level to diabetic level so quickly? I am a bit nervous now. Thanks in advance!
Avatar n tn Fasting blood glucose is still in the Normal range despite it takes 3 hours on the GTT for my glucose to get back to a normal level. Fasting Glucose - 100 1 Hour - 204 2 Hour - 181 3 Hour - 125 So now it's Diabetes, Hypothyroid and Fibromyalgia Any thoughts to be shared are appreciated. This is all new to me!
Avatar n tn I know this may be difficult to answer without knowing him but I just wanted to know it anyone (diabetic or professional) has any suggestions for how I can get through to him regarding his diet and overall blood sugar control. He currently checks his blood sugars several time/day but they are rarely with the normal range. I am worried that because of his poor care and higher interest in his appearance that his diabetes control his life will end at an early age.
