Blood glucose pre diabetic levels

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose pre diabetic levels


Avatar m tn I suggest talking with your doctor, getting an accurate diagnosis and then going from there. If you are determined to be pre-diabetic or to have type 2 diabetes then you can begin to determine a plan to manage your blood sugars. Type 2 diabetes is a manageable condition, but if you ignore it the consequences are quite serious. Managing type 2 diabetes is done with carb reduction, weight loss if needed, exercise and oral meds if your doctor determines this is needed.
Avatar m tn Yes but my concern was more so that you can control diabetes to be normal levels; however, once diabetic you will always be diabetic, and crossing the pre-diabetes line to diabetes and diabetes itself cannot be cured or reversed, but only controlled. You can return to normal levels; however, you're still labeled as a "diabetic" and may always return with worse symptoms compared to people who are not diabetic. So you will always need to be in control of it.
Avatar n tn They nay ask you to check blood sugars if they suspect a possible problem. In my case I was not diabetic... But then I got pregnant. My end asked me e to check blood sugars immediately. Lo and behold turned out I became diabetic very early in that pregnancy.
Avatar n tn If you searched the Internet on glucose test levels, you will find they vary in some degree to what is considered normal. Most say 120 mg/dl is the high water mark. At 120 you be considered pre-diabetic. Above 120, as in your 127, diabetic. As an example, MedHelp says : "Levels up to 100 mg/dL are considered normal. Levels between 100 and 126 mg/dl are referred to as impaired fasting glucose or pre-diabetes.
Avatar m tn Your dad is correct, disruptive sleep patterns caused by sleep apnea have been linked to elevating glucose levels and diabetes, high blood pressure, lack of energy, moodiness, and cardio unrest. Getting a good nights rest is one key in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Avatar n tn Improper testing techniques comes to mind - not cleaning test area, uncalibrated test equipment, etc. To be certain of your blood sugar levels get an A1c [HbA1c, HgbA1c] test. An A1c test will inform you of your blood sugars levels for the past 2-3 months, the lifespan of new red blood cells. Excess blood sugars attach to new RBC's never getting absorbed for use as energy. The A1c captures this. It is the standard most doctors use to verify diabetes or not.
Avatar n tn I agree with the previous posting. Normal pre-meal blood sugar levels should be between 70-146, according to most articles I have read. However, even healthy people can find that blood sugar levels rise above this occasionally if they eat high-glucose foods. In your case, the high reading COULD (mere speculation here) be due to having the hypoglycemic episode before you ate the candy bar.
173119 tn?1296999736 I am pre-diabetic, and I was wondering if it was normal for blood sugars to be a bit higher when suffering from an illness, like a cold. I have a cold right now, and my blood glucose levels have been testing slightly higher since I have been sick. Will they go back down after the cold is gone? My fasting glucose this morning was 133 and it is usually around 110 to 112. And my 2 hr post-prandial glucose after lunch today was 133.
370181 tn?1595629445 My doctor has just told me that I am pre-diabetic. My fasting glucose was 124. Needless to say I'm pretty scared and would like your advice on what I need to do to either reduce or even reverse this diagnosis. Can anyone recommend a good book that lists the foods I need to avoid and ones that are very good. Is there a supplement I can take to help?
649848 tn?1534633700 The last time it was measured blood glucose was 125, with insulin at 8.1. Blood glucose was considered to be in pre-diabetic range, while insulin level was considered to be normal. Now that I've had the GTT, my doctor says instead of pre-diabetes, I have Reactive Hypoglycemia...
Avatar f tn Recently I have been checking my fasting blood glucose myself at roughly the same time and before breakfast, however the levels are wide ranging. Eg one day day 5.1 mmol (91mg/dl), then several 5.8 mmol (105mg/dl) then several 6 mmol (108mg/dl) then 6.1 mmol (110mg/dl) then 7.8 mmol (140mg/dl) So my fasting glucose ranges from normal to high Question, can pre-diabetes have fasting glucose levels that vary from day to day from some days as normal to other days being high?
Avatar n tn My glucose was 98 a few months ago - had been in hospital and was 98 - EXCEPT when they gave me either heparin or drip antibiotic drip - then it charged up to 177 - and they gave me a shot and I was back down to "normal" - but my Aic is now 6 - and glucose 105 - gosh darn - get one thing fixed and then it is something else
Avatar f tn If your fasting glucose is higher than 125 you are actually diabetic. If you get a blood glucose tolerance test your glucose level should be below 200 one - two hours after the test...
Avatar n tn t tell a doctor what is going with your glucose levels at all times of the day. Home glucose meters are good to see how well one is managing their glucose levels. Having scaled results (high to low, or normal to near high or above) calls for an A1c test to see the entire picture. An A1c test measures your glucose going back three months. Why three months? On the average, new red blood cells live three months before dieing off and getting turned into Bilirubin.
Avatar n tn There are several ways you can diagnose diabetes. Your level last night after one cup of soda is more representative of a random blood glucose. A random glucose of >200mg/dL with symptoms of diabetes is diagnostic of Type 2 Diabetes. Therefore, from that one measure, you do not have Type 2 Diabetes. However, your fasting sugar is within the pre-diabetic range. Are you pregnant? You posted in the gestation diabetes section which is diabetes within pregnancy. Hope that helps!
Avatar n tn I know Diabetes Type II is 126 and higher but does anyone know if this is considered Pre-Diabetic levels?
Avatar m tn I've been pre diabetic for the last several years. I recently had a fasting glucose test and it showed my blood sugar was 142.. which is basically the diabetic range, I redid the test the next week and I dropped back down to 118 the prediabetic range. I've never spiked to the diabetic range until that day. Could lack of sleep and stress maybe have spiked the glucose that high?
Avatar f tn By measuring your blood sugar response to different foods (test 2 hours after eating) you can work out which foods elevate blood sugar levels (Keep maximum blood sugar levels less than 140 (7.7), but even better if you can keep it below 100 (5.5). Exercise can also help you body to respond better to insulin and take up and use sugar in your blood. So a brisk walk for 30 minutes after eating could be helpful...
Avatar f tn In a person without diabetes, the glucose levels in the blood rise following drinking the glucose drink, but then then fall quickly back to normal (because insulin is produced in response to the glucose, and the insulin has a normal effect of lowing blood glucose.
Avatar f tn I took a fasting Glucose test that came up at 100 so now they say I might be pre-diabetic. But one poster here mentioned something about Thyroid and to tell your doctor if you have a thyroid condition. Well last year I was diagnosed with Hypo-thyrodism which means my thyroid doesn't produce enough of the Thyroid hormone. And I also know that when I had the Glucose test my thyroid levels may have been off because my doctor just adjusted my medication.
Avatar m tn Diabetes is diagnosed when fasting blood glucose levels are over 125. If fasting blood glucose levels are allowed to be over 250 or even 200, diabetes is very poorly controlled.
Avatar f tn However, your body can also break down protein to make glucose, and obviously there is some glucose in your body because your blood sugar levels are stable. On your ketogenic diet your levels are totally normal. However, on this diet there is very little demand on your pancreas. if you increase your carbs, depending on the health of your pancreas, you may or may not have high blood sugar levels. So we cannot know if you are diabetic. You do not have diabetic numbers on this diet.
Avatar n tn Fasting blood sugars should be under 100, so anything from 100-125 is considered pre-diabetic. 126 and over is diabetic. So you fall in the pre-diabetic range and should be learning about what you can do to keep your blood sugar from rising or slow its rise. This would include diet and exercise. You've made a good start limiting the junk. I would suggest eliminating sugar altogether and reducing your carb intake. I also suggest losing the 10 pounds overweight which will also help.
