Blood glucose reference range

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose reference range


875426 tn?1325528416 But while you had cited the reference range for a fasting blood sugar test which had the bottom number of the range as 60 and did not at first very specifically apply it to a random blood sugar specimen in a previous post, in a later post, you went on to say 67 is not considered low, hence the clarifying question I asked you.
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 f tn By her "return to normal" comment, I take it Chess's lab has a reference range flagging fasting blood sugar as elevated.
Avatar f tn Hello, Your blood sugar results to OGTT seem to be totally normal. In normal people blood glucose will be in the 70 - 90s range regardless of what you eat or drink. Why was an OGTT performed? Did your doctor test insulin at the same time that they tested blood glucose?
Avatar n tn The problem is, the glucose number (after fasting) was 125. The reference rage on that line was 70-126. My last phsyical 2 years prior with a different doctor included complete blood work. I did not get written results from that physcial just a call from the nurse saying everything was normal. My current doctor is board certified in internal medicine and his his CV says he has an interest in diabetes. Am I missing something? Is 125 considered "very good".
Avatar n tn My thyroid levels were very similar to yours and it was discovered that I have a condition called Metabolic Syndrome, which is a cluster of conditions consisting of high blood pressure, high blood glucose (fasting blood glucose over 100 is impaired), high triglycerides or cholesterol, excess body fat around the waist. Having just one of the components doesn't qualify as Metabolic Syndrome; you must have at least 3 of them.
Avatar n tn Upon performing the 2hr OGTT (using 75g drink) or the 3hr OGTT (using 100g drink), on several occasions, I have experienced serum glucose values measured at 1hr lower than those of the 2hr glucose values (Fasting glucose within reference range and all samples collected, processed, and separated within appropriate timing). For individuals with "mild" diabetes and suspected gestational diabetes, how likely it is for glucose measurements to show this trend?
Avatar n tn Everything is within normal range. I just have a question about ALT. Mines was 56 with reference range 9-60 u/l. I keep hearing that 30 is suppose to be normal and anything over 30 signals Hep C, Fatty Liver, etc..but does that go for 30-65 area? Why are some labs different? I am 28 5'11, 160lbs but I do not exercise and eat whatever I want. My doctor and a NP i visited do not seem concern at all.
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.
Avatar m tn 0, specific gravity 1.025,250 of glucose, which makes no sense with normal serum glucose and negative for ketones, blood, nitrite and leukocyte esterase. Urine hCG was negative as well" I just dont understand. Its looking like i have more than one thing working against me.
Avatar m tn Trace kerone in a nondiabetic can happen in extreme stress.In your case no significance.
Avatar m tn The difference between a fasting glucose of 101 and 106 is probably negligible. Both of your values suggest that you have impaired fasting glucose (range 100 - 125). The measurement is the same in fasting and non fasting testing - the difference is in the reference range. A normal fasting glucose is < 100 and the current thinking seems to be that even a result in the mid to high 90s might suggest close monitoring.
