Blood glucose test apparatus

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose test apparatus


Avatar m tn t living my best at the time. But I went out and purchased a glucose testing apparatus, and strips and such. My numbers were NEVER above 100. Neither in the morning nor 2 hours after eating. The average being 83. Once 94, I think. And one time 550 two hours after eating, which I decided had to be a mistake(dirty finger) cause I felt fine as rain and from what I hear 550 would be pretty much a diabetic coma. Anyway, here I am a year later and my A1C is 5.8.

So today I had to go for a 3 hr test sinces yesterday my number was 141 and they wanted me to be under 135. Anyone that can shed some light on this would be wonderful.
Avatar f tn And also said Ill have the glucose test my next apt. What would they have taken one more vial of blood for?
Avatar f tn Everyone is required to do it now. They just draw blood from your arm, like normal blood work. Mine came back negative, so my little boobear is ok:D and in a couple of weeks you'll get blood drawn again for glucose test...takes about an hr...lame. and then a few weeks after that, they do blood work again...but i forgot why this last time lol cow brains... haha or maybe this lastime was just me because im anemic and my platlets are very very low. Hmmm ..
Avatar f tn I just got home from by blood glucose test and feel really sick and tired. Is this normal? Does it mean something is wrong?
Avatar f tn I'm so pissed my doctor sent to do a blood glucose test gave me instructions not to fast and now that I got here the nurse told me I have to fast for it to be correct... like what the f***... has anyone had to take that 3 hours test cause of not fasting??
Avatar m tn These are constriction of retinal blood vessels, decreased blood flow due to hypotension, arrhythmias, anemia, thromboembolism, and epileptic seizure. Local conditions like glaucoma and optic neuritis, following heavy meals, in association with demyelinating conditions and raised intracranial pressure. Consult a neurophysician for a detailed evaluation.
Avatar f tn Thank you for your reply.My main concern is that it's a hypodermic needle on infusion apparatus, and I searched this forum and found you advised that "blood in the INSIDE of the bore of the needle is protected from the elements" regarding hypodermic needle. So it could still be a risk? Thanks a lot and await your reply.
Avatar m tn The Blood Test was Tuesday morning. The results which were flagged as "high" were Hematocrit 52.3%", Glucose 107 mg/dl, Albumin 5.1 g/dl, A/G Ratio 2.7, Bilirubin Total 1.3mg/dl. I don't know what any of this means.
Avatar n tn m getting the tests back with not a lot of explanation. Its making me a little nervous. The thing that worries me the most is that the glucose test came out about 5 points high and I have to go in for the 3 hour glucose test. Has anyone had this happen and ended up not having anything wrong? I'm fearing the worst and hoping for the best.
Avatar n tn ,if that patient happens to be an HIV+ and the instrument / apparatus use to her was not washed properly and still blood on it and the dentist use the same apparatus to me., WHAT IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ME BEING TRANSMITTED BY HIV.,IS IT HIGH RISK OR NO RISK., PLEASE HELP ME IM REALLY PARANOID BECAUSE OF THIS SITUATION.
Avatar n tn In the event that you had an arbitrary blood glucose test, an ordinary outcome relies upon when you last ate. More often than not, the blood glucose level will be underneath 125 mg/dL (6.
Avatar f tn I have to take a 3 hour blood sugar test I'm nervous and scared :/ for whoever done it before how was it ?
Avatar n tn The range of 70-126 is considered normal before eating a meal, or as a fasting glucose level. So although the one test at slightly above 200 does seem suspect, one test alone is probably not something your doctor would base a diagnosis on. Most doctors will do a fasting glucose reading, perhaps a glucose tolerance test, or perhaps a hemoglobin a1c test, which would show the average glucose level in your body during a 3-month period.
Avatar m tn The only limited risk would have been if her head bled and there was blood on the barber apparatus. But again, very limtied risk. She may be tested 3 weeks after it had happened.
Avatar f tn I had the two hour test, they took blood, gave me the drink, waited for two hours and took blood again.
Avatar f tn Hey you guys..I will be six months on Tuesday and my next doctors appointment will be when I'm 26weeks and one day....I should be having my glucose tolerance test soon....I was wondering how was it for some of you? Like what was the process you had to go through? I'm just really curious before I have mime..
Avatar f tn I had to get my blood taken before, & after the test.
Avatar f tn They draw your blood, you drink the solution, wait 30 minutes, and draw your blood again. Needle is only in your arm for 30 seconds each time.
