Tbd How often do you check your blood sugar when you have a history on both sides of the family but are not currently diabetic
1813627 tn?1337722375 Had about 10 viles of blood taken which I gather is normal the first time. They also had be do an hour blood glucose test done which I thought was done later in pregnancy. 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 I did a 1-hour glucose test today (if you're confused you usually do this test around week 26). The reason I had it was because my doctor wants to check for Gestational Diabetes each trimester since I'm at higher risk for developing it thanks to my stupid PCOS. Pray I don't get GD! Anyway, I think test will show normal. Otherwise I have to do the 3-hour glucose test (NOT FUN)! I also had blood drawn for regular prenatal tests. In all they took 5 vials of my blood.
Avatar f tn Oh really? I went into my first one non fasting the doctor told me to eat something high in protein like eggs.
Avatar f tn Is it possible to have diabetes without having high blood sugar? I've never had a glucose level over 90 on any blood test. I've had to have labs done several times throughout the last couple of years. It's usually 70-80. Once 90. Never anything else. I have to go in tomorrow for testing because my urine has had a strange odor. I don't want to say it's sweet but it's kinda similar. I've never been overweight and have never had a recorded high glucose level.
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...
180395 tn?1287493997 " Are these levels normal?" First, I'm glad you posted for the chance of diabetes are greater when the parents have it. What you need to do today is change doctors and find one that will listen to you, offer advice, and not ignore your health. Unfortunately not all doctors follow their "hippocrates oath" and it appears yours is in this category. Ask your doctor to test your glucose (blood sugar) with an OGTT (oral fasting glucose and an A1c test.
Avatar n tn What is this glucose test I keep hearing about? I'm 25wk and I've not done it.
Avatar n tn ok i have recently taken a urine test because i had some kind of uti they said there was a very high abnormal range of glucose in my urine but when i came back the next day they gave me a blood suger test which was normal does anyone know what may have caused the high glucose in my urine?
9038886 tn?1402125726 I took my glucose test when I was 5 months. . I am going to take another one at my next appt. I will be 7 months. Has anyone taken it twice before? & did they tell you why?.
Avatar m tn The blood glucose test is ordered to measure the amount of glucose in the blood right at the time of sample collection. It is used to detect both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, to help diagnose diabetes, and to monitor glucose levels in persons with diabetes. The urine glucose is seldom ordered by itself. At one time, it was used to monitor diabetics, but it has been largely replaced by the more sensitive and “real time” blood glucose.
Avatar n tn Definite diagnosis of diabetes is usually with blood testing your glucose levels as mentioned above. A fasting plasma glucose (FPG) test , an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) or a random plasma glucose test, along with an assessment of symptoms, is used to diagnose diabetes. Risk factors for diabetes include age, excess body weight , family history of diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipedemia increases the chance of being a diabetic. Hope this helps. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Hey ladies.im 27week+3days So confused, i took my glucose test and got the results back. My glucose level was 149. I dont know if thats normal or not... any positive encouragement or advises would help. Thanks!
Avatar f tn I came to the lab to get my lab work done this morning and they informed me that I have to stay for a 1 hour glucose test. I am only 5 weeks pregnant. Why would they order a glucose test so early??? I don't remember doing the glucose test this early with my 1st pregnancy.
Avatar n tn org/forums/Diabetes---Adult-Type-II/show/46 While there is some degree of variability among people, most will usually develop symptoms suggestive of hypoglycemia when blood glucose levels are lowered to the mid 60's. The first set of symptoms are called adrenergic (or sympathetic) because they relate to the nervous system's response to hypoglycemia.
231441 tn?1333892766 Regardless of the results of your glucose test, you should continue to keep an eye on your blood sugars during your pregnancy because you are at higher risk of developing gestational diabetes given your history. You will stil need to gain adequate weight to nourish your baby, but you should aim for about 25-30 pounds during the pregnancy and not too much over that, so that you can limit your chances of having abnormal glucoses during the pregnancy. Hope this helps. Good luck and take care!
Avatar m tn but not high enough to make the diagnosis of diabetes. The tests used to make this diagnosis are blood glucose test and a glucose tolerance test. Has your doctor done either of these? There are no real symptoms of pre diabetes. The symptoms of diabetes include frequent urination, thirst, blurred vision, numbness/tingling in the distal extremities, fatigue, slowed healing of cuts, and frequent infections. Peripheral neuropathy is a condition frequently found with diabetes.
Tbd I just recently had a health screening and after fasting 12 hours my blood glucose was 111. Should i be overly concerned with that? Will they put me on meds or just monitor it. My history of blood glucose levels range over the last 4 years from 94 to the current 111.
Avatar m tn I started measuring my blood glucose levels because i have family history of type 2 diabetes. So when i get the chance (and i get a lot) i test my blood glucose levels. I do a lot of tests and the blood glucose levels were never >140 mg /ml (134 was the highest one, so i got concerned). While fasting usually the blood glucose is arround 90. 1 day happened to be 108 (i ate a lot the night before).
Avatar f tn You do not have to have this test done in fact I will not be doing this test. My doctors tried to scare me by telling me I could have. 10 lbs baby... Reality is I have big babies I eat healthy and have not history of blood sugar issues.
