Avatar n tn we have seen some poor research results from producer (even poorer tests than what we as single patients do) so we think it is almost useless anyway let us know if it deacreses hbsag quantity, check in the community where hbsag quant test can be made in india, it is about 3-4 hospitals/labs that can do it hbvdna has very little meaning but if it gets to und with hbsag lowering please let us know
Avatar n tn occational increase in blood glucose levels and cholestrol from age of 25. High blood pressure (140/90) since a year, with medication BP is 130/90. And now consistent higher levels of glucose since april 2013, cholestrol is well within limits now. He had chicken pox in january 2013. he lost weight and muscle tone in may-june. There are no symptoms of diabetes at all. Is he diabetic or can i hope that reducing his anxiety problem can bring the glucose level to normal?
Avatar n tn By reusing a glucose test strip they would not get an accurate read on your blood glucose because blood from the previous test would still be on the strip. That fact is common knowledge regardless of what country you are in so despite your suspicions I still do not think you have any cause for concern. If you consult with the hospital who perfomed the test I'm sure they will explain in detail why they cannot resuse test strips.
Avatar n tn But he started medication for migraine around age of 26 (reason being unaware). occational increase in blood glucose levels and cholestrol from age of 25. High blood pressure (140/90) since a year, with medication BP is 130/90. And now consistent higher levels of glucose since april 2013, cholestrol is well within limits now.

Avatar n tn The most reliable result should be a fasting glucose done in the lab, with blood drawn from the veins, but not from capillaries in the fingers. It's not useful to just have finger picks randomly. If you have finger pick within 2 hrs after meal the result will be high even for normal people. 4 hr OGTT is not very reliable From what I've known, you can only say someone is diabetic if there is one of the following: 1. fasting plasma glucose >126 mg/dl 2.
Avatar m tn night times I feel pain in leg muscles and ankel. two days back I took Glucose tolerant Test (75 grms of glucose) . The test results AC1 are - fasting 5.3 mmol/l , after 1 hour GTT 8.83 mmol/l ,after 2 hours it suddenly dropped to 3.9 mmol/l , after 3 hours it is 4.2 . Early morning after taking 75 mg of glucose i feel little difficult to breath and dizziness for a while.and today evening i tested with home kit .. it is showing 5.6 mmol/l My father and grand father are diabetic.
Avatar m tn Yeah,but it's the fact that the blood glucose test strips were in there that worries me,not the water itself.....

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?
Avatar m tn She said there were traces of glucose and white blood cells in my urine. She has asked me to go in for a blood test and I think a Prostate psa test. I'm worried it could be something serious?
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 n tn without any glucose. I underwent a fasting blood glucose test which showed a level of 5.3 mmol/l (95.4 mg/dl). today on testing my urine about 30 mins after 250ml of coke and 3 sweet biscuits there was NO glucose in the urine. Can anyone explain why the first test was positive?
Avatar m tn its negative, the next test was 3 months back also negative (rapid test as well). Both of my test were done in path lab run by private in india , no doctors in these path labs. I want to know how reliable test done in these blood test labs.
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 m not certain of the health protocols in India regarding home glucose meter purchases. In the States they run around $10-15 American and can be found at most all drug/pharmacy stores. If you are uncertain call your doctor and ask him/her. Test first thing in morning [fasting] then 2-3 hours after a meal [postprandial]. The latter tells you how the foods you consumed affected your glucose levels. Avoid/restrict those that do.
Avatar m tn Can outside air pressure or atmosphere pressure inject the blood from the needle to by blood vein?? Can vacutainer blood drawing process under any circumstances inject needle blood into the body or it is an established fact that vacutainer needles FOR BLOOD DRAWING cannot inject any blood into the body?? 2. Is drawing of blood from contaminated needle pose same risk of HIV infection as injecting medicine from contaminated needle into the vein?? 3.
Avatar f tn hi doctor, I'm really scared about an incident. 3 weeks I've been to a shopping mall in the place I live in India. There was a health check up stand/outlet. They're doing basic BMI, haemoglobin, blood glucose, blood cholesterol etc tests. They're using handheld machines which give instant results. I've (being very stupid, now I feel so) thought of checking my cholesterol.
