Avatar f tn I am on metformin 2000mg, but my blood glucose is still high in the morning yet low after my evening meal. Is there anything I can do to lower the readings.And why would this be happening. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/720106'>Diabetic meds</a>.
Avatar n tn sound like you have DP (dawn phenomenon) your liver decides to be a good dube and releases glucose in the morning so your body has the energy to get going. Unfortunately it ether releases to much glucose or your pancreas cant keep up with insulin so your BG rises. I take that back there is a natural hormone you can take, pig insulin. Metforman has a 30 year history and works well at keeping the liver from releasing glucose.
Avatar n tn I have recently analized my urine with urinalysis stix and found there to be lots of glucose (glycosuria). on repeating the test several times later on the same day - negative. 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 f tn I was rushed to the er because I fainted at work (couple weeks before my glucose test) and they said it was dehydration and sugar. So if you don't feel right, listen to your body and drink.
Avatar f tn From what I understand, the amount of adult hemoglobin that becomes glycosylated to form HbA1c is directly related to the average concentration of glucose in the blood. In a normal person about 3-6% of Hb is glycosylated. One thing to investigate is whether you are experiencing the Symogi effect [reverse hyperglycemia while sleeping]. To counter this the liver releases extra glucose. One way to find out is to set your alarm and wake up at 2-3 am, or 4 hours after your bedtime, and test.
10221785 tn?1410990458 So I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning and I am due for my glucose test very soon and I am extremely nervous.. How did it go for you mums? What does it determine exactly? All I really know is that you're not suppose to eat and it's a three hour test and involves a sugar based drink?
Avatar f tn going in for my test this morning, what should I expect? I'm thinking of buying a magazine, it's going to suck so badly to not have a morning coffee!
Avatar f tn Everyone I have talked to made the glucose test sound so bad .. Is it really that bad ? What flavors did you ladies go with and what was the outcome ? Do they give you something to drink with it?
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 So I have my glucose test in the morning. I'm sure I was told I'm not allowed to eat or drink anything from now until the test in the morning, does anyone know if this includes water?
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.

1538488 tn?1331483305 After 2 hrs of b/f 165-190mg/dl. No medication.Glucose level slightly increase after exercise in the morning .What action is to be taken?
Avatar f tn It's just to make sure you don't have gestational diabetes! No big deal! You'll want to go in the morning because you can't eat or drink anything 2 hours prior to them taking your blood. When you go in they will have you drink this orange drink that's basically like flat orange soda then you'll have to wait one hour before they will draw your blood. I would suggest not eating a lot of sugary stuff that day before you go in because it might effect your test results!
Avatar f tn I have been monitoring my blood sugars at home since at a doctor visit my fasting glucose was 135. Every morning in the past week I have taken it (on empty stomach) it has been in the 130's, only one time it was 114. All throughout the day it is between 129 and 158, sometimes it is 192, 263. I had blood drawn today for A1c, should get the results in a couple of days. I am wondering if these numbers are normal, or do I have a problem?
490398 tn?1319940717 This is NOT a fasting glucose. My dad is diabetic and he has all of the tools to test blood. He has regular diabetes not Type 2 but it usually skips a generation. I had blood taken at the doctor last week, again, not fasting, for other health problems and it came back at 169. My doc obviously wants to retest me when I've been fasting and get an A1c.
7566904 tn?1394763978 They're gonna test your blood sugar levels. Sugar from cookies the night before should be out of your blood by tomorrow.
Avatar f tn So I have the glucose test in 3 weeks everyone is saying how horrible it is. Is it that bad?
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 n tn I took my daughter in for a physical last week and the dr. told me her glucose level in her urine was 3+ and blood stick was 288. He was VERY concerned and told me to take her in to her dr. the next morning. Her regular dr. told her fasting glucose was 0 and blood stick was 127. She told me the dr.'s machines were wrong the night before (it was an Urgent Care Center) and she's fine ... asked me to bring her back in a year.
4591205 tn?1410605174 You are supposed to eat what you normally would in the morning but no food two hours before your test. You can't drink water while you wait either.
Avatar f tn I have a glucose test in the morning & I am very nervous this is my first pregnancy I guess that's why I really need advice...
Avatar f tn I have my glucose test in the morning. Does it take one hour or three hours? And when do you get the results?
Avatar n tn s office nurse with her concerns about the blood glucose. I guess she was just following up. My sister called the primary care physician and was told that there were no available appointments until May 10th. The office worker was rude and stated that she wasn't a doctor and did not know anything about diabetes. I guess the office worker got upset when my sister was trying to explain to her that a 480 reading is cause for concern.
