5536886 tn?1455827346 How did you choose which blood glucose monitor to use? Are there certain features that make one better then the other?
Avatar m tn Also l bought a Dus 10 urine strp home test kit . If the result is the colour blue its normal, green means some glucose and brown colour means a high level, When l wake up in the morning l got a green or light green, but during the day l took two tests and got normal blue. Could meals or food affect the result.
194838 tn?1303428544 Hi, Im still pretty new to Diabetes though I have posted before about my medications. My doctor has told me that my fasting blood test was 10, is this very high ? I do not test my own blood but am sent to the hospital for fairly regular tests but notice that when people post with their blood glucose levels they are in the 100s.
Avatar f tn A week later the surgeon repeated the tests to prepare me for surgery. The glucose level was 86 which was normal since the range used was 65-99. Three days ago my blood was drawn an hour or less after eating. The results once again read the glucose level of 115 which was high since the range used was 65-99. No one in my family has diabetes. I will see my pcp in a few days. Should I be concerned?
Avatar m tn Are you concerned about the upward trend in your readings? If so, assuming that you did the testing with a "home" blood glucose meter, and that you tested at the same time each day, your readings are well within the accuracy range of the meter.
519736 tn?1253986826 The black coffee 8-12 hours prior to a blood sugar test will skewer test results. That was a no-no. If your Endo was not told about the "black coffee" he/she is going by your test result and why you were informed of "becoming insulin resistant". As I said earlier, you may or may not be prediabetic. A follow up test is necessary. Before venturing on let's clarify some terms. Blood sugar and glucose in a round about way are synonymous.
1666903 tn?1383332156 Started Lamictal a little over a month ago an gradually increased dose, on 100 mg now and my glucose is unquestionably elevated above 175, I am going in for a blood test to confirm this and ask my doc what to do about it. Both drugs are helping with my bipolar.
499534 tn?1328704178 Now I have also had a low blood glucose level and my second high am cortisol. I go in tomorrow am for a Dexamethasone test for adrenals. Anyone else done this test?? I don't understand what is going on with my body....I have been sooooo sick again.
267076 tn?1270674331 About a month ago I went to the ER with bad headaches. They did a blood test and I just found out that my glucose was 141. That seems high to me but they never said anything about it (I wasn't fasting). Is that diabetic range? Should I be concerned about having diabetes? It seems odd to me that a year ago it was in the 90's but a month ago it was 141. I had a complete blood work done last week (after fasting) so I'll see what it is when I get the results.
Avatar f tn I'm a little sad that I didn't pass my glucose test yesterday now I gotta go back for the 3 hour test I pray that I score in the passing levels come Monday...has anyone else had to take the test twice??
306245 tn?1244384967 The accepted ways of screening for diabetes are a fasting glucose, a random glucose(not as good) or a 2 hour glucose tolerance test. A HgB A1C is sometimes used by doctors but it is not widely accepted as a good screening measure, so I suggest a fasting or an OGTT. You should also have a thyroid screen(TSH) done. Fasting glucose is not perfect, so yes you can have a "false negative" in terms of saying you have no abnormalities in glucose handling.
Avatar f tn My doc just called and I did not pass the 1-hour glucose test so now I have to go back for the 3-hour! Has this happened to anybody? Anyone know what happens if I have the diabetes you get with pregnancy? Ugh!
Avatar n tn I've been prescribed and taking Suboxone for approximately 30 days and have noticed a significant increase in my blood glucose level. I've asked my pharmacist for her opinion but she knows very little about the topic. I haven't asked my shrink yet but will at my next appointment. In the meantime, this has me spooked. Anyone know???
Avatar n tn I believe you asked about HYPOglycemia: The symptoms are vary varied and might include dizziness, feeling generally out of it, fatigue, irritability, disorientation, tingling. Testing is the key as if your numbers have been high for awhile you will feel low even if you're not. You should treat any lows below 60 (some treat below 70) with a couple glucose tablets. You will learn the correct number for you.
Avatar f tn I fasted 8 hours and then went to the clinic to get blood tested for diabetes...first the pricked my finger and then my blood sugar showed 97...then urine test was good didn't find sugar in my urine...then drown blood to take to the lab...
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.
Avatar n tn Since my MD told me I was prediabetic (109 fasting) I have cut out all sugar but I do eat fruit and use Xylitol and NutraSweet. However my blood sugar is now 116 fasting. Why and what can I do? I do not eat bread very often but I do eat oatmeal in the morning as I have to for IBS. Thank you.
Avatar f tn 0 they will then ask you to drink a 500ml bottle of Lucozade in one go, you need to wait for two hours and then have a blood test done. This blood test will determine how your body is absorbing the glucose, if it returns to 6 or below your body is fine but around 8+is considered an intolerance and 10+ is considered Diabetic. Mine came back at 8.8 so am considered intolerant, but no action has been taken just advised a good healthy diet.

Avatar n tn It makes a BIG difference when you test your blood sugar [glucose]. Not knowing your country of residence, the following are testing times with US measurement units. The UK and other countries, like Canada, require conversion from mg/dl to mmol/l. ‚óŹ Fasting - first thing in morning before eating or drinking anything except water.
Avatar n tn There is a hormone that naturally raises morning blood sugar, its the way the body helps you to get moving in the morning. However over 300 at anytime is not good. Try keeping watch on your carbohydrates...they will play badly with your blood sugar, and don't feel bad to test your blood sugar, thats what the testing kit is for. I agree you need to find a new doctor. Good luck!
Avatar f tn The A1c provides an insight on your past 2-3 month glucose levels. Red blood cells live on average 2-3 months. Excess glucose rides on new red blood cells, the A1c captures this and provides an estimated three month daily average. " If a result such as 5.8% translates into an "average daily" value of 120 mg/dL, how can 5.8% be considered normal?" An A1c of 5.8% equates to an eAG [estimated daily Average Glucose] of 120 mg/dl, key word is estimated.
