Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose test last 6 months


Avatar m tn If you have co-morbid conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, or both, it is important that blood glucose and blood pressure are controlled. It is best that you discuss the results with your attending physician for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.

Avatar f tn FTM honestly I'm so excited but I literally feel like crap lately I'm young but I have lower back problems and my back just hurts so bad that I can feel it around to my stomach sometimes and I really don't want to take too much Tylenol any suggestions?
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 m tn I am a little concerned over the elevated fasting glucose level, have they drawn an A1C? This will tell what the sugars have been doing for the last 3 months. As to the rest of the test, being I am not an RN or Lab tech, I really can not interpret the numbers.
Avatar f tn Your fasting blood sugars are within normal range. It is improper to test randomly as it does not provide a clear insight on how your body handles excess sugar. Part of your annual health exam should include testing for diabetes. Go see your doctor for one.
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.
Avatar f tn Here is clarification on glucose testing; a fasting glucose (GTT) or an oral glucose test (OGTT) measures glucose in your blood at the time of the test. It does not take into count what you levels were three months ago, a week ago, or the day before the test. The Hemoglobin A1c (HgbA1c or HbA1c) test measures your average glucose level over the past three months. The results are presented in % (percentile) where below 6% is considered normal.
Avatar f tn I don't know what I am gonna do I don't have my periods for 2 months and did the test came out negative so ?
Avatar n tn My son is 4 years old and autistic, he's had 3 seizures in the past 6 months. They are always early morning and usually he is up for about 3 or 4 hours and he starts to fall back to sleep when he has the seizure. Then after the seizure he's out of it for 5 or 6 hours and he only wakes up to get sick. His seizures last around 5-6 minutes. He had a seizure in November and he didn't have a fever and the EEG was normal.
Avatar m tn not sure if this will help you but I tested neg at 3 months 4 months and guess what my 6 month final test was? NEGATIVE! Only did the 6 month because my Dr. is super conservative which she has every right to be. Moral of the story I highly doubt you have anything to worry about. Also if it is neg. seek the help if you can't get passed this. After all life is for you to enjoy not dwell on! Learn from this mistake and move passed it and be well. God bless and take care.
Avatar n tn You could also ask for the HA1c test, which is a test that tells you what your average blood glucose has been over the past few months. A result of about 4.8 is ideal in healthy people. Anything above about 6 is considered diabetic. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn In order to determine whether or not a patient has pre-diabetes or diabetes, health care providers conduct a Fasting Plasma Glucose Test (FPG) or an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT). Either test can be used to diagnose pre-diabetes or diabetes. The American Diabetes Association recommends the FPG because it is easier, faster, and less expensive to perform. With the FPG test, a fasting blood glucose level between 100 and 125 mg/dl signals pre-diabetes.
Avatar f tn Yupp, I just had mine done, yesterday
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.
Avatar n tn I am 23 wks preggers and last week I saw my consultant, who has said in mid sept I have to have a glucose test. I have low blood pressure all the way through pregnancy, high BMI because I am overweight and the consultant put me on clexane injections daily. Can anyone tell me why I have to have this glucose test and what it's for please? I have had a poor diet because of bad sickness. I was losing weight up to 3-4 months preggers and I still have sickness now just not as bad.
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 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 d probably get it checked in another 6 months to see where you are at. This article may help you understand how blood sugar can fluctuate and when it is normal. https://www.mayoclinic.
