Avatar n tn However, during this time I had blood drawn for a physical. The results of the test were increased blood sugar (170) and blood pressure (160/70). Can these results be because of the dog?
Avatar f tn White cells are very elevated, which indicates an infection and can cause the other quirks in the blood work. They don't seem that far out of line. Is your dog on antibiotics? If he is still not drinking he may need IV or Sub-q fluids to prevent dehydration. What did the exrays show?
1813627 tn?1337722375 a blood glucose test is normal when you first see the doctor around 8 to 10 weeks if your doctor thinks you have a risk factors for gestational diabetes such as being overweight. I am overweight and the doctor does 1 for me at 8 weeks and then again later on at the normal time. also your number could have been high if you didn't fast the night before.
Avatar f tn I have seen on here many of you taking a glucose test, I have never even heard of one, is that because am in the UK?
Avatar m tn Normally, glucose attaches to blood cells over the life of a blood cells. Like a tick on a dog. When the A1C test is taken there are gobs of glucose on these cells. The result is a high A1C result. When you are on treatment the ribavirin kills the blood cells at an early age so that they don't mature and accumulate gobs of glucose. As a result A1C test results may be artifically better during treatment even though you are eating everthing bad in sight.
Avatar n tn He has muscle atrophy in both of his hind legs and when picked up, he holds his back legs close to his body and will not straighten them. My vet did a blood test about 2 months ago that determined his blood glucose was under control at the high end of normal. My biggest concern at this point is the muscle atrophy/inability to walk.
Avatar m tn I'm confused how exercise can have an affect on a blood test... explain? I thought this thread was going to be something along the lines of... should I exercise because I haven't eaten anything since the day before... not smart, btw.
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 ..
190885 tn?1333025891 not bad for being well over 200 to start...although they did come into normal very fast on the triple....glucose great..thyroid normal.....electrolytes normal....the only thing that wasn't in the normal range was vitamin d was they say take 2000 per day for a hgb was up to 11!!! thats three days i know its much i guess time will tell...i think i caught the retina eye problem on eyes didn't hurt today at all...good news today....
Avatar f tn A lot of doctors are now just taking a blood sample for a test called A1C. The A1C test is a common blood test used to diagnose type 1 and type 2 diabetes and then to gauge how well you're managing your diabetes. The A1C test goes by many other names, including glycated hemoglobin, glycosylated hemoglobin, hemoglobin A1C and HbA1c. The A1C test result reflects your average blood sugar level for the past two to three months.
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 had my blood work done about a month ago and now have received a copy some of the results have me concerned first is the ESR which is 42mm Anion Gap 2meq Fasting Glucose 107 Total Billrubin 1.33mg ALT 21U/L TSH 2.46 Free T4 .
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 n tn Glucose in the blood is called blood glucose, also known as blood sugar. As the blood glucose level rises after a meal, the pancreas releases insulin to help cells take in and use the glucose. When people are insulin resistant, their muscle, fat, and liver cells do not respond properly to insulin. As a result, their bodies need more insulin to help glucose enter cells. The pancreas tries to keep up with this increased demand for insulin by producing more.
Avatar f tn I just got home from by blood glucose test and feel really sick and tired. Is this normal? Does it mean something is wrong?
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 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...
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.
