Blood glucose test results high

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose test results high


Avatar n tn Having scaled results (high to low, or normal to near high or above) calls for an A1c test to see the entire picture. An A1c test measures your glucose going back three months. Why three months? On the average, new red blood cells live three months before dieing off and getting turned into Bilirubin. Excess glucose binds to the outer wall of red cells and the A1c captures this. The A1c determines where you stand as far diabetes goes.
Avatar n tn How much the sugar varies from before meal to after meal seems to be the issue here. The glucose tolerance test is the correct test to see how your body reacts to high levels of carbohydrates. It does sound to me as if you perhaps vary more than is ideal, for a low of 57 or high of 256 is something that even diabetics try to avoid.
1813627 tn?1337722375 Had about 10 viles of blood taken which I gather is normal the first time. They also had be do an hour blood glucose test done which I thought was done later in pregnancy. So today I had to go for a 3 hr test sinces yesterday my number was 141 and they wanted me to be under 135. Anyone that can shed some light on this would be wonderful.
Avatar n tn I am 27 and have had many symptoms... high bp (as high as 167/102), daily headaches, extreme fatigue, amoung others. My dr has ran blood tests to check my kidneys, liver, white blood cell count, potassium, sodium, sugar and others... the only thing that came back abnormal was my blood sugar BUT it was a last minute test and I was not fasting. I went back and got my finger pricked and it came back just fine. I also had my urine tested that day and I had 250 mgs of glucose in it.
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.
Avatar f tn Medial advice is need to explain the possible (probable?) consequence of the test results that have an H (high) or an L (low), which means they are outside the range of what normal test results should be for a future healthy life. I am a diabetic, have triple coronary bypass surgery and I am a recovering alcoholic. My last drink of an alcoholic beverage was on Aug 8, 1978. I use to drink just like your husband does.
Avatar m tn I have recently received my blood test results from the doctor...She told me to cut down on fats in my diet... The outside of range, results are; Lymphocytes 48 Glucose 110 Cholesterol 228 Triglyceride 214 Hdl cholesterol 33 non hdl 195 Ldl Calc 152 VLDL Chol 43 Chol HDL Ratio 6.
Avatar m tn also found articles about oral glucose tolerance test they say not to eat low carb before the test because can make test result higher. not sure how it works some say insulin resistance get worse if you eat low carb other say insulin response get worse. seem like nobody know exactly.
Avatar f tn I took my hour glucose test a week ago and today my dr said that me levelswe high so I need to do the 3 hour test that requires me to fast for 12 hours then an additional 3 while blood levels are being tested. Has anyone else had to do this? Im worried about it. What happens if thise test come back high? And how the heck am I going to nit eat for that long? I cant even imagine.
Avatar n tn The range of 70-126 is considered normal before eating a meal, or as a fasting glucose level. So although the one test at slightly above 200 does seem suspect, one test alone is probably not something your doctor would base a diagnosis on. Most doctors will do a fasting glucose reading, perhaps a glucose tolerance test, or perhaps a hemoglobin a1c test, which would show the average glucose level in your body during a 3-month period.
11294269 tn?1422402907 I got my results back from the one hour glucose test. It was 170. I have to go for a 3 hour test. My. doctors office said that just because i failed the first doesn't mean ill fail the next. Is 170 really bad? If i do fail to what happens next? Im a ftm... So nervous.
7470604 tn?1396498950 You aren't allowed to eat before you're glucose test...I had to take the three hour test and they told me I couldn't eat 9 hours prior to my appointment..
Avatar f tn Anyways, been feeling off lately, so went to take a blood test. Doc said i have viral infection in my liver and also high cholesterol. Please see below for my concerns- I'm not sure what all my results mean, and was hoping could get a second opinion: -my white cell count is lower at 3.9 (normal is 4-11), and so is my lymphocytes is at 1.07 (normal is 1.5-4)- is this something to be worried about? -total protein is higher than normal at 8.4 (normal is 6.0-8.

Avatar f tn I have my glucose test on Tuesday, eek. Any advice on how I can pass this and not have to do the 3 hr test? I'll try not to eat any sweets Monday and Tuesday but this baby has me craving shakes like a mad woman!
Avatar f tn I have high cortisol, high free testosterone (436), and high c-peptide. Normal glucose of 87. I’m also having problems with weight loss. More specifically muscle loss. There are also other abnormalities in my blood tests and I have a history of high platelets and chronic UTI’s. A few months ago I also had some liver enzymes that came back high but have since normalized. If anyone could please point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it!
Avatar f tn I go for mine on Tuesday and was told not to drink it eat anything sugary an hour before I drink it. And depending on flavor you have, the orange is not bad as long as it's cold. And from what I've read you drink it and have your blood drawn roughly an hour later to see how your body handles the sugar.
1096641 tn?1271707225 1. Fasting: First thing in the morning b4 eating or drinking any colored liquids 8-10 hours prior. Normal levels are 70-99 mg/dl. 2. B4 each meal to get a baseline measurement 3. Two-three hours after each meal to see how the foods you ate affects your blood glucose. Normal levels are <180 mg/dl. Ask your Endo for he/she may want to see <140 mg/dl. [< means less than] Keep a written log of your test results and of the foods you ate. Stop eating foods that raise your glucose levels.
Avatar f tn The tech told me the results would in the next day. So the day after my test, I called my doctor's office & the nurse gave me the results.
