Blood sugar fasting is 98

Common Questions and Answers about Blood sugar fasting is 98


Avatar n tn I tested my blood sugar this morning and it was 105. Would you say this is out of the normal range. I had blood work done about a month ago when I had my annual physical and my sugar level came back at 109. My doctor didn't seem to alarmed.
Avatar m tn But please let me know is this levels are of that particular night which shows in the morning or is it considered as an average level or capacity? Buy doing exercise I have reduced Postprandial blood sugar but why Fasting blood sugar is normal but on the higher side ?? How to reduce it apart from reducing carbs ??
Avatar m tn "last week i had 98 and today its 101 " I wouldn't be too concerned unless fasting glucose consistently remained between >100 mg/dl and <125 mg/dl , prediabetes. Do you know a bit of exercising helps to burn off excess glucose? "I didnt take PP as last time it was just 96" What is "PP"? Preprandial? Postprandial? Priority Precedence? Program Plan?
Avatar m tn Your fasting blood sugar is at high end of normal, but your hba1c is normal. Did you ready a lot of carbs the day before the test. You probably don't need to worry about diabetes at this point. Focus on healthy minimally processed diet, exercise, maintaining normal weight.
Avatar m tn 5.8 mml/l fasting equates to 98 which is , to me , a pre-diabetic reading, sadly and I hope that I am wrong. If you ask any doctor, except Dr. Richard Beirstein, they would tell you that you are a NON-Diabetic. Why?, to me the vast majority of doctors, even in the USA, know so little about this horrible malady called Diabetes 2. What they studied at school was 30-50 years old infos about diabetes 2.That is the main reason why treatment to diabetes 2 is not so succesful, not so effective, sadly.
Avatar m tn Fasting is your background blood sugar level. This level is important as it is your starting point for average blood sugars and hba1c. So yes, if a certain amount of carb raises your blood sugar by say 30 points. If you start at 80 and rise by 30 you are 110 and still within "safe and normal range". But if you start at 110 and rise by 30 you are at 140, which is already higher than is typically ideal.
Avatar n tn I am not diabetic, but I have been on the South Beach diet for about 12 weeks, which is a diet that greatly restricts the use of refined sugars (i.e. table sugar, fruit juice, white bread, white pasta, etc.) but encourages the use of complex carbohydrates, such a beans, whole wheat/grain products, starchy vegetables, etc. I eat small meals about every 2-4 hours. I have lost 25 pounds so far.
7058746 tn?1393439020 I failed both test. I am now monitoring my blood sugar levels to see if I need insulin. So far, so good. I have been avoiding sugar and carbs. I am going to start adding small carbs to my meal today to see if I will spike. It's only been 4 days for me. I think part of the reason I failed was because of the food I ate the day before.
Avatar f tn On the low side of normal, but nothing to be concerned with at all. It is normal for your blood sugar to rise after exercise. The levels that your sugar is rising to are again absolutely nothing to be concerned with. On a ketogenic diet, your body and your brain will mostly use ketone bodies for energy. However, your body can also break down protein to make glucose, and obviously there is some glucose in your body because your blood sugar levels are stable.
Avatar n tn HI I am 40 Years Old I smoke 20 Ciggarates a Day, I am a Non Veg By Birth i do drink occasionally. Regarding My Sugar Levels Fasting will be 98 and PPBS will be around 50 to 70 I dont know Why? My HB is 18.2 and my hematocrit is 55.8. The Pheripheral Smear Examination Shows "Relative Neutrophila" Can U Please Advice me what other Test should i undergo and what should i do to have a helathy Life.
Avatar m tn If your doctor tells you that you suffer from hypoglycemia, he must then tell you the cause because low blood sugar is the result of something going wrong in your body. It is not a cause. Your brain gets more than 98% of its energy from sugar in your bloodstream. There is only enough sugar in your bloodstream to last about three minutes, so your liver constantly releases sugar from its cells into your bloodstream.
Avatar n tn Tonight she had taco salad with shell and since we are trying to see if the blood sugar would rise. She drinked a Mt. Dew and ate a little Debbie cake. Blood sugar two hrs later was 94. She has a new meter and my sister is helping her a lot. The doctor had told her she just needed to watch and see what foods are bothering her. She is determined to watch her diet if it is diabetes but right now her blood sugar is not high. Are we missing something?
Avatar f tn But recently one of the doctors I saw gave me a glucose monitor to check my blood sugar. Every time I've checked my blood sugar it comes back around 80 - even fasting it comes back around 80. Somehow I online I came across symptoms about low blood PRESSURE - lightheadedness, especially when going from lying down to sitting up, fatigue, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, blurred vision.
1468090 tn?1289097010 My triglycerides were high good cholesterol low and bad cholesterol high blood sugar was 98 fasting and acl diabetic test showed 5.8 but when hypoglycemic are you supposed to eat carbs?? I love carbs and have had to eliminate them. Btw 6.4 is considered diabetic. And how do we know what kind we will end up with 1 or 2?
Avatar n tn But after meal my blood pressure is pretty normal (comes down actually since my normal BP is high!) but pulse rate goes up! Why?
Avatar m tn normal readings for high carb intake.. well fasting blood sugar has been as low at 67 some days, when i had lab check ups i ate two pancakes before getting blood drawn for complete blood panel etc.. well my glucose on that was 68 and i had the pancakes 1 hour before.
Avatar f tn A diagnosis of prediabetes is a fasting blood glucose level of 100 - 125 mg/dl. A fasting blood glucose level of 126 mg/dl or higher is a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. You'd have to have repeated tests to confirm the diagnosis however. CRP is an inflammatory marker. A more specific test for cardiovascular risk is high sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP). Either way, the lower the inflammation the better. Vitamin B12, vitamin D (25-Hydroxy) and ferritin could be higher.
Avatar m tn The determination for fasting blood sugar in the diabetic range is 100 for pre-diabetes and 126 for diabetes. Again, Type 1 is very sudden onset, a slow progression to pre-diabetes levels would indicate type 2. Blood sugar is not related to height and weight.
Avatar m tn Hello, your fasting is very slightly higher than optimal for the ones that are above 90, but likely you could not be diabnosed with anything from this. however, it would also be important to know whether your blood sugar goes too high after eating? You can also do a test called Hba1c, which gives average blood sugar over past 3 months. Truly normal is < 5.0.
Avatar n tn hi, I am 32 week pregnant and I have blood sugar 98 fasting and I have also done GTT with value 142. I m really scared with diabetics . what should I have to do?
1113735 tn?1273178030 Because if you were fasting then you're prediabetic. A blood sugar above 5 means pre-diabetes which can also work against treatment. If you're planning to treat again you should look into that before you start.
Avatar f tn Well I just noticed that there is a doctor on this forum so I thought it might be a good idea to give the full result of my blood test. I was told to take the test in the morning before eating. Because it is really hard for me to wake up in the morning I decided to not sleep (I have three alarms in my bedroom + my child who screams WAKE UP in my ear but nothing works... i am like semi-comatose) So, I stayed up all night; had my last meal at 2.
Avatar f tn Skiied 3 more hours and did it again diaphoretic, feeling in throat that I cant; catch my breath as after running, no chest pain. Mon went to work checked fasting sugar finger stick 104 ate and prior to lunch was 90 . B/P wa 110/70 took half hyzaar. wEnt to Dr. Monday and b/P in afternoon 98/50 dizzy, no energy and feeling in throat chest..Blood work back Tues and okay think mabye pre diabetic 104 fasting, took me off all blood press pills and no ALLI..
Avatar m tn You are absolutely correct. Fasting blood sugar can vary from day to day. If my fasting blood sugar came up at 103 on a single test I wouldn't pay any attention to it. I am hypoglycemic (reactive). My blood sugar after fasting is as high as it gets. After I eat, it drops. But a superficial look at my blood test results might have a doctor warn me about diabetes. In fact this has happened to me. One doesn't question the validity of a test, or its fallibility.
Avatar f tn Has anything changed during this time - foods you eat, medication/s [new, increased, modified], fasting and postprandial glucose [blood sugar] levels elevated than what you posted? Are you getting proper amounts of sleep? "I have even thrown-up a few times" With all your health issues it would be wise to seek medical advice. Throwing up is not a good sign. Might be worth a 30 min drive into Ft Worth for Baylor Medical Center to see an Gastroenterologist to start with.
Avatar n tn Hello, truely normal fasting blood sugar is in the low 80s. So your fasting number is truely a little high, and I think your doctor is being cautious and safe in wanting your to monitor. Hihg fasting blood sugar can precede high post eating numbers. I think getting a meter and monitroing your food and response of blood sugar toeating is a good idea. You can then make sure your numbers do stay good and take action early if they happen to rise. I am not a big fan of 'diabetic' diet.
Avatar m tn glucose : 98 mg/dL,, range(74-106) TEST2 (January 07, 2014): glucose (fasting) : 92 mg/dL,, range(<100) TEST3 (May 26, 2014): glucose : 100 mg/dL,, range(74-106) TEST4 (September 12, 2014) glucose : 75 mg/dL, range(<100) TEST 5 (September 19, 2014) glucose : 100 mg/dL, range(74-106) Based on these results, do I have pre-diabets (impaired fasting glucose)? I will be happy for feedback.
Avatar n tn It only shows that your body is not good at regulating fasting blood sugar, but is still able to manage the post eating blood sugar. If it was 80 before you ate and 70 after still not a problem (but would not like to see it regularly going below 70). I would say as long as your blood sugar is higher than 70, there is nothing to be concerned about.
Avatar m tn Also, a finger stick is much more accurate than a forearm test, as it takes longer for the blood sugar in the forearm (less blood flow), to reflect the actual blood sugar than the fingers. So testing post eating blood sugars do recommend fingers.
359574 tn?1328364024 That said, fasting glucose alone can miss cases of impaired glucose tolerance(where your fasting is fine but your blood sugars go up after eating). The best way to find out is through a glucose tolerance test. Hang in there, ask your doctor about doing a glucose tolerance test, and I think the other appointments/tests are a good idea too. If nothing shows up on the diabetes test, then perhaps a referral to a neurologist may shed some light and bring you a diagnosis. Best of luck and take care.
