Common Questions and Answers about Blood sugar levels chart canada


Avatar n tn I went to my family MD and explained the symptoms and he drew blood to check levels. On my return visit It was explained to me that my testosterone levels were low..well below 100 ng/dl. So he started treatment with a T replacement Gel. Three months later we checked my levels again. I had seen no and felt very little improvement since my last visit and was concerned for my health. changes...infact my T levels were lower.
Avatar n tn The really good news is that as low as your level is, you should be able to completely control your blood sugar levels by diet - simply eliminate some of the sweets and starches - assuming that you have some degree of self control. Unfortunately, this problem is one side effect of PCOS; my own blood work was done because of those repeatedly missed ovulations I mentioned on another thread. The doctor wanted to check this issue as well.
446896 tn?1237806342 I know I am not the only one who absolutely freaks out when having my blood pressure taken. Every time I go to the Dr's office, they always comment on how high my pulse and blood pressure are (last week when I went it was 127/92 and pulse of 133!) Ha...and those numbers arent even unusual for me! I know the pulse is high, but I don't worry about it as much just because I take it frequently at home now, and know that it is usually in the 80's when I'm at home. But the blood pressure...ugh!
Avatar n tn i had sexual intercourse about 7 or 8 times before seeing a doctor. the same occurred except for 2 times, in which no blood appeared. but the majority of times blood came out in the sperm, or only after ejaculation during urination, or both in the sperm and the urine. once i woke up without having had sex that week and urinated blood. i tested my blood, sperm, and urine and the only abnormality was a high psa level. my dr said it is very rare and is that high in 40/50 year old.
335728 tn?1331418012 Artificial sweeteners, including saccharine, cyclamates, and aspartame, don't turn into glucose and therefore don't raise blood sugar levels. Because of this many people assume they can only help with weight control. If you look back on our discussion .... you may perceive how these sweeteners could actually stimulate weight gain.
Avatar f tn This sounds like you might be having some blood sugar issues going on. Do you have access to a glucometer? If so, you might try checking your bs before eating and then one hour after eating. Would it be possible to go see your GP to rule anything else out? You might get in a bit quicker with them. You have probably already thought of this, I don't know. So, please don't think I am insulting your intelligence.
Avatar f tn My thyroid, sugar and vitamin levels normal, and I tested negative for Lyme and Lupas. The anemia I had was gone too, with just a slight vitamin d deficiency which I am now taking a supplement for. I have read about the Lyme tests not always being accurate, but I never had a ring or noticed any bite marks. I will definitely take your advice in searching for another md and getting my chart. Thank you for that. Yes, it is very frustrating.
Avatar n tn I get intense, throbbing headaches 2 hours after eating food. The more sugar content, the more intense the headache, and the longer the headache lasts. If I eat something like a snickers bar or a piece of cake, the intensity is debilitating and the pain can last for days. Just about anything with more than a few grams of sugar gives me a headache.
Avatar m tn If you still have symptoms, your levels aren't optimal. Are you making sure you eat a good breakfast? If you don't and your blood sugar levels fall, you could get the ringing ears/dizzy feeling.
351317 tn?1204755471 Last year I had a parathyroid tumor the size of a chicken egg removed...parathyroids only control your blood calcium levels...If you have a tumor, even a pea sized one, it makes your bones give up calcium...You get symptoms of what docs call groans, psych moans and bones...You will get kidney stones, high blood pressure, joint/back pain, constipation, heart burn, fatigue, and so much more...also depression, sleep probs, blood sugar problems and constant headaches...Sound familiar?
233616 tn?1312790796 So for example, if you take a blood pressure medication that is metabolized by CYP3A4, inhibiting this enzyme with grapefruit juice may raise the levels of the blood pressure med in your blood and IN YOUR LIVER....and it can cause an overdose (and your blood pressure to go down too low). So if you want to lower your viral load by drinking grapefruit juice, you'll need to make sure that you're not taking any meds that are metabolized by CYP450.

Avatar f tn Mercury poisoning causes the body to store very high levels of copper due to inactivation of metallothionine in the gut. Once the copper levels rise high enough they are no longer bio available to the body. Copper is nature's fungicide. Bio unavailable copper causes yeast overgrowth. Consumption of high sugar foods ( like energy drinks among many other sources) acidifies the body rendering it a fertile environment for yeast to flourish.
Avatar f tn Symptom relief can then begin, however you must be on the right dose and the right med for you. Blood levels can be taken in 4 to 6 weeks to see if you are on the right track. Try to get extra sleep, as this helps speed things along. You can also take suppliments like magnesium, Omega 3, and vitamin D and a good multi. Eating correctly ( low carb. high protein, low sugar and avoid processed foods) can help too.
Avatar f tn Magnesium serum isn't accurate since the body will keep magnesium levels in normal range in the blood at the expense of the cells. If you have a severe deficiency then the body won't be able to do that. I have magnesium deficiency symptoms overnight if I eat sugar! :) I've read ferritin levels need to be at least 70 ng/mL for an extended period of time to slow hair shedding and encourage new hair growth. Optimal calcium absorption occurs with a vitamin D level greater than 79.
370801 tn?1264408618 Most of your thyroid hormone is made in the liver, so if it is sluggish, you get blood sugar issues, increased adrenaline vasoconstriction, increased homocysteine and inflammation, all the causes of aging and degeneration. Liver metabolism is a sub-set of overall metabolism, which then adds the realms of adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism, bringing with it electrolyte imbalances, cholesterol and fatty acid synthesis blockages, pregnenolone wasting, prolactin/cortisol, the list goes on.
Avatar m tn Fat is needed to absorb the fat soluble vitamins A, S, E, K, and prevent deficiencies of these vitamins. It provides back-up energy if blood sugar supplies run out (after 4-6 hours without food). I usually like to eat more alkaline-based foods, like fruits, veggies and salads, but I find when I’m having a colitis flare-up, I absolutely need the organic oats and grains and the live-enzyme breads first and the alkaline-based produce second.
Avatar f tn We have not had to try it yet as I have enough of the original formula to make it awhile, however, I am on lookout to see how others are doing, and you seem to fit the profile of people who are seeing such drastic differences in their labs t3 and t4 levels on the newly reformulated Nature-Throid. The t4 and t3 should be closer in range and atleast mid range or higher.
Avatar f tn Was also diagnosed with HepC in 11/07, and the blood results were that it was so low it was undectable. Also had a liver biopsy in May 08, but did not get results back yet.Add high blood pressure and high cholesterol to that. Now, since I had to have medical clearance for the hysperoscopy, the Dr took and EKG in her clinical office, and said I needed to have a stress test done. I REFUSED. She said she "thinks", from reading the EKG that something is wrong with my heart.
Avatar n tn It seems that the one big indicator of parathyroid disease is the elevated (even just slightly) blood calcium levels. I can report that as of 2 weeks ago, my blood calcium level was within the normal range, (I have the test results in front of me, I wanted a printed copy for myself!) So, it would seem that it isn't my parathyroid. But, that was a really interesting suggestion, seeing as I've never heard anybody ever mention a parathyroid. My blood pressure is always nice and normal, too.
1298409 tn?1272849802 I didn't get pregnant but my progesterone blood levels were good. The 2nd time I took the progesterone in the form of vaginal suppositories ("Cyclogest") and had to insert 1 every 8 hours and remain lying for one hour after insertsion so that it won't all ooze down automatically ( no fun). again I didn't get pregnant but when I measured my progesterone blood levels it was toooooooooooooooo low which might have been the reason I didn't get pregnant.
Avatar f tn did some blood work to check for RA and noticed my elevated levels...and they weren't very high by that time...had more blood work done and that's how I found out I had it. I think I was pretty lucky or she's pretty good.
1358341 tn?1282213443 abnormal low levels of phosphorus indicate dietary imbalance, Diabetes or overactive parathyroid gland. low levels of blood urea nitrogen can indicate Liver disease or starvation.. I am not saying that possibly you ran across something that has actually "cured" your cat but as we all know if your cat has Renal failure there is no cure only things we can give them to help and to slow down progression..
1358341 tn?1282213443 And don't know her levels in anything because blood analysis isn't complete. If there were some vitamin alimentary complement with potassium that I could be sure 100% good ? Glucosamine/chondrodin is good for arthritis: What is the name of your product ? There she woke up and went drinking. I'm very glad to have all of those advices. But I'm still lost because here in France there is not a lot of products like that for sell.
Avatar n tn I wrote the post on metamucil and weightloss but even the doctor i am seeing for the eating disorder program says i can take it and it has nothing to do with weightloss. I have no clue about weight gain but if you look on the calorie count it is very low so i would guess something else is going on in your life for your weight to be affected. I'm not a doctor but that's my guess.
Avatar n tn I would like to know if any one has used this drug to assist weight loss/sugar control and then been able to control blood sugar levels without the drug? Once you start, is it forever? I have never posted to a site like this,hope I get a response.
214901 tn?1227571155 Maybe you need a strength between 75mcg and 88mcg. "Natural" means nothing to me. "Bio-identical" means nothing to me. A medication that works means a lot. "Natural" thyroid hormones are not "bio-identical" (that means a lot to some people), nor do they contain the exact amount of T4 and T3 that a human thyroid produces. "Bio-identical" thyroid hormones are synthetic, but they are exactly the same hormones your body produces.
Avatar f tn I first went to my internist and he ran quite a few tests including blood work to see if maybe I had Rheumatoid, he then sent me to see my Rheumy. He found 16 of the 18 trigger points and by the time I got out of his office I was in horrid pain. My husband and children know and understand that I am sick, tho at times it's very difficult for them to understand the full concept of this disease. I am so sorry that you are in pain. I hope this helped you out at least a little.
Avatar n tn Treated several times with Ribaviron and Interferon, levels went down to zero and was kept on a maintenance dose. Levels went back up, still stayed on maintenance for 2 years until insurance company would not pay. I have been off everything for almost 2 yrs but still monitor levels with bloodwork. Dr. says there is a new combo of Ribaviron and Interferon and another med. Will probably try that as soon as its approved.
126702 tn?1240891850 once just wasn't enough) in Egypt while I was in Canada... all done by email !!!!
