Avatar n tn Your target goals should be under 100 for your fasting blood sugar and under 140 for your post prandials (two hours after meal). Some people adhere to under 120 for post prandials. It's important to say these are targets and that you won't always succeed, but if you are not hitting them more of the time than not than you need to alter something in your treatment regimen (diet, weight loss, exercise, oral meds or insulin).
Avatar n tn I am doing fertility testing and just found out my fasting glucose and insulin. Glucose was 109 and inulin was 4. From what i've read the 109 means that I am pre-diabetic, although still in the "normal" range - just not the "healthy" range. It seems from what I've read that the insulin level of 4 is low. Is that true? What do these numbers mean?
Avatar n tn my blood sugar is 245 b4 bed how do I lower it quickly to a range that is comfortable?
Avatar f tn I am also having trouble with low blood sugar. My blood sugar goes from 44 to 255. I know normal is 80-120 . At the Diabetes clinic they said if mine dropped from 50-70 to take gluclose tabs, 8, but my body is reacting like a normal one. I take 4 at 44 which is life threatening low. I also notice that lately it's dropping after I eat which I don't understand. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/621786'>Blood sugar drops after eating</a>.
Avatar f tn Frances. Normal blood sugars are always on the range of 70 - 120. Your sugars are dangerously high. At 480 you should hoi to the er. Your metformin and glipicide are not working. Aft this point you need to be on insulin. This should be basal-bolus type regime with both long and short acting insulin. Go back to your Dr. If you're doctor won't purr you on insulin and manage your diabetes mute aggressively you need a brew Dr.
Avatar f tn This would involve evaluation of c-peptide, antibodies, and insulin levels correlated with blood sugar levels. Type 1 is lack of insulin (and needs injected insulin), Type 2 is plenty of insulin, but there is insulin resistance and the insulin is not effective. For Type 2, oral meds may be appropriate. If it is adult onset type 1, it may develop quickly. Therefore, I suggest your read up on syptoms of both type 1 and type 2 and if you develop symptoms then you must go to your Dr.
Avatar f tn Those who do not take mealtime insulin can keep their carb intake within a range designated by their healthcare team in order to manage blood sugar levels optimally.
Avatar f tn i have kept blood sugar readings within range until recently. i continue to watch my carb intake, but my blood sugar readings are higher than normal. my A1c was 7.9 so i have been paying a lot more attention to intake.
Avatar m tn Take your insulin, then eat your dinner, then test your blood sugar 2 hours after starting to eat dinner. Your blood sugar should ideally not be higher than 40 units above your predinner number (ie. 140). Don't eat anything further (unless you go low early) and then test again at 3 and 5 hours. If you are low by 5 hours you will need to take a lower dose of insulin the next evening - reduce by say 2 units.
Avatar f tn And regarding my son, 12 and 18 are not sugar fasting and pp, its insulin fasting and pp..and these insulin levels r more than the range. So why his insulin levels r above the range n his pp sugar is also less than fasting.
Avatar f tn m assuming he is a Type 1 diabetic and on insulin? How is his blood sugar the rest of the time? In range? He needs to test first thing in the morning and two hours after each meal. How does he determine his mealtime dose of insulin; does he use an Insulin: Carb ratio? If he is going low at night he might need a snack or he might need to reevaluate his basal dose.

956931 tn?1271636169 re insulin resistant (insensitive to insulin), the pancreas has to produce bigger amounts of insulin to keep your blood sugar in the normal range. Too much insulin is called hyperinsulinemia. It lowers treatment success.
Avatar n tn You cannot buy insulin over the counter without a prescription, nor can you buy syringes needed to inject insulin without a prescription. So you first need to go see your doctor. I would do blood tests before each meal and at bedtime each day until your doctor's appointment and write down the numbers that you get on your glucometer.
Avatar m tn #30 is too low. You want to keep your blood sugar in the 70 - 120 range (ideally middle of this range if you can). You may actually need to reduce your lantus dose (properly tested to ensure the right basal dose) and then use fast acting / bolus to cover you foods.
Avatar n tn Here are some basic steps to control your blood sugar without medication. Whether or not they'll mean you can go off the Metformin will be up to you and your healthcare provider. Good luck! http://www.medhelp.org/diabetes/articles/10-Ways-to-Sidestep-Diabetes/188?
Avatar f tn It really depends if u need insulin or pills, if you cant control your blood sugar then you take pills if your blood sugar is not high. But if normally your fasting numbers are high then thats why they put you on insulin. I have a coworker that went straight to insulin and shes a diabetic now but her numbers were crazy high like in the 500 when she did the glucose test. The doc just prob know that pills wont help you.
Avatar m tn When the production of insulin is low, you will have sugar trapped in the blood stream. when you test your blood sugar using the glucometer, the number you see reflects on how much sugar is trapped in the blood stream. hope this is what you are looking for! if you are looking for something more, please be more specific with your question.
Avatar f tn Yes, alcohol affects blood sugar level - Each and Every time it's consumed. that being said, High blood sugar and high blood alcohol content would be 2 separate elements measured in Your blood. 80% of the alcohol from EVERY drink goes directly to the blood stream and, THAT is why You have high blood alcohol content. Four drinks would put everyones' blood alcohol above the legal limit Alcohol is harmful to the body - as is diabetes.
Avatar f tn Give yourself the advantage of knowing what your blood sugar is and how various foods influence it and if it is out of range treat it with something. I wish you luck.
Avatar f tn Two and a half months ago I went to my dr for a routine check up and she did a CBC and also checked my blood sugar. My fasting sugar was 103 the first time and 110 the second visit. My hbA1c was 5.8 She said I have "pre-diabetes" and sent me to a nutrionist. The nutritonist gave me a glucose meter so I could check my bs after meals and fasting. After two months of excercise and diet change I have lost 15lbs.
Avatar m tn You need to do basal testing (you can google this) to determine what your correct dose of long acting insulin is to bring your fasting and back ground blood sugar close to normal (normal fasting blood sugar is 80 - 95 range). Then you need to calculate your carb-insulin dose to get the correct dose of insulin to cover what you eat. Are you taking metformin / Glucophage, as well? it may help reduce insulin resistance.
Avatar n tn I am a diabetic and a nurse. Usually low blood sugar happens when a person is on insulin or an oral hypoglycemic medicine (a medication that lowers blood sugars). People will say that their blood sugar is low if they have not eaten in a while or that their blood sugar has dropped if they have eaten a very sugary food and their blood sugar had been up a little bit.
Avatar f tn hi! was wonderin if ne1 cud help me... am actually here 4 my dad. he's 54 & has been a diabetic for several years now. recently we've found that his blood sugar has been fluctuating like crazy. there have even been instances where d range has been as low as 40 with no other side effects whatsoever. have heard that when blood sugar drops so low there should be other symptoms ranging from shivering to loss of consciousness but he's experienced none of these.
Avatar f tn Prior to taking the Prednisone my blood sugar levels were good, within the normal range. I find that now that I have been weaned off the Prednisone, approximately fifteen days now, my blood sugar readings have not returned to the normal range as prior to taking the Prednisone. I am within an acceptable weight range and exercise 45 minutes every day.
