Blood sugar rates

Common Questions and Answers about Blood sugar rates


Avatar n tn I am now taking Levemir in the morning and at night taking Apidra. Since I have changed to this insulin my blood sugar is going upby alot. I was at 176 this morning and within a few hours it was at 296. This has never happened before and I have not changed anything in my eating. Why is it going up so much and how can I make this stop?
Avatar n tn The first few times it happened she was just slightly jerking and we were able to get her to sit up, drink some juice and get her blood sugar up. I lowered her basal rates for the sleeping in times and we have made it mandatory she is up by 10am. Things got better. However last night she had a slight high (in the 200's) and we think she overdid the insulin. This morning at around 8am my husband heard her bed making noise and went to check on her.

Avatar n tn Since the beginning of this summer we have been dealing with night time low blood sugar while she sleeps. Most of the time we catch it and give her something to correct it but more times than not 4 to be exact she has woke up in the morning feeling nauseated, headache and sometimes throwing up yet her bloods sugars are showing normal to the 200's when we test her. One of the times she had to go to the hospital.
Avatar m tn Many discussions here on HCV, high blood sugar, IR, type II Diabetes. Here's an interesting article adding to the growing body of knowledge that suggest a significant downside of over-treatment.. Obviously, these are important conditions and hopefully people will neither be under or over-treated and will seek out the best available medical advice as well as stay on top of the topic themselves to challenge their doc's knowledge as appropriate.
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? Do you still experience the low blood sugar levels and decreased heart rates? Blood sugar below 70 mg/dL is considered low and can harm you. Your hypoglycemia may be due to your body's sugar is used up too quickly such as exercising more or at a different time than usual among other things. If you are diabetic, this may also be due to your medications. On the contrary, low blood sugar causes fast heartbeat ( ref:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
Avatar n tn So, my question is this, I've heard that 1U of insulin will generally lower your blood sugar between 20-25 points(at least thats what my endocrinologist told me). I know that number may even vary more from person to person based on alot of factors. But, does that sound fairly accurate? The reason I ask is, up until recently(last few months), I was a couch potato.
390388 tn?1279639813 Stick with whole grains and high fiber which helps regulate blood sugar. People don't realize how important that is but if you start reading labels you will be shocked at how much refined flours and sugar is in EVERYTHING. No wonder type 2 diabetes is an epidemic! Sugar has many other names on labels that people don't recognize.
Avatar f tn there is a risk to sugar, I have counted many many posts on her related to Diabetes and the rates of type 2 diabetes in children have been sky rocketing - it used to only occur in seniors, they used to call it "old age diabetes" 1 coke = 150% daily allowance of sugar according to the WHO
Avatar m tn What about all the fat that's often paired with sugar in our favorite treats? And what about salt, which is linked to high blood pressure, edema, etc. One thing about soda --- if you can clean your battery cables with soda, imagine what it's probably doing to your stomach. Nearly everything we eat is harmful, if we eat enough of it, so taxing sugary drinks is only a drop in the bucket towards taxing unhealthy foods, or ending obesity.
220090 tn?1379170787 If any pharma producer is going to prove that their drug is working some controls have to be in place to get rid of bias in the part of the observer and the observed. People have to be blinded. That is how the world has proven that even "nothing" (sugar pill) can treat an illness if one or more people believe it can cure or help (placebo effect is REAL!). We take part in the trial because our life is shot and we want an early chance to get better, or a chance to speed up a cure.
Avatar n tn is that even with the best control there are going to be moments when there is too much insulin or sugar present in the blood affecting the person getting the blood.That was many years ago i was told that, about 20 or so years. i do agree with the comments in that you've got to do some work on reducing your A1C number. Don't take me wrong, Lord knows i've not always been perfect. But start to read a little more about accepted diabetes care and start to work towards that.
Avatar n tn About 10% of the time he will think he is low and he will be at 150 or something near that range and I believe that maybe he had a sudden drop in blood sugar casuing him to have the same sensation as being low. The only thing that ever has clued my son into feeling high is having his eyes feeling very tired, so when he feels this way, he tests and there are many times he was not high, just very tired.
390388 tn?1279639813 I'm guessing so if you are checking your blood sugar levels. Being diabetic and having lots of heart trouble and high blood pressure issues myself, I can tell you that a fasting glucose reading of 200 would get my attention in a New York minute. Your arteries are becoming inflamed at that reading and you will start to experience high blood pressure as well as be at risk for blood clots in your heart arteries.
Avatar n tn I have just switched from Mixtard/Actrapid to Lantus/Actrapid 3 days ago due to very poor blood sugar control at night and in the morning. The current dosage of Lantus is 15 units in the morning with additional 15 units of Actrapic before evety meal i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner. Blood sugar level in the morning shoots up to 15-16mmol (fasting), by noon it will remain at 9-12mmol (before lunch) and will gradually comes down to 4-5mmol before dinner.
193177 tn?1218694001 Insulin is needed to move glucose (blood sugar) into cells, where it is used for energy. If glucose does not get into the cells, the body cannot use it for energy. Too much glucose will then remain in the blood, causing the symptoms of diabetes. There are several types of diabetes. This article focuses on type 2, which is usually accompanied by obesity and insulin resistance.
306259 tn?1204773075 Urine test was fine. Blood work showed HIGH WBC. All previous blood work (when she had no fever) showed normal WBC. Do any of you get these unexplained fevers? Other issue: She has to have blood flow issues because her skin will have dark red blotchy areas (mainly on shoulders, arms, & chest) and her feet will be purple/gray in color after standing still for just a few mins. Does anyone have any insight on blood flow with autonomic disorders and how that is treated?
Avatar f tn Patients may develop large increases in triglycerides and cholesterol, diabetes, high blood sugar, changes in body fat, increased bleeding in people with hemophilia, allergic reactions, and/or changes in heart rhythm. Patients may develop signs and symptoms of infections that they already have after starting anti-HIV medicines.

1103360 tn?1258313199 I have type II diabetes and am on medication for it in the highest dose I can take without going to insulin. My highest blood sugar rates are when I wake up in the mornings. I have taken off 80 lbs. hoping it would help the situation and it is now worse. I thought this would be my answer. Anyone have any clues?
Avatar f tn My heart was racing at 150 bpm and Blood pressure was 150/100. I am a healthy 32yr old female 5 foot1 127lbs. I don't drink, smoke or do drugs. Overall my health is great. The heart situation was found to be heart palpitations. I looked over all my blood work and noticed a few odd things. My WBC was fine at 9.04 but then my RBC was 4.32. I know these are in normal range but the RBC is almost on the low side. Next my Neut % auto is 81.70 High, I have a low Eos % Auto @ 0.
Avatar f tn Also, you may have simply had a palpitation, which we ALL get from time to time, and now your anxiety is out of control causing other issues. Anxiety can definitely raise your blood pressure, cause heart palps and accelerated heart rates. Then it becomes a vicious cycle.........

Avatar n tn its not blood blisters,its a blood vessel under the skin like your vein pops and then there is a bruise for about 2 days then it goes away
Avatar m tn Hi all ! I am a 28 years old guy , 5 ft 7 inches and 160 pounds , I tracked my blood pressure and pulse for 5 days and found following results Day Bp Pulse Rate Day 1 140/90 , 62/min Day 2 130/90 , 58/min Day 3 110/85 , 44/min Day 4 130/90 , 56/min Day 5 140/90 , 60/min I am not an athlete , infact i dont even do a mild exercise , i am married and living a fairly stress-less life . what could be the possible reason of this relatively high bp and low pulse rate ?
Avatar n tn I made some changes to my diet, started walking almost every day, made sure that I was drinking water more frequently and upon a friend's suggestion stopped taking the pill for diabetes. In the subsequent two blood test over a period of six months, my sugar levels were normal. During my next visit, I confessed to the doctor I stopped taking the diabetes pill. The doctor was not overly surprised and was happy that my sugar levels were under control.
Avatar m tn After a painfull surgery, I start having a very weird arrhytmia problem as well as high blood pressure. It was 8 months ago. Before that surgery, I always had a normal blood pressure with fast pulse rate because of the anxiety. Since the last 8 months, I start experiencing strange heart pulse rate (mostly low pulse rate when I get anxious, insistead of the high pulse rate that I had before).
Avatar f tn t hat your rates and blood pressure seems just fine... my blood pressure was about 95/55 during my pregnancy up until the last few weeks... the heart rate .. well.. that seems retty normal as well.. when you have your next appointment.. bring it up to your doc.. the heart rate during pregnancy does go up.. i can remember with my first pregnancy.. my heart rate was around the same... my doctor at that time was not concerned... what was your blood pressure BEFORE your pregnancy?
Avatar n tn My first question is did you have a Ha1c ( a blood test that can check your blood sugar levels over the last 3 months)? Because you've lost the wt., you may have widely fluxulating blood sugar levels that can cause your symptoms. Also, did you have your T3 and T4 levels checked along with your TSH when you had your thyroid hormones checked. Sometimes they can be out of whack when you TSH looks normal.
