Blood sugar test fasting coffee

Common Questions and Answers about Blood sugar test fasting coffee


Avatar n tn Every body is difference, and perhaps yours has an unusual reaction to coffee. Have you tried decaf and seen how your blood sugar does? Have you tried just straight black coffee, no cream or sugar? You might want to experiment a little, to see if it's the caffeine that''s the culprit, and if it is, you might want to give it up. Good luck with the sleuthing.
Avatar f tn Glad you posted, you should be alarmed. Also understand that most PCP's are not well trained with diabetes prevention and care. No fault of your current doctor it's just not in their forte. Probably why no information was provided to you on what to do about it. A diabetes doctor is called an Endocrinologist. "Had bloodwork done 2 weeks ago, my blood sugar level is do I deal with this?

180395 tn?1287497597 Ask your doctor to test your glucose (blood sugar) with an OGTT (oral fasting glucose and an A1c test. What you're exhibiting is Hypoglycemia, low glucose levels where your body (pancreas & liver) are not producing the right amount of insulin. Dropping below 60 mg/dl leads to drowsy/fatigue conditions. Below 40 mg/dl is considered dangerous to the point of coma. Most OTC glucose meters need calibration to the test strip, some do not, and some are plain inaccurate.
Avatar n tn Next time you get a rx for tx blood work ask your doc to add the 'A1C' test. The results give you a blood sugar reading that is expressed as a number which reveals your blood sugar over the past 3 month span. If you take the A1C when they do a CBC keep in mind it's a 'fasting' test. Go in the AM.
Avatar n tn The levemir is not dosed based on your blood sugar at the time of dosing. It is based on your fasting blood sugar and your before eating blood sguars (assuing that your humalog dose is sufficient and you are not going terribly high after meals - which you could if your humalog is not enough).
Avatar f tn hello glucose level is 217 and fasting sugar level is may i know if my condition is too severe or mild in terms of diabetes??? plz let me know my condition....thank u...
Avatar n tn My doctor discourages blood glucose testings -- says that's only necessary if I were on insulin. However, I will occasionally check my blood sugar -- maybe once or twice a month or if I'm not feeling well. I checked it on Sunday and found it was running somewhat high. Just for the heck of it, I checked it when I went to bed and it was 336 around 10 p.m. I happened to wake up at 3 a.m. to use the restroom and thought I would check it again since it was kind of high when I went to bed.
1778927 tn?1381882347 Unless this continues to happen, at which point you should see your doctor as soon as possible, bring it up to him/her the next time you see them. I would recommend you have a fasting blood glucose done and make sure you ask for an A1C test! That will tell your doctor what your gluscose levlels have been for several weeks as ONE reading is not enough for any kind of accurate diagnosis. If you are use to eating in the morning, don't skip it even if you're not feeling hungry.......
88793 tn?1290230777 I think it is impossible for 2 cups of white coffee without sugar can raise the blood sugar so much! Just too scare to do another blood glucose test. Any one has those experience or come across those symptoms? Could some one give me an idea what should I do next?
3206391 tn?1345551998 He said it was most likely from drinking black coffee before the blood was drawn. I remember my ex was told he could have black coffee before the blood was drawn years ago. Have they changed their view on this?
749963 tn?1298041594 My mom is a diabetic and wanted to test my sugar. My blood level was 167, prior to testing I had nothing to eat my last meal was coffee around 10 am and we tested around 3:00.
Avatar m tn Hi I have been looking at your posts the last few days and seems you are always having very high sugars, that are not going down. You also mentioned that your sugars are usually above 220. Your current medicine is not working sufficiently to control your blood sugars. Target blood sugar fasting is < 95. Ideally in the 80s. Target post eating is < 140. You blood sugar is more than double normal and this is doing damage to your body.
Avatar n tn You need to test your blood sugar on a regular basis, fasting plus two hours after various meals to see how food affects you. You want to be 100 or under fasting and under 140 two hours after your meal. You need to work with your doctor or a diabetic educator to get a program of treatment to accomplish these goal blood sugars.
Avatar f tn Like yogurt and other carb laden snacks mfg's add sugar for flavor. This can come in refined sugar, cane sugar, corn syrup, or carb sugar, etc. Carb sugar means every 7 grams equals one heaping Tablespoon of refined sugar [nasty]. In reality there really isn't a need for late night snacking as you're only satisfying a mental craving. If temptation is too strong at least try not to snack 2-3 hours before bedtime. You can also do yourself a favor by losing some excess poundage.
Avatar f tn I usually have 2 cups of coffee with flavored creamer, no sugar. The past 2 days, I had hot chocolate around 8 am as well and started to feel yucky after that. Any ideas? I don't have my latest test results back (TSH, Free T3 and Free T4) but I should have them tomorrow. I go to see a new Endo on Monday. What kind of questions should I ask? Thanks!
Avatar m tn Hello, as you are vegetarian and most vegetarian foods are carbs, it can be difficult to control blood sugar just by reducing carbs. Your HBA1c is increasing and your fasting blood sugar is well above normal. From your HBA1C I think your sugars are also high the rest of the day. Normal HBA1C should be 4.3 - 4.6 (non diabetic) and for persons with diabetes should be as close to normal as possible and ideally < 6.0. Ideally fasting blood sugar is < 95 (ideally 80s).
Avatar m tn So I should think the quick drop is normal. The question is how high is your fasting blood sugar and do you ever show symptoms of low-blood sugar. By the way, some people can control type II diabetes with diet alone. If while on your diet your blood sugar starts dropping too fast, see your doctor. He/She may want to reduce your medication.
Avatar f tn So, will it elevate the blood sugar of someone who has no insulin/sugar impairments or only someone who does? It's my understanding that a "normal" person's blood sugar would not have gone up to 149 an hour after eating that bread because their body would've taken care of it before it got that high. Is that correct?
Avatar m tn Thats not correct, eating before a cholesterol test will raise cholesterol and Blood sugar. But if he was looking for post meal numbers that is one thing and if he was looking for fasting numbers that is something else. the two are NOT the same. That is why I said ask the MD.
Avatar f tn Please get his HbA1C done from a pathology lab and let me know. I also need his current fasting and post prandial blood sugar. For the time being please allow him to continue with the current medications. Metformin now needs to be 1000 mg twice daily along with Amaryl 4 mg before breakfast once a day.
Avatar f tn dumb post by doctor you don't need a test because you know its Sugar ! I know i have the same problem .The question is how do you solve the sugar problem because everything has sugar in it. i went to lots of Doctor and all they give you is a pill that makes you sleep . Doctors won't get to the problem they like to hand out pills because they don't know them selves so let me know when you find the cure.
Avatar n tn I have undergone several tests to find the root of my fatigue. Sleep test ruled out sleep apnea. Most blood tests are normal. One thyroid test pointed to the pituitary: TSH was not raised (0.86 mIU/L) in conjunction with a low FT4 (8.2 pmol/L). ACTH, prolactin, FSH & LH tests at that time were normal so my doc didn't follow up. B12 & ferritin have both been low in the past, but supplementation didn't help my morning exhaustion.
Avatar f tn Any good doctor would question a blood glucose level above normal limits, and talk with the patient -- were you fasting? Did you have coffee that morning? Do you use sugar in your coffee? It is a sign of our times that doctors do not have these discussions with patients who fail a UDT. Your result, positive for cocaine, is what is known as a "false positive" result.
Avatar n tn And I planned these tests for the new year vacation. As a precaution I ran a urine sugar test and blood glucose tests and for my great surprise both were high. I managed to get rid of my urine glucose within days, but my glucose in blood is taking longer , it is getting lower but at lower rate and I am now at 160 mg for my random tests I feel I am close to normal, Developing a strategy is more important to me.
956931 tn?1271639769 And of course, sugar and hidden sugar/corns syrups etc. Fasting sugar should be 125 mg/dL. Non of these values mean much with one test, but if repeated tests show problems, it’s time to address this. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2003; it’s not something you want to deal with if it can be avoided. Plus, insulin resistance can be a negative factor for managing HCV/achieving SVR. It can be done, but it makes it more difficult.
Avatar f tn All cortisol tests should be done - in the morning - fasting - and NO coffee until test is done. average blood serum testing should be ranged as - 19-23 am 7-12 afternoon 4-6 evening.
131073 tn?1252454452 1-2 teaspoons of sugar or honey 1/2 cup of regular soda 5-6 pieces of hard candy Glucose gel or tablets (take the amount noted on the package to add up to 15 grams of carbohydrate) 1 cup of milk Test your blood sugar again in 15 minutes. If it is still below 70 mg/dl, eat another 15 grams of carbohydrate.
