Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes glucose log


Avatar f tn Use your home meter to test your glucose levels. If you're having memory issues start a log - date/time/dose - so you have something to reference in the future.

I have tried Lantus 3 times now I'm back on NPH and it normal sometimes but I still suffer from lows at night and highs in the morning. Now Im really upset because I'm getting married in Nov. 2006 and I have been dieting 5 months now I have tried weight watchers, exercising 6 times a week now I'm doing low carbs and out of 6 months i have only losed 5 lbs.
873325 tn?1295465496 Recently I have randomly checked her and once it was 198 ( 2 hrs after breakfast) and another day it was 215 ( about an hour after eating a piece of licorice). Her doctors have checked a few different times for diabetes, but they assure me that this is not the problem. I just feel like they aren't seeing the whole picture. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn Hi I have been diagnosed as glucose intolerance have lost 31/2 stone in weight since April and have now started with thirst. Should I go back to doctors am I transforming to Type II diabetes?
Avatar f tn Ugh! This morning my doctor called me to let me know that my Glucose test came up high....He said the would like to see it under 140 and mine was 170...I was so bummed. I was hoping it was cause i ate before the test but the doctor told me too. He said I could have breakfast like two eggs and so i did maybe that made my test high.....Now I have to make an appt. for the 3hour glucose test.....I hope I don't have gestational diabetes that scares me....
Avatar n tn I have been using a glucose meter that I was prescribed and there are days where my glucose have been what I consider to be normal, then there are days where I will run low an hour after meals or in the middle of the night.
194838 tn?1303432144 Hi, I am still quite new to diabetes and have been put on the drug Byetta, I am already taking metformin . My Doctor has given me a glucose monitor to take test s randomly. When would be the best times to test? and also what sort of numbers should I be looking for that are ok?. I am from the UK and we don,t seem to get much info here. Any advice would be great, thanks very much.
Avatar f tn I would recommend that you resume checking your blood glucose. Keep a log of your blood sugar and your diet. If you notice your sugar spiking and your symptoms returning with certain foods then you have your answer. If you resume controlling your diet and feel better, then you also have an answer. Gestational diabetes does usually resolve after the birth of the baby, however, this is not usually immediate. The symptoms can persist for a period of time. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I an 24 weeks and 3 days. I failed my first glucose test and now i did the three hire one and Dr just called and said i failed it too. Now I'm having to go to get my blood drawn twice a week and they put me on a diet where i can barely eat anything. Is there anyone else that is going through this or had it I the past? If so how long did you have to get the twice a week blood draws and did diet alone help or did they give you pills or insulin shots.
Avatar n tn My 30 year old son has had type 1 diabetes since the age of 17. He has had three episodes with high sugar levels from infections and each time has been hospitalized and put in ICU. This week something different happened. He woke up from a nap and his blood sugar was low. When he went to the kitchen for juice, he let out a scream and collapsed and began to have a seizure.
Avatar m tn Also, be sure to keep a journal of your results. Most glucose meters come with a log book. If you don't have one, ask your doc, or, you can print one from the internet. I like this one, although the printing process is a little complicated: http://www.diabetes-support.org.uk/info/?page_id=122 Just google "printable blood glucose log (or diary/journal)", you'll find all kinds of choices. Hope that helps.
Avatar f tn Just because your parents have diabetes, doesn't mean you have gestational disbetes. Gestational diabetes occur in pregnancy. I don't remember the cut off score but i failed by 8 points. I took the 3 hour one and passed.
490398 tn?1319944317 This is NOT a fasting glucose. My dad is diabetic and he has all of the tools to test blood. He has regular diabetes not Type 2 but it usually skips a generation. I had blood taken at the doctor last week, again, not fasting, for other health problems and it came back at 169. My doc obviously wants to retest me when I've been fasting and get an A1c.
Avatar f tn Am going same thing you are my baby is measuring small so i go to a fetal specialist every week i have gestitional diabetes started seeing a doctor for that too i have to take my blood levels log them 4 times a day its scary but dont worry as long as they say your baby is okay the doctor tells me that they trying to keep my baby in me as long as they can.. just pray and relax i know is hard i get depressed at times..
Avatar f tn Go get an ice cream sundae or something. I have gestational diabetes and it really *****. You need to keep a log of everything you eat and you're only allowed to eat so many carbs at each meal. You'll be told to eat 3 meals and 3 snacks in between and you will be testing your blood sugar at least 4 times a day.
Avatar f tn I have noticed that around lunch time it starts to shoot up from normal of 110 to 250 within an hour and even without / before any new food or bevereage intake - that is glucose rises around 1 PM without any new meal being yet taken in. So I have to take insulin - 12 unit of quick acting Humalog. In the evening it does not shoot up by itself. Only after dinner, it goes up from around 115 to 200 and then return by itself to normal in three hours time.
9971658 tn?1407747583 Try and stay positive. Gestational diabetes can be quite common. Avoid excess sugar and carbohydrates. Lots of water. Try not to eat processed foods they usually have hidden sugars.
Avatar m tn I a diabetes since 12 years. I started taking insulin since 5 months.Details are as follows. Insulin= Mixard (30/70) - dosage- morning 40 and evening 25.along with Glucophage 1000 mg one each morning and evening. After this treatment my sugar level is 120 in fasting and 170 after taking food(2 hours after food) and my randam sugar is 175.My (HbA1c)(three months test is 7.9.
Avatar n tn I understand there is controversy concerning diuretics for blood pressure treatment and glucose levels. By how much should 12.5 mg or 25 mg of Thiazide diuretics cause blood sugar to rise? If ones potassium levels remain good is this less of a problem? If thiazides increase glucose levels, would this level of increase reverse if the thiazide treatment is suspended?

279415 tn?1217375230 Well the results of my 3 hour glucose test are in.....I FAILED. Apparently i have gestational diebetes. I dont know anyone who has ever had this so if any of you have i'd appreciate any insight you might have on the issue. I cant believe this, this week has been horrible one, thing right after another with this pregnancy, thank god its friday. i wont get to see my doctor until my sechuduled appointment on the 3rd since she is away. So right now i am kinda just in limbo.
338920 tn?1195643836 She also has high blood pressure and diabetes. Does anyone have any advice for us? Will diabetes make tx harder for her and should she do different things during tx? I know the doctor will answer these questions, but I'm so worried about my wife, that I'd like to hear some words from people who have been there.
299260 tn?1304219705 diet, meds, etc. Because I'm on strict bedrest, I won't be able to exercise, so may be taking insulin or other meds.... Pre-pregnancy I was hypoglycemic (low blood sugar), so it surprises me that I could go all the way to the opposite end of the spectrum, but I'm not really concerned about me. I'm wondering what effects this could have on my babies, if anyone knows.
808221 tn?1242747788 The typical diet high in sugar and processed foods only adds fatigue, creates cardio issues, and raises glucose levels which in turn brings about diabetes. Here are some tips to help control and lower your glucose: 1. Cut out sugar and processed foods. It’s the most important and hardest thing to do. Eat more fruits and veggies instead. Skip desert, period. Stop munching. Its not too late start eating better. 2. Eat a better breakfast.
Avatar f tn The endocrinologist they followed up with said his case was not the norm and was odd. (His A1c was 5.0) They were told to keep a log of his blood sugars for a couple of months. Over that time, he has had maybe 3 lows, but, a number of counts over 100 (a few over 200). He is now awaiting a continuous blood glucose monitor to wear for a few days. Anyway............the endocrinologist says he's not ready to diagnose him diabetic "yet", but, feels he is starting on that path.
798555 tn?1292791151 I exercise, don't drink soda, have balanced diet and am in good shape weight-wise low BMI, so I'm lost as to what to do next in order to keep my fasting glucose under 100. My A1C was 5.7 My fasting glucose for the last two years is between 95 and 108, was tested about 6,7 times. Doc just says good exercise and diet. I do that! 1)What is a simple recommended diet to keep blood sugar low? I eat vary basic, would like to keep this as simple as possible.
Avatar f tn 11 mmol/L) or more (in the presence of diabetes symptoms). # A plasma glucose value of 126 mg/dl (7 mmol/L) or more. # An oral glucose plasma glucose value of 200 mg/dl (11.11 mmol/L) or higher at 2 hours post-glucose load. taken from http://www.dlife.com/dLife/do/ShowContent/type1_information/diagnosis/diagnosis.html With the symptoms you have and your blood glucose levels (assume you washed hands before testing) you should see your doctor as soon as possible.
402504 tn?1242000124 If you see glucose levels after meals going above the mid-140's, I would insist that his doctor run more tests for diabetes. A good doctor will listen to parents, and your written log of tests would be good evidence that things are not OK if they are running out of the normal 70-146 or so ranges.
885961 tn?1249583403 I have really gotten my diabetes under control these last 2 months. It was very hard but I am finding that I dont miss the carbohydrates as much. I never thought I could eat a meal without having bread. I also never thought I could stop eating Pasta at least 1-2 times a week but I have really got this under control. I just need to keep it up. My last visit at the doctor was great, she was very impressed with my number for my A1C.
