Avatar n tn When my blood sugar was checked it read 30, and the nurses all looked at me and asked if I was okay, and they told me that patients here go into diabetic coma. They told me to eat something, so had a box of girl scout cookes that I had enten then after about 30 minutes or so I rechecked it and it was I think around 80. This happend all the time and after telling my doctor they did a fasting blood sugar, but it all was okay.

212161 tn?1537898045 i test my sugars at home . my dr gave me a meter because am prediabetic and wants me to test at home. so the more carbs you eat/sugar the higher it will read. so how can they say that 2 hours after you eat your sugar should rean no more than 140, i know the ideal is 120 but mine is never 120 after two hours. tonight its 152 after two hours after dinner , yes i had a roll and mac/cheese/ few baked french fries and than sugar free choc pudding. so i guess thats normal for that meal.
Avatar m tn Although hypoglycaemia can happen to people who do not have diabetes, it would be worth you seeing your doctor to check you out for diabetes. Whether your tests show that you are diabetic or not, you will need to eat small meals and healthy snacks in between to ensure that your sugar levels do not drop too low. When you go anywhere, take some food with you so that when you start to feel a hypoglycaemic attack coming on, you can eat something before it gets worse.
Avatar n tn Hi Kristin! I too, as a mom of a diabetic teen, am very anxious to have a non-invasive blood glucose monitor be approved for use (besides the Gluco-watch. I checked some internet sites and none that I could find had any new information. If you are interested in being in a study, contact your endocrinologist to see if you would be a candidate to be in one. Perhaps they could point you in the direction of finding an open study somewhere.
359574 tn?1328364024 Fat, female, 50, fatigued, very heat sensitive. Father was a type II diabetic. I have a BMI of 31. One of my sons was nearly 10 pounds at birth. I walk half an hour most days. Can walk on a flat surface forever (as long as it's cool), but one flight of stairs gets me winded. Don't smoke or drink. Lousy family history for heart disease. Recent nuclear stress test was fine. High blood pressure controlled by medicine, and Zocor for cholesterol.
Avatar n tn 2 days after surgery I started having tingling in my hands. everyday it gets worse. my feet have turned numb. I am a diabetic and have asthma. I have had this condition for 2 months now.
Avatar n tn You do sound like you may be hypoglycemic (have you been tested for that), and not diabetic. How old are you? Are we looking at juvenile or adult-onset diabetes, and have you had insulin blood tests and a glycosalated hemoglobin test to be sure you are not diabetic? Diabetes does often lead to PN, as you seem to be aware.
