Fasting blood glucose test results

Common Questions and Answers about Fasting blood glucose test results


Avatar n tn The most reliable result should be a fasting glucose done in the lab, with blood drawn from the veins, but not from capillaries in the fingers. It's not useful to just have finger picks randomly. If you have finger pick within 2 hrs after meal the result will be high even for normal people. 4 hr OGTT is not very reliable From what I've known, you can only say someone is diabetic if there is one of the following: 1. fasting plasma glucose >126 mg/dl 2.
Avatar n tn First, any prandial test (fasting and after meal) captures glucose only at test time, not yesterday, two days ago, or a three weeks ago. It really doesn't tell a doctor what is going with your glucose levels at all times of the day. Home glucose meters are good to see how well one is managing their glucose levels. Having scaled results (high to low, or normal to near high or above) calls for an A1c test to see the entire picture. An A1c test measures your glucose going back three months.
975514 tn?1324997938 I recently had a blood test, which included a glucose test. I wasn't fasting. I ate a bowl of whole grain cereal at about 5AM. My test was a 10AM. My uncle has diabetes and my sister is hypoglycemic. I know I get sick if I have a shake from McDonalds, but that's about it. I get really tired and nauseated. I don't drink sugary beverages at all just because I am always watching my weight, but I wonder now how that would effect me?
490398 tn?1319940717 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.
194838 tn?1303428544 to get labs done, especially if you have diabetes, they will most likely want to do a cholesterol test, which IS a fasting test. This test will be very good info for keeping up with your overall health. If I were you, I would just skip breakfast or lunch, whatever is closer to your app.
Avatar m tn The Blood Test was Tuesday morning. The results which were flagged as "high" were Hematocrit 52.3%", Glucose 107 mg/dl, Albumin 5.1 g/dl, A/G Ratio 2.7, Bilirubin Total 1.3mg/dl. I don't know what any of this means.
Avatar f tn I told my 80-year Mother about it and she showed me several of her blood test results from years ago that showed her fasting glucose levels were as high as 123, however, her last blood test (and several before that) showed 97. So...why did she have such high levels in the past and now her readings are normal? She does not have diabetes. What would cause high fasting glucose other than diabetes or pre-diabetes? I'm very confused and would appreciate any insight into this. Thank you.
Avatar m tn 1, fasting glucose 92). An additional fasting glucose test a few months later was normal at 94. Just a few days ago, I got another blood test and my fasting glucose was back up to 101. So in the past year, my results have been 102, 92, 94, and 101. I am 34 years old, very athletic, and not overweight at all. I am concerned about diabetes because both my aunt and uncle on my mother's side had type 1 diabetes, though my mother did not. Should I be concerned about the latest 101 result?
Avatar m tn On the 29th of sept did a fasting blood glucose ,reading was 99 ( on 8 hour fasting). Being confused repeated the test on 30th but with 12 hour fasting it the reading was 107.(all test done at the same lab). Now I am monitoring my blood sugar using glucometer getting normal readings. Occassionaly when i am tense and under stress getting readings which are above 140. Will keep you posted.
669150 tn?1320687133 when i took mine they didnt say anything about fasting, BUT if results come up a little high and u need a 3 hour test then yes that is fasting but the one hour i ate like normal 1 piece of toast wth peanut butter yogurt and juice
Avatar n tn Hi. My mom, in her early 60s and 5'2" and 117 pounds, just got her blood test results back. Her total cholesterol is 280. Triglycerides 72. VLDL is 13. LDL is 185. HDL is 81. Cholesterol/HDL ratio is 3.5. LDL/HDL ratio is 2.28. Her creatinine serum is .44 (low according to the report). Glucose is 180. TSH (high sensitivity) is .36, low according to the report. Please help interpret the results. What changes should she make to her diet? Is she likely diabetic?
Avatar n tn Just got results from annual bloodwork. Glucose level was 270 and this was a fasting blood test. They told me it was high- How bad is it? My dr. was suspicious because I have lost weight and have a few other symptoms. So I am glad they tested, but do not have a follow up appt for another month. Any info is appreciated.
Avatar n tn Hi recently my BP shooted to 140/90 during that course i was tested for CBC, Renal, Lipid and Sugar. All the counts of CBC, Renal and Lipid are absolutely normal. But my fasting blood sugar was 8.1 which is quite high. Before this test i used BP tablest for 4 days until the test is done. Later from the next day i was tested for Random blood sugar several times for 2 days always the readings are normal the highest shown is 5.2. My doctor not even commented on this.
Avatar m tn Testosterone levels. This last blood test, my doctor decides to take a full blood test, so it had to be a fasting blood test . Everything seemed normal until he noticed my Glucose was up to 176. Turned out I screwed up with the fasting, since I took a protein shake the night before testing in the morning, as I had gone to the gym. So he decides to have me retake it again, thinking that the previous test was inaccurate.
590190 tn?1235964426 I am 29 weeks and recently took the glcuose test, no fasting involved. I had lunch at 12 including two yummy cookies and drank the glucose drink at 3 and had my blood drawn at 4. I get a call the next day because my levels were a little high @ 146. So I'm going to get another 3 hour test done on monday, should I be concerned or worried about gestational diabetes? nervious about this...
Avatar f tn Lean proteins (fish, chicken, etc.) nuts, or a small salad maybe. I know those aren't really breakfast friendly, LOL. Stay away from sugary items, including fruit (they have natural sugars) and starchy foods (bread, pasta, potatoes, etc.) because the body will process it into sugar. These foods can elevate your sugar levels in your blood which may cause your test results to be elevated, although some people don't fast at all and their results come back fine.
514349 tn?1272801633 Blood tests last week - fasting glucose was 115 mg/dL. A1C was 5.6%. Does that mean pre-diabetes, diabetes, or neither?
514349 tn?1272801633 Hello~Was the test fasting or non-fasting? If fasting, then I would say you are heading towards diabetes but not there yet. I would ask for the A1C test, this is more accurate in determining what your blood sugars have been doing in the last 3 months. Also, I am not sure what the "normals" are for the others, so, it is difficult to tell just how much you are out of range, I have noticed that every lab has different "normals" for standard blood tests.
Avatar m tn The difference between a fasting glucose of 101 and 106 is probably negligible. Both of your values suggest that you have impaired fasting glucose (range 100 - 125). The measurement is the same in fasting and non fasting testing - the difference is in the reference range. A normal fasting glucose is < 100 and the current thinking seems to be that even a result in the mid to high 90s might suggest close monitoring.
