Avatar m tn my blood sugar after meals is 125 (8pm)but in the morning 7am its between 140and 150.
Avatar n tn The doctor here gave me no guidelines on how long I should be fasting before a blood sugar test. I've been searching online to get a consistent number of hours, but am seeing everything from 6 hours to 12 hours. Some people say nothing after 9:00 PM, and others say nothing after midnight. I think I ate and drank up until midnight the night before my last test at 8:00 AM, but am not completely sure. Thanks!
Avatar f tn micronutrient deficiencies, some infections, autoimmune disorders, connective tissue disorders etc could also present similarly. The fasting blood sugar level is high; however this could also result from physical/ systemic stress, medication side effect etc; and would require further investigation (repeat values/ GTT and c-peptide levels) for establishing a diagnosis. I would suggest discussing the situation in detail with his treating pediatrician. Hope this is helpful. Take care!

Avatar f tn My husbands fasting blood sugar is always around 110...he hasn't been diagnosed with diabetes (has no other symptoms) and he's also had the other blood test (not sure of the name, but the one where they check the rate of sugar over a three month period?) and that was okay...should this be a concern?
Avatar f tn I would recommend recording your blood sugar levels fasting, and 1 hour after you eat and speaking about it with your doctor. The fasting level that you mention in your question is elevated. You want to speak with your doctor soon, so that you can get your sugars regulated either by diet and exercise or medications if that is what is recommended. It also might be helpful to keep a food journal until you see your doctor.
1010843 tn?1264044268 Hi, when I was pregnant and on insulin, my dr. increased the insulin when my fasting blood sugar began to go consistently over 95 in the mornings (if I was over 95 for 3 days, then we increased the nightime insulin. If my day time levels started to go out, then we increased the morning insulin). We increased by 2 units per increase, with close monitoring. Your insulin requirement will increase during the pregnancy and it is normal to have to increase it.
Avatar f tn The main thing is to have a high-fat moderate-protein diet with minimal carbs. Keeps blood sugar in a stable range. Insulin is a powerful hormone, and carbs will only incite blood sugar spikes. Carbs on balance are nasty things. And they are not necessary for survival. Only fat and protein are.
973741 tn?1342346373 For those who are lucky enough to have 8 hours of sleep, well, that's 8 hours at least of fasting every day, and probably more due to the time it takes to prepare for bed and to prepare for breakfast. This isn't fasting, it's eating discipline.
125112 tn?1217277462 Fasting is never a great idea. No fasting is healthy if it is longer than one day. There are different levels of fasting. A total fasting state is when you don't eat or drink anything. That is okay for a day or two in cooler climates, but in hotter climates it is too long. You can dehydrate very fast and die. Partial fasting is only slightly better. Some people drink only water and don't eat. This is okay for about 4 days or so.
Avatar f tn I was given Metformin to take 2x Daily. They told me they wanted my fasting blood sugar to be 70 - 110, but I can't remember what they told me the range should be 2 hours after eating. I am only suppose to check my blood sugars once a day so I try to do it at a different time every day and I just can't remember what they told me what they should be after eating. Oh, and my A1C was down to 6.3 when they retested it in June.
Avatar n tn carbohydrate ratios, your time-of-day effects, etc. You've taken the all-important first steps by acknowledging you want to do better and reaching out for some help. I imagine you'll feel better (physically & emotionally) when you take the next steps to improve your overall management. Good luck -- it does take marathon (not sprint) skills to manage our lives with diabetes.
529159 tn?1224994626 I am having a wide variance in the fasting blood sugar results each morning. If I test just as soon as I get up my FBS is between 130-150. If I wait about 30-45 minutes, shower and get dressed the numbers increase to between 170-190. I haven't eaten or had anything to drink in this time period. Is there a reason for this sudden increase? Which number is my real FBS?
Avatar n tn I wasn't supposed to be diabetic until now, but at 50 I started to check for blood sugar (I am 51)with my blood sugar monitor. Amazingly, the fast blood level right after wake these last days was 7 (mmol). If I stay to bed til 11 am, it was 7.5 mmol. After shower, it drops to 6.5 / 6.8, 2 hours after breakfast (chicken salad and big plate of oatmeal with non-fat milk and without sugar or sweeteners) it drops to 6.1, during the day, it's 6.1, at at bed time, goes to 5.5 ! Isn't it weird ?
Avatar n tn ___________________________________ What is a fasting blood sugar test? A fasting blood sugar test measures the amount of sugar (glucose) in your blood after you fast for eight hours. What's normal? Your fasting blood sugar is normal if it's 70 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL), or 3.88 millimoles per liter (mmol/L), to 100 mg/dL (5.55 mmol/L). What level suggests prediabetes? If your fasting blood sugar is 100 mg/dL (5.55 mmol/L) to 125 mg/dL (6.94 mmol/L), you may have prediabetes.
Avatar n tn I generally (but not always) wake up a tad lower than I go to bed, but some people also have something called Dawn Phenomenon (sp?) where their blood sugar will continue rising in the morning until they eat. Diabetes and blood sugar is a pretty complex thing and many things vary between people and even at different times for one person.
Avatar m tn Your fasting blood sugar is at high end of normal, but your hba1c is normal. Did you ready a lot of carbs the day before the test. You probably don't need to worry about diabetes at this point. Focus on healthy minimally processed diet, exercise, maintaining normal weight.
Avatar m tn ( Iam 29 male Thanks
Avatar n tn While I understand your concern that you're close to top of the range, blood sugar numbers vary continuously during the day & night and there is some margin of error associated with each blood test. You're doing all the right things and if I were in your shoes, I'd take my doc's interpretation to heart. Keep up your good work.
Avatar f tn a level of 217 was a result of test taken postprandial...and i ate meat that time for lunch..and my fasting sugar level was plz let me know how serious or mild is my condition...thank u...
Avatar m tn Hi, stress can indeed raise blood sugar. The normal hba1c is reassuring. However, what was your actual number. Many labs give a cut-off of 5.7 for normal hba1c. Howver, 5.7 is equal to an average blood sugar of about 125. A truly normal hba1c is < 5.0 and average blood sugar < 100. Now, if your hba1c is < 5.0, I would not be concerned about the spike in fasting glucose that occurred with stress / lack of sleep (though I would want to keep monitoring regularly).
Avatar f tn I have had a history of hypoglycemia and my fasting blood sugar has always been around 70-80. This year my blood pressure had gone too high (I am on meds now and is well controlled). I recently found out my iron was a little too low (saturation level of %14). I have reflux and had been on meds but am now going off them bacause I believe they caused digestion problems. Cholesterol was borderline high when last tested in April.
