A lot of times your blood sugar levels can be controlled with diet and exercise some people need medication to help stable their blood sugar. I check my blood sugar 4x's a day once in the morning and then 1 hr after each meal. Part of the diet is watching how many carbs you eat but it's also about balancing your carbs with protein. Your suppose to eat 3 small meals and 3 snacks a day. Your Dr will give you more in depth info when you go for your appointment.
Well i failed my first glucose test. They didnt tell me not to eat or drink prior to the test. So now i have to do the 3 hour test. I have a feeling im going to fail that too,..... what does it mean if i have diabetes during pregnancy? Will it affect my baby? Am i high risk pregnancy now?
In going for my glucose test tomorrow and I was wondering if it was OK to eat before the test or not. I have heard it was ok but I have also heard that you shouldn't because it will mess the test up. What should I do?
So you ladies know that I work in the hospital where I'm going to give birth, so therefore I can look at my own test results. Well I had my Glucose challenge this morning and the test came as 138mg/dl (without having nothing to eat prior to the test). I called my doctor right away, but I left him a message....
From doing some research online, I see my number is too high!!! What do you guys think??? Please help, I don't want to have GD!!
After a few days I called to get my results and was told my fasting blood was a little higher than what they'd like to see but that the rest of them were fine and that I'd passed! The next week I went in for my regular dr appointment and when my dr read my results he said I was borderline and to avoid complex carbs. I'm confused about the borderline part though...this is my 3rd baby and I didn't have any issues with my first two.
I was in the hospital a year ago on an unrelated matter and after I was released I began going over some of my test results and found a fasting Glucose reading of 108 which concerned me.
I lost about 20 lbs, began walking 3 mi/day, severely resticted my carbs and bought a meter and began testing because of my concern over possibly being "pre-diabetic". Random readings are always in the low to mid 80s, post prandial responses are excellent peaking at ~125 at 1.
I got my results back from the one hour glucose test. It was 170. I have to go for a 3 hour test. My. doctors office said that just because i failed the first doesn't mean ill fail the next. Is 170 really bad? If i do fail to what happens next? Im a ftm... So nervous.
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.
I just got a call from my nurse with the results of my glucose test and she wasn't too happy. My level was 144 and she said it should have been 130 no more than 135...~sad face~...So now I have to do a three day "diet/fast" beginning on monday and then I have to do the three hour test on Thursday...I really, really hope that the results are better with the next test...I don't want to have to go on insulin..I am tired of needles!!
I have compared its results to lab blood tests, and find that the results are very accurate. The Advantage does not use a drum dispenser, but uses the one-strip at a time system that allows the user to replace a strip quickly if a test goes wrong. You may want to check to see if your insurance company will cover this one if you do not wish to use the automatic dispenser system.
I have recently gone in for a routine Lab test and I found that my BloodGlucose level is 127. I have had a test 2 years back. but, now what I am concerned is it like that I have Diebetes? what should I do now. My urine analysis doesn't show any traces of glucose.I am obesse and I am working on controlling it.I am a Male and I am 30 years.I am a bit scared beacuse this is the first time Ihad a -ve results in the Lab test. can any one please advice.
The doctor decided to run a CBC and Chem Panel. I called today and was told
that even though the blood test results were in that I would have to wait until next Wednesday to talk with the doctor.
I asked the nurse if everything was alright and was told that my blood glucose levels were somewhat higher than
normal but would have to wait a week to talk with the doctor. I am very concerned and slightly anxious. Does this mean that I could have diabetes?
But now we have observe that his bloodglucose drop down, so we reduced insulin into 0.5ml, and still his bloodglucose drop into 118-140, now we are confused if he still needed the insulin or we have to totally stop it. Hope anyone can give us advised.
thanks and more power!
