Glucose levels normal in children

Common Questions and Answers about Glucose levels normal in children


Avatar n tn We have described best glucose levels in children as they grow and develop: Five and younger: Normal blood sugar targets are 100 to 200mg/dl. Age 5 to 11: Normal blood sugar targets are 70 to 150mg/dl. Fasting blood sugars should be nearer to 70mg/dL. Blood sugar after meals and before bedtime should be near 150mg/dL. Age 12 and older A healthy glucose level of age 12 and elder should be near 70mg/dl when fasting and 150mg/dl after meals.
Avatar f tn In a person without diabetes, the glucose levels in the blood rise following drinking the glucose drink, but then then fall quickly back to normal (because insulin is produced in response to the glucose, and the insulin has a normal effect of lowing blood glucose.
Avatar f tn She also drinks alot as well as pees a lot. Is it normal for blood glucose to react this way in a non diabetic child or should have her checked by her doctor?
Avatar n tn I believe that different doctors give different levels, though. I have read that normal post-prandial levels are under 147, but I have heard of some doctors who don't get concerned if levels go above that as long as they normalize within a reasonable length of time. Patterns are more important than any individual reading.
Avatar n tn While they sometimes go away when the glucose levels return to normal after drinking some juice, I have found that sometimes they stay with me for hours after a low blood sugar spell. So my first question would be: has your son experienced any low blood sugar episodes at all on days when he has headaches? That would be the only diabetes-related thing that I am aware of that can cause horrible headaches. Other than that, maybe his doctor should look at other possible causes.
Avatar n tn 1) renal glycosuria = where glucose is excreted in the urine despite normal or low blood glucose levels, and 2) glucose-galactose malabsorption =meaning there is no source of energy for the cells. On the other hand, alterations in glucose transporters explain the newly discovered syndrome of GLUT1 deficiency where low CNS glucose in the presence of normal blood sugar, causing seizures and developmental delay. This could be what your doctors are suspecting with Jamie.
Avatar n tn Basically I am worried because from what I understand a person living without diabetes should not have blood glucose levels so high at any time. I guess I should tell you I do not have family history of type 1 or 2 diabetes in my family. I am 21 years old and have a BMI of 23 (therefore I am at a healthy weight). Thanks for reading and any advice/comments for me!
Avatar n tn I checked her glucose levels with my sons meter and it read 124, just confused if its in normal range!! I think I will make an appointment for her and try to get a fasting glucose test done on her.
Avatar m tn There people showing fasting blood glucose typically in the low 80s Anne with very little variance even when they eat. Blood glucose in children and during normal pregnancy is also lower.
Avatar n tn I am a type 1 diabetic who has had two children. The numbers you are giving us sound like ideal numbers for a non-diabetic person, so you needn't worry about the health of your baby at all with numbers like these. For the diabetic, the goal is of course to keep the sugars low, also, but it is more difficult for the diabetic to attain after-meal sugars of 120.
808221 tn?1242747788 Five days after starting metforming my dr. added Janumet 50/1000mg in the morning and metforming 500mg in the evening. My glucose levels started to come down when i started on it 4 days ago. Last evening my glucose level was 117 and this morning 134. I'm almost up to my previous level of exercise( 45minutes) and starting to feel much better. I'v also lost 2 additional pounds with diet and exercise and I have also posted my values on my tracker. Hope to bring it.
Avatar f tn Your son should be a good candidate for the pump,if his blood sugars were in normal range, he would'nt need the pump, so I don't know what your doctor is on about. Keep asking that's what I did and hopefully he'll get one soon!
Avatar n tn I think mothers have a gift to see things other don't in their children. I knew in my heart he was diabetic. I am not sure how I knew the sypmtoms as no one in our family has diabetes, but I knew! I hated to have the doctor say those words to me and I fully admit I still cry when I think about it too hard, but you should seek medical attention for your daughter and have her tested. I hope she is okay.
Avatar f tn this test included a basic blood panel and some female hormone tests but not testosterone or prolactin. my thyroid, glucose, etc are all normal. i still have facial hair and use vaniqa to help control it. i don't have any other PCOS symptoms though. the hair on my head is not thin, i have no skin tags, i have regular monthly periods (since 11 yrs old), i am a bit over weight but i do eat some bad foods in to big of a quantity. my pap tests and pelvic exams have been normal.
541196 tn?1293556536 Both times my prolactin levels were always normal. My last tumor was remove by an excellent neurosurgeon in Houston, TX that specializes in Only Head and Neck, with another specialty in Just Pituitary Tumors. This doctor travels to other countries to do the tumors that other neruosurgeons will not touch. There are many doctors that have very detailed specialties, but you have to look for them.
Avatar f tn They have excellent info about maintaining normal blood sugars in children (this is what is important for their normal growth and development).
1276121 tn?1420864200 Thats kinda good she made you wait so your not worried if you don't see anything. I hope everything goes well with your levels. Keep us posted. I have my Glucose screening tomorrow and Im not looking foward to it. LOL. That stuff is so nasty!! I will pray everything goes well for you and your little peanut!
125112 tn?1217277462 I was having irregular menses, so they did a bunch of bloodwork and found that my TSH levels were mildy elevated. They tested T3 and T4 and those levels were normal. But then they tested me for Antithyroid Antibodies and my TSH again. My TSH is normal now. Cool! But I have about double the normal level of antibodies. Huh? Is this usual?
178698 tn?1228777938 I don't know much about GD but Tricia's advice seems right on target - my advice would be to follow her diet guidelines - even if you test okay for GD, maybe your glucose levels are funky for you. Eating more protein is a good idea anyway even if you continue to eat carbs.
432779 tn?1364498475 I took and failed my 1hr glucose test too. I have never failed with my other two children. Tomorrow I am going for the 3hr glucose test. For the last week I have stayed away from all the sugary and starchy stuff. Hopefully this will help make my sugar more stable. I am scared to have GD because my family has a history of diabetics.I am very scared if I do develop it that it might not go away after delivery.
435139 tn?1255463991 i say go with you normal routine so they know if you have problems managing your sugar levels ...the only thing i missed was having some tums with me cause they made me drink that thing fast and it gave the heart burn of a life time!
Avatar f tn 640 and I had a low potassium level. I should also mention that around this time I started getting a lot of leg weakness and dull pain in my muscles. They felt like I had just ran a marathon. Mainly at night while trying to sleep which would keep me up but would go away after being up in the morning for a couple of hours. I was referred to a rheumatologist who had no idea what was going on. I have no joint pain or swelling and all tests for Lupus came back negative.
1165078 tn?1338659345 First, their blood magnesium levels were established. In all cases, the levels were below normal, supporting the findings of Martin, Meke, and Wertman. Next Barnett decided to correct the deficiency by giving oral magnesium preparations. "It was hoped that the magnesium supplement would control the seizures," he told us in an interview. Within a matter of weeks the blood magnesium level returned to normal, and in every case, except one there was definite clinical improvement.
Avatar n tn the doctor has told me b.s have to be in normal range if not i will be put on insulin for my pregnancy and then after birth i can stop and continue diet control again,but i am worried if my body gets used to insulin how will i manage without it .and also how safe is it in pregnancy and are there any side effect s,i am thinking now should i not have any more children i am so confused and stressed out i am sacred to turn on the blood suger machine in case i get i high reading .thankyou.
Avatar f tn , have to urinate constantly afterward, and often get diarrhea during these episodes as well. I have discussed this with my doctor in the past, but she just shrugged it off, said it was probably just anxiety and from being tired all of the time, and to "relax." I have never had any blood work or tests other than thyroid levels (which I asked for because I had been told my thyroid was enlarged, but she didn't seem to think it was a big deal), which was borderline low (0.35).
Avatar m tn I am interested in the prognosis of other infants or young children that have survived an aneurysm through surgery. Any history or information you could share would be appreciated. He was admitted in hospital due to fever where aneurysm may have potentially ruptured,seized for 3 hours, lot of blood in his brain, went through coiling surgery, had 2 angioplasty to control cerebral vasospasm.
Avatar m tn My sister and my mother are in the same boat. They both have "normal" labs with hypothyroid symptoms. In fact my mother went today and the doctor told her he doesn't look at TSH (first time I heard that one) but if the free T4 is in range he won't give out thyroid medication. He doesn't care about symptoms. Slams. Head. On. Desk. LOL I had serious reactions to B12 injections myself - severe breathing issues/4 month acne rash.
Avatar n tn Ovaries were found to be of normal size, however a 1.6 cm septated cyst was seen in the right ovary and a tiny cyst was present on the left. The appearance was non typical for polycistic ovaries and no other abnormality was seen. Her blood work showed her FSH to be at 7, Testosterone at 1.8, and Progesterone at 3.4, Estradiol at 96, Glucose Serum Fasting at 4.4, Cholesterol at 5.31, LDL at 3.38...Her Urinalysys detected .5 Ketones (mmol/L), Protein at 1.0 g/L and Trace Leukocyte...
