How is blood glucose homeostasis maintained

Common Questions and Answers about How is blood glucose homeostasis maintained


Tbd Postprandial hyperglycemia is also one of the earliest abnormalities of glucose homeostasis associated with type 2 diabetes" So test 1-2 hours after a meal. As a pure guess, I'd think that once a month is sufficient - unless you change your diet or activity or other risk factors.
Avatar n tn I don't think so, I think it is your body reacting to the hormones trying to balance back to normal. I had the same problem and that's what they told me. You will bleed most likely for a very long time. A few months. Once your hormones are balanced again, and your body has maintained it's homeostasis, you should stop bleeding.
Avatar m tn Marijuana does nothing to affect blood glucose levels either direction. Glucose levels in type 2 diabetes are maintained by weight loss, exercise and reduction of carbs. The only effect marijuana might have is to give you the munchies when you might eat things that could raise your blood sugar. If you are having trouble maintaining blood sugar in target range talk with your doctor about putting you on some meds.
Avatar f tn s recommended that Free T3 be maintained in the upper half to upper third of its range; your latest Free T3 is only at 41% or range. Your T3 in February was at 73% or range, but that it looks like that might have Total T3 since it's not specified as Free T3. Total T3 isn't as useful as Free T3 because it tells both Free and bound amounts of T3; we only need to know how much is Free or available for use by individual cells.
607566 tn?1221252380 When your nonfasting blood test comes back with a count of over 100 tryglycerics it means that your glucose blood count is too high. Anything over 100 tryglycer.... is a reason to have your glucose blood counted. Do whatever the doctor tells you to do in preparation for the diabetes test.
Avatar f tn Home glucose checking is designed to only give a ballpark snapshot of what our blood glucose is at that moment of time. Blood flow through the body is dynamic and the chemistry, including glucose, at any given point will very from one moment to the next. That said unless you took a blood sample and tested it many times (not taking a new sample for each test, thus a different blood chemistry) the variance in readings you recorded are normal.
Avatar n tn The other term for Reactive Hypoglycemia is postprandial hypoglycemia. It is no longer diagnosed using the glucose tolerance test due to the number of severe reactions. I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Doctor, Thank you for taking time to respond to my question. If depo caused me to gain weight.. How long until it is out out of my body? I had my last injection in April and continue to gain weight. I've seen several doctors, most have run a thyroid test--which they said was normal and simply tell me to "burn more calories and eat better.
1720613 tn?1309432604 Then test 2-3 hrs after each meal [postprandial] - to see how the foods you consumed affected your glucose levels. Post back if you don't know the acceptable ranges or read other threads on this forum as it has been mentioned quite often.
Avatar n tn I too have gestational diabetes but was unfortunate in the fact that diet and exercise alone would not reduce my blood glucose levels enough for me to be safe; I have to take tablets, a limited Sugar and carb diet, inject insulin 4 times a day and also maintain a healthy level of exercise. Its really hard going. The one thing that is keeping me motivated is the fact that my little one has no say in his weight gain, so he could get too big for a natural and safe vaginal delivery.
Avatar f tn First they give you glucose to drink and then you have to seat there and wait for about an hour... Then they draw your blood and it takes about 5 min (or more depending on how experienced is your nurse). I would also incorporate wait time if you need to wait in the lab prior to taking glucose. Then if you see your doctor add in the time it usually takes plus some... As ion my clinic it does vary how long I have to wait for my doc to see me. Hope that helps.
Avatar f tn Mines is going okay somehow I caught a cold but my son is still so active that helps me not worry so much so I'm laying down drinking tea and watching my fiancee play the game
6695047 tn?1383854549 He has reached what my vet is saying is a homeostasis phase which, as has been the case with Riggs, is very odd for an AKD cat. They either get noticeably worse or better, and he is neither. Has anyone else ever had a similar experience, either as a vet or owner, and can tell me what the outcome was? And any advice that helped you through it? He has only just been started on syringe feeding the last day and a half. Did syringe feeding make a difference?
Avatar m tn About a month ago, my little toe got a burning sensation and I thought I may have diabetes. I got a blood glucose meter and tested multiple times (non fasting) and it was never over 110. I started drinking beet juice for other reasons and immediately noticed my legs felt very much better, but my toe still 'burns'. Am I on the right track for a circulation disorder, most likely PAD?
3923358 tn?1358552214 About 1/2 after i ate I started to feel sort of out of it and so I tested it and my blood sugar was 69, is that low. Also yesterday my fasting glucose was 131. Should I be concerned?
Avatar m tn I noticed my blood sugar never goes above 120. It doesn't matter how much sugar I consume. Most of the time it is in the 80 to 90 range even after eating. Today I ate a breakfast burrito and had orange juice. My blood glucose was 92 thirty minutes after eating. Sometimes it will fall in the 60 range. My fasting blood glucose level was around 80. It seems like my body overcompensates when I consume sugar. Do you think I have reactive hypoglycemia?
Avatar n tn A diet that includes fruits, vegetables, fiber-containing foods, and low-fat milk is advised. Consumption of foods with a low glucose levels appears to reduce postprandial glucose rise and improve glycemic control. Reduced calorie and nonnutritive sweeteners are useful. However at this range it is also better to start with medications for diabetes to bring down the blood sugar levels. Please consult an endocrinologist for the same.
1209036 tn?1299178657 The oral glucose tolerance test involves quickly drinking a sweetened liquid (called Glucola), which contains 50 g of glucose. The body absorbs this glucose rapidly, causing blood glucose levels to rise within 30 to 60 minutes. A blood sample will be taken from a vein in your arm about 60 minutes after drinking the solution. The blood test measures how the glucose solution was metabolized (processed by the body).
Avatar m tn Testing once a day, in your case, will not provide you with adequate data to learn what is causing your blood glucose to elevate. This is the testing regimen first time users must perform before they step down to once a day or even once a week testing. The latter takes months and in some case years to get to. Until you make lifestyle changes - proper nutrition, maintaining normal weight, perform daily physical exercise - you will continue testing 6-7 times a day, or more.
Avatar n tn 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.
2118271 tn?1337463104 Hello everyone- I am aware that I have an anxiety/panic issue, and I am preparing myself to see a neurologist/psychiatrist in a few weeks to treat it. However, what I can't figure out is what is up with my blood sugar? I can't even get a true pattern to what is going on. Sometimes it spikes as high as 148, but more often than not it crashes down to 40s and 50s and makes me very ill. I am learning to live with this by eating every 2-3 hours, and eating a mix of carbs and proteins.
Avatar f tn ) And yes I hear you about how after surgery it seems like you drop off the map somehow. Vent away. This is the place to do it. What do you think that this red mark on your face is? Are you getting enough rest? Family and friends think great "he/she survived the surgery, so it's all better now" Hmmph we know that this is not so. The dang hormones are tricky and just not the same as the real ones. It is an artform to get them all balanced and it takes time.
