My fasting blood sugar is 130

Common Questions and Answers about My fasting blood sugar is 130


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 f tn First of all being continually over 130 for fasting blood sugar is too high. Your wife needs to have her doctor evaluate her medication regimen and see if something needs to be changed. Also I'm guessing you don't know much about diet and exercise to help control Type II diabetes and this is very important to learn. When her blood glucose goes below 60 or she feels hypoglycemic (get to know the symptoms) she needs to treat the low.
Avatar f tn But this morning I got really lightheaded and a headache all of a sudden(which I know is normal in pregnancy) but I checked my blood pressure again to see if that was it, and it was perfect. So I checked my blood sugar and it was 79, I had just had a fruit smoothie. The medical assistant at work told me it was low, and then another told me it was slightly low. My question is does anyone know what it should be? I go to the Dr tomorrow so I will ask him, but I'm just curious.
1058898 tn?1275678751 I notice my blood sugar at night between 2-3 am are over 120 and my fasting blood sugar in the morning is over 100. When i get the fealing of low it is around 80 and it will keep dropping. the last time it went to 67 and i had to eat some thing i couldnt wait. i had a cup of oj and checked in 15 min and it went to 137. I have also notice that i spike about 1 hour after eating and come down around 2 hours after which is mostly in the 130. and i notice if i drink a can of pop.
Avatar f tn I have been monitoring my blood sugars at home since at a doctor visit my fasting glucose was 135. Every morning in the past week I have taken it (on empty stomach) it has been in the 130's, only one time it was 114. All throughout the day it is between 129 and 158, sometimes it is 192, 263. I had blood drawn today for A1c, should get the results in a couple of days. I am wondering if these numbers are normal, or do I have a problem?
1058898 tn?1275678751 oh and when i tested at 2 hr it when to 138 from 197 1 hr before
Avatar f tn Hi am in 31 weeks for my second baby. Random blood sugar level is 161. Is it okay? Or it causes any problem? Also Hb is 9. Please suggest. Am worried so much.
Avatar m tn I am testing my sugar since last 3 years.. fasting always from 110 to max .140. But sugar level after 2 hrs of food is around 180-240, I checked several times. After 3-4 hrs of food it is coming to 130-140. Is it high sugar? I feel tired at times....
Avatar f tn I am a type II diabetic and I would like to know what is considered a "good" blood sugar reading for me when I test at different times of the day....before meals, after meals, fasting in the morning, at bedtime and other random times during the day.
1680047 tn?1468915429 140-180 two hours after eating would be too high. Your stated values of fasting blood sugar readings are high, according to my doctor.
Avatar f tn Hello, fasting blood sugar in the range of 120 - 130 puts you firmly in diabetic territory, as does your hba1c of 7.4 which corresponds to an average blood sugar level of about 180. These levels would already require medications. Consider that normal fasting should be below 90 and normal hba1c is < 5.0. Given your height and weight, you are not overweight. Further you have no family history of diabetes. Therefore, I believe you should be evaluated for adult onset type 1 diabetes.
Avatar n tn All of my number are ok EXCEPt my fasting blood sugar. I'm not in any medication.
325405 tn?1262293778 If I forget to take my metformin at night, my fasting level is usually around 120 to 130. But, with the medicine it is 100 to 110 fasting. Is this good? Is it supposed to be under 90? Or can I not aim for that goal since I'm a diabetic and is it unrealistic? When I was gestational diabetic I had to aim for under 90 fasting and under 120 for after meals, which I ended up on insulin while pregnant to do so. My Dad says he has to aim for 90 to 110 fasting and under 140 after meals.
Avatar f tn i have GD & they want me to test my blood sugar 2 hours after eating, & it should be under 120. some say 130. when fasting, or waking up in the morning it should be between 60-90.
Avatar n tn I exercise a lot, jog for 4 kms (non stop almost) 4 times a week, do weights, stretches, cycling etc, Have a well regulated diet. Fasting sugar always is below 110. PP was earlier 130. Have diabetics in hereditary. I am 5.3 in ht and weigh 64 kgs. What could be the reason ?

Avatar n tn what is the number of blood sugar in the morning afternoon and evening between meals and how many hours after food, thanks
Avatar n tn What do I do if my fasting or before meal blood glucose is above 130? Do I eat something anyway, or wait until my blood glucose drops below 130, or perhaps below 110? Sometimes my before meal number is 145-185, but I still feel hungry (happens usually if I have eaten a carb heavy meal the night before... I'm trying to stop doing that). Should I exercise before meals in an effort to bring my before-meal blood sugar down enough for it to be OK to eat something?
Avatar n tn However, you must realize that if your goal is a blood sugar at 70 at mealtime, your lows if you miscalculate activity or food or if something speeds up your metabolism may get dangerously low. It is very difficult to keep blood sugar from dipping below 70 if the goal is 70, for sometimes we are going to slip below our goals, no matter how careful we are. I personally aim for a mealtime number of close to 100, so that if I miscalculate I won't be at risk of severe hypoglycemia.
Avatar m tn i read that fasting is baseline so everything go from there no? if my fasting is 110 then glucose spike will be about 30 higher than if fasting was 80 or not? otherwise what the point of having low fasting?
Avatar n tn This gives an average of what is going on. Your blood sugar levels are really very high. this means that your diabetes is not under control and you are causing damage to yourself. You need to discuss this with your doctor. Regular monitoring is part of managing diabetes. I can't believe that he would discourage you from doing this. If your doctor won't work in partnership with you AND help you get your BS under control, then it's time for a new doctor.
149675 tn?1416676733 I have read that hep C can cause blood sugar abnormalities. There is a history of Diabetes in my family (brother and father) and I am about 30 lbs overweight so it could be that. I am going to schedule a test with my doctor. I've had them in years past and been fine but i am wondering if it could be from the hep c. Anyone else ever experience this?
Avatar n tn My daughter ( 7 yrs old) had her blood sugar tested at a dr appointment yesterday. It was taken about 4 hours after eating. It came back at 133. The dr wants to do a fasting check on her. Are her levels high?
Avatar n tn I used an old meter from Precision Neo and my numbers were around 130 no higher than 158. My endocrinologist gave me a One Touch and my numbers are at 174 all week. Mornings are 130 or 113. Either my new meter is more sensitive, or I'm struggling..I'm very thirsty and my fingers are numb. I've walked and I eat a good diet. I meet a nutritionist on Tuesday. I stick to a low carb and high protein diet. I do enjoy fresh fruit. Not excessive though. Not sure how to bring my sugar down.
Avatar m tn If it is less than 100, eat 15 grams of carbohydrate, and recheck your blood sugar in 15 minutes. If your blood sugar is 250+ and you have urinary ketones present, delay exercise until it is below 250. People shouldn't exercise if their blood sugar is <100 is because they can go hypoglycemic. More often than not exercise will lower blood glucose levels, but there are certain circumstances under which blood glucose levels can actually increase.
