Non fasting glucose blood test

Common Questions and Answers about Non fasting glucose blood test


Avatar n tn A fasting glucose test will give a fairly accurate reading of the amount of excess glucose floating around your blood streams. A measurement of 5.0 mmol/l is considered normal, not diabetic.
490398 tn?1319940717 This is NOT a fasting glucose. My dad is diabetic and he has all of the tools to test blood. He has regular diabetes not Type 2 but it usually skips a generation. I had blood taken at the doctor last week, again, not fasting, for other health problems and it came back at 169. My doc obviously wants to retest me when I've been fasting and get an A1c.
Avatar f tn Hello~I am not a doctor or lab technician, so I really can not give you a clear answer on this. However, I am wondering if this test was "fasting" or "non-fasting" If fasting, the glucose looks a wee bit high to me, not much, but higher than most doctors like it to be if you are fasting, the desired levels are under 100.
Avatar m tn The difference between a fasting glucose of 101 and 106 is probably negligible. Both of your values suggest that you have impaired fasting glucose (range 100 - 125). The measurement is the same in fasting and non fasting testing - the difference is in the reference range. A normal fasting glucose is < 100 and the current thinking seems to be that even a result in the mid to high 90s might suggest close monitoring.
514349 tn?1272801633 Hello~Was the test fasting or non-fasting? If fasting, then I would say you are heading towards diabetes but not there yet. I would ask for the A1C test, this is more accurate in determining what your blood sugars have been doing in the last 3 months. Also, I am not sure what the "normals" are for the others, so, it is difficult to tell just how much you are out of range, I have noticed that every lab has different "normals" for standard blood tests.
Avatar f tn That's crazy that so many women on here said their drs said not to fast. I've seen 4 different obgyns and all sais for the glucose test is a fasting test. Maybe that's why I see so many women on here saying they failed their test? I've never heard of not fasting for this test tho crazy!
1654177 tn?1319838494 Anyway, I told my doctor at Kaiser and she ran a random blood glucose test (non-fasting). My blood sugar was 68 ml/dl, the standard range is 70-140 ml/dl. She says to just eat less carbs and do more cardio exercise, and that this could be pre-diabetes. The part that concerns me is the numb feet. I have cut down carbs in the past 2 weks and continued to exercise more, but still my feet are numb, and hurt sometimes. Any advice?
Avatar m tn ve indicated pre-diabetes, but not in this case since you had eaten. Your doctor should have given you an A1c test which is a non fasting test . It provides an average of your blood sugar over the past 3 months. She should do that test now in addition to a fasting test as well.
Avatar m tn 1, fasting glucose 92). An additional fasting glucose test a few months later was normal at 94. Just a few days ago, I got another blood test and my fasting glucose was back up to 101. So in the past year, my results have been 102, 92, 94, and 101. I am 34 years old, very athletic, and not overweight at all. I am concerned about diabetes because both my aunt and uncle on my mother's side had type 1 diabetes, though my mother did not. Should I be concerned about the latest 101 result?
Avatar f tn It's to see of you have gestational diabetes. It's important because if you have it and goes untreated there are a lot of things that could happen to your baby even stillbirth.
649848 tn?1534633700 I, recently, had a Glucose Tolerance Test due to fluctuating fasting glucose and weight issues, but the worst symptom is tiredness/afternoon crash. The results of the GTT were as follows: Fasting: 97 1 hr: 165 2 hr: 124 3 hr: 48 L 4 hr: 56 L Over the past 5 years, my fasting glucose levels have ranged from around 97 or 98 all the way up to 125, but never over 125. My A1c has ranged from 5.5 to 5.8 over the same period and my doctor has said I'm pre-diabetic.
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.
Avatar n tn With the FPG(Fasting Plasma Glucose Test)test, a fasting blood glucose level between 100 and 125 mg/dl signals pre-diabetes. A person with a fasting blood glucose level of 126 mg/dl or higher has diabetes. That is from the American Diabetes website, So, I think your doctor is doing all the right things. Why don't you look at that site or the JDRF site.
Avatar f tn Normal fasting blood glucose for a non-diabetic person will be < 95, with ideal considered to be in the mid- to low 80s. One issue is that sometimes post meal numbers can be abnormally high, even while fasting appears normal or close to normal. So I would recommend that you request an hba1c, which is a test for average 3 month blood sugar. ideally that result will be 5.0 or less. You could alternatively buy a blood glucose meter and test your levels from time to time.
514349 tn?1272801633 I had to have 2 blood chemistry panels done before 2 separate surgeries in June and October last year. According to the results, in June my non-fasting blood glucose was 117 and A1c was 5.8. In October the fasting glucose reading was 103 and A1c was 5.8. I cannot get a physician to diagnose either pre-diabetes or Type 2 diabetes. When I told my PCP and gastroenterologist all they said in effect was, "Uh-huh.
607566 tn?1221252380 Thanks for all the input, I just don,t get how she could say I have diabetes from a 126 glucose and I wasn't fasting for the last 2 test. I wasn't sure if the Dr was just a waste of my time diagnosing me on 2 non-fasting results.
Avatar m tn person having a1c- 5.9, average blood sugar -110 ....but fasting sugar 82 .will b considered prediabetic??? tell me if any other confirmation test is required?
Avatar f tn Another way to get diagnosed of diabetes is to have your fasting blood sugar tested. Fasting refers to no caloric intake for at least 8 hours. if fasting blood sugar is more than 7.0mmol/L, then you would be diagnosed with diabetes. To prevent from being diabetic, it is important to adhere to healthy lifestyle--healthy eating and exercise.
Avatar n tn I have been seeing an endocrinologist because I am constantly having low blood sugar readings and have had a high fasting blood glucose test of 8.3. My endocrinologist feels this may be due to my dysautonomia. She thought maybe reactive hypoglycemia because I am having low fasting glucose levels as well as high. I went for a 2hr OGTT today and I am feeling horrible after the test. My baseline was 4.8 @ 8:55 Given 75g of glucose to drink At 4.3 @ 9:25 At 4.8 @ 9:55 At 6.2 @ 10:25 At 6.
603046 tn?1279159413 Sometimes my non fasting reading is less than fasting. For example yesterday my fasting was 126 but my non-fasting was 108. Any explanation why? I see my doctor fairly often usually for lab tests. I see two different doctors and both said I don't need to have medication. As I previoulsy indicated I was on Avandia for a while but my doctor took me of it based on the glycohmoglobin test. My only medication I'm taking at the moment is Zocor 10 mg daily.
Avatar m tn However, as the answer above explains, the fasting blood glucose is not the best test for diagnosing diabetes. I would recommend that you speak with your doctor about what they would recommend as the next step for more reliable testing to see where you stand.
Avatar n tn A1c reading ≥ 6.5%, fasting plasma glucose reading ≥ 126 mg/dL (taken 8 or more hours after a meal), or a 2-hour plasma glucose reading > 200 mg/dL following a 75 gram oral glucose test. Keep in mind many of these tests must be performed by a medical professional. Your blood glucose reading after you ate the candy bar was higher than normal and may put you at risk of developing diabetes in the future.
