1154802 tn?1266485720 What is the normal range for blood glucose fasting, 1 hour after eating and 2 hours after eating? I think mine might be a bit high...
Avatar n tn Those of us who staff this site are not physicians, and so you may not be able to get the answers you seek on this website. Furthermore, this kind of information is going to depend on the individual. Just because a person is diabetic does not automatically mean his or her urine composition is going to be different from a non-diabetic person. This depends on what kind of control the diabetic has on his or her glucose levels.
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.
Avatar n tn These are goals for diabetics and non-diabetics. However, these goals may not be correct for medicinal induced diabetics; one that has diabetes as a side effect of medication. Their "normal" range may exceed these ranges by their doctor/hospital. Also, senior age may alter the range (raise) for that patient. Healthy 92 yo aunt has a normal range of <160 mg/dl, fasting.
Avatar f tn The A1c provides an insight on your past 2-3 month glucose levels. Red blood cells live on average 2-3 months. Excess glucose rides on new red blood cells, the A1c captures this and provides an estimated three month daily average. " If a result such as 5.8% translates into an "average daily" value of 120 mg/dL, how can 5.8% be considered normal?" An A1c of 5.8% equates to an eAG [estimated daily Average Glucose] of 120 mg/dl, key word is estimated.
Avatar m tn Most non-diabetics will not get close to 120. The highest I have seen a non-diabetics blood sugar raise (after eating a ton of processed sugar) was 102. When you are not diabetic your body automatically adapts to the changes in nutrients in order to keep your organs working properly.
Avatar m tn For diabetics it can go either way. Treatment can cause the blood sugar to go up or down. But if the diabetes is not under good control before starting treatment for Hep C, it lowers your chances of success. Adverse events are also more common on diabetics. I have NEVER seen diabetes go away after treatment. I have seen the blood sugar improve but diabetes disappear? Never.
Avatar n tn You are normal. After meal ranges are <180 mg/dl while some doctors want to see <140 mg/dl. [< means less than].
Avatar m tn My fasting levels range between 126 and 136 ( first thing in the morning ) and during the day they keep coming down 90 to 108. They get to around 90 after a long brisk walk. I have had a glucose tolerance test done and the fasting reading was 136 and after 2 hours it was 115. So, I am kinda a confused. I have a diabetic reading for fasting, but a normal non-diabetic reading for the 'after 2 hours. So, what's going on?
798555 tn?1292787551 "What is the best method of testing glucose with a home meter before and after meals for a good baseline to compare in the future?" Preprandial [b4 meal] levels should be in normal fasting range of 60/70 to 99 mg/dl Postprandial [2-3 hours after meal] range are as follows: • Diabetics aim for <141 mg/dl, optimum <121 mg/dl. • In non-diabetics, glucose peak ∼60 minutes after the start of a meal, rarely exceed 140 mg/dl, and return to preprandial fasting levels.
Avatar m tn I have recently visited an endo because my fasting glucose was a bit high, 95 on the last blood work. Every other test was completely normal. After a complete blood/urine test, everything came back normal, including A1C of 4.8 My endo suggested that I can take the glucose tolerance test to be sure (he is very thorough). I even bought a glucose meter and tested myself for a week (2 hrs postmeal was around 120). I just got home, very depressed about my GTT results.
798555 tn?1292787551 m in the pre-diabetic range. My glucose hovers 99-110. Fasting or non fasting lately it makes no difference. I dont seem to have the very low glucose 'swing' problem that some diabetics have. I seem stable at a higher level than I want to be. I also have Hashimotos - linked to diabetes (the two go hand in hand, common), that is the only reason my endo can see that I have pre -daiabetes. I do not have the typical Diabetic body or unhealthy pre-diagnosis diet the most diabetics have.
Avatar n tn Chromium appears to play a role in normal insulin function and glucose utilization, and some investigators have suggested that it increases insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance and decreases blood glucose levels in certain diabetics, possibly those with low chromium levels. However, others have not corroborated these findings, and a few have even reported a negative effect on glucose tolerance and blood levels.
Avatar n tn First thing you need have on hand is a home glucose test meter. The only way you're going to know how the foods you consumed affected your glucose [blood sugar] levels is by testing, testing, and more testing. Times to test are; fasting - first thing in morning b4 having any food or colored liquids [plain water is OK]. This will tell you how much stored sugar your liver is dumping during sleep hours. Normal levels are 60/70 - 99 mg/dl or 3.33/3.88 - 5.
Avatar f tn Hello, Normal blood sugars in pregnant women are actually LOWER than normal blood sugars in non-pregnant persons. The totally normal range in pregnancy is somewhere between about 65 and 100. A blood sugar of 79 30 minutes or so after eating is totally normal, and shows no signs of diabetes at all. You should be very pleased with this number. Of course, eat healthy and avoid excess sweets. Take regular moderate exercise. Wishing you a healthy pregnancy.
Avatar n tn which is managed automatically in non-diabetics. As a normal part of our physiological preparation for the day, hormones are released in the early morning hours. Those higher levels of hormones require additional insulin to keep BGs in the target range. This is quite common among diabetics, type 1 or 2. Type 1s can often tweak insulin -- after doing some 3am & 5am tests as GG recommends.
Avatar n tn If either one lets glucose levels run high, then complications such as kidney damage or eye damage or nerve damage can happen. But both should be equally able to keep glucose levels close to the normal range if they test often and take appropriate medications. The outcome truly depends on the patient's own hard work. Studies have shown a direct correlation between the risk of complications and the diabetic person's control over his or her glucose levels.
212161 tn?1599427282 If you are truly not a diabetic, meaning you have never been diagnosed as one or been tested and you know for sure, then your blood readings two hours after a meal should be close to normal. less than 120. But a non-diabetic can have slightly high readings if they've had too much food, or food that is high in sugars, carbs, etc. or a person who does not get any exercise. You also could be borderline diabetic and don't know.
Avatar m tn 5 mmol/l is regarded as the top range for fasting glucose this is probably why your doctor said normal. For non-diabetics many doctors use 4.44 - 6.66 mmol/l as normal postprandial [after meal] ranges. It's quite simple to lower to your glucose with weight loss, daily exercise, and by reducing carbohydrate food intake.
Avatar n tn Exercise helps people with diabetes keep their blood sugar in good control and within a normal range. Glucose is used while exercising, which would lower the blood sugar level, not raise it. If you are predisposed to developing type 1 diabetes, no amount of exercise will change this. On the other hand, type 2 diabetes is linked with obesity, and exercise would definitely help with the prevention of that type.
Avatar n tn Dear Andrew, 125 isn't so far out of range to be concerned. Many diabetics keep their blood sugars from 70 to 150. i wouldn't consider this to be anything to worry over, as it isn't going to do you any harm and is in the normal range. So count your blessings as i wish i could get mine to do that every time i had fasted.
