Normal blood glucose range for non diabetics

Common Questions and Answers about Normal blood glucose range for non diabetics


Avatar n tn the normal range is 70-110
1154802 tn?1266489320 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 Hi everyone, I am a dietetic student who just finished working at a camp for children with type 1 diabetes. As part of the staff we were all given blood glucose monitors to help check the kids (even though I don't have diabetes). We were allowed to keep the monitors and I have been doing some random blood glucose checks on myself when I am not feeling well to help myself better understand lows.
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 n tn So in these people, their fasting glucose levels can be high, although for the rest of the day their bodies function just fine. This is an issue for both diabetics and non-diabetics, and some notice it more than others. You can do a Google search on the term to find out more about what causes it. It isn't anything to worry about. I just mention it because your little daughter may be one of those people whose dawn syndrome brings her sugar levels up in the mornings briefly.
Avatar n tn I am a type two diabetic. I check the blood glucose levels of my four year old son with my meter often. The levels have always been good. The other night however he ate a lot of his Halloween candy and I check his sugar a couple of hours after he had eaten it and his BG level was 159. This really worried me because his sugar levels had never been this high. I checked again in thirty minutes and it was 133. I checked it again in two hours and it was 106.
Avatar n tn I would vote for the 70-120 range being healthy, while 90-110 would be the best range for mealtime glucose numbers. You must also realize that we type 1 folks are going to have wide variation at times in blood sugar numbers. The hemoglobin a1c is actually the best overall number to look at, for the average of all the daily glucose tests gives a better picture of whether you are damaging your body or not. An occasional high number is not going to harm you, nor is an occasional low number.
Avatar n tn - With most people ,YES glucose, not sure if low thyoid levels can alter it. Blood glucose should peak two hours after eating and I believe it should be under 140 in non-diabetics..
Avatar n tn Can someone tell me what a normal glucose level for a child is? For example a child has a small bowl of cereal and then is tested within an hour of that meal. This would be after having nothing else for the prior 12 or more hours. The reading was 144. Is that considered in a normal range?
1128565 tn?1316724743 Hi All I went to a health fair and had blood taken out of my finger and the reading was 7.50. So the Dr sent me for a glucose fasting test and thank goodness it came below the range at 4.80 but I don't understand what it means?? I also have an under-active thyroid, I do get alot of tingling and numbness in my hands. Could anyone please explain these results.
Avatar f tn 0 if it is to be normal (from literature ideal non-diabetic A1Cs will be in the range of 4.1 - 4.6), yours is well above this. Please discuss seriously with your doctor about meds. Keep up with regular exercise, weight management and diet.
Avatar n tn I tend to get nervous or jittery when my blood glucose levels get to 88 - 95 range moree so at the 90 range i start to feel anxious, shaky legs etc ... almost hypoglycemic. My three month levels are normal but my fasting has gone up to 110 range. I am 40, male, not overweight although could loose 5 lbs but thats about it. Question: is my body becoming intolerant to low or what I deem normal glucose levels? Is this hypoglycemia? What is this?
Avatar n tn If you insist on perfect BG readings, it will only add to his stress, and stress can cause higher blood sugars. Normal blood sugars in non-diabetics reach 120-140 two hours after a meal, depending on how glucose is measured. Also keep in mind that BG meters and test strips are not perfectly accurate. If you take two measurements just a minute apart, you will usually see a difference of at least a few points, and often more.
92903 tn?1309908311 i have not tx'd yet and my lipids & glucose are out of normal range. there is a direct corralation with the liver and glucuse. my glucose level went as high as 120 with 126 being diabetic so i cut out sugar, carbs, etc and got it down to 103(up to 99 normal). i'm hoping to avoid becoming a diabetic. high frutose sryup is one of the worst things and is in so many foods & drinks, especially soda. they say this is one of the reasons americans are so FAT.
Avatar m tn Drugs always the solution....... I love the "pre" thing going on now. It gives the impression that the person is on the verge of progressing to worse levels, which is often NOT the case. I look at my old lab reports. 25 years ago, fasting glucose was "normal" up to 115, period. Now from 99 to 125 is PRE diabetes. Better run to the doctor for "treatment!" I had blood tests yearly for years and my fasting glucose was anywhere from 85 to 107.
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 m tn I had one of those five or six hour glucose tests. My fasting blood sugar was normal to start. After drinking that horrible stuff my blood sugar started to fall and kept falling. It went below 50 and did not start to recover (very slightly) by the time I left. My doctor ( a different genius) said I didn't have diabetes. Big surprise, right? He did not address the hypoglycemia issue considering it unimportant, or nonexistent. So I bought a book by Carton Fredericks and took care of it myself.
Avatar n tn However, from what I can gather in doing some research is that an elevated level of insulin means that your body does not use insulin well, even if your glucose levels are in the normal range. I don't know exactly what the normal range is for an insulin level, but it seems like your daughter may by hypoglycemic. Has the doctor formally diagnosed her with it?
Avatar n tn Test 2-3 hours after eating when sugars from foods you ate have plateaued in your blood stream. Normal levels for non-diabetics are same as above For diabetics the goal is <141 mg/dl, or 7.83 mmol/l. Optimum is <121 mg/dl, or 7.72 mmol/l. If you can obtain normal levels then you get a big attaboy/attagirl. Low levels are below 60 mg/dl, or 3.33 mmol/l. Below 40 mg/dl, or 2.22 mmol/l is considered dangerous/life threatening. Post back to this thread if you need further clarification.
212161 tn?1476095111 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 I am now on three! medicines for my blood pressure - Altace, Norvasc and imipramine. With all that I am barely in normal range. The endocrinologist wants to continue the tesosterone but that stuff causes more symptoms than it cures. He also wants to treat the metabolic disorder with something that lowers the insulin. I felt so bad this morning that I actually had the thought that maybe a small dose of Riba would help.
Avatar f tn // As far elevated glucose levels in non-diabetics? Illness, stress, even certain medications can elevate levels in all people.
Avatar n tn Everyone reacts differently. As long as it does not go really high or really low you are ok. Normal range for a NON-diabetic is like 80-100 I think. If you keep exercising and taking care of yourself hopefully you can avoid diabetes and heart disease for the rest of your life. Best of luck and keep up the good start !!
Avatar n tn Here is some more information on blood glucose ranges and blood sugar testing for you from and the Sugar Sense app. If you enter enough data over enough days, our app gives you an average A1C -- this is your 3 month average amount of glucose in your blood. It's likely a better measure than the daily averages from your meter, as Mindmaster points out. Here's a little more about the A1C: http://www.medhelp.
125112 tn?1217277462 I am simply not accustomed to getting sick. It...really frustrates me. The day before I was seen for the UTI/Kidney infection, I lay in bed and while my husband was rubbing my back...I just cried. Asking, "Why am I falling apart?" I feel helpless, tired and clueless. You know, I did read a post of yours speaking of blood sugar & monitors. I was looking at a "Accu-Chek Active Monitoring Kit" Are you familiar with this one?
Avatar f tn The A1c measures the average BG, Having high BG 200 and low BG 56 can average out to a normal A1c. There is another test for diabetes its called the OGTT (Oral Glucose Tolerances Test) BG over 200 is diabetes Find out if your local hospital has a diabetes department, go in tell them your symptoms and meter readings and see if they will give you an OGTT. You are doing great. A meter is a good start.
798555 tn?1292791151 "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 f tn Anyway, this one doctor has said that he sees it in his practice all the time, i.e., patients whose fasting glucose is normal and who also test normal with the glucose tolerance test, however, their A1c is over 5.7. Also, I read that people whose blood is low in iron can also test falsely high on their A1c. I checked out my blood results and my iron level is barely above the low cutoff for normal. So, I wonder if that has anything to do with my higher A1c.
Avatar n tn But you can only test this properly AFTER you've adjusted your levemir and have your non-eating (basal) blood sugar stable. Becuase for now the humalog is replacing too low basal insulin. 1-2 unit increase in levemir is not going to make a big change in anthing considering you already take 22 units. But still you need to increase slowly over a period of days - weeks. I think it is anxiety that made your feel bad. Please consider to split the levemir into 2 doses, each of 11 units.
Avatar f tn It means that your blood sugars have consistently been within normal ranges for the last three months. Your blood sugar was slightly elevated at 149, but it was only one hour after eating. It is best to wait 2 hours after eating to take an after meal blood test. Right now your numbers are within normal, healthy ranges. Stay away from processed flour, high fructose corn syrup (READ ALL LABELS THIS STUFF IS IN EVERYTHING) and sugar-- and you should be okay.
