Normal non fasting blood glucose

Common Questions and Answers about Normal non fasting blood glucose


Avatar n tn thanks for that but does not answer question about whether the level will increase or decrease from random(non fasting).
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 m tn 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. The answer to your question is that it doesn't matter whether they call it non fasting or fasting glucose test result.
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...
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 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 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.
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 my fasting glucose was normal, but my A1c indicated pre-diabetes. I managed to bring my A1c down to a normal level by watching my carb intake. I wish I could give you more information.
Avatar f tn Everyone agrees that normal 8-10 hr fasting (prandial) glucose ranges are 70-99 mg/dl. Then we have 2-4 hours after meal (postprandial) which is 140-145 mg/dl. This is what you father should aiming for. BUT, and I say but because with your pregnancy it has a different outcome. An Endocrinologist (diabetes specialist) should be seen to get an expert opinion.
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 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 m tn of normal. Normal for fasting glucose level range is around 72 to 99 and up to 140 two hours after eating. You sound within normal to me. Have you been concerned for any reason? Did you recently get this lab work done? Tell us more!
999058 tn?1257563650 Hello, You don't need to do a Glucose tolerance test, what you can do is test him 2 hours after eating a normal meal and also fasting levels. Fasting should be < 90 for a child and 2 hours after eating should be < 120. If his numbers are higher, then restrict carbs, make sure he drinks plenty of water and get him in to see his Dr asap. If you measure readings over 300 you can take him to the ER.
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 n tn Glucose rise with age? No. I don't know of anyone who consistently hits the same fasting number every single time. Fasting levels between 70 (some say 72) and 100 are considered good. Keep in mind the optimum number is in the middle. The closer you are to 70 or 100 you run the risk. Nutrition and exercise are the keys to a healthy non-diabetic body.
Avatar n tn My fasting glucose levels over the years have been between 75-85, my reading Sun (which was NON-fasting) was 140...Will glucose be elevated generally if there hasn't been fasting?... 2. What do some of these other numbers/readings mean, they are from the ER report: Serum Protein EPP - 7.
Avatar n tn There are several ways you can diagnose diabetes. Your level last night after one cup of soda is more representative of a random blood glucose. A random glucose of >200mg/dL with symptoms of diabetes is diagnostic of Type 2 Diabetes. Therefore, from that one measure, you do not have Type 2 Diabetes. However, your fasting sugar is within the pre-diabetic range. Are you pregnant? You posted in the gestation diabetes section which is diabetes within pregnancy. Hope that helps!
Avatar n tn One takes the A1c test at given time, fasting or not fasting. The A1c will measure back three months the amount of glucose in your blood stream, the results are shown in percentile. Can't cheat on this test. Hope this answers your thoughts.
Avatar n tn I understand it can be scary to have a blood glucose reading that appears higher than normal. However a single plasma glucose reading is not enough to diagnose you with diabetes. Diabetes is usually diagnosed based on symptoms of hyperglycemia (blurred vision, frequent urination, headache, fatigue) and a random fasting plasma glucose reading > 200 mg/dL or ≥ 1 of the following: A1c reading ≥ 6.
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 Many folks look to the fasting BG (blood glucose) reading as the indicator for diabetes. In recent years, however, there's an interest in doing what's called a 2-hour post-prandial (after eating) blood test, since those are often affected sooner than one's fasting test. If any of your diabetic family members live close enuf, perhaps you can test 2 hours after a meal with them.
Avatar n tn the normal range is 70-110
Avatar n tn In general, if your blood sugar level is below 100 mg / dL after fasting for at least 8 to 10 hours, then your blood sugar is normal. Blood sugar levels are usually lowest before each meal.
