Avatar f tn my husband was 2yrs post liver transplant, that is the one reason why he is also now suffering from monitor blood sugar problem. my question now is about fluctition of his blood glucose, we have a kit monitoring it before and after meal, but there was time when we check it is high then after just a minute it drop down, we are really worried why is this happening? hoping that anyone could help!
Avatar f tn Have you ever tried testing your blood sugar during these episodes? A home monitor is very inexpensive. Usually when I have low blood sugar episodes (or that's what they feel like since I don't have true hypoglycemia - sweating, feeling faint, shaking - my blood sugar is only between 65-70) That might ease your mind or indeed confirm that you are experiencing low blood sugar. I suffer from severe anxiety/panic (specifically over health).
Avatar f tn The True Track meter is good, it is the one I like the best and is not that expensive, neither are the test strips, some of the machines and strips are very expensive and no better than the little True Track. Do you have a blood pressure monitor, if not, they are not very expensive either and it would be great to check that as well during the episodes.
Avatar n tn The only advice i would give is that if you are going to be doing drugs or alcohol make sure that your friends know how to help you out should you have a hypo and also keep a blood glucose monitor handy because certain drugs will be cut with glucose etc that will mess around with your control.
Avatar f tn I failed my glucose screen too! I just got the results from my 3 hour test today. Whew....passed. My understanding is that quite a few people (up to 25%) fail the initial glucose tolerance screen but very few fail the 3 hour test. I'm sure you'll pass too! Sorry but btw the 3 hour test is horrible, just sitting and waiting and 4 blood collections. BOO!
961466 tn?1247550382 I would be asking your Dr for the glucagon kit so that you can rectify your wife's lows when she is not able to. Using glucose tablets, even glucose syrup plus calling an ambulance when you need to is important. Its one thing to think you're okay or try to ignore the problems but you are obviously worried. I don't mean to appear rude but does your wife deal okay with actually having diabetes?

Avatar m tn Hello, I am very concerned about my blood glucose levels. I am diabetic and I haven't been keeping track of my blood glucose levels for years. For the last month or so, I had been feeling totally exhausted, falling asleep at the computer, several times I actually fell asleep with food in my mouth that I hadn't chewed. I was weak and out of breath and could barely walk without getting winded.
Tbd The startup kit was only $19.99, and my doctor just gave me the kit. The test strips are a little more expensive, but they are more accurate than other monitors. The start up kit also came with a discount card than lowered the test strips to about $15 per 50 test strips. I only test once a day in the morning unless I have any issues, so the test strips last a little longer than one that needs to test 3+ times per day.
Avatar f tn I just realized that I haven't seen my diabetes specialist in about three years. On my last visit she "discharged" me to the care of my internist. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 5 years ago, at age 62. My glucose levels are stable at around 110, hB!ac 5.9. I've recently lost 25 kg, do some mild exercise and feel good. I'm taking metformin twice a day (750 mg).
Avatar n tn When I wake up my blood sugars are in the mid 50s. After breakfast they hover around 76 or 82. They rarely ever go above 86 ever. Once a day they may hit 115 if I eat bread ..stay there briefly to go back down to the 70s. I am not on a specialty diet nor do I do keto. I usually eat a lot of fruit and seafood. Once average my glucose monitor tells me my daily averages are around 75. What do you think I have? Am I in a pre-diabetic state and my panaceas is just pumping out insulin?
Avatar n tn I personally use the Accu-chek Softclix lancing device and find that it works well for me. I had to work with the settings to get the setting that gives me a good drop of blood without going too deep, though, and you will have to do the same. Any new system will take some adjustment. As for the Accu-chek Compact, I personnally don't know about that particular glucose monitor. However, I use the Accu-chek Advantage and am happy with it.
Avatar f tn I get my heart rate up once a day by fast walking for half an hour and ive noticed the worst food for me is Potatoe chips. Invest in home blood pressure kit too that way you can monitor the effects of the food you eat and good luck.
Avatar n tn This machine will calculate exactly how much you ate in your meal, because a tiny blue tooth infrared camera which will be planted in your stomach will transmit info of exactly what went in to your system. This type of glucose which will be in the pump will get into your entire bloodstream within seconds, and you will not feel any symptoms. This would be an electronic pancreas! If NASA could invent a spaceship they could definitely invent this little thing! What do you think?
Avatar n tn I want to get back to it, but at 10 min on a treadmill at a reasonable walking pace I feel my blood sugar dropping. I have a glucose monitor at it has been about 65. Endrocrinologist has said I am reactive hypoglycemic but has no reasons for it. Without exercising I run about 85-95 very consistently even when I feel like I am "running low". So, I am afraid to exercise and I miss it!!! Any advice would be appreciated.
709686 tn?1277432159 re concerned about your blood glucose levels, you can purchase a glucose monitor pretty cheaply at drug stores. I got one a few years ago for $10 at CVS. They usually come with 10 test strips and 10 lancets and instructions, which should be plenty to check your blood sugar throughout a couple of days. Extra test strips can be pricy. If you go this route, most recommend checking your blood sugar first thing in the morning (fasting) and 2 hours after meals.
Avatar m tn When I Google searched 'continuous glucose monitoring system' I received a number of hits. I also do not know what is available in the Czech Republic so you will need to research that on your own. Perhaps another forum member may respond with a better answer.
1318306 tn?1276180824 I always get 2 peak days with my CBE monitor. The first month the monitor needs to get to know your system so it responds differently. Next month it will give you more acurate results. Don't get discouraged - it's a smart little machine. I have been using mine for the last 9 months & I love it.
Avatar f tn Thank you!!! I just hate how i get i get really dizzy nauseaus and cannot feel my body and cant get up!! I no longer want to go shopping on my own!! IM SCARED!!
