What do high blood glucose levels mean

Common Questions and Answers about What do high blood glucose levels mean


Avatar f tn I just received a call from the OB/GYN nurse that said the doctor wants to put me on 750mg of Metformin because my (I think) blood glucose levels was too high. I asked her what was the normal range and she said 0.0 - 24 and mine was a 27.8. What does that mean? She also said that my Vitamin D levels was low and that I needed to take a supplement that contains 5,000IU's daily in it. I was pretty much left like that. Not a whole lot of explanation or nothing!
Avatar n tn Diet and exercise can help to lower and control sugar levels and high blood pressure, but this does not mean that he can stop taking his medications. His doctor is the best person to advise him because his doctor will be monitoring his sugar levels and blood pressure on a regularly basis, if not, then he should be (about once a year if everything is stable). With diabetes, it also depends which type he has. Type 2 diabetes can be controlled by diet and exercise, but not always.

1773108 tn?1314158067 Good Morning, I have a question about high blood sugar levels that don't seem to stabilize. My boyfriend has been struggling for years with high blood sugar. He told me this morning that his level was at 480+!!!! He says he doesn't feel any different whether it's high or low. The lowest it's been (to my knowledge) is still in the high range of 200+.
Avatar n tn It sounds as if you have a glucometer since you said you have checked his glucose levels. Do you know what is considered "normal" in glucose readings? Glucose levels for non-diabetics and for diabetic people go up and down all day long. Most doctors don't consider glucose levels to be too low unless they drop below 70, but a person can start to feel a little bit bad if in the low 70's, so this might explain why your son didn't feel like eating when his sugar was at 73.
576054 tn?1217783138 My doctor will be doing tests in a few weeks, but I have had some fairly high glucose levels lately. I also have a history of high blood pressure although that has been better most of the time lately. Tonight all of a sudden I started having a terrible headache and nausea. My glucose level was somewhat high. So either this was due to the glucose levels or due to high blood pressure. Whatever it is, I am so tired of being sick and tired all of the time.
7194949 tn?1397945586 then you drink the drink they give you and wait an hour. Then you get your blood drawn. if your glucose is too high, then you do the 3 hour one. It's the same thing but they draw your blood 3 different times. I have my 3 hour one next week too.
Avatar f tn my Dr says I have high sugar. What does that mean? Is it bad? What is gonna be different about my pregnancy? What should I do? Help me please!
Avatar m tn I had a full blood check up last week and my glucose levels came back as high for a morning reading at 9.2. I had some more tests today including a fasting test and a hba something or other. My question is soe this now mean i have diabetes. I am very much a night person regularly up til 4 in the morning and eating and drinking before i go to bed. I am white, not over weight and have no family history.
Avatar n tn One more note of advice -- you cannot COUNT on this happening, so a low is very possible if you count on it like you count on eating a muffin to raise glucose levels. It really depends on what else is going on in your life at that moment, whether adrenals are stimulated and for me, whether I am drinking coffee with food or not.
Avatar n tn My HDLC is 38 mg/dL What does this mean? My Hemoglobin A1c is 6.2 % What does this mean?
Avatar n tn There are several tests that they can do that are simple that can tell if you are have high blood sugars or if you are diabetic. The ranges of acceptable blood sugars usually depend on your age and sometimes build.
Avatar f tn I falied both my 1 and 3 hour test :( both times my glucose levels were high. So I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Are u scheduled for the 3 hour one?
Avatar m tn It's not uncommon for a type 2 diabetic's glucose to be high in the AM. It's called the "dawn effect." Make sure you start looking at food labels. Try not to eat carbs after 6PM or so. If you want a snack, eat cheese or some other protein--no carbs. Find out the difference between "good carbs" and "bad carbs." (White bread, processed food, ice cream, regular soda, candy, etc.
446335 tn?1223948356 after the finger stick. Then they give me the glucose and do 3 additional draws. None of those blood draws point to diabetes yet the finger stick did. Tomorrow I'll call and get those 4 numbers and see if it makes sense. I think I may ask for a retest in a month or so just to confirm there's no problem and see how diet/exercise focus will affect my numbers. And I like your idea of getting the HgbA1c test for peace of mind. I can see asking my Dr.
Avatar m tn I have had high trygicerides for a while but never even colse to high sugar levels. I started taking Tricor a couple of weeks ago and now I have high glucose levels, can Tircor cause this?
Avatar m tn The body recognizes intense exercise as a stress and releases stress hormones that tells your body to increase available blood glucose to fuel your muscles. If your glucose levels exceed normal levels discuss with your doctor medication or medication adjustment.
Avatar n tn ORG website giving some examples of the danger of high blood sugars, other than that, there is nothing more you can do, until she wants to do something to help herself.
Avatar m tn Your doctor can order an HbA1C blood test that shows the average blood glucose levels in the blood over a period of 9-12 weeks. The red corpuscles get renewed in that time period and the glucose sticks to the old blood cells. Having diabetes is not a death-sentence. But life style changes need to be made with regard to diet and exercise.
452066 tn?1400626877 I really have no idea if there can be a connection but if you want to check glucose levels you should do fasting and two hours after a meal. Normal fasting should be under a 100 (diabetic is over 126). Normal postprandial would be under 120. Just an off the cuff question about your arrythmia after meals. Do you also have symptoms of acid reflux?
