Common Questions and Answers about What should fasting blood glucose levels be


Avatar n tn Can you know if they have type 2 by testing after workout? If so what should the levels be to determine they have diabetes.
Avatar n tn A fasting glucose test will give a fairly accurate reading of the amount of excess glucose floating around your blood streams. A measurement of 5.0 mmol/l is considered normal, not diabetic.
1305767 tn?1361192676 Sounds like your pancreas is doing exactly what it should - keeping your blood sugar levels less than 100 and steady. Normal average blood sugar is around 83! Don't challenge yourself with these sort of sweets too often though. It's not good for you.
Avatar n tn Levels between 100 and 126 mg/dl are referred to as impaired fasting glucose or pre-diabetes. These levels are considered to be risk factors for type 2 diabetes and its complications. Diabetes is typically diagnosed when fasting blood glucose levels are 126 mg/dl or higher. Note: mg/dL = milligrams per deciliter" Weight control and diet play a large, large part in controlling diabetes. For reading on diabetes control go here http://tinyurl.
Avatar f tn I should add, postprandial levels to aim for are <141 mg/dl, optimum <121 mg/dl
1461994 tn?1285897132 ve been on Interferon/Ribavarin therapy for 3 weeks now for HCV Genotype 2B. When I started, my glucose was 78 but it jumped to 90 this week. Is this normal? Should I be concerned that I'm going to develop diabetes if I continue with tx for 21 more weeks? My blood sugar has always been in the 70's or 80's, no family history of diabetes, I'm 59, thin and in good physical condition otherwise.
Avatar f tn I am sure the doctor will get back to you, but you really have to make sure and show this to your child's doctor. I have learned that the blood sugars he is having are not normal and he needs to be seen tomorrow. He needs the follow up testing asap and needs an A1C test. This shows the average blood sugar over the last few months. It showed my daughter to have a glucose intolerance. Good Luck. Becky This is on the american diabetes association website.
Avatar f tn Im a t2 diabetic n that is high even after eating it should be 130 or less 1hour after eating and in fasting it should be 90 or less i would call doctor n tell how high ur sugars are cuase that can harm baby
Avatar m tn Hello! I just found out that my glucose level is 125. Should I be worried? My father had diabetes and now my mother has it. I am 48 yrs old and am trying to lose weight, but it hasn't been going well. If 125 is bad, please post suggestions for me to try. Thank you!
468796 tn?1220029445 Overall cholesterol is normal under 200. HDL should be 45 - 90. LDL should be between 0 and 100. Your TSH is high. It really should be 3.5 or less. Did your endocronologist discuss these results with you yet? She/He should address the high insulin. Even if they don't, you should as you definelty don't want to head down the Type 2 diabetes path. Also, you can google "Insulin Resistance" and find tons of info about it. I hope some of that helped.
Avatar n tn In the event that you had a fasting blood glucose test, a dimension somewhere in the range of 70 and 100 mg/dL (3.9 and 5.6 mmol/L) is viewed as ordinary. In the event that you had an arbitrary blood glucose test, an ordinary outcome relies upon when you last ate. More often than not, the blood glucose level will be underneath 125 mg/dL (6.
Avatar n tn I know that normal blood insulin levels should be 1-5 fasting, however mine is 3. Should I be concerned with it this low? At one time my endrocrinologist told me , after my fasting insulin level was12, that she wanted it down to 5 or I would have to go on Glucophage and to stay away from any sugar. Also she said if I had to have something sweet to eat a protein with it. Should I be concerned that it is below 5?
Avatar m tn 8-10 hrs with no food or colored liquids. Normally first thing in morning before breakfast. Fasting and preprandial - 60/70 to 99 mg/dl Prediabetes - 100 to 125 mg/dl Diabetes - above 126 mg/dl 1b.Glucose levels Postprandial [2-3 hours post meal] Diabetics <141 mg/dl, optimum <121 mg/dl A 'normal' nondiabetic would average <99 mg/dl 1c. Random testing is useless. Test before walking then 15-20 mins after when your body has come to rest.
231441 tn?1333892766 HHi Sally, It looks like you are doing good job of trying to optimize your health prior to trying to become pregnant,and that is definitely to be commended. A fasting of 100 mg/dL is just on the borderline of slight abnormality(impaired fasting glucose), as are your post-meal levels in the 150's(impaired glucose tolerance). I do suggest repeating the glucose tolerance test prior to trying to become pregnant, and also continuing to try to lose some weight.
Avatar m tn Also testing two hours after meals is a good way of seeing how different foods affect your blood glucose and knowing then what is good and not so good for you to eat. So bottom line is there is no absolute time you have to test but it does provide you with important information about managing your diabetes.
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?
Avatar m tn My doctor just started me on Tricor and my blood sugar levels have gone up as well. Prior to being on Tricor, my fasting blood sugar has always been between 89 and 101. Now they range from 119 to 125. Any thoughts on alternative medications to lower high tryglicerides?
Avatar f tn but only by one point, the doctors like it 150 and lower, however, some labs give a higher value than others. LDL cholesterol levels should be less than 100 mg/dL. Levels of 100 to 129 mg/dL are acceptable for people with no health issues but may be of more concern for those with heart disease or heart disease risk factors. As to the white blood cell counts, I really don't know at all. Again, your doctor will be better to ask.
1538488 tn?1331483305 You need to see an Endocrinologist for blood work. Your glucose levels are high, and the sooner you start treatment the better.
Avatar n tn I assume your mother had her blood work done after overnight fasting and before she ingested food or liquids onther than water. If that is true and her: (in your words) "Glucose is 180." she could have diabetes. Her next step should be to see her doctor about both the high cholesterol and the elevated glucose levels.
Avatar n tn I have the same but no panic attacks , it all to do with eating I believe ..
