2 Hour Postprandial Glucose Level
That would be normal: If from a vein, finger-sticks aren't fully accurate. Normal 65-105 when drawn out of a vein while fasting. Various authorities have different "normal" levels. There are, however, no exact cut-offs, it's all a continuium. Two hour post meal should be less than 130-140, and any glucose >200 at any time suggests diabetes. An a1c >6% is also suggests diabetes. ...Read more
The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. The body naturally tightly regulates blood glucose levels as a part of metabolic homeostasis. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and blood lipids (in the form of fats and oils) are primarily ...Read more
Suffering from diabiaties type 2 fasting glucose level 115 mg/dl after food 128mg/dl but still I lose my weight and last 1 month I no using my tablet?
Type 2 diabetes: Your fasting and post meal glu values are rather good. It appears you have discovered that weight loss and diet (and exercise?) is more powerful than medications for blood sugar control. It would be nice if you can get your fasting glu below 100. But you should still be talking to your doctor. There is more to diabetes than blood sugar. Blood pressure? cholesterol? Eyes? Feet? Kidneys? ...Read more
What conditions may cause the 2 hr postprandial glucose level become lower than the fasting level in sb with a family history of DM and Psoriasis?
My post-prandial Glucose level (92 mg/dL) is lower than fasting Glucose (69mg/dL). I have most of the symptoms of hypoglycemia. Is there any treatment?
Whoa: Your fasting glucose at 69 is lower than your post-prandial glucose at 92 -- is there a typo? I'd urge you not to self-diagnose the fad diagnosis "hypoglycemia", but to read up on post-prandial syndrome which is real, not a lab diagnosis, and responds best to getting help managing stress, staying physically fit, limiting caffeine, and perhaps carrying a snack (raisins are great). ...Read more
Had the gtt, glucose levels are within range; fasting insulin is 8 and postprandial is 144 mu/ml, what is wrong?
Not diagnostic: Seems like the post-prandial Insulin level is high, but it doesn't mean much without the concomitant blood sugars measured with it. Likewise, the fasting Insulin level isn't helpful without the associated blood sugar. Submitting the lab blood sugars that pair up with the Insulin levels might be more helpful. ...Read more

Get formal testing:
One test value is non-diagnostic, and also please confirm the units of measurement. However, in general:
Above 5.5 mmol/L is considered mildly high and you should get formal testing done.
If the measurement is in mg/dL, over 110 mg/dL is considered high enough to get additional testing done.
A side note - this is a fasting glucose, which we interpret differently than after meal glucose. ...Read more
Is it true that 5 grams of table sugar will not raise your blood glucose level? (Assuming nothing else consumed with it--just the 5 g of sugar)
Will wearing a arch cradle in my shoes increase glucose level in type 2 diabetes? I recently retired from a office job and are walking a lot now between 10 and 20km a day this caused foot issues
Exercise is good: If you are having foot issues, arch supports can help but they must be properly fitted. Not over the counter. Custom orthoses are the way to go, especially if you have Diabetes Mellitus. Exercise works your muscle and make them active burners of glucose. Exercising muscle does not require insulin. 5-AMP activated kinase is an enzyme that facilitates metabolism in active muscle. ...Read more
Yes, see below::
Yes, there is evidence that both of these are effective in lowering blood sugar. Most of the studies on bitter melon are animal studies so more research is needed but many have found it effective- see http://tinyurl. Com/zygunvx and look at the 2013 article it links to.
The evidence on cinnamon is more contradictory. Like all medicines, it helps some more than others: http://tinyurl. Com/h8h29fj ...Read more
I’m 49 with high blood pressure, checked my glucose level before meal and was 6.4. Is my reading high? Should I need to see my GP?
Yes you should: This value that you reported does not have any units with it....please recheck the report and see if it is AIC level which is an indirect test for diabetes. it is better to get a fasting Blood sugar test also. That will make it easier for your GP to confirm if you have Pre-diabetes. If your fasting Glucose level is >100mg, that means you have an abnormal blood sugar which requires medical attentio ...Read more

84 yrs. Pancreas atrophy. Type 2 controlled by diet for 8 years. Fasting glucose 91 but postprandial is now 175 after 2 hours. A1c been 5.9 previous.
Try Metformin: Metformin is an Insulin receptor sensitizer, and blocks the release of sugar from the liver (via glyconeogenesis). By taking metformin, Insulin works "better, " and your pancreas is given somewhat of a "rest." it should normalize your blood sugar, HGB a1c, and lower your Insulin levels. You might also add Acarbose (a "starch blocker") to help maintain normal blood sugar. ...Read more

Non diabetic. 4 recent blood tests. First 2 postprandial, last 2 fasting. Post glucose in 70s, fasting in 90s. Why would glucose be higher b4 food?
Morning glucose: Is due to glucose your liver puts out overnite and inbetween meals so that your sugar stays stable during these times. Also, you won't die of low glucose if fasting. After meal sugar is lower due to Insulin your body puts out to cover the meal. Don't worry, all your numbers are excellent and normal. ...Read more
Glucose monitoring: The whole purpose of monitoring your blood sugar levels is to let the doctor know what they are running so that the doctor can adjust your medications. Having good blood sugar control is essential in preventing complications. If the doctor isn't getting those values then I would wonder why you're checking it also. Bring in the averages or ranges of blood sugars when you see your doc. ...Read more
