Average Blood Sugar Level For Children
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
FBS: I presume you have type 1 diabetes given your age. My apologies if your doctor has said you have type 2 diabetes and he is correct. Very unlikely unless you are substantially overweight. You should check your blood sugar almost all day if you have type 1 diabetes. There is excellent safe equipment for continuous blood sugar control. Can you please give me some more information about your diabetes. ...Read more
Normal blood glucose levels for an average perso n is approximately 90mg/100ml. What is the bgl for a person with diabetes mellitus?
Same!!!: You want to aim for fasting levels of 90 or below and post meals of 120 or less. Anything above that will eventually cause damage to the body. Since this contrl is very difficult we try to aim for less than 200 after meals and about 100-105 fasting. Problem is that it still causes damage and close control may bottom out your blood sugar levels that is also a medical emergency. ...Read more
Depends: Hi. There are different normal ranges for glucose for fasting and for post-challenge (similar to after a meal, but the "challenge" glucose is 75 grams liquid glucose). 124 mg/dl is not normal for fasting, but would be normal after a meal (or 75 gram glucose challenge). Eat healthy and exercise regularly for life! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Ideally less than150: But as you know very hard to achieve. But that was not the question you asked. Normal blood stars should not be below 60 though most children will have reactions far above this number because they are used to living too hogh. A low blood sugar reaction is not caused by a number but how rapidly the blood sugar drops do a child may have a reaction at a number of 100 if they were really high before. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How high can blood sugar go 45 min after an average meal to stay in the normal range when my fasting blood sugar and long term blood sugar are low?
About 140: Any blood sugar at any time over 200 (two episodes) is diagnosed as Diabetes. Normal level for fasting is under 100. There is no standard, per se, for 45 minutes after an "average meal," but I would not like to see the number higher than the normals for a glucose tolerance test for sure. Glucose tolerance test is "normal" under 140. ...Read more

Do doctors recommend medicines to increase sugar levels in a diabetic patient whose sugar level drops?
Glucagon: Glucagon is a medication that can be given in an emergency to bring up blood sugars if a diabetic is unconscious and unable to take something by mouth. If blood sugars are dropping excessively in a diabetic it means a change has to be made in medication to avoid hypoglycemia to begin with. That is far more desirable than taking medication to bring it up once it is too low. ...Read more
Normal fasting: 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. Finger sticks are not accurate enough for diagnosis. Two hour post meal should be less than 130-140, and any glucose >200 at any time suggests diabetes. An a1c >6% is also suggestive and needs further evaluation. See diabetes.Org for info. ...Read more
Glucose: Patients on short acting insulin often check their sugar 4 times a day, while patients who use oral medications check less often. Patients whose A1c levels who are at goal may not need frequent checks. Be careful if any of your medications can cause hypoglycemia since this would require more frequent checks. ...Read more

Sugar: Hi. Are you talking about diabetes and treating hypoglycemia? I hate to guess. Insulin therapy is the BIG risk for hypoglycemia. But as you would imagine (and your doctor should have told you), treat low sugar with sugar. If you're very low but conscious, use liquid sugar (e.g., juice, sugar soda). If you're unconscious, someone can give you glucagon or call paramedics. Good luck and be safe! ...Read more
In the long term: Hi. If you run sugars in that range in the long term, then of course it's dangerous...to your eyes, kidneys, nerves, blood vessels, infection risk, amputation risk, etc. Fortunately, in the short term, it's not the least bit dangerous. If you have insulin, it's very easy to treat. If you don't, you should get some! Good luck! ...Read more
Blood sugar: Blood sugar (a test for diabetes) can be measured at various times. A fasting blood sugar should be less than 100 mg/dl, and a blood sugar taken randomly should not exceed 200 mg/dl. Blood sugar 2 hours after a meal should be less than 140. If you think you have high blood sugar, you should see your doctor for a blood draw. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
