Can Coffee Raise Your Glucose Level
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)
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

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

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

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

Who told you that?: Melissa, you're an adult now. You need to learn not to believe everything that folks tell you. Claims not well-attested at mainstream medical sites / textbooks are probably lies, like this one. Much of this stuff is actually made up as pranks. If your liver enzymes are up, it's critical that an explanation be sought at once, so as not to miss serious, treatable illness. Be discerning. Glad u wrote ...Read more
Hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) may raise glucose levels. Never had this borderline problem before til taking this hypertensive med. What diuretic substitute should I ask for?
HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) and glucose: I would have your physician check your hemoglobin a1c to see if you have any diabetes while taking. Hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) (h). Another option is a diuretic called chlorthiadone (c), which does not raise glucose (g) levels. At age 59, you may have some chronic kidney disease (ckd) which would make both h and c ineffective. Ask your doctor if you have CKD and could be put on Furosemide alone, as it does not raise g. ...Read more
