Went to ER been having fevers around 102 said prob viral, blood test showed my blood sugar was 170 only thing I had in hours was a gatorade scared?

Follow-up with your doc. ...Read more

Dear doctor, I am 29 years old man, my blood test result (alt sgpt) is 51. How can I reduce my level, I don't have pressur/sugar/cholestrol.?
Not very abnormal.: There is no way to "lower" liver enzyme levels when they are barely elevated. One should always take care to avoid liver toxins such as alcohol and tylenol (acetaminophen) in excess. You should redraw your liver tests agian in a month to see if everything is back to normal. If your levels remain mildly elevated, it might make sense to screen you for the usual culprits, fatty liver and hepatitis b and c. ...Read more

Fasting blood sugar level was 110. Typically in mid 90s. Was nervous/anxious just prior to test. Could this cause a spike? At home I'm always ~82.
Calibration?: Cortisol has been associated with stress & blood sugar; however, the variations are relatively small & can fluctuate throughout the day. Similar to blood pressure readings, which may rise in the doctors office due to stress, a blood sugar reading in the office should be checked more than once, & taken in context, when deciding to treat it. A hemoglobin A1C can show 3 month average blood sugar. ...Read more

Why is glucose screening test done exactly at 1hr? Does blood sugar level only peak then? After that does it drop or can it increase further?
Just a standard way.: Blood glucose testing can be done prior to eating (when you are fasting) and the "1 hour after" is only because it has been done this way for many years and will give a typical indication of your response to eating. It can go much higher in some diabetics and even higher in normal people at an hour after eating. The usual and in my view better indication of your blood sugar status is the HgbA1c ...Read more
