When need I monitor blood glucose level?

Diabetes?: If you have diabetes it depends on treatment. On Insulin we ask our patients to test @ home upon waking up on the morning, all meals, and bedtime. On oral medication it is really doctor dependent. Some would ask for fasting blood sugars and 2 hour post meal sugars a few times/ wk perhaps at home. Without diabetes you don't have to do home checks, but follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

What to do if I have blood glucose level after fasting 113 for a normal weight 32 year old male. Is this pre-diabetic?

What to do if I have blood glucose level after fasting 113 for a normal weight 32 year old male. Is this pre-diabetic?

Yes: Any fasting blood glucose level within the impaired fasting glucose range, 101-125 mg/dl, qualifies one for pre-diabetic. The presence of fatty liver disease, chronic pancreatitis, early/latent autoimmune diabetes, or iron overload should be considered in a normal weight physically active young adult individual. Low carb diet and increased exercise can help. Need to see your doctor to run tests. ...Read more

Is a score of 4.4 too low for blood glucose level?

See below.: In the U.S., we usually express measurements in milligrams/deciliter and, since you're writing from Florida, I assume those are the units used. If your blood glucose level were 4.4 mg/dl, you'd no longer be among the living, so I think you're referring to your HgA1C, the test we use to determine long term glucose control. The normal range is 3.5-6.0%. A measurement of 4.4% is NOT too low. ...Read more
