Blood Sugar (Definition)

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

I recently was told that I had high insulin resistance and low fasting glucose levels. What does this mean?

I recently was told that I had high insulin resistance and low fasting glucose levels. What does this mean?

Pre diabetes: Insulin resistance is the precursor to type 2 diabetes. It is estimated that people who eventually develop diabetes have had Insulin resistance for at least 10-15 yrs beforehand. Obesity, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol, and high fasting glucose are indicators of Insulin resistance (if you have at least 3 out of 5). Weight loss and exercise are essential for treating. ...Read more

Is there a quick, natural (Without insulin or prescriptions) way to lower glucose levels when elevated?

Is there a quick, natural (Without insulin or prescriptions) way to lower glucose levels when elevated?

Yes: In a word, exercise. Remember your muscle tissues require glucose as energy to contract. If you have a mildly elevated blood sugar, exercise will reduce the level of blood sugar within 30 minutes to an hour. No matter what your diabetes treatment is, you can utilize exercise to reduce blood sugar. Try it now. Check your blood sugar, walk one hour, then recheck. See the difference? ...Read more

What could be the reason for elevated glucose levels @ about 7.5 mml even though one has not changed lifestyle in terms of diet, medication and exe?

What could be the reason for elevated glucose levels @ about 7.5 mml even though one has not changed lifestyle in terms of diet, medication and exe?

Diabetes treatment: You have diabetes and are taking metformin. A glu of 7.5 (135 mg/dl) is a relatively good level. It is better to follow your a1c. If you have only had diabetes a few years, and are only on metformin, you should aim for an a1c less than 7.5. Focus on exercise and diet. Your glu will vary day to day. Perhaps stress. But take a long term approach. ...Read more

Could elevated glucose levels cause a person to get lethargic even nod out suddenly (i have sle)?

Could elevated glucose levels cause a person to get lethargic even nod out suddenly (i have sle)?

Yes: Both high and low blood sugar can cause you to feel lethargic. "nod out" is more of a low blood sugar problem although high blood sugar can cause dehydration/low blood pressure which can indirectly cause the "nod out". The only way to know is to check your blood sugar at these times to see what the levels are. ...Read more

Hi, I recently got a blood test done and it says I have a low mcv value, does it mean I have thalassemia? Also I have high blood glucose levels.

Hi, I recently got a blood test done and it says I have a low mcv value, does it mean I have thalassemia? Also I have high blood glucose levels.

Incomplete info: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it would have helped to have all the results including MCV value. Also need Hb level, and tests for iron. To make a diagnosis of thalassemia, would need Hb electrophoresis too. ...Read more

What are some of the physiological effects of high / low blood glucose levels?

Many: High bs can lead to glucosuria (spelling of sugar in the urine) and on the long turn if persistent, enodothelial damage (inner wall of the blood vessels). Low bs on the other hand, can trigger a cascade of chemical reactions, namely ketone formation, elevated adrenaline, growth hormone, cortisol and sympathetic nervous system activation. ...Read more
