Could I be diabetic with a fasting glucose of 94?

Could I be diabetic with a fasting glucose of 94?

Unlikely: We don't typically follow 1 number to diagnose diabetes but a fasting sugar of 94 is normal and is not in the diabetes range. Fasting sugar > 126, random blood sugar > 200 (with symptoms like thirst, excess urine output, weight loss) or a test called hemoglobin A1c > 6.5% will give you the diagnosis of diabetes. An oral glucose tolerance test is another test you can do to diagnose diabetes. ...Read more

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

Could I have diabetes if my fasting glucose is sometimes around 6.6 and daytime glucose levels are normal?

Could I have diabetes if my fasting glucose is sometimes around 6.6 and daytime glucose levels are normal?

Impaired glucose tol: A fasting glucose over 7 mmol/l on two occasions would be considered diabetes. A level of 6.6 would be impaired glucose tolerance. I would get a hba1c, if above 6.5, you have diabetes. In any event, a no concentrated sweets diet is in order, and if you are overweight, you must lose weight. Do regular exercise. ...Read more

If my Fasting glucose is126 and my AC1 is 60 am I diabetic?

Diabetes: A hgbA1c of 6 is at the upper limits of normal and correlates with an fbs of 126. This may signify a borderline or prediabetic status. You could do a glucose tolerance test to see how your system handles a sugar load. Nevertheless I would consider yourself to be prediabetic and strive for ideal body weight, avoid concentrated sweets and decrease intake of starches and repeat your HgbA1c in 3 month ...Read more

What is a normal fasting glucose am reading? I've read anywhere from 72-108 and 100 and below. I'm diabetic so I like to test in the am once a month.

A1c better: It is good that you are testing your control of diabetes. Normal fasting blood sugar is less than 100, however for long term control of diabetes, testing for hemoglobin A1c every 3-4 months is better and you should aim for A1c level of less than 7.0 ...Read more

Could you have diabetes if your fasting glucose level and hba1c levers are normal?

Unlikely: If both HbA1c and fasting glucose are normal you are most likely fine. Occasionally people are having much higher sugars AFTER they eat (measured 2 hours) and are diabetic without knowing it. This would have been reflected in the A1c though which is why I think you're probably fine! ...Read more

What fasting glucose level is normal for pre-diabetic and diabetic?

It's all one: Disorder; only the name changes as your sugar gets higher. The health risks don't change as the name changes, you're at the same risk right from the beginning - that's why it's important not to wait but begin diet, exercise, weight loss and education now. See diabetes.Org for the numbers if you absolutely feel you need them. ...Read more

My fasting glucose is 93-95, then it goes 109 after exercise, is that normal? I am not diabetic.

My fasting glucose is 93-95, then it goes 109 after exercise, is that normal? I am not diabetic.

Yes: Exercise lowers glucose, but the body responds to lowered glucose by dumping more glucose into the blood stream, which can raise sugar slightly for a period of time. Also finger stick glucoses are not that accurate. It may be an aggressive response to exercise that can be seen in people who are already overweight and Insulin resistant. ...Read more

Fasting glucose typically around 93-97.Under the old guidelines that was OK, but now aren't those levels considered pre-diabetic or IGT?

Fasting glucose typically around 93-97.Under the old guidelines that was OK, but now aren't those levels considered pre-diabetic or IGT?

Still normal: Fasting glucose below 100 is normal. You may improve your glucose tolerance through exercise and weight loss. Of the two regular aerobic exercise is more important.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Usually my fasting glucose is between 93 and 97. few weeks ago it was 97. then just couple of weeks later it was 104 first time ever in the pre-diabetic range. It is strange to have a rise of seven points like this in only two weeks?

Not that accurate: There are many factors which influence the blood sugar what you ate, difference in time, if the finger is clean, etc. The difference between 97 and 104 is not significant and is within the error rate of the test If over 120 then we need to check you ...Read more

Can impaired fasting glucose be cured? If not how to stop it from developing type 2 diabetes

Diet, weight loss: Impaired fasting glucose is a warning sign that you are at risk of diabetes. Typically, being overweight or eating a high carb diet can exacerbate this problem. If there is a family history of diabetes, that also increases your risk. Weight control is essential, and you should minimize carbs and sugars like soda, alcohol, bread, pasta, rice, and desserts. Regular exercise is also beneficial. ...Read more

Not likely. . .: Diabetes is defined as at least 2 fasting sugars >125. Normal is less than 100. Pre-diabetes is somewhere in between. Eating right & exercising regularly are key to avoiding diabetes. If you're still worried, ask your family doctor to check your hemoglobin a1c which is a running 3 month average of your sugar control. ...Read more

At over which level in mmol for fasting glucose should diabetes meds b started if diet and lifestyle changes hav been made?

Depends: Diagnosis of diabetes is made if two fasting blood sugar values are higher than 7 mmol. However, it is some times prudent to start medication in a person with pre-diabets. It would require and individual evaluation, best done by your doctor. For information on pre-diabetes, you may consult this site.

If my fasting glucose is sometimes over 7.0mmol and most days over 6.0mmol. Does that mean I am developing diabetes? Hba1c is 27mmol/mol

Daibetic?: In general, the reference range (that found in healthy persons), of hba 1c is about 20–40 mmol/mol (4–5.9%). At 27 mmol/molm, yours is normal. Do not worry about variations in blood glucose levels, worry about the hba1c level. Reduce any risk factors you may have such as obesity, exercise more and you may not develop diabetes in the future. Good luck. ...Read more

I had fasting glucose meter readings of 100-112 mg/dl on 8 occasions and 1 ocassion of 127 mg/dl. Do I need to be put on oral meds for pre-diabetes?

Pre- diabetes: Looks that your concern about diabetes is not needed. That said, please check your blood sugar before breakfast on alternate days, and at bedtime on the other days.
If any of those bedtime glucose levels are above 150 you must see your doctor.
Hopefully that should not be an issue. ...Read more
