Fasting Blood Glucose Results
Glucose monitoring: The whole purpose of monitoring your blood sugar levels is to let the doctor know what they are running so that the doctor can adjust your medications. Having good blood sugar control is essential in preventing complications. If the doctor isn't getting those values then i would wonder why you're checking it also. Bring in the averages or ranges of blood sugars when you see your doc. ...Read more
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've had 20 hb1ac tests in the past 5 years. Results have never been > 6.0 (5.2 avg) yet my blood glucose never reads < 120 mg/dl even fasting.?
I have tested fasting blood sugar and result is 293 mg/dL
But i dont have any symtons for diabetes.
Please give suggestion to control my glucose.
See doc, change diet: Hopefully, the machine is wrong. But you need to not count on that and check with your doc and get evaluated. In the meantime, exercise and cut the sugar from your diet and if you need to lose some weight, get started on a healthy weight loss diet (count calories!).High protein diets are not good ones (more studies showing this all the time). ...Read more
I recently took an A1c test and blood glucose. The results from the A1c is 7% and fasting glucose 84. Would i be considered a diabetic?
Random blood sugar test result 375mg/dL repeat test done Fasting Plasma Glucose result 228mg/dL. Am I diabetic?
Yes!: You are def a diabetic. Get a glucose meter and check some fingersticks. Completely NL in the AM fasting is 70-100. 101-125 is borderline, >125 is diabetes. Go see a diabetes doc and get an A1C test. Normal is up to 5.7. Pre-diabetic is 5.7 - 6.4. Diabetes is >6.4.

Can I brush my teeth before a fasting blood test (glucose, lipids, etc.)? Does the toothpaste affect the results?
Is higher fasting blood glucose early in the morning normal? I've had scores a bit high early in the morning, 102-103. But later they're under 90.
What is the range of normal "fasting" whole blood glucose? May i also get your reference? Thanks!
74-106: That's "technicaliy" the "normal range", but only for blood drawn from a vein in the fasting state. After meal glucoses and hba1dc determination are also important if you're concerned re: diagnosis of diabetes. Don't be worried if your glucose is slightly lower than the above range. Be aware that what is considered "normal" changes from time to time and has been slowly lowering over years. ...Read more
