What's the importance of recording my fasting and postprandial blood glucose results?

What's the importance of recording my fasting and postprandial 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

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

31.9low glucose result in fasting blood test randomly done by Doctor. She wants to put me on med. right away&i don't like that! How can we find cause?

I agree with you: that, before your doctor puts you on "med right away", she needs to find out the cause. The first thing to consider is: is the test result accurate? If so, this is a dangerously low blood sugar and it should be followed up on without delay. Best wishes. Dr. Anne. ...Read more

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.

Only your doctor can give you the range that is right for you because there are many factors involved on our target selection. ...Read more
