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
Needs confirmation: A single fasting blood sugar over 125 needs confirmatory tests to diagnose diabetes. this can be a second fasting blood sugar over 125, or a Hemoglobin A1c test over 6.5%. However any sugar over 300, or any sugar over 200 associated with vision change, excessive thirst or urination, or weight loss while eating more than usual is diagnostic for diabetes without a need for confirmatory testing. ...Read more

What to do if I had a fasting blood glucose test and have been told it was high, I now have to have a hba1c on tuesday?
HbA1c: This is a blood test that tells the doctor how well your blood sugar has been controlled over the last 3 months. If you had a high fasting sugar and your A1c is very high then you will know that you have diabetes and it is not well-controlled. If you have a low / normal A1c then you probably just starting to develop diabetes and can treat it with diet and exercise first. ...Read more

Why am I still losing weight? Stool test was normal no blood no parasite. Did a random glucose test it was normal? Is this cancer? Am I not eating enough? I have been eating healthy and exercising.
Abnormal OGTT: Prolonged fasts are often considered around 72 hours, but 8-12 hours is all that's required for an ogtt. The longer the fast, the higher the circulating levels of free fatty acids, which has a negative impact on glucose tolerance. 21 hours may not significantly alter the blood sugar results. If results are really abnormal, repeating the ogtt under proper fasting requirements may be necessary. ...Read more

Hi. Yes, at age 45 (your stated age) it is recommended you be tested for diabetes; sooner than 45 if you have risk factors. Type 2 diabetes can be present but go undiagnosed for years, during which time it is damaging various organ systems in the body. So, perhaps you should say you're not known to be diabetic! ;-)
Get tested...you'll either be relieved, or get going on managing it! Good luck! ...Read more

I received a blood glucose test about a month ago, and my number came up at 150. I went back today after a 12hr fast, and was 108. Am I pre-diabetic?
Maybe (not). . .: Pre-diabetes is a great term but definitions are rather loose. If checking glucose, best to draw blood after fasting all night long. Normal result should be less than 100. Impaired fasting glucose is 100-125. Diabetes is higher. Or check A1c which gives info re average sugar over past 3 months. Normal is less than 5.7. 5.7-64 is pre-diabetes or at elevated risk. Higher is consistent w/diabetes. ...Read more
If my glucose test shows my blood sugar is normal but insulin blood test shows I'm insulin resistant, should I ask for a second opinion?
Depends: If you did the one-hour test, it means you need to do the definitive 3 hour test. If it was one elevation on the 3 hour test, then you are not a gestational diabetic (unless your one was a really elevated fasting glucose). It is a good idea to watch your diet and carbs if you had one elevation tho. ...Read more
THere are none: There are no low glucose levels with pregnancy gtt, only good normal levels.

I tested my 3 yr old child 1 hr after eating, with a home blood glucose test and it was 168. Is that ok?
Reason for Testing?: There are lots of variables to take into consideration including the meter accuracy and if hands were completely dry after cleaning. Laffy taffy on the patient's hands was the reason a small boy was brought into the office for a blood sugar of 327 mg/dl. Cleaned hands and he was 87. Best to also wait 2 hr after food before test. If you're concerned enough to test, please see your child's doctor. ...Read more
