Fasting Glucose Test Use Of Antacids
Fasting glucose116. Other CMP results normal. Urine shows 1+ on glucose. Any of her meds cause urine glucose? Aciphex, (rabeprazole) valium, warfarin, amoxicillian
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
Different tests: Insulin & glucose are 2 different ways to measure diabetes. Insulin is produced by pancreas to keep sugars under control. We measure glucose to see how well sugars are controlled. We can measure Insulin to determine how much effort pancreas is making to control sugars. Think of glucose as speedometer & Insulin as tachometer (hgba1c is avg trip speed - ask a car nut if this doesn't make sense). ...Read more
Yes: You should not eat for 12 hours before a fasting test is done. You can have some water if thirsty. ...Read more
Bllod sugar: Glucose appears in urine only when blood sugar is greater than (debate) 180-220. Would like to aim for sugars 80-150 for good control. So can still be in 150-180 range, chronically, and still be in less than ideal control without any sugar appearing in urine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Took two, 3 hour glucose tolerance /insulin tests, one test had low blood sugar AND second test had high insulin both in the 3rd hour. How to treat?
I am prediabetic with higher blood sugar and insulin levels. L just had a 3 hour glucose tolerance test. Fasting sugar is 63, insulin is 2. Meaning?
Doesn't matter: The numbers aren't really important or valuable. If you're overweight and have high glucose (particularly with a positive family history) you need education, diet, exercise, weight reductio and maybe medication -- not just a diagnosis. The diagnosis doesn't help you get healthier. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Recently bloodwork for fasting insulin. How is this different that a glucose tolerance test or a fasting glucose test?
Different tests: Insulin & glucose are 2 different ways to measure diabetes. Insulin is produced by pancreas to keep sugars under control. We measure glucose to see how well sugars are controlled. Think of glucose as speedometer & Insulin as tachometer (hgba1c is avg trip speed - ask a car nut if this doesn't make sense). Glucose tolerance test requires drinking sugar whereas other 2 tests don't. ...Read more
Normal glucose test. Can eating lots of sugar (cookies) and carbs in 3 days reverse normalcy and cause gestational diabetes? 108 glucose 19.6 BMI 25w
Short-term sugar OK: Secondary forms of diabetes (not the autoimmune insulin-requiring types), including the gestational type, are caused by cells become desensitized to insulin. This happens when Insulin levels are always high due to high sugar intake. It takes time; pregnancy just adds to the process. Three days of cake or girl scout cookies won't do anything if you weren't already heading that way. ...Read more
Recent blood test showed fasting glucose reading of 102 mg/dl. I'm not overweight and exercise regularly.?
Ideal: Ideal is 100 or less. A more adequate test is the hemoglobin a1 c test; it represents your average blood sugar over the past 2-3 months. An ideal a1c is 5.5 or lower. Above 6.0, one should consider a diabetic medication if diet is not helping to lower the blood sugar. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Glucose & lipid panel for blood test has different fasting hours. It is possible for single of withdrawing blood ?
Yes: Most labs require 10-12 hour fasting which is long enough for both. ...Read more
What are the normal values for serum insulin in glucose tolerance test (75g) after 60 and 120 minutes?
Serum insulin: levels are very unreliable and of almost no use in a GTT. The labs don't measure them accurately either. Insulin is supposed to increase during a GTT and will go up more if you are overweight and insulin resistant. There are so-called "normals" but they are inaccurate and worthless. ...Read more
I'm 33, in my 20 weeks of 2nd pregnancy and non diabetic. My sugar levels are fasting 68 ppbs 88 as per blood sugar test. Any risk ? Pls advice
8 hours is typical: Some doctors recommend nothing but water for 12 hours, and suggest that you should avoid fatty meals for 24-48 hours prior. Some doctors no longer require fasting at all. It could be argued that fasting doesn't represent the amount of lipid that is typically present in the blood, so it is less useful to look at fasting measures. Others think the post meal measurements are misleading. 8 hrs is fine ...Read more
