Gestational Diabetes Glucose Challenge Test Shows Diabetes
A Drink/Bloodwork: Some obs do this at their office, or you go to a lab. The test is done first thing in the morning after you have not eaten overnight. They draw your blood to check the "fasting" (pre-breakfast) blood sugar, then you drink a bottle of liquid with 75 grams of sugar. Blood is drawn at 1, 2, and 3 hours after the drink. If 2 of 4 levels are elevated then you'll be diagnosed with gestational diabetes. ...Read more
Gestation diabetes is diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. This develops when pregnancy hormones change a patient's metabolism so that they can not regulate their blood sugar. A patient with GDM will have to go on a low sugar and low carb diet and monitor blood sugars very carefully. Sometimes they will require medications. There is a 30% chance ...Read more
Debatable!: 2-hour 75-gm load! international association of diabetes/pregnancy study groups (iadpsg) and american diabetes association: fasting <93 mg/dl, and 1-hour <180 mg/dl, and 2-hour <153 mg/dl. These represent the average glucose values at which infant birth weight, cord c-peptide, and percent body fat >90 percentile reached 1.75 times the odds of these outcomes at mean glucose values from hapo trial. ...Read more

Not ideal: There are multiple tests for diabetes but preferred are fasting glucose and hemoglobin A1c levels. Generally, these are tested on two separate occasions to confirm the diagnosis unless the numbers are way out of range. Non-fasting glucose with symptoms suggestive of diabetes can be reliable. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nope: Those are excellent numbers, even going to a little low. Diabetes is not a concern until your fasting glucose starts going over 100, and it isn't called diabetes until higher than that. A1c would also be much higher (6.5% or above is diabetes, 5.7-6.4% is increased risk, 4-5.6% is normal). Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am pcos pregnant woman did gestational diabetes test (glucose after 1 hr) & fasting glucose test after fasting for 13 hrs,will this affect result?
IGT and GDM: Hi. Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and gestational diabetes (GDM) both increase the risk of subsequent development of type 2 diabetes to pretty similar degrees. Both are indications for regular monitoring for the subsequent development of diabetes. Both are strong indications to adopt a healthy lifestyle (eat healthily and exercise regularly for life). ...Read more

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
My bl sugar level drops to 50 3 h after eating,normal insulin, c-peptide, liver enzymes' levels,family history of diabetes,is it reactive hypoglycemia?
Reactive hypoglycemi: yes. It is. Whenever you eat ready sugars or simple sugars( made with table sugar, juices) your body releases lots of insulin . Your sugars get absorbed mostly from stmach and there is still insulin in the blood that continue to lower your sugar.you should avoid ready sugars and take more complex carbs. Along with proteins.

Newer recommendation: Is that non-diabetic pregnant women undergo a 2-hour 75-gram oral glucose tolerance test at 24-28 weeks of gestation. Women should be fasting for this test, and a fasting glucose level should be included. If any one of the following values are abnormal, you have gestational diabetes: fasting at 92 or above (mg/dl), one-hour at 180 or above, two-hour at 153 or above. ...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
