Blood Sugar (Definition)

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

Recently blood glucose levels for non fasting males?

Recently blood glucose levels for non fasting males?

Normal fasting: 65-105 when drawn out of a vein while fasting. Various authorities have different "normal" levels. There are, however, no exact cut-offs, it's all a continuium. Finger sticks are not accurate enough for diagnosis. Two hour post meal should be less than 130-140, and any glucose >200 at any time suggests diabetes. An a1c >6% is also suggestive and needs further evaluation. See diabetes.Org for info. ...Read more

Fsh:7.3, lh:5.19, prolactin: 27.81ng/ml (4.79 - 23.3) , fasting glucose level :111.1 (prediabetic), fasting insulin:12.85 (2.6-24.9), do I have pcos?

Fsh:7.3, lh:5.19, prolactin: 27.81ng/ml (4.79 - 23.3) , fasting glucose level :111.1 (prediabetic), fasting insulin:12.85 (2.6-24.9), do I have pcos?

Possible PCOS: Pcos is characterized with symptoms of annovulation (irregular periods) and hyperandrogenism (biochemically or clinically, ie hirsutism). Patients can also have cysts on their ovaries, but is not needed for the diagnosis. Pcos is a diagnosis of exclusion so your dr. Should make sure there is not something else causing your symptoms. Including your elevated prolactin. ...Read more

Does this suggest diabetes? Glucose - 62, Glucose Fasting - 69, Insulin Fasting

Does this suggest diabetes? Glucose - 62, Glucose Fasting - 69, Insulin Fasting

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 more

Cause of elevations in proinsulin, c-peptides and proinsulin:c-peptide ratio, c reactive protein & ferritin. Normal A1c & glucose.  Previously overwei?

Can't answer: Nobody here can answer without your clinical history, though i wouldn't be surprised if you have hemochromatosis -- truth is, i hope you do, because it's the easiest of all the deadly diseases to manage. It's also worth remembering that serum ferritin is an acute phase reactant and likely to be high during some other illness. You're a person, not a set of labs. Insist on a full explanation. ...Read more

Male 34 no sex drive, struggling with erections, small testicles, Gynomastia from puberty, but testosterone levels are normal at 750 ng/dl ?

Male 34 no sex drive, struggling with erections, small testicles, Gynomastia from puberty, but testosterone levels are normal at 750 ng/dl ?

This is very serious: Testosterone levels are only one part of the picture. I suspect you have a prolactinoma in the pituitary gland, but other possibilities include a mutation affecting androgen receptors, XXY, hemochromatosis, and a few dozen others. I'm a lab specialist and the labs are the least reliable part of most workups. I hope you find the cause. Best wishes. ...Read more

Basal glucose =81 mg/dl but insuline =38 mU/ml (insuline/glucose > 0,3 ). Symptoms of ipoglycemia... How to exclude an insulinoma? Ultrasound?thanks!

Hypoglycemia: To diagnose insulinoma, you need to demonstrate inappropriately high insulin/C-peptide when your glucose is low. A glu of 81 is not low, it is normal. You have symptoms of hypo, but these symptoms are often from something else. Insulinoma is rare. Do not start getting CT/ultrasound etc until you establish the biochemical diagnosis first. An Endocrinologist can help you. ...Read more

Can creatinine levels be transiently high over baseline during hyperglycemia (sugar ~ 500)? Asking because creatinine values are normal when fasting

Can creatinine levels be transiently high over baseline during hyperglycemia (sugar ~ 500)?  Asking because creatinine values are normal when fasting

Yes: Depending on method for creatinine testing, presence of ketosis, that may accompany hyperglycemia, the result may be falsely elevated. Make sure to control your glucose and A1c. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

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. You most likely will be developing diabetes in near future. So watch !! ...Read more
