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

My father is diabatic patient now he has HCV positive, in his reports sgot 196, sgpt 307 and glucose random 275. Kindaly tell me is this recoverable?

Yes: However, Dad has a lot of work to do with his physician. Hep C is now curable if the weird politics and econimics makes it possible. Diabetes is manageable if the patient is willing to work hard. It would be fantastic if you took up a family fitness program and helped Dad get back into great shape. Best wishes. ...Read more

Doctor requested a blood test what do these mean. Fbc, lft, rpg glucose (random), tfgps (bm==), ue thyroid (not on T4 urea/electrolites. Help.

Puzzle: Fbc = full blood count (checks for anemia, infection, leukemia etc)
lft = liver function test (for liver damage/hepatitis)
rpg = random plasma glucose (diabetes)
tfgps (bm==) = no idea - are you sure you got this right?
Ue thyroid = urea/electrolytes/thyroid (checks for kidney/thyroid disease/low potassium)

remember that mds may order tests often just to be double sure there is no disease. ...Read more

Took plan b on Thurs. And I have blood test on Mon. For glucose random, vitamin d, 25-hydroxy, hemoglobin, insulin and c-peptide will plan b show up?

Took plan b on Thurs. And I have blood test on Mon. For glucose random, vitamin d, 25-hydroxy, hemoglobin, insulin and c-peptide will plan b show up?

No: There isn't any reason for anyone to do a lab test looking for Plan B in a patient. If it's important, the patient can just tell the doctor she took Plan B. On a side note, if a patient is checking her glucose, she can go first thing in the morning (after fasting overnight (water is ok to drink)), and get a Fasting Blood Glucose result that is more helpful in assessing her blood sugar status. ...Read more

Blood test came back out of range-Glucose Random 4.4 Creatinine 56 Estimated GFR 103 Gamma GT <10 ALT 18 AST 15 I am 42 smoker dizzy tired what's wrong?

Fatigue/dizzy: The numbers above appear normal, you cite the creatinine as 56 or is that 0.56 because the estimated GFR is ok.

Causes for fatigue/dizziness: smoking, diet, perimenopause, no exercise, thyroid, anemia, low B12, B6, low magnesium. For dizziness also consider sinusitis, allergies, otitis, low blood pressure when initially standing up, vertigo, less likely carotids, vascular, tumors, autoimmune ...Read more

My Glucose - Serum/Plasma (Random/Casual) is 128. Sample given after 3.5 hours of eating. Do I have diabetes?

Maybe: It would certainly help to see your height and weight and thus BMI here, definitely input that for a Prime Consult on Healthtap. In the US our professional guidelines hold that a blood sugar between 100 and 140 is in the range of "prediabetes". There is a continuum from normal 2 Prediabetes 2 diabetes.

If you don't need diabetes medication you are doing just fine! ...Read more
