Glucose Tolerance Glucose Fasting 2hr Glucose Post 75 Gm
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
When one takes a drug, such as heroin or alcohol, repeatedly, 'tolerance' develops because more of the drug is needed to give the same effect on the body/brain; e.g. Liver enzymes r stimulated to metabolize the drug faster and faster. There may be a strong genetic predisposition to addiction, some studies suggesting that 1 of 10 people will become dependent on alcohol or some ...Read more
Glucose fasting 80, 60min 168, 120min 119. Insulin fasting 5.25, 60min 42.36, 120min 34.47. HbA1c 5,2%. Impaired glucose tolerance/insulin resistance?
Hi Fasting Glucose?: Those who have high fasting blood sugars can still have normal 2-hour post-prandial sugar. Such patients are still able to effectively mount an Insulin response to a glycemic challenge. Insulin resistance in the liver causes impaired fasting glucose. Insulin should keep fasting blood sugar in check, but when liver is very resistant, the fasting Insulin levels aren't enough to keep sugar normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is prediabetes confirmed with a fasting glucose over 6.0 mmol or do you need a high 2 hour post meal number in addition to confirm?
Impaired fasting glu: A fasting glucose above 5.6 mmol (100mg/dl) is considered abnormal. A level above 7 (125 mg/dl) is consistent with diabetes. You do not need to have a high 2 hr pp number to have impaired glucose tolerance. A 2 hr pp above 11.1 mmol (200 mg/dl) is also consistent with diabetes. However, these should be confirmed by a lab test, not fingerstick reading. ...Read more
Fasting glucose is 110mg/dl. 40minutes after meal, glucose is 285mg/dl. 2hr after meal, glucose is 116mg/dl. I'm on no meds. Am i diabetic?
Predisbetic: We need to get a test called hba1c which ch can give us an idea about your sugar level for the last 3 monthsnorma is below 5.8 also we need 2 fasting glucose reading of >126 to diagnose diabetes i would still recomend exercise and diet to f keep sugar under control check with your pcp about theses tests. Thanks. ...Read more
Why is my fasting glucose always higher (90s) than my post-prandial glucose (70s)? I am not diabetic nor on and meds that affect blood sugar.
Don't worry: Your blood glucose results are in the normal range. To maintain good health, exercise about 30 minutes/day, 5 days/week, have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, legumes, lentils, beans, small amounts of lean meats, low fat milk products, limit saturated fats, no tobacco and no more than one alcoholic drink a day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My fasting glucose is consistently 100-115, and yet post prandial 1 hr is 160, 2 hr is 86. Last vap showed negative for metabolic syndrome. Is this a result of nighttime glycogen dump, and if so, why? And why the normal post prandial?
Pre-diabetes: People with pre-diabetes/early diabetes can produce higher level of Insulin to keep bs somewhat adequate, sometimes they overshoot and can cause subsequent low blood sugar after a meal, especially if it's a high carbohydrate meals. As of now, you have impaired fasting sugar which is a form of pre-diabetes. You might need a hba1c test (blood test) to see your overall level of glucose control. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Best to discuss with your primary doctor or see a general surgeon. ...Read more
Av Glucose 143 mg/dL: according to this research: http://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/26/3/881.short. or http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/427799. In human trials, an optimal HbA1c [for lowest rates of cardiovascular events (heart attacks, etc.) for middle age "normal/asymptomatic" people with zero history of health problems] within 5 years is 5.0%, corresponding to an average blood glucose of 100 mg/dL. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
