Glucose Tolerance Glucose Fasting 2hr Glucose Post 75 Gm
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

Fasting glucose 85. then GTT hour 1glucose 84, hour 2 glucose 94. what would cause this odd response?
Normal variability: So for that test, you basically get a dose of glucose to see if your blood sugar remains elevated. Our bodies respond very quickly to glucose, meaning that it gets taken up by our muscles and liver almost immediately after it enters the blood stream. Our body's "thermostat" is set to keep the blood sugar level between 70-99. Over 100 indicates a problem with glucose metabolism. Yours is normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

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

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 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

Diet/exercise: It's not normal to have a high fasting blood sugar. By definition, it means you have pre-diabetes. This is an important time to look at your lifestyle choices because you can bring it back to normal with the right diet/exercise routine. If you are overweight, work on losing some weight. Watch portion size and try at least 30 min of moderate exercise 5 days/week. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My fasting glucose ranges from 5.6 to6.9mmol.should I take measures to reduce this.is this level causing damage?
Proper diet,activity: The range of 5.6 to 6.9 mmol is equivalent to the range of 100.9 to 124.3 mg/dL. This would equate to a hemoglobin A1c range of 5.14 to 5.94. You have prediabetes if A1c is 5.7-6.4, and fasting blood glucose is 100-125. Diabetes for A1c 6.5 or above and FBG 126 or above. Practically speaking, diabetes complications are avoided if A1c remains below 7. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am 34y. My fasting glucose was 116 5years ago but now 166 mg/dl. Shall I take medicine? What excercise is good?
Get seen: If this is home-testing, it's not accurate enough to diagnose diabetes. If this is from your physician's office, you need a workup -- you probably have diabetes, and a search for a possible underlying cause should be undertaken before treatment is begun. The situation is very serious ...Read more
Usually, is the prognosis for impaired fasting glucose better/more reversible at early stages than late stages, like with many other problems?
You are correct: But let's put this in simple and true terms. The mainstay of staving off type II diabetes, given that the person has the genetic tendency, is physical exercise and to a lesser extent healthy eating / staying trim. The sooner a person goes about making this central to their life, the better. ...Read more
Ha1c = 5.8, but fasting glucose was 113. Which is more significant and am I in serious danger of becoming type 2? I exercise lots, and am fit.
Both are significant: These are equally indicative of borderline diabetes. However, this is usually reversible with diet and supplements. It is wise to do this now,before it progresses.See https://draxe.com/how-to-reverse-diabetes-naturally-in-30-days-or-less/ for an excellent overview of diet and supplements.

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
