Blood Sugar (Definition)

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

They say albumin is indicative of diabetes, but my glucose level is fine. So what does the high albumin mean?

They say albumin is indicative of diabetes, but my glucose level is fine. So what does the high albumin mean?

Albuminuria: Albumin is a very abundant blood protein that we all have. One of the complications of diabetes is kidney disease, and an early sign of diabetic kidney disease is spilling albumin into the urine (normally there is very little albumin in the urine). The blood albumin level is not affected by diabetes unless there is severe kidney disease with a lot of albumin spillage. ...Read more

What could cause high glucose levels in urine other than diabetes?

What could cause high glucose levels in urine other than diabetes?

Glucosuria: Glucosuria - glucose in the urine. If blood glucose is normal & kidneys are functioning appropriately the urine usually contains no glucose. An uncommon and unconcerning inherited condition called renal glucosuria spills glucose into urinr. A new group of medications mimics this inherited condition. Fanconi's syndrome also has glucosuria, many different things can cause this syndrome. See a doctor. ...Read more

My glucose level was 6.4 before meal in the morning. Is it high? Do I have diabetes?

Get formal testing: One test value is non-diagnostic, and also please confirm the units of measurement. However, in general:

Above 5.5 mmol/L is considered mildly high and you should get formal testing done.

If the measurement is in mg/dL, over 110 mg/dL is considered high enough to get additional testing done.

A side note - this is a fasting glucose, which we interpret differently than after meal glucose. ...Read more

Kidney fct: Get a urinalysis, serum creatinine, bun, potassium, and renal artery duplex exam. If they are all normal, you most likely have essential htn. Start with a diuretic, add an ace or arb, then a calcium blocker in stepwise fashion, if still uncontrolled, add a beta blocker and an Alpha blocker (labetolol blocks both). Everyone's BP can be controlled. Address your elevated sugar. ...Read more

Blood work & urine test normal except Glucose 158, A1c 7.4. Heard nothing from my Dr. Who is a Nephologist, specials are high B/P & Diabetes. Scared?

Diabetes: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, a Hb A1c level of 7.4 is diabetes, unless proven otherwise. You should contact your doctor to ensure proper treatment.

My father's age is 73. Suffering from diabetes 20 years. His blood glucose level fluctuating from low to high in a single day. What is the remedy?

My father's age is 73. Suffering from diabetes 20 years. His blood glucose level fluctuating from low to high in a single day. What is the remedy?

No cure: It is Dad's responsibility to manage his diabetes as long as he is in charge of his health. The only thing you can really do in this situation is to offer to exercise as a family. Inform yourself about his diabetes and what he should be doing, and perhaps get guidance from his physician, but ultimately compliance and good control rests with Dad. I am glad you care for him and wish you the best. ...Read more

Ogtt's curve is "flat".Glycemia doesn't increase after 75gr of glucose. Basal Insulin is high. Should it be early diabetes? Insulinoma? Wrong diet? Thanks

Ogtt's curve is "flat".Glycemia doesn't increase after 75gr of glucose. Basal Insulin is high. Should it be early diabetes? Insulinoma? Wrong diet? Thanks

Prediabetes: High levels of insulin are usually an indication of insulin resistance which is a key factor in the development of type 2 diabetes. You should have a HgbA1c drawn and see if you are prediabetic. If you are, weight loss and medications such as metformin can help to prevent the development of diabetes. ...Read more

My mean plasma glucose is 111; hba1c is 5.3. My doctor said I don't have diabetes, but isn't my glucose high?

My mean plasma glucose is 111; hba1c is 5.3. My doctor said I don't have diabetes, but isn't my glucose high?

No: A1c between5.7 to 6.5 indicated pre diabetes.
> 6.5 indicates diabetes. Having said that diabetes is more like a gradient disease- by that what I mean is with an a1c of 5.3 your risk of diabetes is slightly higher than a person with a1c of 4.8.
Life style modifications with diet and exercise will decrease this risk. ...Read more

I am hearing that a healthy normal range of blood glucose in a healthy adult can be 70--120. Some MD's think 120 means high diabetes and insulin (?).

Yes: Early Type 2 Diabetes or "Pre-Diabetes" is now a TREATABLE disorder and it is thought that EARLY treatment is beneficial but NOT INSULIN. An oral hypoglycemic (such as METFORMIN) is usually chosen!
(along with dietary changes and weight loss if obese)
Hope this helps!

Have graves disease and my glucose level is a bit elevated. Does it mean that I have diabetes?

Have graves disease and my glucose level is a bit elevated. Does it mean that I have diabetes?

Depends: Was your glucose fasting or random and how elevated? Was it repeated? Was a hga1c done to check your 3 month average blood sugar? You may be normal, pre diabetic or diabetic. It's hard to tell from the information given. Having graves does not necessarily predispose to diabetes but those with diabetes frequently get thyroid disease. ...Read more
