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 more

Could I be diabetic with a fasting glucose of 94?

Could I be diabetic with a fasting glucose of 94?

Unlikely: We don't typically follow 1 number to diagnose diabetes but a fasting sugar of 94 is normal and is not in the diabetes range. Fasting sugar > 126, random blood sugar > 200 (with symptoms like thirst, excess urine output, weight loss) or a test called hemoglobin A1c > 6.5% will give you the diagnosis of diabetes. An oral glucose tolerance test is another test you can do to diagnose diabetes. ...Read more

Does the length of fasting affect fasting glucose levels?

Does the length of fasting affect fasting glucose levels?

Fasting Glucose: There are variations based on length of fasting but basically the test is checking if you have normal regulation of your blood sugar - checks if it is too high while fasting (i.e. diabetes) or too low (i.e. hypoglycemia) or if it is within normal limits. Too short of a fasting time may reflect the food still being absorbed from the stomach/gut. If longer than recommended, not likely to matter. ...Read more
