What food should I start feeding my 6 monthes baby girl?? Can I add for her food some salt and sugar?

What food should I start feeding my 6 monthes baby girl?? Can I add for her food some salt and sugar?

Solid food: You can start cereal, first. Rice, oat or barley. After this, fruits and vegetables. Some say veg before fruit, but it really doesn't matter. One new food every 3-5 days, to make sure baby doesn't have any reactions. Baby needs to be able to hold head up, and open her mouth when food is offered. No added sugar or salt, please. She will get it soon enough, without adding to food, now. ...Read more

Why is my 9-year-old girl's blood sugar so high?

Most 9 year old kids with high blood sugar have type 1 diabetes. Delaying such a diagnosis could result in diabetic ketoacidosis, a medical emergency due to metabolic decompensation. This could happen quickly so please take her to her doctor asap. ...Read more

Is 124.2 mg/dl a normal blood sugar level for a 17 years old girl?

Depends: Hi. There are different normal ranges for glucose for fasting and for post-challenge (similar to after a meal, but the "challenge" glucose is 75 grams liquid glucose). 124 mg/dl is not normal for fasting, but would be normal after a meal (or 75 gram glucose challenge). Eat healthy and exercise regularly for life! ...Read more

No: A value of 95 is within normal. A blood sugar less than 60 would be concerning.

Is 124.2 mg/dl a normal blood sugar level for a 17 years old girl after a meal for after 3 hours ?

Is 124.2 mg/dl a normal blood sugar level for a 17 years old girl after a meal for after 3 hours ?

Probably normal: Hi. There aren't diagnostic criteria for normal sugar 3 hours after a mixed meal that I'm aware of, but I'd say that seems pretty much normal. Variables would be how much carb and fat were in the mixed meal; they influence how much and how quickly sugar will appear in the blood. If you're worried, talk with your doc about doing a 75-gram oral glucose tolerance test. Good luck! ...Read more
