When one has glucose level of 200 should that person diabetic? Should that person be on metaphormin for ever? Or with excercise, good diete and weight

Diabetes: Glucose of 200 and fasting glucose above 126 is diabetes. You need to have your hemoglobin A1c checked; if above 6.5 you are a diabetic. If treated with lifestyle early on, it is possible you can change your hemoglobin A1c to a non diabetic range and prevent all the horrible complications of diabetes. Eat low glycemic diet, exercise, lose weight, and drink alot of water. ...Read more

Hii my fasting glucose level is 122 while my hab1c is 5.5 %. Please advise if the numbers are good or bad.

High glucose: The hba1c of 5.5 is normal, but a fasting glucose of 122 is high (normal under 100). You should have it repeated to see if it was a lab error. If still high, it means you have impaired glucose tolerance, it would be helpful to monitor sugars at home, before and 2 hrs after meals. ...Read more

Suffering from diabiaties type 2 fasting glucose level 115 mg/dl after food 128mg/dl but still i lose my weight and last 1 month i no using my tablet?

Suffering from diabiaties type 2 fasting glucose level 115 mg/dl  after food 128mg/dl but still i lose my weight and last 1 month i no using my tablet?

Type 2 diabetes: Your fasting and post meal glu values are rather good. It appears you have discovered that weight loss and diet (and exercise?) is more powerful than medications for blood sugar control. It would be nice if you can get your fasting glu below 100. But you should still be talking to your doctor. There is more to diabetes than blood sugar. Blood pressure? cholesterol? Eyes? Feet? Kidneys? ...Read more

I'm constantly having to check my glucose for hypoglycemia. I have to intake sugar to bring it up. How can I sustain my levels? My weight is too high!

Hypoglycemia: You are a sugar addict. Your brain wants you to believe you need more sugar. The simple and right answer is to stop using sugar anywhere in your diet. The next step is to get to some fellowship program with other sugar addicts to prevent your hypoglycemia from becoming diabetes. Stop the sugar! in the meantime switch to eating protein when you feel your sugars are low! ...Read more

I am looking to watch my glucose levels to loose weight & tweak diet. Is there a way to obtain cgm devices through prescription? I am not diabetic.

Watch Calories: Your main focus here in terms of weight loss should be calorie intake and/or burn. It's a simple equation for most of us.....You eat more calories than you burn.....You're going to gain. Start with a daily calorie log and see what your intake is like. Much more fruitful than tracking blood sugars. ...Read more
