Intermittent Fasting Hypoglycemia
Hypoglycemia documented with glucose meter and ogtt, gained 10kg in 1 year, no diabetes, hunger, dizziness, exercise intolerance, glycogen issues.
Blood sugar drops below 2.9 mmol/l after eating healthy meals. Hypoglycemic attacks during sleep. Dialy basis. 27, male, 8-10% bodyfat. Non-diabetic. ?
High normal fasting gluc and HgA1c. Normal 2 hour post prandial readings. Can fatty liver be causing my "pre-diabetic" state?
Pre-diabetic?: Your lab values does not suggest pre-diabetes but pre-diabetic state can cause fatty liver not the other way around. Decrease your carbohydrate intake and eat low fat diet to decrease the risk starting today. It also will help you to decrease the risk of arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Contact me if you have further questions. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Yes: Yes, a rise in adrenaline associated with anxiety will cause your blood glucose to rise. In a diabetic, adrenaline can cause a sharp rise, like 100 or so points or more, but in a non-diabetic 10 or 15 points is possible. Be mindful that uncontrolled glucose levels may also lead indirectly to rise in anxiety sensations as well, see your doctor, to assure adequate control. ...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
No diabetes, normal fasting insulin levels, gaining weight fast, no thyroid issues, but low fasting glucagon levels (25pg/ml), no energy, healthy diet?
Glucose fasting 80, 60min 168, 120min 119. Insulin fasting 5.25, 60min 42.36, 120min 34.47. HbA1c 5,2%. Impaired glucose tolerance/insulin resistance?
Fasting glucose 5.0, then smoothy bananas+oats+dates, 1hour after 9.5, 2hours 6.3, 3hours 4.2. Prediabetes? Fasting and random tests are always normal
fasting insulin 76pmol/l
after 75gOral glucose-
1hr-insulin-849pmol/l . 2 hr-864pmol/l
glucose fast 5.4mmol/l
Time to get serious: You have normal glucose tolerance. Your fasting and 2 hr glu is not quite at the level of "impaired". Your insulin levels are on the high side, suggesting insulin resistance. Now is the time to start getting your weight under control, proper diet, and physical activity. Talk to your doctor about your particular situation. ...Read more
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
Hypoglycemia. 5 hour fasting glucose test caused episode, low blood sugar and insulin at time of episode. Insulinoma ruled out. What else could it be?
No: In my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to your glucose level returning to normal. A glucose tolerance test (if you've had one) is not and never will be a valid diagnostic test for hypoglycemia. Don't waste your money o GTT or any fad diets of treatments. Lose wt if heavy. ...Read more
