Can a donut with 380 cals., 21g fat, 15mg cholesterol, 460mg sodium, 46g carbohydrates, 25g sugar raise your blood sugar, cholesterol &blood pressure?

Can a donut with 380 cals., 21g fat, 15mg cholesterol, 460mg sodium, 46g carbohydrates, 25g sugar raise your blood sugar, cholesterol &blood pressure?

Poor diet: I am a bit surprised. You do not need a physician to tell you that eating a high sugar food would raise your blood sugar. Testing for cholesterol in a non-fasting state makes the test completely invalid. One donut would not cause the disease of hypertension. ...Read more

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

Type 2 diabetic, no meds, sugars controlled by low-carb diet. 1 hr postprandial blood sugar 6.5, then at 2 hr mark DOWN to 3.5-4. WHY THE LOW DROP?

Diabetic: You are not diabetic, you have diabetes and should work to get rid of diabetes. With appropriate food intake and exercise you should gradually lower your blood sugar level to a point where your diabetes is no more. There are many easy to read articles focussing on blood sugar information. Let me know if you are not working towards no longer having diabetes. ...Read more

Does your body process different sugars differently (eg. Glucose, fructose, sucrose, lactose, etc.)?

Does your body process different sugars differently (eg. Glucose, fructose, sucrose, lactose, etc.)?

With minor: Differences, your body can easily metabolize any sugar. Glucose, fructose and galactose are all simple sugars or monosaccharides. Sucrose, maltose and lactose are all compound sugars or disaccharides. Sucrose is formed as a combination of a molecule of glucose and one of fructose, and they are broken apart by enzymes. All are equal to 4 calories / gram. ...Read more

Baseline & fasting blood sugar is always normal. Blood sugar drops to 45/55 about an hour After eating a sugary meal. Is this dangerous?

Reactive hypoglycemi: This sounds like reactive hypoglycemia, essentially an overreaction of the pancreas to a large load of ingested sugar. This can usually be controlled by eating smaller meals more frequently and by limiting simple sugars, replacing them with complex carbohydrates and fiber. If symptoms persist despite this management, see doctor for blood testing for insulin levels and such. ...Read more

Normal glucose test. Can eating lots of sugar (cookies) and carbs in 3 days reverse normalcy and cause gestational diabetes? 108 glucose 19.6 BMI 25w

Normal glucose test. Can eating lots of sugar (cookies) and carbs in 3 days reverse normalcy and cause gestational diabetes? 108 glucose 19.6 BMI 25w

Short-term sugar OK: Secondary forms of diabetes (not the autoimmune insulin-requiring types), including the gestational type, are caused by cells become desensitized to insulin. This happens when Insulin levels are always high due to high sugar intake. It takes time; pregnancy just adds to the process. Three days of cake or girl scout cookies won't do anything if you weren't already heading that way. ...Read more

I'm 40 yr male. I got checked blood sugar & it is as follows: fasting bs 6.5 mmol/l, cholestrol 4.80mmol/l & HDL 0.70mmol/l. Is it ok?

I'm 40 yr male. I got checked  blood sugar & it is as follows: fasting bs 6.5 mmol/l, cholestrol 4.80mmol/l & HDL 0.70mmol/l. Is it ok?

See below: A fasting glucose of 6.5 mmol/l (117 gm/dl) is in the pre-diabetic range. Cholesterol of 4.8 mmol/l (185 mg/dl) is not bad but HDL of 0.7 mmol/l(@7.3 mg/dl) is low, i.e., not favorable. It would be prudent to see your doctor to address these issues for preventing diabetes and heart disease. ...Read more

Insulin levels: Measurement of Insulin is not a very accurate assay if Insulin resistsance was correctly diagnosed before starting metformin then it will cause high Insulin levels usually despite the medicine to rule out Insulin ins you need high Insulin and a low blood sugar without the metformin on board and usually in a fasting state your results are not uncommon in the case you have. ...Read more

Studies say artificial sweetener cause people to crave more sweet & food carbs & result in wgt gain,higher sugar.True 4 natural sweetener stevia also?

Not so with Stevia: No. A study I found (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195666310000826) showed that with Stevia, there was no craving. Also, there was no increase in insulin levels, unlike with aspartame, which is important regarding the issue of insulin resistance. Hope that helps. ...Read more
