Can you tell me is 138 sugar level good or bad?

Can you tell me is 138 sugar level good or bad?

Depends on timing: A normal fasting (fasting = no calories for at least 8 hours) blood sugar level is under 100. A diabetic level is 126 or more. In between is borderline range. If not fasting, blood sugar can be substantially higher; 2 hours after a 75g glucose load, normal is considered to be under 140, and diabetic above 199. Results must be repeated, and not on a home meter (which are not accurate enough). ...Read more

My blood sugar level was 148 this morning. Is that bad?

Perspective: If you don't have a diagnosis of diabetes, it is time to see your doctor right away. If you have it, a fasting sugar like this is considered high. Your diabetes doctor can work with you to bring the blood sugars down if they tend to be this elevated when fasting. ...Read more

I'm 17. How bad on a scale of 1-10 is a blood sugar level of 315?

I'm 17. How bad on a scale of 1-10 is a blood sugar level of 315?

Forgive my frankness: Forget the "scale of 1 to 10". I am going to assume that that this is not a lab error, something drawn while you were gravely sick, or drawn from below an IV infusing glucose. If I'm right, and it's mg/dL, then you have diabetes and you are very seriously sick. If you value your health (brain, feet, not being in serious pain) in fifteen years, manage your disease like an adult. ...Read more

Can you guys tell me how bad will it change my blood sugar level if I was 2 hours longer in the fasting procedure?

Can you guys tell me how bad will it change my blood sugar level if I was 2 hours longer in the fasting procedure?

Since I don't: Understand your question it's hard to answer. If you were fasting and had fasted two hours longer, it probably wouldn't have made a significant difference in your blood sugar -- provided you're talking about a fast of over 6 or more hours. Your body has mechanisms to keep your sugar normal unless you have diabetes or other significant problem. ...Read more

Hi I want to know if the sugars and carbs found in fruits are bad for people who have diabetes. All fruits have sugar and will it increase sugar level?

Diabetes: I strongly recommend that you see a dietitian to help you control your blood sugar.
I assume that your diabetes at age 43 is type 2 diabetes. In that case you should work with the dietitian to rid yourself of diabetes. YES, THAT SHOULD HAPPEN IF YOU TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOURSELF!
Once you rid yourself of diabetes you will start telling all your friends with type two diabetes!! ...Read more

Trying to give up soda Switched to sparkling water that has no calories but has sucralose. Is that as bad as sugar? Trying to keep glucose levels low

As bad a sugar?: Sucralose is an artificial sweetener and in today's world, every artificial food additive will have people on the internet telling you that it's a terrible poison and the cause of most ill-health. I'd urge you to enjoy your soda and be glad that you're not getting a lot of calories to make you fat. How about instead getting a bottle of water and going for a good run? ...Read more

Please can you tell me why I have a healthy diet, no family history of high blood sugar levels, have been told I could turn diabetic? Is it bad luck?

Please can you tell me why I have a healthy diet, no family history of high blood sugar levels, have been told I could turn diabetic? Is it bad luck?

You could say so: Hi. Just to give the opposite point of view, I went thru college, MD/PhD, residency, fellowship, and faculty with type 1 diabetes, and I wouldn't trade my life with a nondiabetic. You could easily have later onset type 1 diabetes. You could check type 1 autoantibodies (4 main ones). If they're positive, you've got your diagnosis. Type 1 comes on more gradually in older age than in kids. Good luck! ...Read more
