Getting low: While it can vary from person to person, blood sugar readings under 60 may be hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). People can become symptomatic with shakiness, feelings of extreme hunger, weakness, and lightheadedness. This is probably not related to diabetes or no diabetes. Some medications can mask symptoms of low blood sugar, namely beta blockers (which can be used for situational anxiety). ...Read more
Blood sugar of 88 in a non diabetic two hours after breakfast, is this low? Indicative of anything bad?
No it's likely fine: Your WBC (white blood count) varies from day to day and can go up and down for a variety of reasons. In pregnancy for example, women will often times have a WBC in the range of 15. Also, 12.7 actually is 12, 700. However, alot of it depends on what your current health condition is and in general a 12.7 by itself is likely ok. ...Read more
Maybe both: Aside from diabetes, there are other less common reasons to spill glucose in the urine.

Therefore, even if a blood sugar is normal at one point in time, urine represents hours of time. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No it's fine.: There is a lot of variability in ranges from lab to lab and blood draw to blood draw. I would call that normal. If we drew your blood again, chances are it would be in the range. Nothing to worry about. You see bumps in eos (short for eosinophils) in allergies, eczema and if you are certain medications. All good. ...Read more

High sugars=diabetes: I hear you when you ask "do i really have diabetes?" but the definition of diabetes is elevated blood sugars.

The elevated sugars can do damage so just use it as a life challenge. ...Read more
70-99mg/dl fasting: Normal blood sugars are between 70-100mg/dl when you are in a fasting state (at least 8hrs). Diabetes is present when the number hits 126mg/dl in the fasting state. When the sugars fall in between these ranges (100-125), this would be considered impaired fasting glucose or pre-diabetes (borderline diabetes). ...Read more

Any truth to the claim that consuming more fat, include trans fat, and little/no sugar will bring blood glucose level to normal range? Exercise too.
Don't get your life: With diabetes, you need to be monitored closely as you experiment. Don't expect miraculous results from swapping calories from one group to another. It's much more to your credit that you're exercising, and this will be a huge help to you -- as will simply being pro-active about your health. Best wishes. ...Read more

NO: Normal 65-105 when drawn out of a vein while fasting. Various authorities have different "normal" levels. There are, however, no exact cut-offs, it's all a continuium. Finger sticks are not accurate enough for diagnosis. Two hour post meal should be less than 130-140, and any glucose >200 at any time suggests diabetes. An a1c >6% is also suggestive and needs further evaluation. See diabetes.Org fo. ...Read more
