What should my blood glucose/ blood sugar be at?

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

Need help. Is 103 a bad number for blood sugar?

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

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.

I am a type 1 diabetic. I exercise at least 5 nights a week and I wake up with bad blood sugars.?

I am a type 1 diabetic. I exercise at least 5 nights a week and I wake up with bad blood sugars.?

Pathophysiology: While exercise is helpful in everyone, it's not the main treatment for you. You are a type 1 diabetic, so you have diabetes because your body is not making enough insulin. The main treatment is to find the right Insulin regimen for you. If you wake up with bad sugars, it might be because your basal rate is too low, not because you are not exericising enough or eat the right food. ...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?

Your body has mechanisms to keep your sugar normal unless you have diabetes or other significant problem. ...Read more
