Is A Fasting Glucose Level Of 63 Any Concern
The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. The body naturally tightly regulates blood glucose levels as a part of metabolic homeostasis. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and blood lipids (in the form of fats and oils) are primarily ...Read more
Liver glucose output: The liver manufactures glucose. Many things regulate it, but the reason most people have elevated fasting glucoses is because the liver may become resistant to insulin. Normal Insulin production/sensitivity helps to keep liver glucose output normal. When the liver becomes resistant to the effects of insulin, it will not be able to keep glucose production down to normal. This ?risk for diabetes. ...Read more

Hii my fasting glucose level is 122 while my hab1c is 5.5 %. Please advise if the numbers are good or bad.
High glucose: The hba1c of 5.5 is normal, but a fasting glucose of 122 is high (normal under 100). You should have it repeated to see if it was a lab error. If still high, it means you have impaired glucose tolerance, it would be helpful to monitor sugars at home, before and 2 hrs after meals. ...Read more
My fasting glucose ranges from 5.6 to6.9mmol.should I take measures to reduce this.is this level causing damage?
Proper diet,activity: The range of 5.6 to 6.9 mmol is equivalent to the range of 100.9 to 124.3 mg/dL. This would equate to a hemoglobin A1c range of 5.14 to 5.94. You have prediabetes if A1c is 5.7-6.4, and fasting blood glucose is 100-125. Diabetes for A1c 6.5 or above and FBG 126 or above. Practically speaking, diabetes complications are avoided if A1c remains below 7. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Fasting Glucose: There are variations based on length of fasting but basically the test is checking if you have normal regulation of your blood sugar - checks if it is too high while fasting (i.e. diabetes) or too low (i.e. hypoglycemia) or if it is within normal limits. Too short of a fasting time may reflect the food still being absorbed from the stomach/gut. If longer than recommended, not likely to matter. ...Read more
