I recently took an A1c test and blood glucose. The results from the A1c is 7% and fasting glucose 84. Would I be considered a diabetic?
While fasting for fasting glucose test can I eat foods with a zero glycemic index (eggs, steak with no sauce, etc)? I don't see why not.
Had blood tests done, fasting glucose showed 90 and last month it was only 79. I'm sick worried. Is fasting glucose 90 worrisome? Is it pre diabetes?
Had blood tests done, fasting glucose showed 90 and last month it was only 79.I started taking l-glutamine, is it the cause? No symptoms. Worried. Is 90ok?
Normal: This is normal biologic variation. Glutamine/L-glutamine has been promoted as helpful in muscle building, but there is little evidence of this in healthy individuals. It does seem to be helpful in disease states such as cancer treatment, wound healing and AIDs. Both of the fasting glucose results you report are normal; the third one could be 90... or 80, etc. Normal is <100 mg/dl. ...Read more

Recently bloodwork for fasting insulin. How is this different that a glucose tolerance test or a fasting glucose test?
Different tests: Insulin & glucose are 2 different ways to measure diabetes. Insulin is produced by pancreas to keep sugars under control. We measure glucose to see how well sugars are controlled. Think of glucose as speedometer & Insulin as tachometer (hgba1c is avg trip speed - ask a car nut if this doesn't make sense). Glucose tolerance test requires drinking sugar whereas other 2 tests don't. ...Read more
My daughters sugar levelswere 8.1 and she went for a fasting glucose test the following day but I was told it will be following day results in but 2nd day still waiting is this normal or is something wrong. She is a bedwetter and overweight with asthma.?
Hemoglobin A1C: If the test you are referring to is your daughter's hemoglobin a1c level, then your daughter is part of the growing epidemic of children with diabetes. Her asthma may well be due to her obesity. First, you need the results of more tests, because one single test could have an erroneous result. Either way, if your daughter is overweight, the sooner you and she get educated about food the better. ...Read more

Realize that: Many things can cause symptoms of diabetes. Not sure exactly which symptoms you are referring, but the most classic are polyuria (urinating too much), nocturia (urinating in the middle of the night) and polydipsia (drinking too much water). Ideally you would have either a hemoglobin A1C, or "fasting" plasma glucose, or an oral glucose tolerance test (less commonly done now). ...Read more

Adrenals: Shaking is low sugar your sugar runs slightly above 100 per hba1c 5.0 =100.
