Mouthwash Before Fasting Glucose Tests
Fasting glucose 5.0, then smoothy bananas+oats+dates, 1hour after 9.5, 2hours 6.3, 3hours 4.2. Prediabetes? Fasting and random tests are always normal
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
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. We can measure Insulin to determine how much effort pancreas is making to control sugars. Think of glucose as speedometer & Insulin as tachometer (hgba1c is avg trip speed - ask a car nut if this doesn't make sense). ...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
Blood test: measure serum lipase fasting, then measure again 30 min after lundh meal. How much should lipase rise?
Fasting glucose 85. then GTT hour 1glucose 84, hour 2 glucose 94. what would cause this odd response?
Normal variability: So for that test, you basically get a dose of glucose to see if your blood sugar remains elevated. Our bodies respond very quickly to glucose, meaning that it gets taken up by our muscles and liver almost immediately after it enters the blood stream. Our body's "thermostat" is set to keep the blood sugar level between 70-99. Over 100 indicates a problem with glucose metabolism. Yours is normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am pcos pregnant woman did gestational diabetes test (glucose after 1 hr) & fasting glucose test after fasting for 13 hrs,will this affect result?
Diabetes Control: Fasting under 100 is normal, treated under 120 is pretty good, over 140 not so good. 2 hours after meals normal is 140 to 150 and good control is the same , add 10-20 or so. Many people manage looser but i try to get better control without risking low blood sugars which can be very bad so be careful and work with your doctor closely. ...Read more
I am prediabetic with higher blood sugar and insulin levels. L just had a 3 hour glucose tolerance test. Fasting sugar is 63, insulin is 2. Meaning?
Doesn't matter: The numbers aren't really important or valuable. If you're overweight and have high glucose (particularly with a positive family history) you need education, diet, exercise, weight reductio and maybe medication -- not just a diagnosis. The diagnosis doesn't help you get healthier. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Fasting glucose116. Other CMP results normal. Urine shows 1+ on glucose. Any of her meds cause urine glucose? Aciphex, (rabeprazole) valium, warfarin, amoxicillian
Not ideal: There are multiple tests for diabetes but preferred are fasting glucose and hemoglobin A1c levels. Generally, these are tested on two separate occasions to confirm the diagnosis unless the numbers are way out of range. Non-fasting glucose with symptoms suggestive of diabetes can be reliable. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
