Non Fasting Blood Glucose
What to do if I have a non fasting blood glucose reading of 110. Do what to do if I have pre diabetes?
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
I have tested with a non fasting blood glucose level of 144 and a fasting level of 126. My A1C is 5.8. Is this considered diabetes or prediabetes?
Yesterday I had a health screening at work. My non-fasting blood glucose was 72. I ate about 2 hours before and am not diabetic. Is this too low?
Non-fasting glucose blood sugar test and had a symptom of diabetes. Doctor tells me that my blood work is fine. So should is that reliable? Or do I need another work up?
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
Normal fasting: 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 for info. ...Read more
Ranges: Normal blood sugars run under 100 fasting. Anything over 128 is considered diabetes. Between 100- 120 is considered fairly reasonable control for most diabetics.Oftentimes people on oral medication are controlled better than people on insulin. Only your doctor can give you the range that is right for you because there are many factors involved on our target selection. ...Read more
74-106: That's "technicaliy" the "normal range", but only for blood drawn from a vein in the fasting state. After meal glucoses and hba1dc determination are also important if you're concerned re: diagnosis of diabetes. Don't be worried if your glucose is slightly lower than the above range. Be aware that what is considered "normal" changes from time to time and has been slowly lowering over years. ...Read more
My fasting blood glucose has recently gone up to 6.6mmol.I've had reactive hypo for 11 years.Should i be concerned?
Yes, 11 years: Ago your so-called "hypoglycemia" was a return to normal glucose after a meal when you were obese and Insulin resistant. That has worsened with age (and probably with further weight gain) and you've gone from from Insulin resistance into prediabetes and probably full diabetes. You need to eat less and exercise more and may need medication. See your doctor. ...Read more
