Non Fasting Glucose
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

Recently had a fasting glucose of 118 (during a time of high stress). Then had AC1 - 5.2 (normal) & non-fasting glucose - 119. Should I ask for OGTT?

Probably normal: Probably normal. Most likely you're significantly overweight and have a family history of diabetes. You have a large Insulin response to eating, which drops your sugar back toward normal and causes symptoms. It won't however, ever drop your sugar below normal or be dangerous. The fix is losing weight to eliminate the need for your body to make large amounts of Insulin or drop your sugar quickly. ...Read more

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

Can fasting glucose reading be greater than pp in non diabetic person Two readings 108/84 99/94 First is fasting reading Hb1ac - 5.3?
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 more
Usually, is the prognosis for impaired fasting glucose better/more reversible at early stages than late stages, like with many other problems?
You are correct: But let's put this in simple and true terms. The mainstay of staving off type II diabetes, given that the person has the genetic tendency, is physical exercise and to a lesser extent healthy eating / staying trim. The sooner a person goes about making this central to their life, the better. ...Read more
