M58 fasting glucose 121mg/dl, A1c 5.6%(normal 4.3 to 6.1) triglycerides 545 mg/dl , this is without any diet control or medication. Advise what to do?
Prediabetic: Although the hba1c is normal, the fasting glucose is high (diabetic would be >125) and triglycerides are very high. If you are overweight, have hypertension, or HDL chol <40, you have metabolic syndrome. You need to restrict carbs/starches in your diet, do regular aerobic exercise, and if overweight, you need to lose weight. Diabetes is just around the corner for you. ...Read more
What could be the reason for elevated glucose levels @ about 7.5 mml even though one has not changed lifestyle in terms of diet, medication and exe?
Diabetes treatment: You have diabetes and are taking metformin. A glu of 7.5 (135 mg/dl) is a relatively good level. It is better to follow your a1c. If you have only had diabetes a few years, and are only on metformin, you should aim for an a1c less than 7.5. Focus on exercise and diet. Your glu will vary day to day. Perhaps stress. But take a long term approach. ...Read more

Visual Migraine?: A visual migraine is the visual aura of a migraine headache, but without the headache. This can be triggered by certain foods. People will see in both eyes either zig zag flashing lights or an effect like heat coming off of a car for 5-30 minutes, and the visual disturbance moves peripherally to the side and then stops. There is usually a blind spot in the vision as well, where the lines are. ...Read more

How many carbs are considered low carb when trying to lower HbA1C and glucose? After lower what should one limit their carb intake for daily? Thanks!
Not 1 size fits all: For people with type 1 DM, restricting carbs is not usually part of the strategy, other than trying to eat a consistent amount of carbs, or accurately counting carbs and dosing insulin to cover that amount. For people with type 2 diabetes, the best diet is one they can stick to longterm. Usually, very low carb diets (Atkins, ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I read that anything under 70mg/dl on the one hour glucose test for gestational diabetes is low and means hypoglycemia.Mine is 66. What does this mean?
THere are none: There are no low glucose levels with pregnancy gtt, only good normal levels. Hypoglycemaa doesn't occur in human beings who aren't receiving treatment for diabetes or have end stage cancer, liver or kidney failure, etc. Particularly in pregnancy, glucose normal levels are much lower than non-pregnancy, a lower number is an excellent sign, . ...Read more
Do potassium blood levels change as fast as glucose blood levels? I have premature beats worse when K is low jw if my levels can be normal one day and back low the next, has been down to 3.1 but idk whybI take a ppi but no other reason I can think of
Low potassium levels: Usually the body regulates potassium levels well, but certainly both underlying conditions, such as kidney issues and medicines you take, can influence the level. While your level of 3.1 is not dangerously low, it certainly is a concern if you're experiencing multiple lab reports with low values. You should make an appointment with your doctor to discuss this. Also look at the PPI use. ...Read more

Are you allowed to take medication or not while testing blood glucose after taking medicine at breakfast?
Please clarify: Hi. I'm confused. For standard diabetes tests (either fasting glucose or a glucose tolerance test) you go in for the test FASTING (i.e., NO BREAKFAST!). I'm not as worried about the meds messing up the test as I am by the fact you ate breakfast! The test is probably invalid. Be sure to tell your doctor who ordered the test. May have to repeat it. Good luck. PS Water is OK before & during test. ...Read more
