Plasma Glucose Vs Whole Blood 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

Normal body response: When you are sick, your body secretes certain hormones in response to the stress on the body, including steroids. This will cause a rise in the blood glucose, even if the child hasn't been eating. It is totally normal and expected. She is not diabetic and nothing to worry about. ...Read more
Probably not: You are defined as being pre-diabetic and probably not diabetic. The easiest way to determine if you are diabetic is to get your hemoglobin A1c tested. The good news is that pre-diabetics that exercise and change their diets can often return to normal. Avoid products with white sugar, white flour, white rice, and pasta. ...Read more
Large for gestationa: The mother has a large for gestational age infant. This is sometimes due to gestational diabetes. At times it is because of maternal overweight or the development of gestational diabetes in the future pregnancies.

What does it mean on a A1c where it shows a 6.1 for value and then mean plasma glucose of 140 being normal?
Repeat test: The A1C test result reflects your average blood sugar level for the past two to three months. For someone who doesn't have diabetes, a normal A1C level can range from 4.5 to 6 percent. A result between 5.7 and 6.4 percent is considered prediabetes, which indicates a high risk of developing diabetes. When the test is used to diagnose, a level of 6.5 percent or more on 2 occasions is diagnostic. ...Read more
Not normal: Fasting glucose of 6 mmol/l is equal to 108 mg/dl which put you in the pre-diabetes range (100-125 mg/dl). If this is the first time you see this, repeat it again to see if this was not just a lab error. If you truly worries about diabetes, ask for a a1c test on the next blood draw as well. This test is more stable and give an average of your last 3 month blood sugar. ...Read more
HemoglobinA1C 1year ago was 5.9% after 1 year of metformin500 twice now is 5.3% . But the Fasting Mean plasma glucose still above 115. Stop metformin?
Stay on for now: You still have fasting hyperglycemia which increases your risk for developing diabetes. If you are tolerating metformin well, I would continue it for now. Studies show moderate aerobic exercise and a low glycemic diet can reduce the onset of diabetes in pre diabetics by 58%. Improve ur physical activity and diet then reevaluate need for metformin with repeat labs in 3-6 months. ...Read more
My mean plasma glucose is 111; hba1c is 5.3. My doctor said i don't have diabetes, but isn't my glucose high?
No: A1c between5.7 to 6.5 indicated pre diabetes. > 6.5 indicates diabetes. Having said that diabetes is more like a gradient disease- by that what i mean is with an a1c of 5.3 your risk of diabetes is slightly higher than a person with a1c of 4.8. Life style modifications with diet and exercise will decrease this risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
