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

R/O DIABETES 2: HBA1C of 6.5 is the cut off for Diabetes 2, it is a very common condition. The first step is to focus on weight loss. Weight gain/Obesity is at the root of most adult onset diabetes .

Are you allowed to take medication or not while testing blood glucose after taking medicine at breakfast?
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

I'm htnsive/dyslipidemic under meds and pci stenting 6 mo. Back and I have impaired glucose tolorence. Do i need medication for sugar?
Good question.: Generally i would say yes since you have known coronary artery disease and other risk factors. It would of course depend on how bad the ifg / igt is. It is easy to check a hemoglobin a1c. If it were een slightly elevated i would probably start you on metformin 500 to 1000 mg/day and see how well you tolerate. If no downside i would continue. ...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

Interplay: Hi. Only insulin can lower blood sugar. Glucagon, epinephrine, cortisol, & growth hormone raise blood sugar. During a short fast (e.g., overnight), it's mostly interplay between insulin & glucagon. As longer fasts are encountered, the other hormones (esp. cortisol) play increasing roles. ...Read more
