Blood Sugar (Definition)

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

Hi there. Would just like to know what is the normal range for urea, creatinine and glucose to be in a blood test?

Hi there. Would just like to know what is the normal range for urea, creatinine and glucose to be in a blood test?

They vary but,,: Normal ranges for constituents like these vary slightly from lab to lab, but basically, the ranges should be about 2.0-8.0 mg/dl for men and 1.5-6.9 mg/dl for women for uric acid. Creatinine in serum is generally < 1.5 mg/dl for both men and women, while serum glucose is usually about 75-115 mg/dl for men and women. Blood urea nitrogen has a normal range of 10-20 mg/dl. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Can rapidly fluctuating blood glucose levels in normal range trigger seizures?

Can rapidly fluctuating blood glucose levels in normal range trigger seizures?

Not likely: Hypoglycemia (blood glucose less than 50, a typically less than 40) can be associated with seizures, but I have never heard of fluctuations within the normal range causing it. ...Read more

I am hearing that a healthy normal range of blood glucose in a healthy adult can be 70--120. Some MD's think 120 means high diabetes and insulin(?).

I am hearing that a healthy normal range of blood glucose in a healthy adult can be 70--120. Some MD's think 120 means high diabetes and insulin(?).

Yes: early Type 2 Diabetes or "Pre-Diabetes" is now a TREATABLE disorder and it is thought that EARLY treatment is beneficial but NOT INSULIN. An oral hypoglycemic (such as METFORMIN) is usually chosen! (along with dietary changes and weight loss if obese) Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

What is the range of normal "fasting" whole blood glucose? May i also get your reference? Thanks!

What is the range of normal "fasting" whole blood glucose? May i also get your reference? Thanks!

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

I am 20 years old weighing 155lbs and my blood glucose ranges from 110-155 is that normal?

I am 20 years old weighing 155lbs and my blood glucose ranges from 110-155 is that normal?

UnfortunatelyNo High: Healthy fasting: ~70-90 mg/dl. Peak after eating ?140 mg/dl. Better yet is hba1c, optimal 5.0% (relative to cv ds events within 5 yrs people middle aged), not called dm until 6.5% by ada & ada recs tx to 7.0% which most people do not reach. Excellent glucose control quite achievable with emphasis on lchf foods, see taubes, attia, nusi.Org, science for smart people, dietdoctor, lustig, fatchance. ...Read more

I have no glucose in urine and a normal random blood glucose. Could i still have diabetes?

Yes: The diagnosis of diabetes is not usually made or excluded based on a urine glucose or a random blood sugar. If you are concerned that you may have diabetes you should see your primary doctor for proper assessment which may involve doing a fasting blood sugar, a hemoglobin a1c - which looks at average blood sugar over the last 3 months, and/or an oral glucose tolerance test. ...Read more

How likely is it that I have insulin resistance, if my random blood glucose levels are normal?

How likely is it that I have insulin resistance, if my random blood glucose levels are normal?

Varies: The answer depends on many things, including what risk factors you currently have (obesity, metabolic syndrome, family history of diabetes...) just because you have a normal random blood sugar does not rule out Insulin resistance. Your body might keep your bs normal at the expense of very high level of Insulin in early diabetes. You need to measure glucose, Insulin and c-peptide level as a start. ...Read more

I have no glucose in urine and a normal random blood glucose, but could i still have diabetes?

Probably not: Usually diabetics out of control will show glucose in urine. You can still be a diabetic but showing glucose only when u have a high glucose intake. Only way to prove you are not diabetic is with a glucose challenge blood test and a hemoglobina1c blood test. There are diabetics contrlled with diet and others that require insulin. ...Read more
