Temporary High Blood Sugar
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 sugar levels: For children and non-pregnant adults, normal blood sugar (glucose) level is considered <100 mg/dl in fasting morning state, and <140 mg/dl after a meal. Anything above these levels is considered either pre-diabetes (fasting 100-125, post-meal 140-199) or diabetes mellitus (fasting >=126, post-meal >=200 mg/dl). Low blood sugar varies depending on person, but typically is considered <60-70 mg/dl. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What can cause high insulin with low blood sugar? Besides insulinomas? 54-69 blood sugar 11-22 insulin when low.

But to be able to better interpret the data you provided, more information around the circumstances when these numbers were acquired is necessary. ...Read more

Seems unlikely : Low blood sugars stimulate a counter regulatory response whereby hormones including adrenaline and cortisol are secreted into the blood stream to help the body make more sugar. Both of these hormones tend to increase blood pressure. When the brain is deprived of its fuel source counter regulation works in a way to keep up the blood supply and glucose feeding the brain. ...Read more
Metabolic syndrome: Hi. Much as I hate the name "metabolic syndrome", it has stuck. It includes obesity, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, a particular type of lipid abnormality, and higher risk of cardiovascular disease. It's not that the high sugar causes the high blood pressure (often the high blood pressure antedates the high blood sugar), but the underlying metabolic aberration(s) cause the whole picture. ...Read more
FBS: I presume you have type 1 diabetes given your age. My apologies if your doctor has said you have type 2 diabetes and he is correct. Very unlikely unless you are substantially overweight. You should check your blood sugar almost all day if you have type 1 diabetes. There is excellent safe equipment for continuous blood sugar control. Can you please give me some more information about your diabetes. ...Read more
Diabetes: Your blood sugar goes up transiently after you eat. Diabetes is diagnosed when you blood sugar is too high, either when you are fasting, or a continuous high sugar most of the time. Diabetes is caused by either a deficiency of the pancreatic hormone insulin, or by the body's resistance to insulin, or a combination of factors. Obesity causes Insulin resistance and is causing a surge in diabetes. ...Read more
No, but...: If a man's hemoglobin is more than 17.5 or thereabouts, it's worth trying to find the cause. Extremely viscous blood (igm, extremely polythemia) may require extra pressure to pump, but in such situations the problem is obvious. ...Read more
If blood sugar levels remain too high the body suppresses appetite over the short term. Long-term hyperglycemia causes many of the long-term health problems including heart disease, eye, kidney, and nerve damage. The most common cause of hyperglycemia is diabetes. When diabetes is the cause, physicians typically recommend an ...Read more
