What Are The Proper Glucose Levels In Children Without Diabetes
Ideally less than150: But as you know very hard to achieve. But that was not the question you asked. Normal blood stars should not be below 60 though most children will have reactions far above this number because they are used to living too hogh. A low blood sugar reaction is not caused by a number but how rapidly the blood sugar drops do a child may have a reaction at a number of 100 if they were really high before. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
My mother aged 52 has diabetes and urinary tract infection.her sugar levels are high and not in control with insulin,food .how to reduce suger levels?
Yes: Low blood sugar can be seen in people not on diabetes drugs. A lot of times, you think you have low blood sugar but you actually don't. The only way to know is to check your bs during the times you think you have low blood sugar. If it's indeed low, go see your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not diabetes?: Diabetes is most likely and needs full evaluation including before meal and 2 hr after meal glucose testing. There could be Insulin resistance with am fasting hyperglycemia even with a1c < 6.5. Prolonged fast can cause ketones to spill into urine. Large carbohydrate load with blood gluocse after above 180 mg/dl coincident with a urine check could potentially cause positive urine glucos. ...Read more
Clinical & Lab: Pcos is a complex disease. Making a diagnosis depends on clinical and lab features including - irregular menstrual cycles, hair growth, lab evidence of excess androgen (male hormone) level, sometimes ultrasound showing cysts in the ovaries. Most pcos patients have weight issues too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Insulin & Glucose: Insulin allows cells to use glucose as fuel. It helps to regulate blood sugar. Too much will bring blood sugar down putting/keeping it in storage and making it less available to cells. When this happens, hypoglycemia occurs. One may feel shaky, dizzy, headache, nausea, sweaty, etc. Which is a prompt to treat the low blood sugar. Severe lows can cause loss of consciousness, seizure, death. ...Read more
What conditions may cause the 2 hr postprandial glucose level become lower than the fasting level in sb with a family history of DM and Psoriasis?
Hi!why patients who have live disease will have low glucose level in the blood ; and what is the relationship between glucose and potassium ?! thanks
Urine/blood: Most children with diabetes have type 1 and present with high blood sugar, very low Insulin and c-peptide and urine which is positive for glucose and ketones. A hba1c will be elevated, which is a marker of chronic blood sugar control extending over a few months back. If the child has diabetic ketoacidosis, labs will be followed hourly for glucose and electrolytes. Other blood tests are also done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A Better average: Sugar level fluctuates significantly throughout the 24 hours--dependent on intake and activities level, thus not a reliable measure of control using random testing. Glycosylated hemoglobin (a1c) is a by product of sugar metabolism and higher sugar over time=higher a1c. A1c testing is not dependent on fasting. It is an "average" measurement, thus more reliable. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
What is the glucose level in hypoglycemia and the blood pressure in hypotension ( please i want numbers ) ?
Low!: Less than 95 fasting, and less than 120 2 hours after meals. (some are a little more liberal with fastings, allowing less than 105). Gestational diabetic are less likely to have problems with fasting sugars as they are with postprandial (after meals) sugars. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Are the glucose readings that they do at the doctors office with the glucose drink the same as a person testing the glucose levels at home ?
Basically: Blood sugar determinations done in the physician's office are usually done with same type of strips that patients use with their glucometer at home as opposed to techniques used in major laboratories. However in hospitals, bedside fingerstick glucose levels are often done with testapes as well. ...Read more
65-105: 65-105 when drawn out of a vein while fasting. Various authorities have different "normal" levels. There are, however, no exact cut-offs, it's all a continuium. Finger sticks are not accurate enough for diagnosis. Two hour post meal should be less than 130-140, and any glucose >200 at any time suggests diabetes. An a1c >6% is also suggestive and needs further evaluation. See diabetes.Org for info. ...Read more
What steroid is given to some people who have high levels of protein in the urine.Does it help in reducing it.Can cretanine be reduced by any med.!!! ?
There are frequent fluctuations in the blood sugar level, making it difficult to determine the quantum of insulin to be given to my wife. What should I do?
Need carb counting: I agree with both answers given so far. Many people tend to adjust the Insulin dose based on what their sugar is at the time they take insulin. However, the much more important factor is what is being eaten. Adjusting the dose of short acting Insulin based on carb intake is far more important than adjusting based on the sugar reading. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
