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

Would a pre-diabetic person go back to a normal blood sugar level?

Would a pre-diabetic person go back to a normal blood sugar level?

Yes but it takes har: Diabetes can be reversed as long as it is in the prediabetes stage. But it requires a lot of effort to make lifestyle changes. This would include getting the weight down to a healthy level...Losing 5-10% of body weight is required. This can be done with reduction in caloric intake(eating less) and exercising daily for minimum of 30 minutes. More than half of the folks can bring down their sugar.

Curious whether glucobetic capsule is helpful in keeping the blood sugar level in normal range?

NO, IT'S NOT: It just another of the millions of internet and supplement scams that take your money, don't help you, and could potentially put toxins into your body. You don't know what's in the pill or how it's supposed to help you -- then why on earth would you pay money to do that to yourself? Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. See diabetes.Org or your doctor.

Is a blood sugar level of 138 normal for a 106lb 24 year old female normal when she hasnt eat anything for five hours?

Hi blood sugars: The elevated blood sugar you mentioned is suggestive but not diagnostic of hyperglycemia. Other tests such as h.A1c and fasting blood sugar would be better diagnostically.

Elevated: A glucose of 7.2 mmol/li (129 mg/dl) is elevated. If it is consistently in this range it is consistent with diabetes. I would encourage you to see your primary physician to discuss this. The abnormality is mild and could likely be treated with diet and exercise.

Hoping you can tell me, is blood sugar level of 111 in the evening normal?

Information: It depends on what was eaten for supper. If there was no supper, the 111 is at the high end of normal. If you are concerned about diabetes, then you should get a hemoglobin a1c performed.

Is a blood sugar level of 95 normal for a 17 year old 5 hours after having a meal?

Yes it is: but it's in the high normal range. If you're obese it would also be important to see what your glucose is 2 hours after a meal and even do a hba1c to evaluate long term glucose levels. Discuss it with your doctor.

Is a blood sugar level of 4.8 just after eating normal?

It depends: Upon how long after eating, but is probably normal. Fasting or two hour post-meal is easier to evaluate as there are scientific standards for these time points. An a1c will evaluate glucose over past 3 mos. No matter what your blood sugar, if you're overweight begin a program of education, diet, exercise and weight loss.

Could a blood sugar level of 104 fasting cause diabetic neuropathy? My legs are dry, shrinking and feel weak. I'm walking slower than normal.

Could a blood sugar level of 104 fasting cause diabetic neuropathy? My legs are dry, shrinking and feel weak. I'm walking slower than normal.

Unlikely: In order to be diagnosed with diabetes, you have to show abnormalities in one of several ways: fasting glucose over 100 mg/dl, or HgA1c over 6.5% at two separate testing, or a random glucose test > 200 mg/dl. Therefore I would consider the level of 104 fasting mildly abnormal and unless it was elevated at other times in the past, that level by itself is unlikely to cause a true neuropathy.

Blood sugar: Mean level is 5.5mmol/l or 100mg./dl. , although it fluctuates during the day where it rises after meals. The normal fasting level is 70-100 mg./dl. If not fasting, the level should not exceed 125 mg./dl. For diabetics, the level should be 70-130 fasting, or less than 180 after meals.

How do I get my blood sugar level back to normal?

How do I get my blood sugar level back to normal?

Meat and veggies: Eat only meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry and low starch veggies, drink only water. In other words avoid all carbs, carbs will only briefly raise your sugar levels and then you will get hungry again. The fats in the meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry will act like a "log on your metabolic fire" to keep your blood sugar stable for hours.
