Is it possible for a man to have normal fasting blood sugar but elevated 2-hour pp sugar? If it is possible, what is this condition called and what kind of treatment is available for this?
Yes: As one is developing diabetes, the first abnormality is a rise in the post prandial sugar. Since blood tests are typically done fasting, we usually do not diagnose sugar problems until the fasting sugar is high. Normal post prandial sugars can be as high as 140 mg/dl, but we do not diagnose diabetes until they > 200. Treatment is similar to diabetes; avoiding concentrated sweets, lose weight. ...Read more
Lifestyle changes!: That level is consistent with diabetes. The diagnosis needs another fasting or an A1c level checked (another lab to check glucose over 3 months) to confirm it and help guide your treatment. The foundation for managing diabetes is diet and exercise. Especially watch portion control, and cut out empty calories such as sodas. Be active! Get close followup as dm is serious and meds may be needed too. ...Read more
No: Do get checked from time to time. If it's over 126 mg/dL perhaps on more than one occasion, the diagnosis might be made. ...Read more

Glucose tolerance test is "normal" under 140. ...Read more

Probably OK: The normal range for fasting blood sugar is anything from 70 to 99. From 100 to 125 indicates prediabetes. A value of 98 is at the high end of normal. However, blood sugar can fluctuate a lot due to biological and measurement variability. Rechecking fasting sugar a couple times is important. If it remains near 100 then a low glycemic index diet and aerobic exercise should help reduce it. ...Read more

Your fluctuations are well within normal. ...Read more
My fasting blood sugar changed within one month. In January it showed 79 and in February it was 90. Normal? Does it flactuate, if so what r the reasons?
Both normal: Both of the readings are in the normal range. There are a number of factors that may explain the 11 mg difference, e.g. the second specimen was analyzed more quickly after collection, your fasting state was not equivalent for the two tests, there is an accepted 6 mg variation between two tests done on the same sample. If the two tests were done in different labs, that would add to the variability. ...Read more
