What Organ Turns Excess Glucose Into Fat
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
It doesn't: There is no direct correlation.Get a more detailed answer ›
Why would there be glucose in my pee if I am not diabetic nor had I eaten any type of sugar that day especially not in excessive amounts? What is it?
What do I need to do diet wise to get fasting glucose back into the normal range. Avoid fats at night? Is a bedtime snack a good idea or not?
If your fasting glucose is elevated but you are not diabetic you have about 60% of preventing progression of the process. You should lose about 10% of your body weight, more if you are overweight, exercise at least 30 minutes/day, 5 days/week and gradually increase the intensity of exercise. It may help to consult a nutritionist for advise about diet. See this site for more info.

I'm having excessive hunger for last few weeks. Before my hunger was limited to three times a day but now wanna eat all the time. Glucose fasting 98mg%?
Need testing: There are several reasons for excessive hunger including: diabetes, hyperthyroidism, pregnancy, premenstrual syndrome, high caloric needs during exertion, and psychiatric disorders. In addition, in some patients with gastric irritation (gastritis or ulcer disease), hunger helps to reduce the discomfort. ...Read more
Is it normal excess insulin is released from pancreas during acute phases of pancreatitis, glucose plunge, and you feel acute hunger?
When glucose builds up in the blood system because of pcos, is this the same as "fat" being in your bloodstream?
Is tiredness from excessive alcohol partly due to low blood sugar? If so, can it be alleviated by taking glucose tablets?
Alcohol & blood suga: Tiredness resulting from excessive alcohol is due to a number of factors, including dehydration and the sedating affects of the alcohol. Alcohol consumption can wreak havoc with blood sugar, causing it to be too high and/or too low. Either of which can cause a person to feel tired. Individuals with diabetes often feel better if they avoid alcohol intake altogether or in strict moderation. ...Read more
Ultrasound at 40weeks today showed AFI 28cm. Excess amniotic fluid? All scans until now had normal amount. Should I worry? Glucose test was normal.
High: The AFI is a little above high normal. There can be several causes, including human error on how they measured. You say ALL scans, why were they doing more than one scan during you pregnancy. There must have been other concerns going on. But, since all were normal until now, I would suggest this is still a low risk finding. Speak with your OB for final interpretation. ...Read more
I've had excessive to severe swelling from just below the knees to tips of my toes. My glucose is normal and my ANA is neg. What could this be?
I continued to eat ice cream but no soda or candy and my HbA1C was 5.6 and glucose was 83! I'm thinking about going high fat low carb! Should I?
Don't focus on this: You've got anxiety and a history of obsessive-compulsive stuff. You give no history of diabetes. Like most young adults and all physically healthy people, you can eat what you want without your blood sugar going out of control. Devoting emotional energy to food choices will rob you of the important stuff -- building relationships and achieving high-level physical fitness. That's REAL health. ...Read more
How do I stop my glucose levels falling at only 30 minutes after breakfast. I eat a high protein, good fat and limited low GI carb and it still happens.
Eat small meals: Small frequent meals, and lots of fiber might help. Absolutely no processed foods may help. Anything that slows absorption without adding excess calories may help you avoid spikes than sound like they're causing compensatory crashes. And never drink anything containing sugar except to urgently bring your sugar up. Is your pancreatic function normal? ...Read more
After a balanced meal of healthy fats, protein, and fiberous carbs, my 1 hour glucose was 95. But after 2 hours it was 118! Is that delay worrisome?
This is reassuring: Regarding your glucose tolerance. Both results are low and do not suggest sugar or insulin problems. But it is unusual that the second hour value would be higher than the first. My first thought would be "lab error" and in normal circumstances I would suggest the test be repeated. But as both results were squarely in the normal range, I would offer you reassurance. Keep eating healthy:) ...Read more
I’m in nutritional ketosis to lose weight and burn fat instead of glucose - why am I getting cramps in my quads? What should I take for it?
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Urine test-moderate blood, high protein, renal epith- transit epith, oval fat body, glucose, all out of range. Enbrel (etanercept) the cause? Rcc cancer before.
What does it mean to have red cell distribution width 16.3h, absolute neutrophilis 9.5h, segmented neutrophils 79.7h, lymphocytes 14.2, blood gas base excess 2.8h, blood gas bicarbonate 27.9h, carbon dioxide 31h, glusoe 143h, can you explain my results?
No. Ask your doctor.: To interpret your venous blood tests we need complete blood cell count test results. To interpret your arterial blood gas test we need arterial pH and pO2 values. The only conclusions I can make with this limited data are that you may have a bacterial infection and that your blood sugar is slightly high. (?) BTW carbon dioxide of 31 is not high. Normal range is 35-45. Ask your doctor! ...Read more
Screening test.: During the glucose challenge test, you will have to drink a sugary liquid (the glucose) and then they'll draw your blood one hour later. This tests to see how well you process sugar. If the test is too high, it means you can't process the sugar effectively, and you might be at risk for diabetes. It's often done in pregnant woman to test for gestational diabetes. ...Read more
By concentration.: These work by taking a sample of blood (0.3-1ul), and spread on a test strip containing chemicals that react with the glucose in the blood (glucose oxidase or glucose dehydrogenase). After about 3 seconds, the value is displayed in mg/dl or mmol/l. There are many models with many features, llike a clock and memory. ...Read more
Depends if fasting: Normal glucose is usually considered 60 or 80 - 100; however that is based on 8-12hr fast. Patients with fasting glucose >100<124 is considered hyperglycemic; while a fasting glucose 125+ is consistent with diabetes. Clinicians also utilize a HBA1C test which assesses your average glucose over a 3 mos period. A HBA1C >5.7-6.4 is consistent with prediabetes, and 6.5+ c/w diabetes. ...Read more
