Hello I'm Haley 21 years old. I have been vitamin D deficient for 8 months and I am taking 150,000 units of vitamin D once a week. My levels have slightly improved. But recently I have lost about 8 pounds over the holidays. And I have been eating more, I have maintained my healthy weight for years and to lose weight suddenly scares me when I am doing nothing different. I also have noticed that I constantly have dry mouth but not increased thirst. No one in my family has diabetes but I went out and go a meter to see what my levels were.
My fasting level (last eating at 10:00 PM and took the test at 10:30 AM this morning) it was 106
Took a random test about 30 mins after eating breakfast and it was 120
And two hours after eating my blood sugar was 132
Is there any reason I should be concerned with these numbers ?
these numbers are higher than would be considered strictly normal.
Normal fasting should be <90, normal 2 hours after eating should be (according to drs. < 120), but actually truely normal would already be < 100 and getting close back to the fasting level (though this does depend how much carbs you ate).
Your levels are not alarming, but would recommend some more testing (A1C - will tell you average blood sugars), plus some monitoring of fasting and post eating. If Drs say you are ok, would still recommend you do monitor from time and be conscious of diet, exercise etc.
Are you overweight. IF so, please work on normalising weight. Eating a lower carb diet and regular aerobic exercise will also help.
