Hi. I am a 22 year old male who is 6'0 and weighs 130 lbs. Recently, I went in for a physical, feeling totally fine. They had me do a fasting glucose test a week later.
I ran it, and the result came back as a 105. HOWEVER, I woke up and fainted in the bathroom, presumably because my blood sugar levels dropped. I hit my chin and was taken to urgent care. They withdrew my blood, gave me 7 stitches, and gave me some fruit juice. I understand that fainting spells spark release of glycogen stores to get sugar into the bloodstream, so I thought this could have muffled the results.
The doctor ordered a glucose random test. So several days later I went in for that. I had eaten a banana about an hour or so before the test. 2 days later I get a result of 124. The doctor is now asking for Hemoglobin A1c.
I know you guys aren't medical professionals, but isn't a value of 124 for a glucose random test well below the diabetic limit (200?) This is what all the medical help sites seems to be saying.
