Fasting (no food for 8 hours before the test) is important, Rex. If you were indeed fasting, the result is slightly elevated.
Typically, normal blood glucose should be <100 mg/dL. Pre-diabetes occurs with fasting numbers between 100 and 125 mg/dL, and diabetes above 125.
Yes, blood glucose, like blood pressure changes from hour to hour, day to day. Just like blood pressure and hypertension, one or two elevated results doesn’t necessarily imply a diabetic condition.
Your doctor will likely keep a close watch on blood glucose, and if it continues to be elevated, might suggest management which could include diet and exercise, as well as the possibility of medicine.
Maintaining a proper body mass index (BMI), adequate exercise and monitoring carbohydrates are all good ideas, whether diabetes is diagnosed or not.
Maybe you're referring to your HbA1c? Those values seem to fit better. Here's a good link for labs results and the A1c in particular. I don't know too much about Diabetes II yet, but my glucose is starting to inch upwards, so I think I need to do some reading myself.
might help if I posted the link, huh?? :-D
thanks for your reply,
no it wasnt the hba1c test,it was 6.0 mmol/l. wich means 109 mg/dl
did you fast for the test ?
99 mg/dL = 5.5 mmol/L
125 mg/dL = 6.94 mmol/L
