Blood Glucose Level 90

Blood Sugar 90 Mg/dl (4.99mmol/l) After Eating - Is That Good Or Bad?

It is normal for blood sugar levels to rise immediately after a meal. The increased glucose is a product of the carbohydrates in the food that was just consumed. The higher blood glucose triggers the pancreas to produce more insulin. This release of insulin usually takes place within about 10 minutes of eating. The insulin removes the glucose from the blood and stores it for the body to use as energy. In a healthy individual, blood glucose levels should return to a normal level within about two hours after finishing the meal. In diabetics, the blood sugar level often remain elevated for a longer period because of the body’s inability to produce or utilize insulin properly.An elevated two-hour postprandial (after a meal) blood sugar may indicate diabetes or prediabetes. As a general rule, a normal two- hour postprandial blood sugar is as follows: • Age 50 and under: Less than 140 mg/dl • Age 50 – 60: Less than 150 mg/dl • Over age 60: Less than 160 mg/dl A doctor may recommend different postprandial blood sugar levels based on an individual’s particular circumstances and health history. Several factors may cause a person’s postprandial blood sugar to remain elevated. Continue reading >>

    Normal Fasting Blood Sugar and Other Information

    Normal Fasting Blood Sugar:
    A normal fasting blood sugar (which is also the blood sugar a normal person will see right before a meal) is:
    83 mg/dl (4.6 mmol/L) or less.
    Many normal people have fasting blood sugars in the mid and high 70 mg/dl (3.9 mmol/L) range.
    Though most doctors will tell you any fasting blood sugar under 100 mg/dl (5.6 mmol/L) is "normal", there are several studies that suggest that testing with a fasting blood sugar in the mid 90 mg/dl (5 mmol/L) range often predicts diabetes that is diagnosed a decade later.
    Post-Meal Blood Sugar (Postprandial)
    Independent of what they eat, the blood sugar of a truly normal person is:
    Under 120 mg/dl (6.6 mmol/L) one or two hours after a meal.
    Most normal people are under 100 mg/dl (5.5 mmol/L) two hours after eating.
    A truly normal A1c is between 4.6% and 5.4%
    A1cs are not as good a measure of actual blood sugar control in individuals as they are for groups. An A1c of 5.1% maps to an average blood sugar of 100 mg/dl (5.6 mmol/L) or less when group statistics are analyzed, but normal variations in how our red blood cells work make the A1cs of truly normal individuals fall into a wider range.
    Some people's A1cs are always a bit higher than their measured blood sugars would predict. Some are always lower. NOTE: If you are anemic your A1c will read much lower than your actual blood sugars and the resulting A1c is not a useful gauge of your actual blood sugar control.
    Heart attack risk rises in a straight line fashion as A1c rises from 4.6%.

    Diabetic normal value FBS 70 -1oo mg/dlsome of them says 80-120 as normal

    Thank you for this information on A1c, which always has me confused. My blood sugars run between 120 and 60 but my A1c is 7.4. I was told that was because I had two shots of cortisone and also because I took prednisone during the three month period that the A1c covered. Is this true?

  • What Is The Difference Between Blood Sugar Level And Glucose Level

    Blood sugar, or blood glucose, is sugar that the bloodstream carries to all the cells in the body to supply energy. Blood sugar or blood glucose measurements represent the amount of sugar being transported in the blood during one instant. The sugar comes from the food we eat. The human body regulates blood glucose levels so that they are neither too high nor too low. The blood's internal environment must remain stable for the body to function. Th ...

  • How Does The Body Regulate The Level Of Blood Glucose

    Glucose in the bloodstream provides the primary fuel for all body tissues. Blood glucose levels are highest during the digestive period after a meal. Your blood sugar is lowest when the stomach and intestines are empty. Under normal circumstances, the body tightly controls the amount of insulin in your blood. An organ called the pancreas, which is tucked behind the stomach releases the hormones insulin and glucagon to regulate blood sugar levels. ...
