Tests For Blood Sugar (glucose) And Hba1c

Blood sugar (glucose) measurements are used to diagnose diabetes. They are also used to monitor glucose control for those people who are already known to have diabetes.

    I have noticed that the most popular threads on here are the ones with morning fasting rates, that a lot of people post in every day (Some have really low figures) My fasting rates average 6.2 to 7.1 (More 6 than 7) with the occasional 5. The figures seem unrelated to what I eat, and I have stopped worrying too much about it as nothing I do seems to affect it.
    I was talking to my doctor, who has a modern view on diabetes and lower carbing, and his view is that he discounts almost completely the fasting figures, and concentrates solely on the HbAc1 reading, as that is the best overall measure.
    Is there a general view on this? My Hb figure is generall OK, at 41/42 for the past 2 years, and he is very happy with that.
    What do others think, or should I put some more effort into the fasting figures? I am current eating a pretty steady 140g of carbs a day.

    Click to expand... Clearly the HbA1c is the figure the medics now use to view/judge your control, but clearly that's an average. For me, keeping an eye on my other bloods (fasting and meal related ones) is a bit like looking after the pennies, then the pounds look after themselves.
    For me, the best way to have half a clue what my HbA1c is going to be is to have a handle on the other readings.

    140 grams of carbs/day is about 700% more than I eat per day. I am sure that you could improve your FBG results by making a reduction in your carbohydrate intake. You can easily put this to the test and see for yourself.
