Why Your “normal” Blood Sugar Isn’t Normal (part 2)

Hi, I just found this site and would like to participate. I will give my numbers, etc. First, my last A1c was 6.1, the doc said it was Pre-diabetes in January of 2014, OK, I get it that part, but what confuses me is that at home, on my glucometer, all my fastings were “Normal” however, back then, I had not checked after meals, so maybe they were the culprits. Now, I am checking all the time and driving myself crazy. In the morning sometimes fasting is 95 and other times 85, it varies day to day. Usually, after a low carb meal, it drops to the 80’s the first hour and lower the second. On some days, when I am naughty and eat wrong, my b/s sugar is still low, and on other days, I can eat the same thing, and it goes sky high, again, not consistent. Normally, however, since February, my fbs is 90, 1 hour after, 120, 2nd hour, back to 90, but, that changes as well. In February, of 2014, on the 5th, it was horrible. I think I had eaten Lasagne, well, before, my sugars did not change much, but that night, WHAM-O I started at 80 before the meal, I forgot to take it at the one and two hour mark, but did at the 3 hour mark, it was 175, then at four hours, down to 160, then at 5 hours, b Continue reading >>

    Prediabetes and blood glucose levels

    I bought myself a home monitoring blood glucose tester as I was very worried I was prediabetic/type 2 diabetes. I am 58 and overweight and do little exercise.. My fasting blood glucose level taken this morning was 5.7 and I was wondering if anyone knew if this level is high and should I test myself again after a meal. I have been looking on the internet and one page says above 5.5 is prediabetic another says 6.0. Can anyone help?

  2. archemedes

    This is the danger of people who have no need for a BG meter, buying one.
    Self-diagnosis simply does not work.
    If you suspect that your symptoms might indicate that you are pre-diabetic or fully diabetic, then the place to go is to your doctor who will give you an HBA1c haemoglobin test which is far more accurate than guesswork.
    As it so happens an individual reading of 5.5 to 6.0 mmol is considered to be within the acceptable range.
    If you have any doubts please go to see your doctor.

    I agree with Archemedes. I wonder why you thought you might be pre-diabetic and also why you bought a BG monitor. They are not cheap whereas a blood test from the doctor does nt cost anything (assuming you are from the UK) and is much more accurate. There are of course things you could do now to help yourself such as losing weight, eating a healthy diet, and taking more exercise. However, the most important thing is to see a doctor and get it properly checked out.

Visit http://www.restorebloodsugar.clic27.c... How To Lower Morning Blood Sugar | High Blood Sugar In The Morning Hi my name is Bryanna Wayans! Welcome to my channel and to this video, today I will teach you how to lower morning blood sugar. Follow the step by step instructions to have great results. Weight loss, especially soon after diagnosis of type 2 diabetes, can help the hormonal disturbances, increase insulin sensitivity, and lowerblood sugar levels. You'll see blood glucose drop before the pounds do. For people who have had type 2 diabetes for many years, losing weight alone is unlikely to correct fasting highs or other highs through the day -- medication, possibly in more than one category, is likely needed. A small bedtime snack containing some carbohydrate, but no more than 20 grams, can help you wake up with better fasting blood glucose. A bedtime snack shortens the time span that the liver is in overdrive producing glucose while you sleep. You can eat as snack: Low-fat yogurt One serving of bite-size tortilla chips and fresh salsa Hummus and edamame (soybeans) Small piece of fruit Sugar-free frozen pops Frozen grapes No matter what kind of aerobic activity you do or what time of day you do it, moving more enhances the body's response to insulin. Being inactive is bad for us. Some is better than none; more is better than less. The best activities are: Do 10 minutes of stretching after getting out of bed. Park your car in the back of the parking lot to get in more walking Take the stairs when, and if, you can. Grab a friend to go on an early morning walk with you. Sit on an exercise ball while on the computer or watching TV. Before acting on a solution to lower your morning fasting blood sugar, consider the blood sugar numbers on your meter, yourA1C results, your lifestyle, your schedule, the medications your health plan covers, and what you can afford. Use meter checks and regularA1C resultsto assess the solutions you try. Remember that your fasting blood sugar numbers tell you how you made it through the night. Checks midway through your sleep cycle cast light on what's happening overnight. Be ready to change your solutions if you don't hit your targets quickly and as your years with diabetes add up. Now you can normalized blood sugar in a safe and natural way, if you want to discover how to change your life Visit right now my website http://www.restorebloodsugar.clic27.c...

Why Is My Blood Glucose So High In The Morning?

I am puzzled by my blood sugar pattern. I am not on any medications. My morning fasting blood sugar is always the highest of the day—between 120 and 140 mg/dl. The rest of the day it is in the normal range. Why does this occur? Continue reading >>

    So, my fasting blood sugar numbers have been consistently between 93 and 95 mg/DL – and while I’m not convinced that this number really should even be classified as gestational diabetes, it does technically meet the really aggressive new definitions that have been adopted for gestational diabetes in recent years (which flags about 20% of women in the US). And on days when I am up all night long with Samson, my blood sugar can between 100 and 110mg/DL when i Wake up
    What’s frustrating is that my post-prandial numbers are totally normal – always below 120 at 1 hour and often below 100 or 90, and by 3 or 4 hours by blood sugar is often in the 60s or 70s. So I really don’t think taking a long-acting insulin or metformin makes sense, given that I’m already running on the low end. I’m honestly scared of going hypoglycemic at night.
    Anyways, @Eric , or anyone else who has knows a lot about how exercise affects blood sugar, I’m wondering what is the optimal time to do exercise in the day so that my body is ferrying glycogen into my muscles overnight, thereby reducing my fasting blood sugar?
    And what would be a good exercise regime to increase insulin sensitivity overnight? Is cardio like running enough? Or should I be doing some kind of strength training?Because I’m somewhat pressed for time, my plan right now is to just run up to the top of the hill on our street – so three or four long blocks of pretty steep ascent, followed by run back down. I can’t take an hour for exercise during the day because of work. So I’m hoping to accomplish this goal with 30 minutes sometime during the day.
    I am not concerned about my BGs in the immediate aftermath of the exercise as I’m not struggling with numbers throughout the day. I just want to keep the fasting numbers in range.
    I’m happy to try dietary tips too – and online there are many, like having a small protein or carb snack before bed – but so far the effect seems pretty limited. It seems like you can do a ton of stuff to fix post-prandial numbers with exercise but fixing fasting numbers is a lot tougher.

    And then there are all these hacks that seem pointless. A lot of women suggest things like “test at 10 hours instead of 8 and your number will be golden” – but that seems silly given that it is not actually changing your overnight fasting numbers, which are presumably the problem rather than the specific, individual number 8 hours after you last ate.

  2. Eric

    TiaG:
    I’m wondering what is the optimal time to do exercise in the day so that my body is ferrying glycogen into my muscles overnight, thereby reducing my fasting blood sugar?
    There are a lot of interesting things to look at!
    Cardio is what you want. Weight lifting has benefits for other things, but if you want to specifically target BG, it would definitely be cardio.
    Your body will use multiple fuel sources at the same time, and use them in different amounts for whatever conditions make sense at the time.
    Since you are looking at something specifically for fasting times, and for longer times at night, you want to do something with an intensity that makes the most use of muscle glycogen, rather than fat metabolism or glucose that is in your blood at the time of the exercise. Ideally you would do something that causes your body to pull glucose from your blood during the nighttime in order to replace muscle glycogen.
    Any exercise will help you to some degree, but if you burn a higher amount of fat, it will not accomplish this as effectively. If you do something that is too low of an intensity, your body will use more fat. You don’t want that.
    If you do it right after you eat, your body will also use more of the immediately available glucose, and that reduces the amount of muscle glycogen you will use.
    Ideally, you want something before dinner, and long enough after lunch so that your body’s choice of ideal fuel is muscle glycogen.
    You want your intensity to be more muscle glycogen related (as reference, see how-does-my-body-fuel-exercise ).
    Since you have time constraints, you want to try to do a steady state cardio event that lasts the duration that fits into your schedule.
    So if you only have 30 minutes and you wanted to run, that time should be a fairly consistent effort. Aim for steady state heart rate for the whole time. The intensity or pace should make you feel this way:
    “I could to this for 10 or 15 minutes with no problem!”
    “30 minutes? Well, I can do that with some effort. It won’t be too hard, but not exactly easy either…”
    “60 minutes? There is no way I could do this for an hour. I am glad it is only 30 minutes…”
    TiaG:
    three or four long blocks of pretty steep ascent, followed by run back down.
    Keeping a steady state heart rate with hills is tough, because you have to run down the hill so much faster to keep the same heart rate that you had running up! If your heart rate spikes and drops too much, you will increase the release of liver glycogen to fuel the run, which won’t be as effective for the long nighttime lowering of BG that you are looking for.
    Another alternative would be a stationary bike or treadmill. Are you in the Bay Area? There are some nice flats in Golden Gate Park. Also along the Embarcadero and Fisherman’s Wharf are flat. And my favorite place to run in San Francisco is across Golden Gate bridge which is also relatively flat.
    Long winded answer, so my quick summary:
    steady state run, moderate intensity, before dinner
    Side note: One thing that diabetics can do better than the “non’s”, is gauge whether their exercise is fat or muscle glycogen fueled, because they can look at their BG results for the hours following the exercise. For the non’s, they don’t know how their body is adjusting insulin, or what it is doing to restore muscle glycogen, or how much liver glycogen they are dumping out.
    TiaG:
    And then there are all these hacks that seem pointless. A lot of women suggest things like “test at 10 hours instead of 8 and your number will be golden” – but that seems silly given that it is not actually changing your overnight fasting numbers,

    Another side note. That cracked me up! I mean, that’s like me saying, “If I never test my BG, I am never low or high!”

  3. Sam

    Bear in mind that safe exercise levels are probably less for a pregnant lady than for other cases… maybe just brisk walking, pool aerobics, or something would be best option. I’d discuss with her OB what safe and prudent exercise levels would be like for her. I know shellys doc didn’t want her pushing her heart rate over 140 while pregnant… running of any fashion definitely does that for me…

    That said, I am still really surprised if her doctors are expressing any concern whatsoever based on the blood sugar readings she’s reported here… they sound perfect to me. But exercise is good nonetheless

    How Low Can Your Blood Glucose Level Go Safely?

    Low blood sugar can result in weakness, confusion, headache, irritability, excessive hunger, excessive sweating or fatigue.
    The normal range of blood sugar is 80 - 120 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter) in the morning (after fasting for at least 8 hours). Normally, if the level drops below 70 mg/dL, the person is said to suffer from hypoglycemia or low blood sugar levels.
    You may experience trembling and if your blood sugar still drops down, you could have a seizure. Increasing glucose intake, like drinking fruit juice, can help raise your blood glucose.
    http://www.buzzle.com/articles/low-blood-suga...
    The ideal blood glucose levels range for you may be different from another person's and the level of glucose in blood would keep on changing throughout the day.
    Similarly, the point at which the severe effects of insufficient blood sugar would be experienced may vary from person to person.
    For some, sugar level below 70 mg/dL can be hypoglycemic, while for others the 'trigger point' can be at 60 mg/dL.
    So, you need to consult your doctor about how much of blood sugar should be running, to keep you safe. He will tell you what blood sugar range is normal for you.

    Lows are extremely dangerous, people who continue to go low often quit getting the warning signs. That is right your system will quit warning you until you like a light switch go into seizures and coma. One of my best friends has experienced this two times because he quit getting warnings. Had his wife not found him this last time when she did he would be dead. They sent him to a large hospital by lifeflight because the local hospital didn't have the specialists needed to save his life. It takes a few months of regular blood glucose numbers to reset your warning system if you have caused it to lower or go away totaly. Yes some people feel it at different times because they have lowered their body thermostat warning system lower by continually going to low. This information come from a book written by a diabetes specialists name Dr Bernstein ( Diabetes Solution ).
    Just be very careful, don't play roulette with low blood glucose it can be as deadly as a gun.

    My lowest low was 29, a couple months ago, while I was asleep. I only woke up because I had to go to the bathroom, and I figured I should check my blood sugar because I was pretty dizzy. Last night, I had a low of 39. I almost never feel lows until I'm in the 50's or 40's. My doc is concerned about nighttime hypoglycemia because my A1Cs are always lower than what they should be, considering my highs. I've only been diagnosed with type 1 for 2 1/2 years, but I stopped feeling symptoms of highs and lows around 6 months in, so at this point I'm fundraising for a diabetic alert dog.
