A Simple Way To Estimate Mean Plasma Glucose And To Identify Type 2 Diabetic Subjects With Poor Glycaemic Control When A Standardized Hba1c Assay Is Not Available.

Department of Internal Medicine and Department of Endocrinology, Dicle University School of Medicine, Diyarbakir, Turkey. [email protected] AIMS: To evaluate the relationship between HbA(1c) and fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and postprandial plasma glucose (PPG) levels, and to estimate the mean plasma glucose (mPG) derived from FPG and PPG that would predict Type 2 diabetic subjects with poor glycaemic control. METHODS: FPG, PPG and HbA(1c) values from 565 Type 2 diabetic patients (247 men and 318 women) were recorded. Linear regression analysis and Pearson's correlation was used to determine the relationship between HbA(1c), FPG and PPG. FPG and PPG were included as explanatory variables of HbA(1c) in linear regression analysis. RESULTS: The American Diabetes Association's objective of achieving an HbA(1c) level < 7.0% was obtained in 26.2% of the patients. The coefficients of FPG and PPG which determined HbA(1c) were similar. Therefore, mPG was calculated using the equation (FPG + PPG)/2. Pearson's correlation coefficient for HbA(1c) and FPG, PPG and mPG were 0.723 (P < 0.0001), 0.734 and 0.761 (P < 0.0001), respectively. A mPG cut-off value of 10 mmol/l predicted an HbA Continue reading >>

    I took my son into the doctor's office today because he was seeing double. When they tested his blood sugar, it was 201. The doctor said this was pretty high. They are having me monitor him over the weekend and gather data while we wait for blood test results. At 3pm, he was 156 and before bed, he was 100. I can't seem to find any reliable data on what is normal range and what is out of range. I'm frustrated. Is it different then adult normal ranges? Can anyone help? Thank you!

    Unfortunately those numbers are a bit high. Normal can vary for lots of reasons but is somewhere in the range of 70 to 135 with it typically being under 100.
    So that's the bad news, the good news, if there is any, is you've noticed something not quite right before you started seeing numbers much higher than that.

The 156 is on the high side, the 201 is very high.
    Stay in touch with your doctor to figure out what is causing this.
