Do you mean to say 7.2mg/dl ot some other units of measurement? Is this sugar level or HbA1C levels? If this is sugar lveles in mg/dl, then it is low. If it is HbA1C levels, the is it raised. And it needs proper sugar control.

I think it is not blood sugar. But it is Hba1c level. It is just above normal. You also need to mention your fasting blood glucose to understand your control of blood glucose.

I am a 72 year old male. Type 2 diabetic for over 3 years. Take Humalog for 1 1/2 year. Had major heart attack last Oct. Misplaced my insulin in car about 3 weeks ago (so have not been taking my sugar level). Decided after eatting that I should find my kit and take it. Took a little more than an hour to take it. Tested at 454. Took 19 units of humalog. After another hour sugar had dropped to 385. Should I just continue taking insulin and get my sugar back under control. Or do I need to go to the ER?

Dear Sir,

My mother has been suffering from Kidney disease. She never had any problem with BP or Blood Sugar but he has been declared to have bilateral renal parenchyma disease since 2005.

She is taking a calculated diet limiting the salt content in the food to 3 gm/day. The recent blood test conducted (2 months back) has reported bad results and the details are listed below:-

Creatinine - 7.5

Hemoglobin - 8.1

Blood Sugar (Fasting) 88 mg/DL

Urea - 150

Sodium - 131

Potassium - 4.2



What should be the next step? Is kidney transplantation the only choice? When/where should it be done? Is it getting very worse or we still have some time to go for the transplantation?

Please help.

Thanks, Kunal

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
