I had a fasting blood test for diabetes and it read that I had only a fasting blood sugar level of 80. Could I still have diabetes and the blood sugar was only that low because I hadn t ate in 24 hours?
fasting blood sugar alone misses 30 % of diabetics . better do a 2 hr post prandial sugar for many months or years many have post prandial hyperglycemia before they become overt diabetic . if in doubt do HBA1c . more than 125 fasting means you have Dm . between 100 to 126 y r a prediabetic .
post prandial if less than 140 u r not a diabetic and if more than 140 and less than 200 mg u r a prediabetic and anytime if more than 200 mg u r diabetic . so dont confuse urself . check ur ppbs
Hi... Yes your low sugars may be because you were fasting for 24hrs... The features of diabetes are increased thirst, increased in the frequency of passing urine... If you such symptoms then diabtes is a possibilty..... You can confirm this by repeating the test done.
Hi well come to HCM
To diagnose Diabetes GTT[glucose tolerance test gives better idea even in border line or prodiabetic pt.In mild case symptoms may or may not be there or may not be appreciable by Pt. Even Hba1c will not give much idea,because it can give the control
of last 60 to 90 days.In Gtt one must remember that three days prior to test person
must take his routine diet without any restriction. Thanks
I get a headache every time I eat fruit . Could I be diabetic? This is a fairly new thing. I have struggled with headaches my whole life but never been able to figure out what they are connected to. A website made me think I could be hypoglycemic because I also struggle with depression, insomnia, and low energy. But all this could also be related to stress. How can I find out? Is there a blood test?
I m very angry with my doctor. He supposedly tested me for potassium, but then came back and said I am pre-diabetic. Was the diabetic test on the same panel that he could find this out? Then, last year, without a blood test, he said that I was FULLY DIABETIC, NOT PRE-DIABETIC. How could he make that assumption without a blood test? Any help you can give me?
my husband was diagnosed with hemochromotosis in June 2013, after 8 hospital stays and numerous test he now has liver failure, diabetes and stage D heart failure.

My father s pancreas has shut down, and he was told that especially with his diabetes, that his kidneys are soon to follow. I was looking online the other day and found some sort of implant that can be put in now, that has helped 50% of those who tried it, from developing full kidney failure, but now I can not find the name of the implant so that we can talk to his doctor about it. Can anyone tell me the name of this? It was like 3 or 4 letters long...
