It still has not improved. So I would advise it be controlled better with medications. Anything above 200 is not safe and should be controlled within that range.

I have just had a blood test for a study I am doing for Vitamin B12. There are three areas that I am out of the normal range, - glucose, urea and cholesterol. I kind of know about cholesterol, but what can I do/eat to reduce my glucose and urea? Cheers Julie Stapleton

Hi Dr, my Dr did a blood glucose on me in our general hospital, FPG result 5.7 and 2 hrs later OGTT result 3.7. Well he claim that I vomited, which was not the case neither did drink any water during the 2 hrs. Then send me for second test, 2 weeks later , again FPG 5.6 and OGTT 3.2. He is puzzled and cannot give any answer , just brushing off the question by saying at least we know you are not diabetic. My question is why my glucose level drop so much after consuming the glucose? Thank you.

I m wondering if I have diabetes already. My usual food intake only consists of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and cereals. I don t eat rice and I m on fasting right now so I also don t eat meat.

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
