Are The Uric Acid, Cholesterol And Sugar Checks Made With Finger Pricks Accurately?
, what is the normal levels of uric acid, cholesterol and sugar for men over 40 years?
Hello UiKiang, thank you for asking.
The limit values for lipid profiles, blood glucose, and uric acid for adults, depend on the provisions used in each laboratory. Generally between laboratories there is not much difference. Someone said to have normal uric acid levels if the value is <6 mg / dL. Generally values above 7 mg / dL say that the person has hyperuricemia.
Values for lipid and glucose profiles are not that simple. You must mention, what type of examination you are referring to. Lipid profile consists of total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, and triglycerides. Blood glucose consists of glucose during, fasting, and 2 hours after eating.
Normal total cholesterol values <200 mg / dL, triglycerides <150 mg / dL, LDL <70 mg / dL, and HDL> 40 mg / dL.
Normal glucose values are 126-140 mg / dL, fasting glucose 100-125 mg / dL, and glucose 2 hours after eating no more than 200 mg / dL.
The method of rapid detection with fingertip blood samples, is quite accurate, as long as the tool is in good condition and performed with the right procedure. Generally the results do not differ too greatly from the results of the examination in the laboratory.
For this information from me. May be useful. Regards.
