Can Blood Sugar Drop To 100 Mg / Dl Within A Day?
Greetings, I want to ask, my brother checked his blood sugar, and the result was 588 mg / dl but my brother looked like he was still healthy, he could still walk, etc., and because he didn’t believe it, the next day my brother checked his blood sugar again and the result was 411 mg / dl. Can blood sugar drop to 100 mg / dl more without medication within 1 day? Is the tool inaccurate / damaged huh? N
Hi Abdi, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
A person's blood sugar can fluctuate quite high in 1 day depending on when the test is done. For example, if the examination is carried out after eating, the results of the examination obtained can be quite high, but if the examination is carried out after fasting, the results may be quite low. The type of food you eat can affect these daily blood sugar fluctuations. For example, if someone checks after eating foods that contain sugar or simple carbohydrates, their blood sugar can increase quickly after eating, while people who consume more complex carbohydrates (such as high-fiber fruit), their blood sugar tends to increase more slowly and be more stable. However, in normal people, blood sugar will not increase to more than 200 mg / dL even after the test is done after eating.
The condition of the results of your sibling's blood sugar examination which fell more than 100 mg / dl in 1 day is indeed possible. Seeing that blood sugar is already so high, you should advise your siblings to immediately see a doctor. Allowing blood sugar to continue to be high can cause various health problems such as disorders of the eyes, kidneys, peripheral nerves, the immune system, and causes damage to blood vessels throughout the body and increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and other blood vessel-related diseases.
