Fasting Blood Sugar Examination Results And 2 Hours Pp?
Doctor, is it possible to check GDP and blood sugar after eating 2 hours the results are far? For example: gdp 134 results, then eat and 2 hours later check again the results are only 118? If possible, why can fasting blood sugar be higher than after eating? R nIs the expired blood sugar test strip still accurate?
Fasting blood sugar levels are normally between 70-130 mg / dl. Blood sugar increases after a meal because glucose is absorbed from food. Glucose levels will increase after eating, the body will stimulate the release of the hormone insulin to utilize blood glucose into body cells for metabolism to produce energy. It is expected that at 2 hours post prandial (after eating) blood sugar will return to basal glucose level, the recommended level is below 180 mg / dL.
There are some cases where glucose levels of 2 hours pp are lower than fasting blood sugar in healthy people. This can be found in hypersensitivity from insulin, impaired insulin counterregulation mechanism, underweight people, and people who have just lost weight. This can also be caused by the examination of pure sugar used (stimulates the working of insulin is higher), while in real life the food eaten contains other nutrients so that sugar absorption will be slower so that the sugar level 2 hours after eating is not lower than fasting blood sugar. As long as it doesn't cause any symptoms (asymptomatic), incidental findings like this are nothing to worry about. Abnormalities such as post prandial reactive hypoglycemia (blood sugar after meals become dramatically below normal) usually give typical signs of hypoglycemia such as weakness, dizziness, sweaty hands, palpitations, palpitations. If you experience signs of hypoglycemia, you can do first aid by drinking a solution of sugar or sweet foods and then immediately consult a doctor.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
