glucose level... please post

Ok... so I had the LP on wed. Not all of the results had come back by friday but the neuro called with what they had. Said everything was normal "there is no growth" and that my glucose was alittle high (normal 40-70, mine was 77). Can someone elaborate for me on what this means? The protein hadn't come back yet... but he said I should expect to start Betaseron in a coiupld weeks. So so far... normal MRIs except 1 questionable spot in center that wasnt picked up on... and now a slightly high glucose in the CSF. Any ideas? Must go lay down... headache is coming back. Check in soon. Thanks

I wouldn't get very excited about it. normal sugar range for an non-diaetic is 70-110

Question Re: glucose level... please post

Hi,

So your fasting glucose level was low that is what was diagnosed and you thought it was MS.What kind of symptoms were you getting.I did not understand when you said that you need to start with a betason drug that is for diabetes or MS.
thanks,

Re: glucose level... please post

I am referring to glucose levels in spinal fluid. Glucose is an indication of inflammation apparently... normal levels are between 40-70, and mine was 77. Not extremly high, but still above "normal". this is what i found online...

The glucose levels should be between 50 to 80 mg/100 ml. Levels may vary slightly depending on the amount of glucose in the blood, however, the level in the CSF should be about 2/3 the level in the blood.

Note: mg/ml = milligrams per milliliter


What abnormal results mean:
Abnormal results include increased and decreased glucose levels. The finding of an abnormal glucose in the CSF is useful in diagnosing tumor, infection, inflammation, delirium, and other neurological and medical conditions.

anyways... not a big deal if mine was only 77. Thanks for the posts though.
