diabetes?

i went to doc 2 weeks ago and had a complete blood test. my blood glucose was at 110 so she was a bit concerned. I dont have diabetes and that is the highest its ever been. so i check with an at home monitor. It usually checks 95-107 but today when i woke up it was 137 OMG.
could i have diabetes, can it spike that much in one day . so worried

Over the past couple years its been in the 90's

Could it go up that much in one day

I did fast for 8 hours also

Re: diabetes?

1 measurement doesn't mean you have diabetes. The next time you see your doctor ask for an A1C blood test which is more reliable because it checks your body for average blood sugar level in your body for 2-3 months. They had my wife have that when she had a glucose test of 120 and the A1C came back normal.

Re: diabetes?

Thanks for your reply, I had my a1c checked 6 months ago and all good. Should I get it checked again?

Re: diabetes?

Only if you are still worried. If you take your blood glucose again and it is under 120 I really don't think it is necessary unless it would make you feel better.

Re: diabetes?

If you have a home meter, the best time for you to test will be 1 hour and 2 hours after you have eaten a carby meal. Fasting numbers are often the last to go, so post prandial (after meals) will give you a good idea of how your body handles carbs. Ideally you want to be below 140 at the 2 hour mark.
