Hi Guys,
 
I am normally on the gerd website.  I had a glucose test (by accident, long story), that I wasn't supposed to have it because I did not do the 12 hour fast.  In fact I ate breakfast and lunch before this test.  The results came back as 124.  I just redid the test last week (and I fasted for at least 12 hours), now I am waiting for the test results.  Is this anything to be concerned about?
I have been diagnosed with a thyroid nodule, gastritis, gerd, gluten intolerance, and a gall bladder removal all in the past 4 years.  I don't think I can take one more negative diagnosis :(
 
Any thoughts?

So, the test last week ended up to be a random blood sugar test UNLESS the test was about 2 hours after you ate.  If this is so (blood test about 2 hours after eating), then it's called "post prandial" which is what diabetics do during the day after meals.  In any case, 124 might be ok, depending on what you ate and the amount of time since you had eaten.  A fasting blood sugar should be less than 100.   That's what a "non-diabetic" would have.  If your fasting is up to 125 (give or take), the doctor might warn you that the blood sugar is elevated.  So, you can't do much now while waiting.  In the meantime, you might want to look at the stickies at the top of the Diabetes forum (Testimonial and Diabetes Resources) for information.  Let us know how the test comes out, ok?  Good luck!yeah

Hi Lanie,
 
I was getting bloodwork done for thyroid levels and vitamin D.  So I ate before hand (since they aren't affected by eating) and told the gal at the lab that I would come back to do the 12 hour fasting glucose test soon.  There was a mix up between the front desk and the lab gal, so the bloodwork was sent in for the glucose.  Now Iam a little nervous??!

Was there a particular reason why they wanted a fasting blood sugar?

Hi Lanie,
 
They were just testing it  for an annual well-checkup that I get each year, along with the other tests.

Ok, then the "usual" battery of tests.  Don't stress out!  Nowadays, there's more concern about hidden diabetes and doctors want to make sure patients are not under the radar, if you follow what I mean.  Good luck with the next test anyway and don't worry.  :-)
