I have anxiety I started worrying about my blood sugar
Patient :I have anxiety. I started worrying about my blood sugar. I got a tester and yesterday after eating it was 95. This morning I tested fasting and it was 96. I drink one cup of coffee and drink ensure plus each morning. I tested it after that and it was 164. Should I be worried?
Thank you for writing to us.
Your fasting blood sugar being at 96 is normal. The fasting level should be less than 110 to 120 depending on the test used.
Also, if you got the second test done after having the coffee. This will cause an increase in the sugar levels. This can also be called post meal blood sugar. If the test was done in less than 2 hours of having the coffee and the Ensure plus. If the test was done in less than 2 hours, then the test will have to repeated.
If the test was done after 2 hours, please talk to a Doctor and get checked and talk about treatment for the Diabetes.
Do follow up with comments and I will help you. All the best.
