Unlike daily blood glucose test results, which are reported as mg/dL, A1C is reported as a percentage. This can make it difficult to understand the relationship between the two. For example, if you check blood glucose 100 times in a month, and your average result is 190 mg/dL this would lead to an A1C of approximately 8.2%, which is above the target of 7% or lower recommended by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for many adults who are not pregnant. For some people, a tighter goal of 6.5% may be appropriate, and for others, a less stringent goal such as 8% may be better.1 Talk to your doctor about the right goal for you.

You might be aware that as a metabolic disorder, some forms of diabetes come with excessive weight. But diabetes might also cause a sudden drop in weight too. In fact, many patients who are ultimately diagnosed with diabetes first go to their doctor with concerns about unexplained weight loss. Several mechanisms are behind this symptom. Weight loss can occur as a consequence of high blood sugar, dehydration, muscle breakdown and problems with your thyroid.

The relationship between A1c values and average blood sugar levels can also vary markedly from person to person. In studies using continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), 24/7 blood sugar levels can be compared to a measured A1c. These studies reveal considerable variation from person to person. For instance, an 8% A1c value in one person could reflect an average blood sugar of 140 mg/dl, while in another it could be 220 mg/dl. This variation relates to individual differences in how red blood cells and blood sugars bind or the lifespan of red blood cells.


The signs and symptoms for high blood sugar are the same for both type 1 and type 2. Signs usually show up quicker in those who have type 1 because of the nature of their diabetes. Type 1 is an autoimmune disease that causes the body to stop making insulin altogether. Type 2 is caused by lifestyle factors when the body eventually stops responding to insulin, which causes the sugar to increase slowly. People with type 2 can live longer without any symptoms creeping because their body is still making enough insulin to help control it a little bit.
“I found out about my prediabetes two years ago when I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which puts me at greater risk for diabetes,” said Regan White, 33, of Charlotte. “I knew I was having some kind of blood sugar and hormone issues because I was extremely dizzy all the time – especially before and after eating.” Her fasting glucose was right on the borderline at 100 mg/dl, and her A1C was 6 percent – all indicators of insulin resistance and prediabetes.

Never avoid going to see your health care team because you feel like a “failure” or are afraid of disappointing your diabetes care team.  The members of your diabetes team are your coaches. They understand there are multiple life challenges that influence diabetes each day and night. Life is always changing, and you/your child will need support along the way.  It is all part of the process of living with diabetes.
Insulin acts a key that unlocks the door to let glucose in to feed our cells. When insulin is present, it also turns off the process of using glycogen from the liver to ensure that the glucose level does not rise further after a meal. In fact, insulin reduces blood glucose by collecting any excess glucose that is present in the blood stream so that it can be stored as glycogen for future use.

L-glutamine, an amino acid needed in large amounts by your body, has been shown to help build lean muscle by suppressing insulin levels and stabilizing blood sugar. One study found that supplementing with L-Glutamine for six weeks improved body composition in patients with type 2 diabetes. L-glutamine has also been shown to help heal a leaky gut, which is important for digestive health and immunity. In addition to supplements, you can find L-glutamine in foods such as bone broth, grass-fed beef, cottage cheese, spirulina, asparagus, broccoli rabe, salmon, and turkey.

Gestational diabetes is a condition that is first recognized during pregnancy and is characterized by high blood sugar. Approximately 4% of all pregnancies are diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Low blood sugar is prevented by hormones produced by the placenta during a woman's pregnancy. The actions of insulin are stopped by these hormones. Gestational diabetes is the result of the pancreas' inability to produce enough insulin to overcome the effect of the increase hormones during pregnancy.

What are the symptoms of prediabetes? People typically do not have symptoms of prediabetes, which is partially why up to 90% of people don’t know they have it. The ADA reports that some people with prediabetes may develop symptoms of type 2 diabetes, though even many people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes show little or no symptoms initially at diagnosis.
Since prediabetes is the precursor for diabetes mellitus, the pathophysiology is relatable. Hyperglycemia will cause production and release of insulin by the pancreatic beta cells. Excess insulin exposure for long periods of time diminishes the reponse of the insulin receptors the function of which is to open glucose channels leading to entry of glucose into the cells. Decreased function of the insulin receptors leads to further hyperglycemia further perpetuating the metabolic disturbance and leading to the development of not only diabetes type 2 but also metabolic syndrome. In prediabetes, this process is not to the extent of diabetes mellitus but is a first step in a metabolic cascade which has potentially dangerous consequences if not adequately addressed. Hence its imperative to start treatment at the earliest. [7] If treatment is not started or if the treatment is not adequate, adverse effects on large and small blood vessels (e.g. arteries of the cardiovascular system or retina, kidney, and nerves) may occure.

You need to take your medicine, but sometimes, meds for the other things that ail you can raise your blood sugar. We’ve got a list of them here. If you take one or more of these, talk to your doctor about alternative meds that could control your other conditions without affecting your blood sugar. Remember that everyone is different. Just because you take a medication on the list doesn’t mean that it raises your blood sugar—or, if it does, that it raises it enough to worry about. If your doctor says it’s safe to do so, you can stop taking a suspect med for a few days, carefully monitor your blood sugar, and see if it improves. If you want to be a proper scientist, you should then re-start the med to see if the sugar goes up again. And don’t try this at home! Do it only under your doc’s guidance.
