Glucose Test? What to Expect?

It was not that bad the first time. I drank mine on ice and with a straw so I did not taste all that much of it. Just hope you pass the 1 hour. Good luck. Lucky you. Wish I could have started at home :)

Is the level of Glucose in Urine the same as the level of Glucose in the Blood, in terms of Glucose testing?

Do you mean trend urine glucose for insulin instead of blood glucose? Blood glucose is far more precise for testing. Glucose does not occur in the urine until the renal threshold has been reached which, while a bit different for everyone, varies with age, renal function, illness and other factors. Usually the blood level is moderately to low-hi elevated before the urine turns positive.

The Ins and Outs of Blood Glucose Testing Equipment

Q: I keep my blood glucose meter and testing strips in my car between patients. Will that impact the reliability or accuracy of the glucose measurements I obtain on my patients? Blood glucose measurement equipment has come a long way over the years. The utility of these devices has improved and so has the accuracy. However, improper storage or use can lead to inaccurate blood glucose results. To prevent this, there are a few things to keep in mind regarding safe storage and handling of blood glucose measurement equipment. As with any medical device, it is important to follow the manufacturer's recommendations to assure the glucose strips and meter continue to work properly. One of the most frequent reasons for errors in glucose readings has to do with how you handle the strips. For example, Bamberg et al. Because the outside temperature varies considerably by season and geographic location, store your equipment (meter, strips, and control solution) in the carrying case in a cool, dry place with a temperature no more than 86 [degrees]F. Also choose a place that protects the equipment from humidity, dust, and dirt. If your meter is accidently exposed to a contaminate, most manufacturers recommend that you clean the outside of the meter with mild soap and water on a soft cloth. Following these recommendations will prevent damage to the equipment that may lead to erroneous results. If you receive a blood glucose result that you do not expect or the patient cannot explain, there are a few things the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (2015) recommends that you check first: * Perform a system check to make sure the equipment is working properly. When you turn the equipment on, it automatically completes a system check. When a problem is detected an error code is displayed on the screen. If you receive an error code, refer to the user's manual to identify the meaning of the code and to determine how to correct the problem. * You can also perform a check on the system by using control solution. To perform the check, simply use a small drop of control solution in place of blood. Use this opportunity to teach your patient how to use control solution as well. Most manufacturers recommend using control solution whenever you open a new vial of strips, if you suspect there is a problem with the equipment, or if you receive results that are higher or lower than expected. * Compare the results from your meter with a laboratory result. When the machine is working properly and correct testing technique is followed, the results from your device should be close to the laboratory's result. Most devices have a toll-free number on the back of the device that you can call for assistance. Because improper testing technique can also lead to erroneous results, it is a good idea to periodically review blood glucose testing technique with your patients as well. The expiration date is located on vial label. Many manufacturers recommend discarding an open vial after 3 months; refer to the instructions that accompany the vial to determine the appropriate discard date. If your patient has difficulty obtaining an adequate sample, suggest warming the hands first under water and then hang the hand down while gentle squeezing the blood down to the tip of one finger. * Some meters provide an option for alternative site testing, such as the palm of the hand or the forearm. Remember, blood glucose can change quickly and these rapid changes are picked up in the finger tips before alternative sites. * Do not hesitate to question results that are not consistent with physical symptoms. Finally, to protect yourself and your patients from exposure to bloodborne pathogens, remember to wash your hands and wear gloves before obtaining a blood glucose sample from your patient. You should also follow the manufacturer's recommendation for cleaning the surface of the meter between patients and use disposable, single-use lancing devices. If your patient experiences a serious adverse event that may be associated with glucose monitoring equipment, both patients and healthcare professionals are encouraged to report the event to the manufacturer. .

CHEMISTRY CALIORIMETERY QUESTION!! Please Help :)?
CHEMISTRY CALIORIMETERY QUESTION!! please help :)?energy = ampere x time (sec) x voltage inamp = 0.1 x 10 x 60 x 15 = 900 joules. 8.72 degrees rise is given by 900 joules. one degree rise will be given by 900/8.72 joules =103.2 joules. This is specific heat of the calorimeter. To raise the temperature of the calorimeter by 10 degree it requires 1032 joules of heat. four grams glucose when burned gives 1032 joules of heat. this is the heat of combustion of four grams of glucose. The molecular weight of glucose is 180 grams. So when 180 grams of glucose is burned it gives 180 x 1032/4 joules of heat . This works out to be 46440 joules. This is heat of combustion of glucose per mole. It is shown as deltaH = - 46440 joules per mole.— — — — — —What is glucose intolerance?It means you get nervous when some glucose molecules sit next to you on the bus.

When it is digested they are quickly absorbed from the intestine into the blood stream and carried to the liver. In the liver they are stored as glycogen for a constant back-up energy supply.— — — — — —am i becoming diabetic? or just paranoid?Unfortunately, your idea of finding "real glucose tolerance results" from what you do at home is nonsensical . unless you've found a way of giving yourself a measured amount of glucose . normally 75 grams . and then drawing your own blood, to be tested in a pathology laboratory. To be frank with you, you need to see your doctor, explain your symptoms to him/her, and s/he will determine whether or not you warrant further testing. I am afraid I do not know where you get the idea that you should be testing your blood glucose levels at one hour after you eat. This would be a pointless exercise in the home setting as the glucose level would still be high.) The fasting blood glucose levels for a non-diabetic would be in the range 70-99 mg/dL. In a non-diabetic, the post-prandial blood glucose level would not be expected to raise above 140 mg/dL. There are, however, times when this can occur, such as illness/infection, and times of extreme stress. Your fasting blood glucose level of 106 mg/dL indicates that you may now be pre-diabetic, but it MUST be a practising MD (Medical Doctor) to make an official diagnosis of this. I do hope that you will see your doctor to have yourself checked out. Be well.— — — — — —What to ExpectWhat to Expect during a PET Scan A small amount of radioactive glucose (a sugar) is injected into a vein. The PET scanner takes a picture of where glucose is being used in the brain. PET scanning utilizes a radioisotope tracer that is an analog to glucose, called fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG). FDG accumulates within malignant cells because of their high rate of glucose metabolism. Once injected with this agent, the patient is imaged on the whole body PET scanner to reveal malignant lesions which may have been overlooked or difficult to characterize by conventional CT scan, X-ray, or MRI. A PET scan can also give information about the flow of blood through the coronary arteries to the heart muscle. This nuclear scan offers a higher resolution and imaging speed and is becoming more widely available for cardiac imaging. PET scans use injected radioactive material to help visualize active areas of the brain. A PET scan can be used to find malignant tumor cells or diagnose conditions like epilepsy. A small amount of radioactive glucose (a sugar) is injected into a vein. The PET scanner rotates around the body and makes a picture of where glucose is being used in the brain. Malignant tumor cells show up brighter in the picture because they are more active and take up more glucose than normal cells do. After the radioactive material is injected into a vein, it will take 3-90 minutes for the substance to accumulate in the brain tissue. During this waiting period, the individual will be asked to rest quietly and not talk or move around much. The actual scan takes 30-45 minutes. The benefit of PET scans in cancer diagnosis Because disease is a biological process and PET is a biological imaging examination, PET can detect and stage most cancers, often before they are evident through other tests. Cancer cells show up brighter in the picture because they use more glucose than normal tissues. Clinical research data has proven that PET is superior to conventional imaging in the diagnosis, staging, and surveillance (restaging) of various types of cancers. Recently, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) expanded to include many more tumor types and reaffirmed its role in preexisting covered tumor types.
