Why Fasting Sugar is More Than PP Sugar?.. Kindly Advise.. Thank You

Good Day Everyone,

I am 27yrs Old.

On 04/04/2017 I checked my Blood Sugar, Readings were:

Fasting - 98mg/dl > (Hexokinase Method)

PP - 107mg/dl > (Hexokinase Method)

HbA1c - 6 > (HPCL Method)

As Per Doctor Prdiabetic ....

Weight - 97Kgs

BMI - 34.37 Obese Class 1

14/07/2017 - I took another Test and Results are as follows.

Fasting - 106mg/dl > Before Testing, I had Tomato Chutney(1 Plate) & Jowar Roti(1)..> (Hexokinase Method)

PP - 85.6mg/dl > I ate 2 Plates of Idli & Meduvada(8 Each)...> (Hexokinase Method)

HbA1c - 5.6 > (HPCL Method)

Weight - 73 Kgs

BMI - 25.86 Overweight by 3kg

Before Testing, I had Tomato Chutney(1 Plate) & Jowar Roti(1)

....... After Results I asked Lab Doctor , If the report is right or not ? , He said , fasting Readings sometimes comes higher than PP.

So, Why is this happening...

Is it Normal or Am I in Srious Trouble?

I want to reverse Prediabetise and go back to normal.. but after 3 months , This results have not came as I was expecting...

Waiting For Your Replies...

Thank You .....

I did water only Fast for 20days and then Continued With Intermittent Fasting 20:4 for weight loss .. in which 20hrs is fasting state nd 4 hrs feasting ... 10kms Running everyday in intermittent fasting , 1.5 hrs brisk walk everyday... had low sugar diet throughout the period..

so lost, so much weight ..

I have not been on job for last 3.5 months so was doing this only...

Send me your WhatsApp number I ll share what I did for weight loss ...

People wont believe but Intermittent fasting works for weight loss, it worked for me...

My only problem is why my fasting glucose is higher than PP.

I was just on borderline so doctor advised me to lose weight and change diet , I did it but results are reversed. PP has dropped but fasting in increased.

I am not taking any medicines.

hope this have cleared your doubts.

thank you for reply.

Yes. Fasting is high as your liver needs some cleaning

Regarding blood sugar levels, if a patient is diabetic and if she is on oral medication for diabetes, the sugar levels can be as have you stated.(fasting blood sugar level more than the post prandial blood sugar).

If the patient is not a diabetic, as soon as she takes the breakfast, it will act as a stimulant to produce insulin in the body and that will bring down the post prandial blood sugar level (PP).

Another scenario for increase in sugar after empty stomach will be because of the hormone called glucagon, which will induce glycogenolysis and neoglucogenesis in the body when the sugar levels are very low.

In this mechanism, the stored glycogen or lipids will be converted into glucose, thus increasing the blood sugar level.

The dawn phenomenon, sometimes called the dawn effect, is an early-morning (usually between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m.) increase in blood sugar (glucose) relevant to people with diabetes. The dawn phenomenon can be managed in many patients by avoiding carbohydrate intake at bedtime. You need not worry about this glucose fluctuation.

Hi Amitnikam,

1. your test results are OK. and first stop worrying. You are perfect. Be positive. There are many who have many problems. You are far better than all those.

2. Kudos to your determination and reducing the wieght so effectively. But do not do so muach harsh regime to reduce any further. Now you are crossed the danger level, so go slow on reducing the weight further. Or maintain it.

3. Regarding the testing with Accuchek. PLease note it is very sensitive to your hand/ or the st location. It should be thoroughly washed, cleaned with clean and ry cloth or best thinng is with paper tissue. do not touch anything with that finger till your test completed. even a finest spek of interference would give incorrect results. So, they should be taken as guidence only. though could be as acurate as Lab tset, if done correctly with care.

4. Fasting test means from night Dinner to next day morning by the time you test AT LEAST 12 hours should be maintained. you can only take water in between, or any vitamin medication, if you are taking any. but NO OTHER food or any.
