Is 133 high for a fasting gluclose insulin level?

Boarderline, depends upon if you are already diabetic.

The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) recommends the following general blood glucose testing goals for adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes:

Preprandial* (fasting, or before a meal) - <110 mg/dl (6.1 mmol/l)

Two hours postprandial (after the start of a meal) - <140 mg/dl (7.8 mmol/l)

A1c (three month blood glucose average) – 6.5% or lower

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) suggests slightly different targets:
Preprandial* – 90-130 mg/dl (5.0-7.2 mmol/l)

Postprandial* (1-2 hours) - <180 mg/dl (<10.0 mmol/l)

A1c (three month blood glucose average) – 7.0% or lower

These goals aren’t for everyone, and your personal testing targets may run higher or lower. Your diabetes care team will work with you to determine self-testing blood glucose goals based on your individual medical history and lifestyle requirements.

*Note: Measurements are for blood plasma; whole blood values would be approximately 15% lower.

(it depends upon the person as neither myself nor my son fall into the "normal" ranges of testing. With close mentoring and a trustworthy Diabetic educator you can find the target that will work best for you)
Blessings and good luck!

yes especially for fasting.

yes that's high

Maybe just a touch? My husband is diabetic and his doctor wants his morning blood sugar (which would be the closest to compare to fasting) to remain between 80 and 120.

If you are diabetic, it can be normal. you should check this with a doctor.

yes, that is a bit high. should be 70 to 100, depending on how you feel.

yes it should be under 100

Gee...I wish I was that under control...it depends, though....

Are you classified as diabetic? If not, then that reading is moderately high. But you really need an average of your fasting sugars.

You may now buy your own A1c blood test at the pharmacy and get your own average readings, usually cheaper than a doctor and lab visit. I recommend this.

I am a Type II diabetic and on two oral medications and diet monitoring to control my blood glucose levels.

Yes 121 is borderline high.

click my profile to check out my ?????

if it is true fasting with nothing to eat for the last 8 hours yes it is.

Try mangosteen juice to help control your blood sugar levels. Go to www.GoXanthones and listen to Dr. John Edwards on Diabetes. He has been using mangosteen to treat his patients with much success and there are no contra indications to any drugs that may have been prescribed
To obtain mangosteen go to www.mangosteendiscovery.com and order right from the site. Fully patented and tastes great. I use it everyday and my blood sugar levels have never been better.

120 is the norm but 133 is nothing to be concerned about.

yes thats a little to high
you need your reading to be 120
anything over that is a bit to high

Blood glucose Fasting blood glucose:
70–99 milligrams per deciliter or less than 5.5 mmol/L

2 hours after eating (postprandial):
70–145 mg/dL (less than 7.9 mmol/L)

Random (casual):
70–125 mg/dL (less than 7.0 mmol/L)

Normal results may vary from lab to lab. Many conditions can change your blood glucose levels. Your health professional will discuss any significant abnormal results with you in relation to your symptoms and medical history.

Nurse Annie
A fasting blood glucose should be 70-99 milligrams per deciliter so yours is a bit high.
