 Glucose, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, Hep B, and more

  Glucose

                                                                   After you eat your glucose level is elevated. Glucose levels are controlled by insulin                                                                          and glucagon.   Before you eat, the level is low. Once you have eaten, and the                                                                                   glucose  level rises, your insulin is secreted. This makes the glucose go into the cells to                                                                     be metabolized to glycogen, amino acids, and fatty acids. By testing this, it will give

                                                                   your care giver a guide to your body’s handling                                                                                                                                                 your glucose level. If it is elevated or abnormal ,                                                                                                                                               your care giver might talk with you about doing                                                                             a 3 hour glucose tolerance test. It will give him/her more information about how                                                                               your body is handling and processing glucose.
