Glucose levels, commonly referred to as “blood sugar,” are an important part of blood sugar management. Diabetes from disease victims. However, there are some gaps in understanding optimal blood sugar levels.
Indeed, glucose levels have different degrees of interpretation in different individuals, so they must be constantly discussed with the doctors responsible for the treatment of diabetes. In addition, it is important that the patient constantly measures his blood sugar.
What are the ideal levels?
However, a study by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) UKpointed out that the ideal blood sugar levels to be agreed between doctors and patients should fall within a range, also depending on the type of diabetes the patient has.
When measuring blood sugar, using a glucometer, the sugar level of a non-diabetic person should be between 4 and 5.9 mmol/litre of blood before meals. For adults with type 2 diabetes, as well as adults and children with type 1 diabeteslevels should be between 4 and 7 mmol/L.
After 90 minutes or more of a meal, readings should be below 7.8 mmol/L for non-diabetics and below 8.5 mmol/L for people with type 2 diabetes. For adults and children with type 1 diabetes, blood sugar should be between 5 and 9 mmol/L.
Diseases caused by blood sugar
In addition to diabetes, controlling blood sugar is also helpful in preventing problems such as kidney diseaseretinal and cardiac, in addition to nerve damage and strokes.
The list of diseases linked to high blood sugar is even longer, however, controlling blood sugar is an important ally in preventing these conditions. And this can happen with subtle changes in diet, such as eating fruits and their juices in kind, for example.
