Blood Sugar Testing

Blood Sugar Testing

Blood sugar testing is important for Diabetics because their bodies do not process
blood sugars properly. Since a Diabetic cannot break down sugar
molecules, the sugar cannot be absorbed by the muscles and organs and
stored for later use as energy. Learn more about sugar molecules interactively.

High blood sugar levels can also lead to a multitude of complications, including hypertension, eye problems and poor circulation.

In order to avoid the complications associated with Diabetes
disease, glucose control is essential. Glucose control can be achieved
through nutrition, exercise and medication.

Tests used to measure the blood sugar levels:

The A1C test (pronounced A-one-C) reflects your average blood glucose level over the last 3 months.
It is the best way to know if your overall glucose control program is
working for you. This test used to be called hemoglobin A-1-C
(pronounced he-mo-glow-bin A-one-C) or H-b-A-1-C.

Blood Glucose Test

Proper glucose control can be accomplished by testing blood sugar levels several times daily using a meter. The ideal blood glucose levels are as follows:

Normal blood glucose levels (measured in mg/dL)

Morning (before breakfast)

70-110

After meals

70-140

Target blood glucose levels for Diabetics

Morning (before breakfast)

90-130

1-2 hours after a meal

Less than 180

Low blood sugar

70 or below
