Glucose is the amount of sugar in the blood stream. The human body creates insulin (a hormone from the pancreas) which allows sugars to be converted from food so that it can be consumed by the body. These sugars are stored, providing energy for the body to be use as the demands of the body require it.
Monitoring blood sugar levels is one of the most important things a person with diabetes can do to help prolong their life. Knowing what activities influence glucose levels; exercise, different types of food, and even medicine, can provide the necessary information to create a reasonable treatment plan with your doctor.
With the invent of modern testing methods, most diabetes monitoring is relatively simple. A glucose meter and strips are the primary method most individuals use. The external unit and strips require a droplet of blood to be extracted and placed on the strip. Once the strip is inserted into the meter, a reading can be retrieved in seconds. In the last couple of years, more patients are opting for a surgically attached meter which sends glucose levels directly to a smart phone. Your doctor should help you determine which type of meter is right for you.
According to the American Diabetes Association, the goal is to keep blood sugars less than 180mg/dL, 1-2 hours after the start of a meal, when most people’s glucose levels reach their peak. While blood sugar levels vary from person to person, your doctor can assist you to determining what it right for you.
Health complications can occur if blood sugars are not properly monitored. Diabetes is a serious disease that can lead to consequences for health and aging, primarily attacking the efficiency of internal organs. If left untreated, there are increased risks for heart disease and organ failure eventually leading to death.
The complications of increased blood sugars (hyperglycemia) are –
High sugar levels
High concentration of sugar in urine
Effective monitoring of blood sugars can make a significant difference in the quality of life for the diabetic. While every person’s body chemistry is different. Knowing the warning signs and understanding the importance of effective self-monitoring can help a person live their best life possible. As with any medical condition, your doctor should always be consulted regarding any glucose monitoring strategy.
