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. Your doctor can assist you to determine what is right for you.

For most individuals, a glucose reading under 70 mg/dL, is considered low blood sugar or hypoglycemia. When it is about 180 mg/dL, this is called high blood sugar or hyperglycemia.

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 symptoms of depressed sugars in the bloodstream (hypoglycemia) may vary from person to person. Initial symptoms usually include:

  • Hunger
  • Jittery feeling
  • Increased Anxiety
  • Pale skin
  • Fast or Irregular Heartbeat
  • Sleepiness
  • Dizzy
  • Mood changes toward Irritability

The complications of increased blood sugars (hyperglycemia) are –

  • High sugar levels
  • High concentration of sugar in the urine
  • Increased Thirst
