What is your blood sugar?
Important first step is to know your normal blood sugar level. We recommend you get a blood sugar test the next time you get a fasting blood check for cholesterol. Both tests can be done at the same time.
What does your blood sugar mean?
Normal blood sugar ranges from 60-90 milligrams of glucose per 100 milliliters of blood (mg/dl) before meal. High –normal blood sugar is defined as 100 to 125 (mg/dl) (full blown type 2 diabetes is diagnosed at 126 mg/dl and above).
The second step is to understand the Glycemic index (GI). This will tell you how fast something will turn to sugar in your body. Basically Higher Glycemic index=higher insulin levels=higher fat content. When you eat something that is low on the glycemic index the slower the sugars enter the blood stream and the less likely for you blood sugar will spike. Keep your insulin levels low your blood sugar balanced and you will notice that you feel better. It’s important to follow a smart eating plan, customize a physical activity routine and incorporate a soothing routine to relieve stress. Bonus: you will begin seeing your weight melt away. Your health will be Happy!
No question many blood sugar problems can be controlled through lifestyle changes in diet and exercise.
What is the reward in balancing your blood sugar? Happy overall health.
