If You Don’t Control Your Glucose Level Now, You’ll Hate Yourself Later

About the Author - Kristina Ridley writes for the  
her personal hobby blog focused on healthy eating and tips to 
measure blood glucose levels at
home to help people understand early diabetes symptoms.

The pancreas is a body part which Type 2 diabetes affects. When we take in food,
the sugar in it turns into glucose then goes into the blood stream.
When it gets in blood cells, the pancreas lets loose insulin that allows our body to use up the glucose like fuel.
People who have a Type 2 diabetes condition will find it difficult to make as well as use insulin.
Your body contains plenty of glucose; however your cells are unable to find them.

An organization known as the American Diabetes Association is tasked with gathering information
about this critical medical condition.
America, with its 23.6 million people suffering from diabetes, is a very unhealthy country.
Around ninety percent of all its diabetics have the Type 2 condition.
A lot of diabetics are overweight, and it is not surprising to note that they also have relatives who are like this.
The internal organs (and one’s entire nervous system, too)
could end up with critical and lasting damage if you have an excess of glucose in you.

The Life of a Diabetic
If you have Type 2 diabetes, you need to live in a healthy manner.
Living healthy and engaging in healthy practices will affect you tremendously.
Two common examples of healthy routines include exercising and consuming healthy foods.
Making sure that your glucose levels stay in the recommended range translates into being able to
avoid complications in your health. 

A finger prick test is a common and reliable way to monitor your body’s blood glucose levels.

This test, according to physicians, is sufficient enough for glucose monitoring like the HbA1c test.
The amount of glycated hemoglobin in your blood is determined by this HbA1c test,
aside from it alerting you if you reach a high glucose level.
Results of these A1c tests show that people with diabetes are at a seven percent level.
The CDC reports that if one maintains their a1c levels at seven percent,
they could reduce the possibility of risks as high up as forty percent.

An Iron Grip Control
If your a1c levels are below this seven percent mark, studies indicate that this could result into something bad.
One particular study done in Lancet and Swedish Medical Center located in Seattle,
showed that there is a higher death risk for people who use insulin regularly and those who have a1c median levels.
On the contrary, there have been many tests that show that it is also healthy to keep your a1c levels at 7%.
According to accredited endocrinologist Matt Davies, the seven percent maintaining level of a1c is all right; still,
physicians need to consider their patient’s medical history even before they prescribe the treatment.
