Maintaining Blood Sugar

Maintaining Blood Sugar

Glucose management, or maintaining healthy blood sugar levels both while fasting and after meals, is vital to lasting health. Blood sugar health involves gluconeogenesis, or sugar production in the liver, as well as the conversion of starch (such as ingested grain) into glucose. Healthy glucose elimination is also important to maintaining healthy glucose levels.

Glucose Management / Blood Sugar Information & Research

1.
How do you feel when your blood sugar is too high?

Slightly elevated blood sugar probably won’t make you feel any different. Large changes in blood sugar however, can affect vision health and immune response, cause feelings of general fatigue, make you hungry and/or thirsty and even encourage more frequent urination. Relying on how you feel is not a good way to monitor your blood sugar. You should undergo periodic blood tests instead.

2.
What is a reasonable blood sugar level?

The normal range for fasting glucose is 65-99 mg/dL (LabCorp). The normal range for hemoglobin A1c is 4.8%-5.6% (LabCorp). The normal range for two-hour after-meal (post-prandial) glucose is 65-139 mg/dL (LabCorp).

3.
How do you manage glucose?

A healthy diet and exercise are crucial to blood sugar health. If you’re eating healthy and exercising, but still have blood sugar test results outside the normal range, see your doctor. Supplementation with maqui berry and clove bud extract may help maintain already-normal glucose levels.
