Who doesn’t love life, it’s not easy to live without good health and it seems like hell. And the disease that is proving to be the most deadly to humans today is diabetes.
Diabetes is a disease that quietly licks the internal organs of the human body like termites and if not detected in time, it can lead to vision loss, kidney failure, and innumerable other medical problems.
Surprisingly, most patients with type 2 diabetes are often unaware of the disease, so it is important to get regular blood sugar check-ups.
“But the question is, what is a healthy blood sugar level?”
A healthy person’s blood sugar level should be less than 100 mg/dL before meals and 70 to 140 mg/dL after meals.
In contrast, people with the onset of diabetes or pre-diabetes should have 80 to 130 mg/dL before meals and 180 mg/dL after meals to avoid complications.
People can also find out the average blood sugar level in 3 months through the A1C test, but this test should be done only after consulting a doctor.
Blood sugar levels rise and fall in each person throughout the day. Blood sugar levels are usually the lowest before breakfast, which rises after meals.
As long as the blood sugar level reaches a lethal level, it is possible to bring it back to normal. A few points can be implemented for this purpose, such as limiting the use of carbohydrates.
Water intake should be increased so that excess blood sugar can be dissolved in the blood and become part of physical activities, such as walking after meals and eating more high-fiber foods.
“These tips may not replace medical treatment, but they can be a helpful part of a diabetes treatment plan.”
What age or elements should make a blood sugar check-up a habit?
Everyone over the age of 40 should have their initial blood sugar checked, and if the results are normal, do so every year.
Even if you gain a lot of weight, you should have your blood sugar level checked every 3 months, and make it a habit to do it even in case of high blood pressure, high cholesterol level, sitting all the time, or heart disease.
If pre-diabetes has been diagnosed, this check-up should be made a habit every year. If a woman is diagnosed with diabetes during pregnancy, she should be screened for diabetes every three years.
