Diabetes Freedom

Understanding your blood sugar on the blood Diabetes Freedom Review glucose level chart is straightforward. The value has somewhat different implications depending on when you or your doctor tested your blood sample. For instance, was it taken while fasting (first thing in the morning before eating) or after eating a meal or a period of hours after drinking a standard glucose tolerance test drink?If the test is done while fasting, it tells you if your pancreas can get your level back into a normal range, which should be a value of 99 mg/dL or below. Of course a good blood glucose level falls within a range rather than a single value. A too-low level is not safe for you either - so when the value dips into a range of 60-70 or below, your brain may not be able to work properly.Think about your ideal blood sugar levels in a Goldilocks way. In the children's fairy tale, the little girl Goldilocks tries out various items in the bears' home, finding that one was too much, one was too little, but one was just right.Your doctor may tell you that you are prediabetic if your fasting blood level falls in the range of 100-125 mg/dL. Over 126 mg/dL for fasting values meets a definition of diabetes. But there is more to the story. In diabetes, your body cannot handle glucose loads from eating or drinking foods with a lot of carbohydrates or sugars in them.
