What are the tests to perform for monitoring blood glucose?
How are sugar levels related to risk for heart disease?

common diabetes

Diabetes blood sugar level is obtained when you perform a blood sugar test, and it is of most value especially when diabetes symptoms are noticed.

The most important thing is to learn how to correctly measure your blood glucose levels and carefully interpret the results by your own. If you find any difficulty, go and pay a visit to your doctor.



How to recognize if you have diabetes?

If the results you get are > 200 mg/dl, you are in a dangerous zone. Diabetes complications, heart stroke or even death are one step from you. Be careful!

I am just emphasizing the importance of your current health situation. At the same time, you can take total control of blood sugar through simple and natural steps.

They include lifestyle and dietary strategies changes that can give you a hand in lowering high sugar in blood and beating diabetes naturally.

  • Another important fact is to have a good understanding of what a normal sugar level is, what the range for your case as a diabetic is, and how far you can achieve it.


  • Diabetes blood sugar level - Understanding the tests


    The tests you need to perform are pretty easy. You may also try them at home through a practical home-testing kit and have the results whenever and wherever you want.

    However, you must also learn how to read the results by yourself correctly.

    Keep in mind that your testing results are different each time you perform the test. That's why it is useful to have knowledge on different types of tests and the related diabetes blood sugar levels in order to avoid misunderstanding.

    So, the blood sugar level you get when you perform a random blood sugar test differs from the one your obtain when you measure it two hours after having your meal and from the fasting glucose.

    Furthermore, levels of adult blood sugar are different from sugar levels in children. Meanwhile, HbA1C test is one of the tests, which shows the average of blood sugar in a 3 months period.

    It is good to draw your own blood glucose chart in order to pass it to your doctor and see how well have you been managing your diabetes. Based on the figures, your doctor will also decide what your average glucose level is.

    You can also prepare your log sheet where you keep your blood glucose levels always registered.

    What affects diabetes blood sugar level?

    Various factors can have different effects on your diabetes blood sugar level. There are some factors you can’t control, but other factors you can control, and if you realize these factors, you might take some important precautions.

    I - Risk factors you can completely control


    • Weight, If your body weight is more than your ideal weight by 20%, most probably, this will increase your blood glucose levels. In addition, being overweight puts you at higher risk for heart diseases. So, if you are overweight, losing excess weight will help you to beat diabetes, as it decreases insulin resistance and protects you from heart diseases.
    • Diet. Our body produces sugar it needs from its own sugar deposits. External sugar helps our body to work properly. Carbohydrates in sugary and fatty foods you eat can make your blood sugar raise.That is why it is necessary to obtain a balance between what we eat and what our own bodies produce on its own.
    • Bad habits. Bad habits, such as carouse, and smoking, make your diabetes blood sugar go up, and also lead to high blood pressure, heart disease and earlier and severer diabetes complications.
    • Sedentary life. Being sedentary, have no physical activity at all, is among the risk factors for heart disease. Moreover, the physical activity helps you to lose excess weight, lower your diabetes blood sugar level, and relieve the bad energies, like stress.

    II - Risk factors you cannot control



    The best thing you can do is to gamble the right information which will help you to better understand how these factors can affect your blood sugar level.

    • Family History. As for everything else in our body, the genes determine how much sugar our body has to produce. If you are diabetic, the genes work is altered and this alternation can be reflected on members of the same family. So, if your parents are diabetics, most probably, you’ll have it, and your children can have it too.
    • Age and belonging to a high-risk population. If you’re older than 45 years old and part of high-risk population, most probably, you will have high blood sugar levels soon if you don’t take the appropriate cautions.

    How to lower diabetes blood sugar level?


    • There are several ways to lower it. If you pay attention to what you eat, eliminate your bad dietary habits, and exercise regularly, you can manage to lower it.
    • Another way is by taking hypoglycemiant drugs but you should be aware of their side effects, that sometimes are the severest.
    • The last way how to keep in normal range your blood sugar levels is by using specific herbs that has been scientifically shown to have such characteristics. You can take them as tea or prepare salads.

    However, in this case, you should know what you're taking to prevent any other complications that probably would come from these supplements. If you choose the right one, you will be safe to keep your diabetes blood sugar level at a normal range.

    That's why it is very important to get knowledge of them. Only few minutes of your precious time to get the latest news and it will be easier for you to decide.

    Correlation of Glucose Levels with Heart Disease?

    If you have high blood glucose levels, then your chances of getting heart and blood vessels disease go higher and higher.

    Blood Glucose Levels and Risk for heart disease


    Meanwhile, if you manage to keep low levels of blood glucose, these chances decrease. This is the result a study of dr. Roland Goldberg and his colleagues in terms of Diabetes Prevention Program.


    This is especially true in case you have pre-diabetes (impaired blood glucose). So, if you are at risk of having diabetes, but you don't really have it, you can protect yourself and your heart and blood vessels by decreasing your blood glucose level.

    Diabetes Blood Sugar Levels and Death rate


    Even in case you're diabetic, you'll get the same benefits if you keep controlled your blood glucose.


    The golden rule for you is : ALWAYS WORK HARD ON LOWERING YOUR BLOOD SUGAR AND NEVER SURRENDER.


    You'll see the results very soon. And on the other hand, you'll keep yourself far away from diabetes complications.

    Anyway, you must have a strong personality to fight against diabetes. Maybe you may consider some natural ways of “fighting”.
