Possibility of Normal Blood Sugar Range For Diabetics

By: Hector Milla

What Levels of Blood Sugar Can Be Considered Normal? Your level should be between 70 milligrams per deciliter to 100 mg/dl after 8 hours of not eating. Levels above 100 mg/dL at any time may indicate that a pre-diabetes condition is present. You are prediabetes if your level is over 100 but under 200. Diabetes (either type 1 or type 2) is likely present if your sugar level exceeds 200.

You can lower it in several steps. If you would like more normal levels, attempt the following;

A. Start by slowly decreasing the amount of carbohydrates you consume. For more detailed dietary recommendations, you should check out the diet prescribed by Dr. Richard Bernstein. Dr. Bernstein analyzed the composition of many foods, and any which could not be tracked were eliminated. Ingredients that cannot be tracked can't be effectively managed. Some yummy meals low in carbohydrates may be found on our diabetic recipes page. Consistent insulin levels may be achieved by having the same amount of carbohydrates each day.

B. Your blood sugar should be tested many more times a day. We make 5 - 10 tests daily. Frequent readings are required to properly calibrate the amount of insulin you require, even though it's tough on the fingers. The A1C test is a vital indication of your blood sugar level. This one, which should be less than 6%, can be revealed easily with this test.

C. It is crucial to know how and when your insulin medication works. For instance, Gloria gets about two units of Regular Humalin insulin, before meals. This special insulin is given approx. 40 minutes before a meal since it takes this length of time to start working. Only give Humalog about 5 minutes before the meal as it is a faster acting insulin. You can consult your doctor or find out by yourself how much time it takes for your medicine to start working before enjoying a meal.

D. Making sure you eat 3 nutritious meals a day, and avoiding between-meal snacking, can make regulating your insulin levels less difficult a chore. Snacking can be an easily broken habit.

Complications from both types of diabetes are strongly correlated with poor management of blood sugar levels. A normal life span is possible, with hardly any complications, when you have diabetes, if you maintain levels as close as you can to normal.

Normal blood sugar ranges from 70 to 100 for a non-diabetic. Diabetics should be able to achieve the same levels as those who are not diabetic.
