Is it Possible to Have Normal Blood Sugar Levels?

Mar 24, 2008
What blood sugar levels can be considered normal? Your sugar level after fasting for at least 8 hours should be between 70 and 100 milligrams per deciliter. A pre-diabetes condition exists if sugar is above 100 any time. You are prediabetes if your blood sugar level is over 100 but under 200. Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes is indicated by sugar levels above 200.

The process of bringing down your blood sugar can be done in several simple steps. If you would like more normal levels, attempt the following;

A. Lower your carbohydrate intake slowly first. If you are wondering which specific foods to eat and which to avoid, pay attention to the work of Dr. Richard Bernstein. He has tested many foods for us and has eliminated all foods whose genetic makeup could not be tracked. After all, if you can't track it, you can't manage it. Some yummy meals low in carbohydrates may be found on our diabetic recipes page. If you follow the guidelines of a predetermined amount of carbohydrates per meal, the amount of insulin in your blood should remain at a consistent level throughout the day.

B. Run a test on your blood sugar level often. Checking your levels approximately 5 to 10 times per day is recommended. Although your fingers may not like it, frequent checks are essential to maintaining an appropriate insulin level. The A1C test is a vital indication. Blood sugar levels, which should be less than 6%, can be revealed easily with this test.

C. Understanding when and how your insulin works is also important. For instance, Gloria gets about two units of Regular Humalin insulin, before meals. Humalin requires about 40 minutes before becoming effective; one should therefore not eat immediately after taking it. Humalog should be given about five minutes before meals, since it acts very quickly. You can consult your physician or find out by yourself how much time it takes for your medicine to start working before enjoying a meal.

D. Limit yourself to three meals a day without snacking. The habit of snacking can be broken easily.

Controlling the level of blood sugar by those with either type of diabetes is an important factor in whether or not diabetes-related complications occur and the severity. Therefore, keeping one's sugar level in the normal range eliminates most of the risk of complications from diabetes.

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