The Bloody High Blood Sugar

Aug 17, 2007
Does high blood pressure normally run in your family's blood?

If yes, then you must take into consideration having a regular blood test. In this process you will be able to know whether you might have an underlying ailment.

The blood glucose is normally expressed in millimoles pr litre (mmol/l). Typically, its level is lowest in the morning and higher after mealtime than its narrow limits right through out the day which is 4 to 8mmol/l.

Note: Glucose is normally the only sugar found in the blood. Blood glucose concentrations are kept within a relatively narrow range by such factors as hepatic and renal uptake and release, glucose removal by peripheral tissues, hormone influences on uptake and release, and intestinal absorption. The only endogenous sources of glucose are the liver and kidneys which convert glucose-6-phosphate to glucose. Insulin is the main hormone that affects glucose blood levels.

However in the case of diabetes, it blows out of proportion until it is treated or at least maintained. Yet, though treated, there will still be some time where it will go adrift from its normal level.

Now, if you happen to discover that you have failed to escape this kind of illness. The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) which was introduced by the Lousiana State University Ag Center in their research could be of so much help.

The study states that a healthy food preparation will be able to trim down your blood pressure and reduce the possibility of reducing it to normal levels. It also shows that blood pressure may be decreased by taking foods which are low in salt, total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol. Likewise it also advises a diet loaded with fruits, whole grains and low-fat dairy foodstuffs and vegetables.

In addition, the study also showcased the usual American diet sodium cutback. According to the results the minimal intake of sodium also minimizes the blood sugar level.

Since high blood pressure threatens the chances of heart disease, stroke and kidney disease, which ranks as the first, third and ninth chief causes of death in the American populace. It is therefore important to do the necessary measures to prevent it from happening.

Three things may help you prevent high blood sugar:
- Testing your blood sugar often, especially if you are sick or not following your normal routine. You can see when your blood sugar is above your target range, even if you don't have symptoms of high blood sugar (increased thirst, increased urination, and fatigue).
- Visit your doctor if you have frequent high blood sugar or your blood sugar is consistently above your target range. Your medication might need to be adjusted or changed.
- Drink extra water or noncaffeinated, nonsugared drinks to prevent dehydration
