Blood sugar is the glucose that is transported through the blood stream to the cells in a body. This helps the cells to get energy from the glucose. The foods we consume have different levels of sugar. Our body needs sugar but in a required level. But to maintain a healthy life, our body needs to have a balanced amount of sugar in our body which is neither too high nor too low.
The human digestive system breaks down carbohydrates into glucose molecules. Once we eat food, our digestive system breaks the carbohydrates into glucose and is transferred to the blood stream from there directly. Blood sugar levels fluctuate throughout the day. As we eat, our blood sugar level increases.
Monitoring blood sugar levels is very important to avoid the long-term consequences and treating your body accordingly. With the revolution in new technology, people can monitor their blood sugar levels even at home using the portable devices. It is very crucial to judge the highs and lows of the blood sugar level. Using the blood sugar chart, it will be easy to remember the implications of the medicines used. The doctors recommend checking the blood sugar before and after consuming meals.
The blood sugar levels rise and fall during the day which can be an indication of serious problems. The blood sugar chart is a good medium to test the blood sugar levels. But the accuracy of the blood sugar chart is still debatable as different countries have different ways to use it. The blood sugar chart shows the sugar levels for the non-diabetic as well as diabetic patients. The patients can manually check their blood sugar level using a glucometer and then the chart can help them read their observations.
