Blood glucose monitoring alone does not improve your diabetes. It is how you use the information from your glucose testing that makes the difference to your diabetes control.
It is very important that blood sugar levels are kept as close to normal as possible.
Normal Blood Glucose Range: 4.0 to 5.9 mmol/l(72.0 to 106.2 mg/dl)
Hypoglycemia Range(low blood sugar level) :Below 4.0 mmol/l(72.0mg/dl)
Hyperglycemia Range(high blood sugar level): Above 7.0mmol/l(126.0mg/dl)
It is helpful to keep a record of blood sugar readings several times during the day.
Most of the symptoms of hypoglycemia are manageable. They often resolve after taking fast acting carbohydrate.
Hyperglycemia(high blood sugar levels) indicates that the body does not produce any insulin because the pancreas is not functioning .
As a consequence, one will experience the symptoms of dry skin, blurred vision, extreme thirst, frequent urination, hunger, wounds that slowly heal and drowsiness.
Blood sugar rises because no insulin is produced the glucose level falls if insulin is produced.
The only way a diabetic can get insulin is injecting themselves with insulin either by using a syringe or an insulin pen.
People get a high blood sugar level when they dont give themselves enough insulin,are physically inactive,under stress and sometimes when they consume alcohol.
Hyperglycemia can result in a more serious condition called ketoacidosis, which is a life threatening condition that can make a person vomit, feel nauseated, dry mouth and shortness of breath.
Regular monitoring of your blood sugar level is vital .
