Here Is How To Read A Blood Sugar Chart

By C.j. Ringwall

Type 2 diabetes can creep up on you without you even knowing it. Watch for any of the following symptoms, if you see any of these, you should have your blood glucose level checked if:

-You have to urinate a lot

-You have a persistent thirst

-Unexpected or unexplained weight loss

-Chronic tiredness or blurred vision

Any of the symptoms above could be the result of diabetes or it's precursor, pre-diabetes and you should visit your health provider and have your blood sugar tested. The tests that your provider will likely run will include:

-Hemoglobin A1-C (or sometimes written as HbA1c) - glycohemoglobin, a reliable test that measures your blood glucose levels over a period of time.

-Fasting Blood Glucose or FPG- a blood sugar test taken at least eight hours after a meal, sometimes called a fasting glucose level.

-Oral Glucose Tolerance - you drink a bottle of measured glucose and then your blood is taken in hourly intervals to check the blood sugar levels over time.

All of the tests above will have to be ordered by your doctor; you can't do these with any home testing. The first test that is normally run is the fasting glucose, and then the other tests like the HbA1c and tolerance tests are run if the first test is abnormal.

If you are pre-diabetic, you may have an abnormal result for the fasting glucose, but the follow-up tests may be normal, as your blood sugar levels have not raised up enough to show up on every test.

Note that these numbers are not the only thing your doctor will use to diagnose; your heath provider will consider all of your clinical signs as well as lab work when making a diagnosis.

Some other points you should know:

-If you are over 45, you should be tested for pre-diabetes.

-Obese patients under 45 should be tested too, particularly if you have any of the symptoms mentioned above.

-You can get full diabetes within 10 years of you have pre-diabetes and do nothing about it.

-It's easy for pre-diabetic patients to avoid full Type 2 diabetes by making small changes in their lifestyle, including diet and exercise.
