Monitoring your glucose ranges is very important and should be done on a regular basis (especially if you are a diabetic). One of the best ways to monitor your glucose is to use a chart of blood sugar level of diabetes.
Glucose is the main fuel your body uses to produce energy. Without it your body will not function properly (just like a car). The chart I am about to show you will be very useful to you as it will help you monitor when problems occur and if there is any pattern to your readings. The patterns will become very clear to you (as you learn how your own body works) and you can discuss them more clearly and effectively with your health care professional. It is crucial that you know the type of events, foods, activities and medications that can cause your blood sugar to increase or decrease.
You should work closely with your health care provider to make sure you meet your goals. It will provide a measurement tool to help you keep track of your levels. You should familiarize yourself with how to use the meter.
Diabetes blood sugar chart – normal ranges of blood glucose
When you wake up (and before breakfast) your levels should be between 80 and 120. This is considered a healthy range.
Before meals, your levels should also be between 80 and 120.
Two hours after eating, your levels should be 170 or less.
Before lunch, you should fall back to 80-120.
Before going to bed, it is ideal to be between 100 and 140.
At 3 in the morning (while sleeping), it is ideal to be between 70 and 110.
While fasting, it is ideal that you stay in the range of 70 to 100.
The numbers in this chart will help you get a good idea of normal blood glucose levels; however, you may want to ask your health care provider where exactly your rank should be (during each of the previous events). It is important to receive frequent tests, as this can reduce the risk of complications of your diabetes.
I hope this diabetes blood sugar chart was beneficial to you and taught you a bit about how to monitor your ranges. If you want to learn more about diabetes and learn how to find relief from diabetes, check out my website on diabetes and blood sugar.
