Blood Glucose level in Diabetics patients
Normal person carries a Blood sugar level of 100 mg/dl. But when this level increased to beyond 125 mg/dl this stage is called a diabetic stage and one reached this is for lifetime. But pre diabetic level lies between 100 and 125 mg/dl. One should check his or her blood sugar level by Glucose meter frequently after every 10 to 12 month span.
Diabetes not necessarily follows Pre-diabetes
This is not necessary that Diabetes always follows pre diabetes. Pre diabetic can eliminate the changes of developing type 2 Diabetes by making small changes in his or her lifestyle. But he or she can never completely outcome the chances of getting type 2 diabetes later in the lifetime. However you can only postponed it to months or years depending how much you have included the healthy lifestyle in your routine.
Doctors normally recommends FPG (fasting plasma glucose) test in case of pre diabetes. For this test patients needs to fast for at-least 10 hours before sample can be taken for blood sugar test. The results indicate whether you diabetic or not. Normal levels are:
If your blood sugar level is 100 mg/dl than you are a normal human being.
If your blood sugar level is between 100 to 125 mg/dl than you are pre diabetic.
If your blood sugar level is more than 125 mg/dl mean you are already diabetic.
Root cause of pre-diabetes - Insulin Resistance
Insulin resistance is the main cause for pre diabetic. Insulin is the hormones responsible for maintaining correct sugar level in the blood. But once they stop working or not work properly or our body becomes insulin resistant, extra sugar stays there in the blood causing pre diabetes or diabetes.
Why there is Insulin Resistant?
Many factors are responsible for presence of insulin resistance in the body. Our environment and daily lifestyle keeps changing at a very fast speed our body is not capable of keeping that pace. This non-incumbency causes body to be Insulin resistant. Some persons have this by genetics other develop it by unhealthy lifestyle.
