Our blood sugar level chart shows you at a glance the difference between healthy and diabetic blood glucose levels.
Because there are several studies that show that the complications of diabetes can happen in individuals with blood glucose levels that are in this range(1), we looked to see if there are any studies that show what normal blood sugar levels are in people that have no history of blood sugar problems nor any complications that could be associated with blood sugar imbalances. So what can you learn by comparing diabetic blood sugar levels with optimal blood sugar levels? So what is going on that causes the difference between the diabetic and optimal blood glucose levels in the blood sugar level chart above?
Blood sugar, or glucose, is an important source of energy and provides nutrients to your body's organs, muscles and nervous system. Normal blood sugar varies from person to person, but a normal range for fasting blood sugar (the amount of glucose in your blood six to eight hours after a meal) is between 70 and 100 milligrams per deciliter.
These variations in blood-sugar levels, both before and after meals, are normal and reflect the way that glucose is absorbed and stored in the body. As the small intestine absorbs glucose, the pancreas releases insulin, which stimulates body tissues and causes them to absorb this glucose and metabolize it (a process known as glycogenesis). When glucose levels drop between meals, the body takes some much-needed sugar out of storage.
When there isn't enough glucose stored up to maintain normal blood-sugar levels, the body will even produce its own glucose from noncarbohydrate sources (such as amino acids and glycerol). Too much glucose over an extended time (hyperglycemia) can result in the destruction of nerves, lowered resistance to infection, and heart and kidney disease. Chinese Foot Reflexology is an ancient natural therapy that utilizes various stimulation techniques to certain locations on the foot for prevention and treatment of disease.A The areas on the feet correspond to different bodily organs and systems. Moxibustion can produce the effect of warming qi, promoting blood circulation, strengthening the body resistance to eliminate pathogenic factor. Cold may obstructs the circulation of qi and blood in the meridians, while warmth can remove obstruction and promote the flow of qi and blood.A  Thus, moxibustion promotes qi and blood flow, relieves qi and blood stagnation and creates an analgesic effect. A To promote the circulation of qi and blood, induce an analgesic effect, subdue swelling, exlpel wind, cold and damp pathogens.
A  Conditions indicated for cupping include: acute sprain facial paralysis, hemiplegia, common cold, furnucles, carbunce and arthritis due to wind damp cold dampness.
Moving Cupping: It's mainly used in treateing obstruction of the channel or wandering pain. Successive Flash Cupping (Quick Cupping): It's mainly used for treating intractable diseases of the deep layer or internal organ diseases. With Baby Boomers now the single biggest sector of the American population, 60's culture seems more en vogue than ever--and embraced by a whole new generation.
When I was medical student in 1959, we were taught that normal range of Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) is 80 to 120 mg%.

In the past 50 years, recommended FBS level range has been revised downwards to 80 to 110 mg% by many Diabetes Associations and Diabetologists. Remember that BS levels in any individual are constantly fluctuating depending upon food, medicine, and activities. It is now generally agreed upon that Type 1 diabetes is because of inability in our body to produce insulin. However, it seems that tendency to suffer from type 2 diabetes is probably predestined with hereditary and other similar factors. The medical practitioner should provide ongoing advice for patients to avoid frank type 2 diabetes.
Test Blood sugar levels often enough for you to be aware what diet and exercises are good for you. Try and eat fresh locally grown fruits and vegetables only; most of your calorie requirement should come from such fresh plant based diet. About MeI practiced orthopedic surgery for over 30 years and managed a private hospital of 200 beds for 15 years. Always seek the advice of a qualified physician or health provider for medical diagnosis and treatment. The body gets glucose from the food you eat, and the absorption, storage and production of glucose is regulated constantly by complex processes involving the small intestine, liver and pancreas. After you eat, your body breaks down the carbohydrates in food into smaller parts, including glucose, which can be absorbed by the small intestine. This stored glucose (glycogen) is used to maintain healthy blood-sugar levels between meals. The process is kicked off by the pancreas, which releases a hormone known as glucagon, which promotes the conversion of stored sugar (glycogen) in the liver back to glucose. This process, known as gluconeogenesis, occurs most often during intense exercise and instances of starvation.
Massaging these reflex zones can help restore the bodya€™s natural equilibrium by adjusting the functions of the internal organs and promoting qi and blood circulation. Warmth can conquer coldness and dispel cold.A  It warms the yang and can rescue patient from collapse or unconsciousness due to yang collapse. Ginger has the property of regulating yin and wei, dispels cold, removes water and promotes digestion.A  Ita€™s for treating disorders of cold syndrome due to deficiency, such as vomiting, diarrhea, stomachache, abdominal pain and arthritis due to wind cold dampness. The purpose is to conduct heat energy through the needle shaft into the punctured point to produce a combined effect of needling and heat therapy.
Presently though, the consensus seems to be that FBS at even 110 mg% is also high and that it should be below 100 and some even suggest that it should be below 90 mg%. If we test a large number of non-diabetic persons for their FBS, it turns out to be 84 to 89 mg% on an average.

He is a staunch believer of keeping the blood sugar as low as possible (all experts do not agree with him because of risks of low blood sugars). Bernstein was born, the longevity of type 1 diabetics was considered to be less than 50 years. However, the label of being frank diabetic may probably be avoided for a long period of time and hence the possibility of complication reduced substantially.
However, all day long many suggest that the blood sugar levels should be constantly kept below 100 mg% to prevent many complications by means of diet control, exercise and medications. It is a life long condition and the medical providers can advise and guide you but cannot be with you all the time.
The recommended blood sugar levels represented on this chart are a reflection of what the American Diabetes Association asserts is a€?normala€?. It dates back more than 3,000 years and is commonly practiced i China, Taiwan, India, Korea, Japan and Thailand and recently has become more popular in other countries.A Full treatment includes 15-20 minutes warm herbal foot bath.
Ita€™s commonly used for windA  cold damp bi syndrome such as arthralgia and flaccid syndrome.
Yet another observation is that those with FBS nearer to 84 are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those their FBS nearer to 89 mg%. With better understanding of diabetes, availability of different kinds of insulin, easy availability of BS meters and many other factors like lower Infant Mortality Rate, antibiotics and better nutrition, the longevity of type 1 diabetes has increased to almost 60 to 70 years.
Even after that one can remain a “Diet controlled diabetic” and hence not needing any medications except keeping a strict diet and exercise regimen with weight control and exercises.
Christiansena€™s study, a€?Continuous Glucose Monitoring Data from Healthy Subjectsa€? as presented at the September 2006 European Association for the Study of Diabetes. Elizabeth has traveled throughout the Americas, studying political systems and indigenous cultures and teaching English to students of all ages. This indicates that the individual can delay development of frank type 2 diabetes by taking appropriate measures. He was lucky to have been born just after bovine insulin was found, which he was treated with. He is obviously doing something right to keep himself active and healthy and reaching almost 80 years of age. When the complications of diabetes are delayed, overall incidence of morbidity will also be decreased. He is now coming to 80 years old and though has retired from teaching he is still practicing and presents a webinar on this subject on last Wednesday of every month.
