In this post, we’re talking about what is normal blood sugar. This is a really important topic because it affects everybody, not just people who are suffering from a condition but everybody, and the reason for that is because it’s estimated that the average person consumes over 130 pounds of sugar per year. This is 26 times more sugar than what people consume a hundred years ago.
Now you’re probably thinking to yourself, “Well, that’s not me,” but a lot of people fail to recognize that 70% of packaged and processed foods contain sugar, and the other thing people fail to recognize is that when you are consuming a lot of carbs is breaking down in your body as sugar.
Normal blood sugar level: 80-100
Normal is 80 to 100 milligrams per deciliter. This is referring to taking a simple blood sugar test, fasting for eight hours. This is your fasting blood glucose okay many people can go to a pharmacy. You can pick up these really inexpensive blood glucose meters, do it right in your home. When you fast for eight hours and you take your blood sugar and it’s in this range right here that’s an indication of normal okay what this essentially means is that insulin is shuttling sugar into the cell for energy properly and that the pancreas is actually producing enough insulin for your body to function correctly.
Now when you’re in this normal range you’re gonna feel much better your body’s going to function much better and you’re going to make sure that your preserve your body from facing all these different degenerative conditions that come out of having chronically spiked blood sugar levels.
Now a lot of people questions that “Don’t I need to actually consume sugar so that my blood sugar stays at the proper level and that my body has the energy it needs in the fact is, is, is that you don’t and the reason for that is because your body’s capable of bringing down, breaking down carbohydrates for sugar, breaking down protein for sugar and breaking down fat for sugar. So your body’s actually going to be able to use those different energy sources and break them out and down as sugar to supply your body with adequate energy. You don’t have to consume sugar in order to actually have proper energy levels.
Now when we’re on this topic of normal the other thing I want to mention is that people who have blood sugar instability they can actually have what’s called reactive hypoglycemia.
Abnormal blood sugar level: 100-125
So 100 to 125 milligrams per deciliter is considered to be pre-diabetes. Now, this is a big problem because 84 million people suffer from this. It’s estimated one in three adults, we did put adults here, but, you know mind you this is something that’s a big problem with kids now, and it’s estimated that if you have pre-diabetes for 10 years or more it leads into full-blown diabetes.
Now the reason this is a big deal is that 84 million people followed it into this pre-diabetes state. This is going to be a lot of people that you know and the reason for this is because they’re over-consuming carbohydrates, drinking a lot of sugary drink, sugary coffees, you know tons of sugary beverages and it’s causing all those issues that I talked about advanced aging, it’s causing the inflammation, it’s driving degenerative conditions and that’s why we see so many degenerative conditions.
So when you have pre-diabetes some of the different symptoms are going to be a lot of fatigue, a lot of drink, drinking a lot of water feeling thirsty all the time and also frequent urination okay. And so after you fall into this state and you’ve had it for more than ten years then you fall and fall into full-blown diabetes.
Type 2 blood sugar level: 125+
We’re not gonna really focus on this because that is just a whole another topic. A lot of people suffer from diabetes the important thing that you need to know is that when somebody has type 2 diabetes it is possible to reverse it. Many people are, are, are made to believe that there’s nothing that you can do about it, but in fact you can reverse diabetes type 2.
