What is a Normal Blood Sugar Level?

For those with borderline diabetes what is now considered a normal blood sugar level has changed. This is extremely important as those with blood sugar problems often do not realize that they are close to getting this disease. Two blood tests are commonly used to determine if you have diabetes or borderline diabetes. One is the fasting plasma glucose test (FPG). The other is oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). These tests measure how quickly your body can “clear” glucose from your blood. People who are close to diabetes have blood glucose levels of 100-125 mg/dl after an overnight or eight-hour fast is diagnosed as borderline.
People with these results are considered to have impaired fasting glucose (IFG). Now what should be of serious concern to the diabetic is that this is the new lower level. The level was lowered because many people who were once told they were fine were in actuality not fine. Doctors had given people a false sense of security. The question of what was a normal blood sugar had to be changed.

There is a great danger in being labeled a borderline diabetic. The bodies cells are aging faster than a person with normal blood sugar. The pancreas is slowly failing and this is dangerous. As the pancreas fails the body can have a limited amount of insulin supplied. This often allows excess sugar to roam in the blood stream; this is dangerous and can lead to the loss of fingers. The lowering of the levels of who was diabetic has increased by millions those who are labeled borderline
If you have been told you have a higher than normal sugar level it is a time to get very serious. It is an
emergency signal that should not be ignored. Once the pancreas has given out it is very difficult to reverse the damage. The damaging high sugar level in the blood is causing the circulation to be affected. For men they risk impotence and may lose the ability to maintain an erection. The blood supply to the sex organ can be damaged. Often diabetic medications can cause serious effects that leave the patient in a difficult position between maintaining a normal blood sugar level or risking the medicines side effects. Science is revealing that there are natural methods that can control borderline diabetes without medication. This would be a great help to the diabetic.
