normal blood sugarSugar, unlike fats and proteins, which mainly plays the role of bricks in the building of new cells, and for the most part - one of the main sources of energy. Normal development and progress of all vital processes require the presence of glucose, which is transforming easily, produces the same amount of energy. Maintaining a normal level of volume of sugar - the key to our health.

When you receive the blood sugar from a fingertip, the volume of which according to the research results, should be within 3,3 - 5,5 mmol/l. This value is the same for all age groups. But it is very average because of normal glucose level at one and the same person throughout the day that will change, going beyond those limits. These fluctuations are due to physiologically and noticed after meals. Considering that the normal rate of glucose is 5.5 mmol/l, and the molar mass of this material is 180g/mol, it is possible to know the amount in grams, contained in blood of an adult. The average content of blood - five liters. Having made all the necessary calculations, it turns out that the normal sugar - 4-5 grams, while one Cup of coffee - more than 10 Once in the body, sugar is absorbed, the amount will increase. Based on this, the collection of blood sugar is carried out in the morning on an empty stomach, i.e., in conditions in which the food intake may not distort the results of the study, increasing the amount of glucose.

normal sugar levelthe Human body is a very important stability in the normal value of glucose, without sharp increases or decreases. Sugar from the digestive tract (gastrointestinal tract), enrolling in the body in excess, accumulates in the muscles and liver to form glycogen. However, if its amount is strongly reduced, glycogen, decaying, makes up for the lack of glucose. As a result of these biochemical reactions it is possible to maintain optimal performance for the life of the person. If the balance for some reasons cannot be sustained and glucose drops below 3.3 mmol/l, it can lead to a sharp defeat and disruption of the brain and other organs. When you rise above 10ммоль/l to thickening of the blood and diabetes.

the effects of increasing sugar less noticeable, so the disease develops and occurs in a latent form, not expressing many years.
