The sugar level


People who care about their health, should be systematically examined, in particular, to hand over blood on sugar. Interpreting the results of this study will help to identify abnormalities in the endocrine system and the time to begin treatment.

What are the norms of level of glucose in the blood for healthy people, and any deviation from them should be alarming? To properly decode analysis may be a doctor, but having the results of this study and knowing the normal glucose level that you can understand, you have normal sugar, or is there a cause for concern.

For adults, the norm is fasting blood sugar levels from 3.3 to 5.5 mmol/L. in This case, if investigated capillary blood (the analysis was given up from the finger). If in your blood at the time of analysis of sugar reached 5.5-6.0 mmol/l, the endocrinologist will diagnose "prediabetes" - a condition intermediate between health and diabetes, and require immediate action. If nothing is done, prediabetes (or impaired glucose tolerance) can develop into diabetes.

If the result of the study, capillary blood showed a glucose level above 6.1 mmol/l, this indicates that you have diabetes.

In the study of venous blood transcript analysis is somewhat different. The normal sugar level in this case is higher by about 12%. In other words, diabetes is diagnosed if glucose level above 7.0 mmol/L.

it Must be remembered that the precision of the results before analysis should refrain from any food for 8-12 hours during this period of time also can't drink anything but water.

In some cases assigned to the current blood glucose level, which is given without regard to time of last meal. The result, exceeding 11.1 mmol/l indicates possible diabetes. If there is doubt about the presence of this disease, appointed a study on sugar under load. According to his decoding endocrinologist judge about, does the patient have diabetes mellitus.

Symptoms of this disease are constant thirst, weak spells, fatigue, dry and itchy skin, boils, poorly healing wounds. People registered with diabetes, from time to time tests of urine and blood glucose, decoding of which gives the opportunity to find the right diet and correct dose of insulin or glucose-lowering drugs.
