Blood sugar

A lot of people know the blood carries sugar as a major fuel for the body's cells, and bad things happen when it's too high or low. If you feel weak, dizzy, light-headed, sick to your stomach, your blood sugar may be high or low. If you are urinating more (and more often) than usual, it could mean your blood sugar is too high. The "finger-stick" method we use is one of the quickest ways to find out.
What a lot of people don't seem to know is how to keep their sugars from straying from the "happy" zone. Your body may be prone to periodic drops(hypoglycemia) or rises(hyperglycemia) in blood sugar for various reasons, including diabetes. In any case, controlling the amount of sugar entering your bloodstream is a strategy that can help most people, regardless of their condition. Choosing the right things to eat and drink is key.
