Blood sugar is the main sugar found in your blood, often referred as glucose. It comes from the food you eat and is your body’s main source of energy.
Diabetes occurs when your blood sugar levels are too high, which can cause several problems like:
- damage to the large blood vessels of the heart, brain and legs.
- damage to the small blood vessels, causing problems in the eyes, kidneys, feet and nerves.
Other parts of the body can also be affected by diabetes, this is why it is very important to keep a regular schedule of eating (healthy foods) and exercise.
If you don’t have diabetes or if you know a member of your family that has diabetes, it is very important to check your blood sugar levels in order to avoid any disease and complications. It is recommended that you get a blood sugar test done by your doctor in order to know your average blood sugar level.
