Understanding blood glucose level ranges is key to both diabetes diagnosis and diabetes self-management.
Any sugar levels higher than normal are unhealthy. A level that's higher than normal, but not reaching the point of full-blown diabetes, is called prediabetes.
According to the American Diabetes Association, 86 million people in the U.S. have prediabetes. These people are five to six times more likely to get diabetes over time.
Well-managed diabetes can delay or prevent complications that affect your eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Diabetes doubles your risk for heart disease and stroke, too. Fortunately, controlling your blood sugar will also make these problems less likely. http://goo.gl/aHsojW
