Today at the Age of Grace, Diabetes is in the spotlight for health awareness and prevention! My post is perfect timing, since Saturday, November 14 is World Diabetes Day. Are you in the know regarding your blood sugar glucose level? Are you aware that an uncontrolled blood glucose level can lead to type 2 diabetes?

Has the system failed us? Do we need to make an appeal? About sugar, that is! The sugar verdict is frustrating and predictable if one doesn’t make their health and wellness matter. Last week’s blog post on sugar leads us to a further discussion about sugar or glucose in the body.
Do you know your blood sugar value? Have you had an A1C blood test to determine your blood sugar level? Fasting blood sugar levels should be measured six to eight hours after eating. The measurement is milligrams of glucose per one-tenth liter (mg/dL) of blood:
- Less than 109 mg/dL: Normal
- 110-125 md/dL: Fasting blood glucose/borderline, pre-diabetes
- 126 mg/dL and over: Diabetes Type 2
