Blood Sugar-a type of sugar that is created, when the carbohydrate that one eats is broken down in the body. During digestion, glucose passes through the wall of the intestine, into the bloodstream, to the liver, and eventually into the general circulation. From there, glucose can then enter individual cells, or tissues throughout the body, to be used for fuel, and provide energy.
I have to check my blood sugar four times a day, before each meal, and at bed time. My blood sugar level is always somewhere between 400-600, I am what is known as a brittle diabetic. I sometimes feel like a pin cushion, because I have to prick my fingers so much. The skin on my fingers dry out so badly, lotion, lotion, lotion!!
