Diabetes (Definition)

Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food.

Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells.

Diabetes development: In the development of type 2 diabetes, the glucose usually elevates gradually, going from normal to "impaired", and then to "diabetes". If your glu (fasting) was less than 100, it will probably not shoot up to more than 126 in nine months unless something changed: weight gain, steroid use, infection, other illness. But it is easy to get this checked out. Get a fasting glucose or a1c done. ...Read more

I am hearing that a healthy normal range of blood glucose in a healthy adult can be 70--120. Some MD's think 120 means high diabetes and insulin(?).

I am hearing that a healthy normal range of blood glucose in a healthy adult can be 70--120. Some MD's think 120 means high diabetes and insulin(?).
