Glucose Powder Vs Sugar
The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. The body naturally tightly regulates blood glucose levels as a part of metabolic homeostasis. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and blood lipids (in the form of fats and oils) are primarily ...Read more
Depends: If you don't have diabetes it won't even go up enough to be noticed. If you have diabetes, it can go up and stay up for a long time -- unless you're on medication, in which case it may go up only slightly and drop down again quickly -- for instance if you've taken a recent injection of Insulin which is still acting in your body. ...Read more

Depends: Hi. A lot of people have self-diagnosed "hypoglycemia", which is total BS and has nothing to do with low blood glucose; some people just love to have a diagnosis when there's nothing wrong with them.

70-99mg/dl fasting: Normal blood sugars are between 70-100mg/dl when you are in a fasting state (at least 8hrs). Diabetes is present when the number hits 126mg/dl in the fasting state. When the sugars fall in between these ranges (100-125), this would be considered impaired fasting glucose or pre-diabetes (borderline diabetes). ...Read more
Here is the math: A 30% glucose solution contains 30 gms of glucose in 100 ml of solution, that would be 6 gms in 20 ml. A tablespoon of sugar is about 12 grams of sugar. Therefore 20 ml of a 30% glucose solution is equivalent to about 1/2 tablespoon of sugar. I'm not sure how this info helps you, but there it is. ...Read more
