Glucose is a simple sugar. The blood sugar level is the concentration of glucose present in the blood.
The normal blood glucose level (tested while fasting) for non-diabetics, should be between 3.9 and 7.1 mmol/L (70 to 130 mg/dL).
High blood sugar level may point to diabetes. Diabetes mellitus (DM), commonly known as diabetes, is a group of metabolic disorders characterized by a high blood sugar level over a prolonged period.] Symptoms of high blood sugar include frequent urination, increased thirst, and increased hunger
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the insulin producing cells in the pancreas (beta cells) are suppressed or destroyed by the body’s immune system, causing insulin production to diminish. With the diagnosis of diabetes, care must be taken to stabilize and maintain blood glucose levels; this is usually achieved with insulin injections. Any measure to protect remaining pancreatic beta cells also becomes a priority.
Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes, it is a lifelong disease that keeps your body from using insulin the way it should. People with type 2 diabetes are said to have insulin resistance. People who are middle-aged or older are most likely to get this kind of diabetes, so it used to be called adult-onset diabetes. But type 2 diabetes also affects kids and teens, mainly because of obesity.
Diabetic hypertriglyceridaemia and Omega 3
Omega-3 fatty acids can be given in conjunction with metformin to reduce triglyceride levels in diabetic dyslipidaemia without any adverse drug reactions or any drug interaction. Omega-3 fatty acids were effective in reducing the triglyceride level significantly as compared to placebo. Two grams of omega-3 fatty acids were more effective than 1 gram of omega-3 fatty acids in reducing triglyceride levels. Read more
