The blood sugar is uneven, the "culprits" of complications!

Time : 2022-12-17 Hits : 23

It is well known that persistent hyperglycemia is extremely harmful to the body. However, a blood glucose state with a large fluctuation is more harmful than persistent hyperglycemia!

Rapid changes in blood sugar may damage the sensory nerves, causing symptoms such as numbness and pain in the hands and feet, that is, "diabetic peripheral neuropathy"; the greater the fluctuation of blood sugar, the higher the incidence of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. In addition, blood glucose fluctuations can accelerate brain aging and affect cognitive ability in elderly diabetic patients.

Therefore, even if the glycated hemoglobin is well controlled, if the blood sugar fluctuates greatly, it may cause complications.

Pay attention to blood glucose monitoring to prevent blood sugar fluctuations

Many people with diabetes do not pay attention to blood glucose monitoring. When they go to see a doctor, doctors can't figure out their blood sugar status. It is difficult to determine the treatment plan and evaluate the condition. As an effective means of diabetes treatment, self-glycemic monitoring can provide the data needed for hypoglycemic treatment programs to ensure the effectiveness and scientific treatment.

Self-monitoring blood sugar, generally carry out multi-point monitoring, such as monitoring blood glucose before three meals, two hours after three meals, and seven points before bedtime, or even finger blood sugar at 3 am, can also be used as a long-term monitoring indicator. Learn about the fluctuations in blood glucose throughout the day and give appropriate treatment in a timely manner. At the same time, the glycated hemoglobin was checked once every 3 months, and the blood glucose of the fingers was compared.

Therefore, glycated hemoglobin alone does not reflect blood sugar fluctuations. Only glycated hemoglobin and finger blood glucose monitoring can fully reflect the blood sugar control.

Common Sense:

Monk fruit extract is derived from the pulp of the fruit and is used to sweeten foods and beverages without the calories of sugar. In addition, the extract appears to lower both blood sugar and blood lipids in experimental models of animal diabetes.The active sweet substances appear to be the mogrosides which are about 2- 300 times the as sweet as table sugar. The mogrosides also function as antioxidants, potentially limiting the oxidative damage caused by high levels of blood glucose.
