What Is Normal Blood Sugar?

Blood sugar, or glucose, is an important source of energy and provides nutrients to your body's organs, muscles and nervous system. The body gets glucose from the food you eat, and the absorption, storage and production of glucose is regulated constantly by complex processes involving the small intestine, liver and pancreas. Normal blood sugar varies from person to person, but a normal range for fasting blood sugar (the amount of glucose in your blood six to eight hours after a meal) is between 70 and 100 milligrams per deciliter. For most individuals, the level of glucose in the blood rises after meals. A normal blood-sugar range after eating is between 135 and 140 milligrams per deciliter. These variations in blood-sugar levels, both before and after meals, are normal and reflect the way that glucose is absorbed and stored in the body. After you eat, your body breaks down the carbohydrates in food into smaller parts, including glucose, which can be absorbed by the small intestine. As the small intestine absorbs glucose, the pancreas releases insulin, which stimulates body tissues and causes them to absorb this glucose and metabolize it (a process known as glycogenesis).

    I think I am hypoglycemic but I can't get my endoctrinologist to do a 3 hour glucose test..is it normal for my blood sugar to drop to 60... 30 minutes after eating. When I check my sugar level in the morning it is usually 70-75.
    I am having very bad blurred vision, extreme fatigue, dizziness, shakes, nervousness, sweating...etc.

    A doctor told me just yesterday that 60 was normal.
    And I suppose for some people it can be.
    I would say if you're feeling bad, it's hypoglycemia.
    My normal range was always 85-120, if I'd go under 85, I would feel it.
    I am also waking up between 70-75 and it is NOT normal for me, I feel bad at that range.
    I feel much worse in the 60s.
    Years ago the normal blood sugar range was 80-120, now, it's 70-120.
    Personally, 70s are bad for me.
    I would find a new endo and demand a Glucose tolderance or a 72 hour fasting sugar test.
    If you want some answers until then, I would reccomend going to walmart, buying the $9 relion meter, and a pack of 50-100 test strips (44 cent per strip).
    The WalMart brand matches every vein draw I've EVER had within 5 points, which is AMAZING. It's usually 1 point off. I own 6 different meters by the way.
    Anyways, your first meal of the day, check your sugar prior, then eat, and then test every 10-15 minutes or so. This may tell you if your sugar is going up very fast and then your insulin is kicking in very hard and knocking you down too low.
    I would say nip this thing in the bud before it gets to a very bad level like I'm currently at.
    Try eating 100 percent whole grains, all complex carbs, no refined. Add fats and proteins, NO simple sugars for a few days and see if you still drop.
