What Are The Ideal Levels Of Blood Sugar?

A blood sugar or blood glucose chart identifies ideal blood sugar levels throughout the day, including before and after meals. Doctors use blood sugar charts to set target goals and monitor diabetes treatment plans. Blood sugar charts also help those with diabetes assess and self-monitor blood sugar test results. What is a blood sugar chart? Blood sugar charts act as a reference guide for blood sugar test results. As such, blood sugar charts are important tools for diabetes management. Most diabetes treatment plans involve keeping blood sugar levels as close to normal or target goals as possible.

    I also am diabetic and havde many other health problems, however severe itching has
    been a real problem. My skin is dry,y scalp itches, and I could go through so much benedryl that I felt drained of all energyI My advice is to eliminate gluten, egg, corn, and sugar from your diet. It is hard but well worth how good you will feel, energy returns and itching stops. good luck. I hope this works for you

    I,too, have severe itching. Especially at night. I am a type 2 diabetic for over 20 years. I’m also a pharmacist’s dream customer due to (but not limited to): diabetes with neuropathy in my feet that affects my walking, Parkinsons, restless leg syndrome, Barretts syndrome, high blood pressure (had a triple bypass 7 years ago and have a pacemaker for 11 years), retain water but also have nominal kidney problems that keep my lasix down to 40mgdaily dosage, mild anxiety/depression and other non-fatal ailments. I am 79 years old. I itch mainly at night and it keeps me from sleeping well. I do not have hives or psoriasis but my scratching raises bumps and, sometimes, rough skin patches. In addition to some vitamins, I have daily doses of amaryl, lasix, nexium, sinamet, baby aspirin, toprol xl, lipitor, cozaar, requip, actos, zoloft and lovaza, My scratching causes sores and light bleeding. If anyone has a way to help me relieve this problem, I would appreciate your advice. Hydrocortisone cream 1.0% offers very temporary relief; up to 1 or 2 hours.
