Thyroid And Blood Sugar Relationship

article In order to function properly, your body needs energy. Blood sugar, also known as blood glucose, is the primary source of fuel for energy production, particularly for your muscles, brain, and other parts of the body. In addition, blood sugar is a building block for bigger molecule structures and plays a major role in your health and wellbeing. Changes in blood sugar levels affect the metabolic processes and affect the entire body. Since thyroid problems are common as well as problems with blood sugar, it is impossible not to wonder if they could be connected to some people. You’ll find more info about this important subject below. Thyroid and high blood sugar High blood sugar, or hyperglycemia, is a common health concern affecting millions of people. There are two main types of hyperglycemia[i]: Fasting hyperglycemia – blood sugar levels higher than 130 mg/dl (milligrams per deciliter) and it usually occurs when a person doesn’t eat or drink for more than eight hours Postprandial (after-meal) hyperglycemia – blood sugar levels higher than 180 mg/dl about two hours after the meal.

    It's confirmed.
    THYROXINE RAISES BLOOD SUGAR.
