A A A High Blood Sugar (Hyperglycemia) Whenever the glucose (sugar) level in one's blood rises high temporarily, this condition is known as hyperglycemia. The opposite condition, low blood sugar, is called hypoglycemia. Glucose comes from most foods, and the body uses other chemicals to create glucose in the liver and muscles. The blood carries glucose (blood sugar) to all the cells in the body. To carry glucose into the cells as an energy supply, cells need help from insulin. Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas, an organ near the stomach. The pancreas releases insulin into the blood, based upon the blood sugar level. Insulin helps move glucose from digested food into cells. Sometimes, the body stops making insulin (as in type 1 diabetes), or the insulin does not work properly (as in type 2 diabetes). In diabetic patients, glucose does not enter the cells sufficiently, thus staying in the blood and creating high blood sugar levels. Blood sugar levels can be measured in seconds by using a blood glucose meter, also known as a glucometer. A tiny drop of blood from the finger or forearm is placed on a test strip and inserted into the glucometer. The blood sugar (or glucose) level Continue reading >>

    I posted this question on another thread but didn’t get a response so trying again as probably nobody noticed
    I saw on TUDiabetes the moderator say that when you reduce your a1c from running high for many years you should do it slowly like 0.5 per cent per month - no idea where he got that from or he is just making it up
    My last a1c test was done in April and it was 8.5 - my August one was 6 and my October one should be 5 - so I guess I’ve followed that pattern almost but is there any documented studies of effects of reducing a1c fast
    I saw one on eye problems but I couldn’t figure out whether it applies if you had some small signs of retinopathy it can speed up or it can just appear and go fast
    I had my eye test yesterday and I have no signs of haemmorhage or have or anything else in the eye

    There is some evidence hat retina problems are more likely if a1c is reduced super quickly… how quickly is too quickly isn’t really something anyone really seems to know…

    I am guessing that is not exactly a study that would draw many participants…
