Questions & Answers

Q: What are the recommended blood sugar levels for a healthy individual?

A healthy individual should aim for fasting blood sugar levels between 70 to 100 and between 120 to 140 two to three hours after a meal.

Q: What are the effects of consuming sugar and high fructose corn syrup on blood sugar and insulin resistance?

Sugar and high fructose corn syrup significantly raise blood sugar levels and contribute to insulin resistance by overloading the liver with fructose, leading to fatty liver disease.

Q: How does protein and fat intake affect blood sugar?

Protein can be converted into glucose and slightly impacts blood sugar levels, while fat has a minimal impact on blood sugar regulation but can indirectly affect it through its conversion into glucose in the liver.

Q: What is the role of insulin resistance in blood sugar control?

Insulin resistance occurs when cells resist the action of insulin, causing higher blood sugar levels. This resistance results from prolonged exposure to high blood sugar and carbohydrates.

Q: What dietary changes can help lower blood sugar levels?

To lower blood sugar, it is recommended to avoid sugar and high carbohydrate intake. Including non-starchy vegetables, reducing meal frequency, practicing intermittent fasting, and engaging in gentle exercise can also be beneficial.

Q: What are the recommended blood sugar levels for a healthy individual?

A healthy individual should aim for fasting blood sugar levels between 70 to 100 and between 120 to 140 two to three hours after a meal.

Summary & Key Takeaways

  • Normal blood sugar range when fasting is between 70 and 100, with impaired glucose regulation at 101 to 125, and levels exceeding 126 for type 2 diabetes.

  • Glucose levels should not exceed 170 to 200 after meals, with higher ranges for insulin resistance and diabetes.

  • Optimal blood sugar levels should aim for fasting between 80 to 90 and stay between 90 to 110 after meals.
