Blood Sugar Charts information

Age is just one factor that can impact glucose levels. Young children, teens, adults, and senior citizens may have different blood sugar goals. This chart details the clinical guidelines for various age groups.

Want To Lower Blood Sugar

The recent study published in Current Developments in Nutrition acted as a follow-up to a 2019 study that associated green tea consumption with lower obesity, health risks, and improved gut health when tested on rats. In the new study, researchers evaluated the gut health of 40 participants (half with metabolic syndrome, half reported as healthy) after consuming the tea extracts for 28 days. After the 28 days, the participants then took a placebo in order to evaluate the differences. During the month of green tea consumption, researchers reported lower blood sugar levels for all participants, as well as decreased gut inflammation. They came to this conclusion after finding a reduction of pro-inflammatory proteins in fecal samples and a reduction of sugar ratios in urine.

Ways To Manage Your Blood Sugars

Every time you eat any kind of carbohydrate ­ — be it blueberries or a bagel — the starch gets broken into sugar as glucose, the type of sugar in your blood. In response, your body produces insulin, a hormone responsible for ushering that sugar into your cells, where it’s used for energy.
