Briefly not to explain that such diabetes. It develops when the pancreas makes insufficient amount of insulin that leads to various changes in an organism, including to increase of level of sugar in blood.

Regular definition of level of sugar in blood is a measure for the prevention of emergence of diabetic complications. Very difficult successfully to operate the diabetes, without supervising the house sugar level in blood. For such here house conditions exist portable глюкометры, allowing to recognize result in some seconds. For this purpose there is enough blood drop (from a finger or a shoulder) which is located on the disposable plate attached to the device.

Frequency of measurements depends on a set of factors: such as diabetes (insulinozavisimy, insulinonezavisimy), age of the person, a way of life, etc. Here it is impossible to rely on health since the organism gets used to the raised level of glucose, the person can feel well, but there will be a danger of the hidden development of complications. As a rule, sugar level in blood define from several times a day to several times a week. At change of a habitual way of life (physical activities, travel, various diseases, a deviation from a diet) are required additional measurements.

In our organism constantly there is that increase of sugar in blood (after food), fall (after the pancreas allocated insulin in blood). Thanks to such regulation, sugar level in blood at healthy people keeps within 3,3 – 5,5 mmol/l on an empty stomach and to 7,8 mmol/l after food. Laziness to read? Then listen!
