Blood sugar means the monosaccharide (simple sugar) dissolved in the blood. More exactly, it is the glucose sugar or diabetic sugar. When the metabolism begins to drop, we need the help of insulin. Blood glucose in the circulatory system is converted into energy which the body needs.
In other words, the blood sugar glucose regenerates the blood cells and boosts the metabolism. It is important that one should maintain blood sugar glucose levels between 70 to 100 mg/dl. When it comes to treating type 2 diabetes, you should understand that you need right amount of insulin secretion to regulate glucose range.
