Blood Sugar Premier

by hilda xavier (2020-09-17)

Glucose is the sugar present in the blood, as well as it is found in high concentrations in some food groups such as fruits. The word glucose is a derivative of the Greek word glykózi which means sweet. When the levels of this molecule in the blood are normal, the metabolism is in optimal state. Having high or low levels can be a serious problem especially for people with diabetes. The hormone insulin is responsible for transporting glucose through the blood. This molecule is then stored or used as a source of energy for the proper functioning of the body. People with diabetes lose their normal glucose transport capacity; and therefore blood levels are altered. Blood Sugar Premier
