Your glucose level is the amount of sugar you have in your blood - also known as blood glucose level.
Normally, blood glucose levels stay within normal limits throughout the day. They are higher after meals and usually lowest in the morning. Blood glucose levels for people with diabetes move outside these limits until treated. Blood glucose levels that are constantly out of control (too high = hyperglycemia OR too low = hypoglycemia) should be treated as it may have serious short- and long-term health consequences.
Exercising regularly (30 min exercise on most days of the week) and eating healthily can help to control your blood glucose levels.2. How does your glucose level measure up?
