How to control diabetes from Healthytips's blog

In a diabetic patient, what are the recommended blood glucose levels? "The first thing to note is that in people with diabetes, the objectives should be individualized according to the type of diabetes, associated diseases, age, duration, ..." Esteban Jódar, head of the Department of Endocrinology at the University Hospital Quirónsalud Madrid , explains to CuídatePlus Ruber Juan Bravo and Quirónsalud San José Hospital Complex. Blood Balance Formula

The main parameter is glycated hemoglobin ( HbA1c , the percentage of a protein in red blood cells that is bound to glucose), which in people without diabetes is less than 6.5 percent. For people with type 2 diabetes the overall goal is HbA1c less than 7 percent, although it may be stricter in younger patients and at low risk of, for example, hypoglycemia , or somewhat higher (up to 8 percent) in patients. with more age and more "ailments". The same for type 1 diabetes, where the overall goal is less than 7 percent HbA1c, but less than 7.5 percent may be acceptable based on age.

According to Jódar, “there are also capillary glucose targets (the one measured in the finger) between 80-130 before meals and less than 180 after meals . The goals in the case of gestational diabetes - the one that affects some pregnant women - are even more intense. ”
