Blood glucose level in fasting

Leave a Comment

Blood glucose level is said to be the amount of glucose present in blood at any particular time. The range of glucose varies at different time as it may be different after meal and during fasting. It depends on factors like age group, type of food eaten, is they doing physical activities, is they taking stress etc.

Here is some normal blood glucose level in fasting:

·         Younger children less than 6yrs must have 80 to180 mg/dl

·         Children at the age of 6 to 12 must have 80 to 180 mg/dl

·         People at the age of 13 to 18 must have 70 to 150 mg/dl

·         People of age group of 20 + must have less than 100mg/dl.

This is the normal blood glucose level of the person when they are on fasting or during fasting.

During fasting there is a slight drop down in blood glucose level of people due to no taking food on proper time. Glucose is nothing but simple sugar compounds. If we take food that help our body to get amount of sugar needed to our body. During fast our body uses the stored glucose and tries to make the blood level normal.

When the glucose drops down it leads to a condition called hypoglycemia in which people see symptoms like anxiety, confusion, dizziness, sweating etc.

When glucose level get high in body we face a disease that is lack of insulin in the body and which leads to diabetes.

So at the end its very important to maintain a good level of glucose in our body which can be achieved by healthy lifestyle which includes proper exercise and balanced diet.
