Blood Sugar Goals

Blood Sugar Goals
Transcript

People’s blood sugar goals vary a lot. For some people, we like blood sugars to be as close to normal as possible. But other people – especially people who are older, have other medical problems, are taking a lot of other medications – we’re happy with their blood sugars being a little bit higher. The whole purpose of controlling blood sugar is to prevent long term complications. What happens on a day-to-day basis doesn’t matter as much as what happens long term. Younger, healthier people can have lower blood sugar goals. As people age, we back off a little bit on what those goals can be. If you have diabetes, you really need to talk to your doctor about what those goals should be.
