One tool you absolutely need to improve your health

Take your health seriously in 2019. Now, you may assume that I am about to suggest going for medical checkups regularly, exercising more often, dieting, etc. While these are great, there is a simple tool you could use to make the process much easier. This tool will guide your efforts, tell you which foods to cut down, and exercises to engage in.

The mystery tool I am referring to is a glucometer. Everyone needs to have this- whether you are diabetic, a child, healthy, skinny, plump, old, etc.  It could make all difference in whether or not you end up with Alzheimer's, diabetes or a heart attack that could kill you in an instant. 

A glucometer is a medical device that measures one's blood sugar levels. It tells you if you are insulin resistant (a condition that leads to most of the known chronic ailments such as Alzheimer's and even some forms of cancer). Insulin resistance refers to when the system responsible for monitoring the blood sugar levels is not working properly. 

Contrary to popular beliefs, insulin is a major hormone that affects the metabolism of almost every cell in the body and when something goes wrong, it could even cause psychiatric disorders. 

Therefore, having a glucometer at home keeps you on your toes, let's you know what your normal blood sugar level is and helps you identify red flags once they appear. 

The following shows you what readings should be and how to interpret them. From it, you can also tell that you should check your sugar levels before and after eating. 

Fasting (before you eat) 

Healthy  70-110 mg/dL

Pre-diabetic 110-126 mg/dL

Diabetic  >126 mg/dL

One hour after meals

Healthy <140 mg/dL

Pre-diabetic 140-200 mg/dL

Diabetic >200 mg/dL

Once it gets to pre-diabetic or diabetic, you should definitely consult a doctor and be informed of appropriate measures.
