Some people have high blood sugar levels, and it’s not actually dangerous. Let me explain.
Having high blood sugar levels due to consuming high amounts of refined sugar and carbs is different than having high blood sugar from normal physiological processes.
High blood sugar that occurs because of a physiological reason won’t create the damage that pathological high blood glucose can.
An A1C test measures your average blood glucose levels over three months. If you have physiological high blood glucose, your A1C won’t be elevated. But, if you have high blood glucose derived from the wrong diet, your A1C will be elevated.
It’s important to consider all the different factors when you check your blood glucose.
Surprising causes of high blood glucose:
• Mental stress
• Dawn phenomenon
• Lack of sleep
• Artificial sweeteners
• Excess caffeine consumption
• Jet lag
• Intense exercise
• Menstrual cycle
• Certain medications
• Prolonged fasting
• Low sodium
Top things that can affect the results of your blood glucose test:
• Using expired testing strips
• Having wet or dirty fingers
• Having sugar on your fingers
• Extreme temperatures
• What you ate or drank just before you tested
If you have high blood sugar, the most crucial thing to do is get on the right eating plan. Learn about the Healthy Keto® diet in my other video.
