Blood glucose levels indicate the glucose amount that a person has in their blood. Having low or high blood sugar levels may be an indication of underlying health conditions that might necessitate medical attention.

Blood sugar levels are often low, high, or normal, which will depend on the amount of glucose the person has in their blood at any given time. Glucose is one of the simple sugars and is always present in your bloodstream. Normal blood glucose levels are typically measured when a person eats, fasts, or directly after they have eaten.

A normal level in adults that do not suffer from diabetes, and have not eaten for the last 8 hours (fasting), is under 100mg/dL. Normal blood glucose levels in adults that do not suffer from diabetes, 2 hours after they have eaten should be 90 to 110mg/dL.

All About Cholesterol: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

We often hear people saying “Don’t take too much cholesterol!” or “I need to control my cholesterol” or “Ah there’s too much cholesterol in this food, this is bad!”, but what actually is cholesterol? And is it really all bad? Is there such a thing as good cholesterol?

Let us start with the basics. Cholesterol is a waxy substance made naturally by your liver that is used by your body to build cells. There is also dietary cholesterol– which is present in the food and drinks you consume. So cholesterol itself is not really a bad thing because it is important for your body to function normally, but you don’t want too much of it in your bloodstream. Consuming food with high cholesterol may cause your liver to send excess cholesterol into your bloodstream that it doesn’t need! Even The Muslim Apologist controls his cholesterol intake as it is important for good health and quality living.

So, yes, controlling your cholesterol intake is important and it starts with consuming the right cholesterol for you.
