Normal Blood Sugar Levels are provided in the Blood Glucose Chart. A simple diabetes blood test using diabetes test strips allows for continuous blood glucose monitoring at home.
How do you check your blood glucose level?
Put blood from a finger prick on a diabetes test strip. Blot off excess blood with a tissue. Read the glucose test strip either by comparing the colour with the colour chart on the test strip bottle or by using an electronic blood glucose meter. It is important to follow the instructions on the bottle or meter carefully.
When should you check your diabetes blood sugar levels?
For Diabetes Mellitus type 2 (usually controlled by diet for diabetes and diabetes medicine, or by diet alone), 2-3 times each week at different times of the day is enough.
For Diabetes Mellitus type 1 (which requires insulin), more regular checking is required; that is, at least once a day, usually first thing before breakfast and then about 2 hours after a meal.
Your blood glucose levels are likely to be low before meals and high 2 hours after meals.
Stress, illness or too much food will push your blood glucose level up and you can get high blood sugar readings.
Exercise and your diabetes medications will pull your blood glucose level down.
When you are ill or under a lot of stress or exercising more than usual, you may need to check your blood sugar levels more often than usual.
What are the Ideal Blood glucose levels? 理想的血糖水平是多少？
Ideal or normal blood sugar levels are 3-6 mmol/L before meals and 3-7 mmol/L 2 hours after meals.
Fair control is a blood sugar level range of 6-8 mmol/L before meals and 7-10 mmol/L after meals.

Daily bread - Can any human body handle gluten? Dr. Rodney Ford | TEDxTauranga
Gluten – friend or foe?
This was the talk that got the standing ovation and changed everyone’s eating habits for the rest of evening. Over the course of 15 minutes Dr. Rodney Ford, MB. BS. MD. FRACP, and a pioneer in the field of paediatric food allergies, convinced an audience of 500 that nobody is equipped to digest gluten. How did he do it? By using lego! Dr. Ford showed us the indigestible gluten protein is chased by the antibodies that our systems create to combat the gluten. Based on decades of research, Dr. Ford believes that abundant health can be achieved by anyone who eats the appropriate foods.
Dr Rodney Ford, MB. BS. MD. FRACP, is a paediatrician and former Associate Professor in the Department of Paediatrics at Christchurch Clinical School. He is a specialist in food allergy and gastroenterology at the 'The Children's Clinic and Allergy Centre', Christchurch, New Zealand. Rodney's philosophy is “diet: not drugs” as he has seen too many people given medications for symptoms without first considering the possibility of food allergy or food intolerance. Rodney has been investigating adverse reactions to gluten for over 20 years and these illnesses have now been labelled “Gluten-related disorders” or Gluten Syndrome, with world-wide evidence accumulating that gluten may not be healthy for us all. Dr. Ford's current goal is to bring communities up-to-date about the harmful effects of gluten.
