Exploring Glycemic Variability in Diabetes

Diabetes is a condition that affects blood sugar levels, leading to chronic hyperglycemia and acute glucose fluctuations. To prevent complications, it is crucial to understand the role of glycemic variability, particularly the fluctuations between peak and nadir. High levels of glucose variability can activate oxidative stress, leading to complications. Glycemic variability refers to fluctuating blood […]

Controlling Blood Sugar Levels

Managing blood glucose levels (measured by HbA1c) is crucial to diabetes treatment including the blood sugars in the ‘Time-in Range’ (T.I.R). The target levels for HbA1c can vary based on factors such as existing health conditions, life expectancy, duration of the disease, and the ability to adhere to treatment. It’s important to note that aggressive […]
