Is your blood sugar okay?
Like cholesterol and blood pressure, your blood sugar number can change without any warning signs. Keeping it in a healthy range can lower your risk for things like heart, eye, kidney and circulation problems. Work with your doctor. And learn the truth behind the common myths of high blood sugar and the three key ways to keep it in check.
WHAT DO YOUR NUMBERS MEAN? 
Your glucose number tells how much sugar is in your blood. It shows if you have diabetes or are at risk for it.
