In this video, I want to talk about the most accurate method to determine your blood sugar levels.
A1C is not as accurate at blood glucose. Why? Because it does not measure your blood glucose levels directly. It only gives you a rough estimate of your blood glucose levels over three months. This is done by measuring the hemoglobin that is bound to glucose.
If you have anemia, your A1C test will be thrown off. Infections, kidney disease, liver disease, pregnancy, and numerous other factors can throw off your A1C measurements.
A1C tests will give you more of a general estimate, but they aren’t 100% accurate.
A normal blood sugar level will be around 80 mg/dl. If you’re a diabetic, you will have insulin resistance. This greatly affects blood sugar levels. Over time, keto and intermittent fasting can bring your blood glucose within a normal range (70-90 mg/dl).
You always want to consume healthy, nutrient-dense foods—particularly vegetables. This will help keep your blood sugar levels under control.
The best way to determine your blood sugar levels is to do a post-meal glucose blood test. After 1-2 hours, your blood sugar level should be under 120. Very healthy people will be under 100.
