Your glucose levels changes every time you eat. Blood sugar (also called blood glucose) is the amount of glucose in the blood at any given time. The sugar in your blood gives your cells the energy they need. Maintaining healthy glucose levels is essential to your health.
High blood sugar after eating can cause type 2 diabetes in the long term. How fast your blood sugar rises or falls has to do with your DNA, your microbiome and the context in which you eat. This is unique for everyone. For example, the reaction to a banana is different for everyone.
How can you be sure that what you eat is precisely what your body needs? You need to know exactly how your body responds to nutrition.
Food contains carbohydrates, fats, proteins and other micronutrients. These cause reactions in your body that we can measure via glucose and triglyceride values. An imbalance of these values after eating a meal causes a risk for developing diabetes, cardiovascular disease or other diseases.
