Blood Glucose Levels

Blood glucose levels (BGL), sometimes referred to as blood sugar, refers to the amount of glucose in your blood. This glucose comes from whatever you eat and drink plus the stores of glucose that sit within your liver and muscles. When it comes to people with diabetes, BGLs can fluctuate a lot leading to hyperglycaemia (very high BGL) or hypoglycaemia (very low BGL). BGLs are measured in units called mmol/L (pronounced milli-moles-per-litre).
