Managing blood sugar levels is a long term approach to keep fit and avoid complications. A recent study published in The New England Journal of Medicine has found that blood sugar control has worsened among adults in the US in the past decade..The study observed the frequency of medical check-ups and follow-up among people between the years 1999-2018. In the late 90s, the trend to check health parameters started owing to rapid scientific advancement and improved guidance from healthcare professionals.This trend saw a greater momentum between2007-2011 but declined between 2015-2018. In the early 2000s people used to frequently check their health parameters such as blood sugar levels, body weight, blood pressure and lipid levels. The decline in testing has significantly increased the number of Diabetes diagnoses. The study has concluded that very tight control on blood sugar levels may lead to hypoglycaemia but its fear may cause a lag in control and may lead to more people being diagnosed with Diabetes and other complications. Consult your physician to better understand how to manage your health parameters.
