Range of blood sugar level (credit to Melissa Conrad Stoppler)

Fluctuation in sugar level may be faced by both non-diabetic and diabetic patients on daily basis due to several factors:
- illness
- insulin level
- metabolic problems

So, what is normal range? General speaking, what we call as normal range of blood sugar level is from 70 mg/dL to 130 mg/dL.

Abnormal is a state where the level below or higher than normal range. The range of pre-diabetes and diabetes are following:
- 140 to 199 mg/dL, prediabetes range
- above 200 mg/dL, diabetes

Too lower or too higher if sugar level is under 54 mg/dL or above 400 mg/dL could be categorized as medical emergency.

Seizure is one of medical emergencies due to high or low blood sugar. But, seizure due to higher sugar is very rare.

In this post, we refer seizure to low blood sugar level which less than 30 mg/dL. Lower blood sugar means brain does not have glucose enough to make its function properly.

Unfunction brain due to decreasing of neuron cells in its, thus lead to seizure. Some signs of low sugar level could cause seizures are:
- anxiety
- confusion
- sweating
- mumbling
- drowsiness

Untreated seizure could cause loss consciousness, brain damages and even death. While in seizures, the immediate solution could be:
- drinking fruit juice
- eating high caloric snacks
- taking glucose tablets
- taking one spoon honey

  13. A family member suffers from seizures - not because of her blood pressure though. It is so devastating to her and the family. Anything you can do to avoid this one must.

  22. According to my doctor, anytime your blood sugar level drops below 45, you are starving and killing off brain cells. With a blood sugar level this low, I might take two spoons of honey (30 carbs or enough to boost you back to a B/S of 100 or so). Good information. It’s something I live with due to type 1 diabetes.
