Diabetes is a disease that involves an inability of the body to either produce enough insulin or use it efficiently to correctly regulate blood sugar levels. That is why diabetics must regularly monitor their blood sugar to ensure that it remains below 200 milligrams per deciliter when not fasting. If they fail to do that properly, they are at risk for big jumps in blood sugar levels and potential complications including damage to the kidneys, eyes, and nerves. But now, new research is offering evidence that these kinds of extreme fluctuations in blood sugar might be experienced by healthy people, too—at least with some people and in some circumstances.
The study, which took place at the Stanford University school of Medicine in California, found that blood sugar levels spike in some individuals who do not match the requirements for a diagnosis of diabetes and may even reach as high as the level that occurs in those with the condition.1 These results are based on an investigation that included 57 men and women, ranging in age from 25 to 76, who had no diagnosis of diabetes.
