Blood Glucose Calculator

Usually, the amount of glucose in your blood remains stable post a meal as your pancreas release insulin; however, if you are a diabetic, either your body does not produce insulin (DM type 1) or cannot effectively use the insulin produced (DM type 2). Increased levels of glucose in your blood for a prolonged period of time can cause many health problems including heart disease, eye, kidney, and nerve damage.
