What is blood sugar?

Blood sugar (glucose) is the concentration of sugar in our blood at a specific point in time. When we consume carbohydrate-containing foods, these carbohydrates are broken down and absorbed into the bloodstream. In their simplest form, as glucose, they are sent to the liver to be stored or sent into circulation.

When we eat carbohydrates, our blood sugar will rise shortly after. However, it is important that we keep this blood sugar concentration within a tight window, and so a hormone known as insulin is released from the pancreas. This activates our cells to uptake this simple sugar (glucose) from the blood, to reduce the levels.

What is insulin and why is it important?

How is blood sugar measured?

Plasma glucose is the concentration of sugar in your blood, excluding the cellular components (red and white blood cells). The most common test is the fasted plasma glucose test where individuals fast for at least eight hours and then have their blood analysed. As you can imagine, if someone's blood sugar is exceptionally high after eight hours of fasting, there is a problem with their ability to control blood sugar.
