Slightly elevated blood sugar tied to heart and kidney problems.


People who have slightly elevated blood sugar that’s not high enough for a diabetes diagnosis may still have a higher risk of heart and kidney disease than individuals with normal blood sugar, a U.S. study suggests. Reuters Health, 03/16/2018. (Also see Prevention of Diabetes)

The fact that we are all too podgy probably has something to do with it ,but I think there is more to it than that.  Processed foods and chemicals maybe.


I've managed to shed half a stone so far in a quest to get my glucose levels & BMI down.  Will have to wait for the next Hba1c (hemoglobin) test to know.


Not sure how much salad I can eat though before I start twitching like a rabbit.:wink:
