Leveling Your A1C Sponsored by Support from Morrison Healthcare, an Operating Division of Compass One
What if you could measure the state of your health over the past 3 months, then use the results as motivation to live healthier?
Your blood sugar levels are a good indicator of your overall health. Everyone, including those without diabetes, should care about their blood sugars — they’re often spiked by some surprising things, like sunburn, coffee, dehydration, or losing sleep!
One test that measures those levels — the A1C test — can provide more detail on your blood sugars, as well as determine if you have type 1 or 2 diabetes, or are at risk of developing it. For those who already have diabetes, A1C is a critical monitoring system that measures the effectiveness of your on-going diabetes treatment.
Even if you don’t have diabetes or prediabetes, your daily lifestyle impacts your blood sugar levels (and your health). Out-of-whack blood sugars can cause:
- Increased risk of stroke
- Extreme thirst
- Higher risk of heart disease
- Fatigue and lack of energy
- Pancreas malfunction
- Damaged blood vessels and nerves
- High blood pressure
But there’s good news! Leveling your A1C doesn’t require overwhelming, over-the-top lifestyle changes. It’s about simple, healthier daily choices that every person — regardless of their blood sugar levels — should follow.
Those lifestyle choices include:
- Nutritious diet
- Exercise and weight loss
- Stress relief
- Healthy sleep
