Here’s a Quick Way to Prevent Diabetes Through Blood Glucose Test

Having diabetes means having your pancreas affected by Type 2 diabetes. Our blood stream contains glucose, which is converted sugar from what we eat. As soon as it’s in our blood cells, the insulin secreted by the pancreas makes it a sort-of fuel which our body utilizes. If you have Type 2 diabetes, it will be difficult for you to produce and use this insulin. Your body’s cells have a hard time looking for this glucose even if it’s all over your body.

Type 2 diabetes is a serious condition, and because of that the American Diabetes Association is always looking for information about it. With 23.6 million individuals living with diabetes, many have come to associate America with extreme unhealthiness.90% of these patients are suffering from Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes and the issue of being overweight can be present in several members of a family. The nervous system and the internal organs might end up with irreparable damage if there is an overabundance of glucose in the body.

Life with Diabetes

The easiest and the most efficient way to treat your Type 2 diabetes is through healthy living practices on a daily basis. Among these practices include eating healthy and engaging in exercise. The healthy practices that you regularly do will have an enormous lasting and positive effect on you. To avoid health complications, many doctors have recommended that you ensure that the glucose levels in your body are within the appropriate range.

The blood glucose level in your body can easily be monitored simply by using the finger prick test. Such a test is as good as an HbA1c test when it comes to checking and tracking your glucose fluctuations. This HbA1c test is able to determine the levels of glycated hemoglobin in your body, as well as know if the glucose levels are on the high side. The average level which diabetics maintain, as per the A1c test results, are at seven percent. One can experience a 40% reduction in the possibility of developing risks if people simply ensure that their a1c levels are kept at seven percent.

An Iron Grip Control

If your a1c levels are below this seven percent mark, studies indicate that this could result into something bad. One particular study done in Lancet and Swedish Medical Center located in Seattle, showed that there is a higher death risk for people who use insulin regularly and those who have a1c median levels. On the contrary, there have been many tests that show that it is also healthy to keep your a1c levels at 7%. According to accredited endocrinologist Matt Davies, the seven percent maintaining level of a1c is all right; still, physicians need to consider their patient’s medical history even before they prescribe the treatment.

How to Make a Chocolate Cake in a Coffee Mug!

Do you like cake and sometimes just don't want to take a half hour or more to make one? I know I do. Here is a great recipe for a chocolate cake that only takes 3 minutes and only dirties a coffee mug, measuring spoon and a fork!

  • Coffee Mug (Large mug makes less mess - Small mug may overflow and make a small mess in your microwave)
  • 4 Tbsp of Flour
  • 4 Tbsp Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Baking Cocoa (You can also use the same amount of dry pudding mix if you don't want chocolate.)
  • 1 Egg
  • 4 Tbsp Milk
  • 3 Tbsp Oil (I use applesauce instead.)
  • Small Splash of Vanilla


  • Get any coffee mug of your choice.
  • Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well.
  • Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  • Pour in the milk and oil (applesauce) and mix well.
  • Add vanilla and mix again.
  • Put mug in the microwave for 3 minutes. The cake will rise over the top of the mug.
  • Allow to cool, then enjoy.

This was a great, yummy project for me and my 2 year old to do together. I added the ingredients and he stirred. He had so much fun watching it rise in the microwave and then of course there was a delicious end to it! As you can see, I used a large mug so it didn't fill the cup when it was done but it was plenty for the two of us!

Thanks to Jackie for passing this recipe along.

When you try this recipe, come back here and let me know what you thought of it!
