If your blood glucose is in the red often, you may be a person diagnosed with diabetes. When your body doesn’t produce the correct amount of the hormone insulin you are considered a diabetic. Doctors can tell you about your blood sugar level, if it exceeds 110 mg/dl, you officially have hyperglycemia.
So without the islet cells producing insulin, the sugar stays in the blood starving the muscles and you get muscle wasting and fat loss.

Some monitors can store the glucose readings for you in their memory. This means that they have an internal memory, and they will store your reading. If your doctor has advised you to keep a tab on your readings, several times in the day, then it will be very convenient for you to save the readings in the device itself. In case your diabetes is at a very early stage, and it is not really required for you to test so many times a day, then you will not need an appliance with memory. Normally the glucose monitors with internal memory are a bit expensive.

While the result of Type 2 is the same – high blood sugar – the cause is completely different. Type 2 results primarily from an excessively high carbohydrate diet over many years combined with a lack of physical activity. The carbohydrates (sugar and starch) become sugar in your blood. To handle that sugar, your islet cells make insulin as I described above and the sugar is removed by your fat, liver and muscle cells.
