Zadius Sky said:Shouldn't my Glucose, Serum level be at zero? It's at 96 mg/dL (it's the first time that I had my glucose checked), which made me think I've been consuming sugar lately without knowing about it (since I've only been eating meats with a few veggie - could be that Pork Rind thing). I'm gotta have to look into it (added: and going back to reading the health books on this).
Absolutely not, your glucose is perfectly normal. From a diabetic point of view: The glucose should neither be too low (about 45mg/dl) nor too high (like 400mg/dl). Above or below both ranges can be dangerous and your body would show symptoms too. Like too low: shaking, sweating and ravenous hunger to get sugar inside your body to raise the level again. Also in your liver is naturally glucagon stored and is the counterpart of insulin. Also when in ketosis proteins get transformed into glucose via gluconeogenesis if I remember it correctly.
