If you’ve recently been diagnosed with diabetes, pre-diabetes, or are simply concerned about developing diabetes (maybe due to your family history), you might have some questions about blood sugar.
Blood sugar is one of the most important elements of diabetes. And once you understand it, the better you will be at managing your condition, or avoiding a type 2 diagnosis altogether.

What does it feel like?
What is actually happening in your body when you’re experiencing either a low blood sugar or high blood sugar episode? And how exactly do hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia figure into the conversation?
In the video below, all of these questions are answered. Dr. Eric Berg explains, in an easy-to-understand way, what diabetes is and how and when your blood sugar experiences fluctuations. This is such an excellent explanation of how our bodies function. Even if you already have a pretty great understanding of diabetes, you might be surprised by some of what he has to say!
