BG Match Game

Scott Benner

Arden’s Blood Glucose (BG) level is the main focus of our day-to-day existence.  Not too high, not too low, always trying for just right.  A person with a properly functioning pancreas has a BG of around 100-110.  Arden’s target range is 100-150 right now.

I checked Arden’s blood glucose 11 times yesterday and each time I checked I took her picture.  See if you can match her picture with her blood glucose level.  

After everyone is finished, I’ll makes some points based on your experiences matching her face to her level.  Please come back to this page and leave your “score” with the Add aComment button when you are finished.

Okay so I waited less then one day and then I tried to play the game... I got 3 correct and that is only because I remembered the BG from the picture.  

The moral of this story???

I only got 3 right as well, I hoped my diabetes would give me a edge. Mebbe if my wife plays she'll do better. I think the moral is you can't tell just by looking what a blood sugar is. The only real sign I know of is a change in behavior, more surly when high & silly when low, but that seems to bethe norm for small kids. So unless she's screaming about the llamas, testing is the only way to gage
