Blood sugar is only something diabetics need to worry about, right? Nope. In fact, failing to monitor and balance your blood sugar could lead to diabetes down the line. Blood sugar also isn’t just a term used by your hypochondriac friend or that really finicky family member who insists on eating at the exact same times every day, and forces everyone to accommodate their schedule. Actually, that family member may be finicky, but they are also onto something—perhaps we should all be that militant about our eating times. Blood sugar is nothing to mess around with. Perhaps in your younger years you could get away with not eating food for 16 hours at a time, but if you keep up that behavior in your thirties and beyond, you could have a public fainting episode coming your way. Here is why you should care about stabilizing your blood sugar.
So you don’t faint
As if fainting isn’t a terrifying enough experience, consider what would happen if you fainted and hit your head on something? Or if you fainted when nobody was around to help you? Letting your blood sugar drop too low can lead to dangerous fainting spells.
