The medical and health communities are not certain what the blood sugar level (blood glucose level) of the healthiest people should be. According to the observations of some health practitioners, the healthiest long-lived people have a blood sugar level (and, again, it’s really blood glucose level) between 75 and 85. Between 75 and 85 would be an excellent blood sugar level for anyone who wishes to remain healthy. That’s not exact. It can exceed that, but this range gives you a frame of reference. If your lab tests are returned to you with a blood sugar level of 82 to 85, your body is very capable of handling the amount of carbohydrates and other sugar-converters that you consume.
