Blood Glucose Level

(En español: Nivel de glucosa en sangre)

Say: blud gloo-kose leh-vul

Blood glucose level is the amount of glucose in the blood. The body gets glucose, a sugar, from the food we eat. Glucose is carried, through the bloodstream, to all the cells in the body. Like gas for a car, glucose is fuel for the body's cells and gives them energy.
