Caption: Testing blood sugar levels by taking a sample of blood, applying a test strip for glucose in the blood and measuring the reaction against a chart. 180 milligrams per 100 millitres of blood, or above shows high blood sugar levels. Blood testing is a preliminary procedure before injecting insulin. The form of diabetes portrayed here is diabetes mellitus, an inability of the body to use sugar in the blood as a source of energy due to a lack of insulin (hormone) responsible for controlling blood sugar levels. Instead the sugar is passed out with urine.
