Healthy Lifestyle – Human Body and Different Parameters

There are different Human body Parameters, which are to measured on monthly basis for healthy Life.

If somebody has high BMI or FAT, he/she is prone to Diabetes and Blood pressure related issue. Please refer my other blog for Diet plan on Obesity/Diabetes (Obesity and Diabetes – Solution and Diet Plan)

Following Parameters are to be measured.

Blood Sugar Level

Adult 20+ for Diabetes Patient

Fasting > Less than   100

Before Meal 70-130

After Meal (1-2 hrs) Less than 180

Before Exercise (if taking insulin) 100

Symptoms Pre-meal 2 hrs Post Meal

Pre-Diabetes 90-110 mg/dl 140-160 mg/dl

Blood Pressure – If slightly higher than normal i.e. 140/100 than dietary and lifestyle modification should be started. Herbal supplements are preferred.

Visceral fat is the deep abdominal fat that surrounds your organs. Even thin people can have dangerous levels of it. Some levels of visceral fat are normal and even healthy but too much can lead to insulin resistance, diabetes, heart disease, and inflammation.

Basal Metabolic Rate – The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) Calculator estimates your basal metabolic rate—the amount of energy expended while at rest in a neutrally temperate environment, and in a post-absorptive state (meaning that the digestive system is inactive, which requires about 12 hours of fasting). This calculator is based on the Mifflin – St Jeor equation.
