The Importance Of Blood Sugar Testing

Most people associate blood sugar testing with those diagnosed with diabetes. However, getting your blood sugars tested in Saint Petersburg is wise, even if you are not diabetic. Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic is here to help regardless of your reasons for testing.

Your Body and Blood Sugar Regulation

For someone without diabetes, the body naturally works to regulate sugar levels in the blood. Once you eat a meal, the body digests the foods into components that get absorbed into the gut and bloodstream. Carb-based foods like starches, fruit, and fair get broken down into mainly glucose. After high glucose levels get detected in the blood, the pancreas puts out insulin that helps the body trigger the response for absorbing the glucose from the blood. This lowers the levels to normal.

Should blood sugars be too low, insulin levels drop, and glycogen gets released. This leads the liver to seek out stored glycogen to turn it back into glucose and then put it out into the blood, helping the blood sugars return to normal.

If you have diabetes, regular blood sugar testing is crucial to keep your levels within normal range. Not only that, but testing before a meal helps show how consumed foods affect blood sugar levels.

Should you notice issues with your testing and monitoring at home, it is vital to seek help from trained medical professionals. Our Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic team is here to assist whenever you or someone in your household needs blood sugar testing. Whether you are dealing with high or low blood sugar, we can provide the testing and answers you need to get back on track and offer peace of mind.

We Love Our Customers!

I’ve been going to CC, a Nurse Practitioner, Denise, and Sarah, at Dr. Kaszuba’s office for a long time now. I just want to say how I love this office. I found out about the office when I took an elderly patient here for her visit. They were so welcoming, I decided to switch to them for my doctor even though I live in Pinellas Park. I’ve always received the best care here.

The team at the front office is amazing I appreciate how nice Sarah has been with helping me with my appointments. The whole team does a great job and really care. Cassie Thomas

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.
