Dr Oz: Tests to Save Your Life
Being healthy doesn’t have to be difficult. On today’s show, Doctor Oz gave you the simple tests that can possibly save your life, such as a Waist Size Test. The blood sugar test is a 30-second test that gives you a number you must know—your blood sugar level.
Dr Oz showed up at a party to surprise Michelle, one of his biggest fans.
In true fan fashion, when Doctor Oz showed up, Michelle and a few friends were watching The Dr Oz Show. After exchanging pleasantries, Dr Oz pulled out the finger stick for the blood sugar numbers. Normal resting blood sugar numbers should be under 100. Some of the people at the party had numbers ranging from 85-100. (That’s good!)
Then it was Michelle’s turn.
Before the test, Michelle admitted that her father was a diabetic. Dr Oz pricked Michelle’s finger and gave her number—it was 462! (Yes, you read that correctly.) Michelle’s numbers were over 4 times higher than what it should be.

Michelle needed urgent care. She went to the doctor immediately and was given pills to lower her levels. On the show, she told Dr Oz that she had lost 4 lbs and her blood sugar levels had dropped to 133. (She still wasn’t out of the woods, but it was a definite improvement.) Michelle told Dr Oz that she was now taking supplements and changing her diet to lower her current number.
