Glucose is the kind of sugar that circulates in the blood.

For example, lactose (sugar found in milk), is a disaccharide (ie two linked sugar molecules) made up of one glucose molecule and one galactose molecule. Galactose is almost like glucose, but it will be changed into glucose in the liver and then released into the blood. All carbohydrates, including starches and grains, eventually get broken down and converted into glucose molecules, which are then released into the blood.

Glucose is sugar and you need it in your body(blood) to keep you running which is why we say blood sugar levels and if you are diabetic your blood sugar levels are wrong

No. Glucose is a type of sugar and should not be taken if blood sugar is too high. This would only serve the increase blood glucose levels.

Glucose levels depend on the amount of sugar in the blood. High blood sugar means you have eaten too much sugar, and vice versa for low blood sugar. Diabetics have to watch their glucose levels carefully.

No, it is not. It is the amount of sugar (glucose) in your blood. This is controlled by various hormones.

Another name for blood sugar is called the blood glucose level. Usually when insulin levels are high the blood glucose level rises.

Insulin acts to increase glucose uptake into cells decreasing blood sugar. Glucagon acts to stimulate glucose release from the liver, increasing blood sugar.
