Do You Eat Too Much Sugar?
The Center for Disease Control says that about one-third of all people with diabetes do not know they have it.
Is diabetes something you are concerned about?
When you have diabetes in your family history you are more likely to give it your attention, and to be more conscious of your food choices. Though you probably eat more sugar than you think you do, whether you try to limit it or not.
If you don’t have signs of diabetes, you don’t have anything to worry about … or do you?
The real problem with diabetes is NOT glucose it is Insulin Toxicity!
Insulin toxicity is a contributing factor to many disease processes, but it is not even tested for if your glucose is not high.
You could have insulin toxicity for years before you have glucose issues!
If your doctor doesn’t even recognize your approaching signs of diabetes how can you?
Diabetes Symptoms That Should Concern You:
Type One Diabetes:
- Frequent urination
- Unusual thirst
- Extreme hunger
- Unusual weight loss
- Extreme fatigue and Irritability
Type Two Diabetes:
- Any of the type 1 symptoms
- Frequent infections
- Blurred vision
- Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
- Tingling/numbness in the hands/feet
- Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections
What can you do?
- Get plenty of fiber!
- Avoid processed foods, especially processed carbs like breads, muffins, pasta, white rice, and potatoes.
- Drink water, skip soft drinks!
- Remember that there isn’t a “healthy” sweetener. Moderation means use very little.
- Do not injest high fructose corn syrup. It is poison.
- Chromium may be of particular help with improving the way your body uses sugar.
Do ALL of the above!
It might surprise you to know that stress management is a major factor in managing your blood sugar.
It’s not just about the food you put in your mouth and your sedentary lifestyle.
You can eat great and get plenty of exercise and stress will still cause issue with your blood sugar!
Rest and recreation are extremely important for basic self care, but take on new found significance when you are healing.
You might not feel “sick”, but you need to think of your diabetes concern as a NEED to HEAL!
Take this very seriously because until you get your blood sugar under control you are feeding the inflammation that is causing all your chronic symptoms.
Changing your diet and improving the health of your bowel might feel overwhelming but so is treating diabetes with drugs and insulin!
Medical treatment for diabetes is NOT a cure. Avoiding medical treatment for diabetes is the only way to avoid harm!
Certainly high blood sugar and glucose toxicity can cause plenty of damage so you must treat them with drugs if you wait too long!
