Guest Post: Are You Headed Towards Diabetes? Better. Read. This!

by lydia on December 5, 2013

Does diabetes just ‘happen’? That’s a question that is really worth talking about. I believe diabetes is a ‘lifestyle’ disease. Today I want to explore this further, and I’ve written a guest post to help people understand what leads to diabetes. IMBALANCED BLOOD SUGAR! Having balanced blood sugar is the KEY to good health as well as your ticket off the one way train towards diabetes.

 

‘Blood sugar dysregulation does not suddenly emerge. You cannot wake up one day with Type II diabetes and not have a clue that something is going wrong. Type II diabetes follows an insidious pattern of development and involves, to some extent, dysregulation in the three organs of sugar regulation: the endocrine pancreas, the liver, and the adrenal glands. These three organs work in harmony to regulate and normalize blood glucose levels across the day and night.’ (1)

It is estimated that more than one-third of the U.S. population has insulin resistance, which is a stepping stone to diabetes. Personally, I suspect it’s far higher than that. As a nutritional therapist, stabilizing blood sugar is the number one issue I deal with and usually the first thing I work on with all of my clients. Balanced blood sugar will help to manage one’s overall mood. When balanced you can expect to reduce anxiety, stress, confusion, brain fog, irritability and overall inflammation. You will find you sleep well, lose weight and have more energy. Having balanced blood sugar is the KEY to good health as well as your ticket off the one way street towards Diabetes. Let’s talk for a minute about what leads to Type 2 Diabetes – perhaps you will find yourself somewhere along the way.

The good news is, you CAN reverse Type 2 diabetes and lead a normal life. Find out how…..

Lydia, do you have any idea how to treat a liver that is stuck on gluceoneogenesis full on?

I’ve had T2 for 25 years, and controlled for a LONG time with low-carb, but after a pancreasitis attack, I lost control completely: as in bG remained above 300 with a week of fasting! My liver can make glucose out of air.

I can keep relatively decent control with insulin, but it is NOT physiological doses, but ridiculously high inflammatory doses… WAY more than a T1 would take.

At this point, I have to choose between inflammatory serum insulin or inflammatory glucose levels – even if I eat nothing…
