Now there are two different thoughts of controlling it. Here's a post on “These Signs Your Blood Sugar Is Too High” to help you understand how it works and how to catch it early.
- On the one hand.
- The other way of dealing with it is to reduce the sugar and the carbohydrates to take away the thing that caused the problem in the first place.
You can take a drug to try to push the blood sugar down something like metformin or insulin etc or you can reduce the cause, you can undo the cause which means you start eating less sugar and carbohydrates, and which one would be the better way. Well, let's think about this. If you watch some of my videos, you know, some of this already, but let's quickly recap that if you have a high carb diet, you get high blood sugar, you get insulin resistance and then you treat the blood sugar, you reduce the blood sugar then you're helping the body get the blood sugar out of the bloodstream and into the cells which mean you're promoting the storing mechanism, you're promoting the clogging mechanism.
And now we're pushing the body into metabolic syndrome. What is metabolic syndrome? It is a cluster of conditions including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance, diabetes stroke, etc. So if you maintain the high carb diet and you treat to lower the blood sugar, you're moving the body towards metabolic syndrome. So it's like you're out of the ashes and into the fire.
I know that's a novel thought but believe me, it works. Now, if you take a low sugar, low carb diet, now you're going to lower the blood glucose, you're going to lower the insulin and the body will be restored to health.
So I'll let you pick which model you prefer but I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to figure that one out. What if we do something even smarter? What if we don't wait for any of these to happen? What if we decide that I'm not gonna wait 20 years for these problems to develop?
I want to do something today to make sure that they never happen. Alright. And that is so simple. It is so simple. You measure your blood sugar, how about that? And it's amazing to me that we have millions of people with diabetes and prediabetes who have no idea. And all it takes is a little prick in the finger. Little blood drop and you can measure and you can find out exactly where you're at and if you measure it now you can save decades.
You don't have to go through this. You don't have to watch any of these steps develop. You measure the blood sugar that you can do for yourself. You go to the lab, you measure your A1C and your fasting insulin and now you have a picture. now, You know exactly where you stand in relation to this and if you don't have a problem then make sure you don't develop one. If you're starting to get a problem then learn how to develop a low carb diet lifestyle so that you can reverse these changes before they turn into these terrible signs.
