Issues with Blood Sugar

Blood Sugar Issues

Are you someone who is constantly tired, fatigued, or complaining of low energy? Often crave sweets or carbs? Do you crash mid way through the day?

If you said yes to these questions you may have blood sugar issues.

If you control your blood sugar issues it can help with the problems described earlier. Also, it can help make you healthier and prevent health problems you may encounter in the future.

Blood Sugar Regulation:

Glucose, or blood sugar, is one of the main fuels of the body. We need it to function, but not in the excess amounts some diets may contain. The pancreas helps regulate blood sugar levels by releasing insulin. Once insulin is released it tells the body to take up glucose.

When glucose levels in the body are too HIGH, it can lead to serious health issues if it goes on for a long period of time (diabetes, atherosclerosis, circulation problems, etc.).

Standard American Diet (SAD):

 The American diet contains high levels of sugars, carbohydrates, and processed foods. Simple Carbohydrates (white bread, pasta, candy, soft drinks) are digested quickly and used for a quick burst of energy by the body. As the body adapts to this quick increased blood sugar by releasing insulin it can lead to sugar cravings.

What To Do:

  1. A good diet high in fiber & more complex carbohydrates will help keep you full & avoid these spikes in blood sugar that lead to cravings. Try a healthier diet that includes whole grains, vegetables, sweet potatoes, lentils, and turning to fruits when you have sweet cravings.
  2. Supplements: Chromium is said to help in carbohydrate metabolism. Fiber can help regulate the bowels & keep you feeling full.
  3. Exercise: Because it’s good for you!
  4. Hydrate: Be sure to get enough water!
