Diabetes and the Gut
Do you know that the International Journal of Health Sciences reported that 246 million people worldwide are living with diabetes? Not only that there are so many people affected but the Journal anticipates that this figure would increase by 50% by 2025.
There is so much information on Diabetes that it is hard to overlook it, even social media is asking for support for those with Diabetes.
Some people say my father had it and I have it, it runs in the family. Diabetes is so dangerous that it could lead to all kinds of problems including cardiovascular disease, nerve damage, the loss of limbs, and kidney dysfunction. You know the pain of seeing your loved ones suffer with diabetes is overwhelming and you ask yourself what can I do to help.
Where does it start and can we do anything about it?
We now know everything starts in the gut. You can’t get sick without any relationship to what is going on in the gut. So your health is dependent on the health of your gut.
The body is made up of so many various processes and one is converting sugar into energy via insulin. You hear people talk about a sugar rush for energy. If the body cannot convert the sugar into the energy it disrupts the body functions and we end up with not enough insulin to convert the sugar into energy.
The excessive sugar – the birthday cakes, all the sweet stuff we like and savor could contribute to increased sugar levels which our body can’t deal with. We cannot forget those slices of bread which also contribute to our sugar levels. For me moderation is key. Your body tells you when you have had enough. You know the more sugar and flour you consume is the more the weight would pile up so why should you overindulge. Everything begins in the gut with what you eat or drink.
If you are like me love a sugar rush maybe it is time to try something new. Something that would allow you to enjoy the sweetness and help balance your sugar levels. This would be for those times when you want to sweeten your tea or coffee without the worry of raising your sugar levels. New product coming soon.
