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.

This is a story from Social Media: “This is personal struggle for my family and is a very important subject. I can’t say this will be my last post for a while, but maybe the last of many…. love you all! Certainly, in the most difficult moments of life you realize who are true friends or people who really appreciate you. Unfortunately, some friends will click “like” but they don’t really take time to read your status if they see it’s long. I have decided to publish this message to make people aware of the horrific byproducts of diabetes. The disease ruins your cardiovascular and renal systems…. And the drugs, like metformin, that are prescribed, may encourage the onset of dementia. Now I’m looking for those who will have time to read this post to the end. Diabetes is very invasive and destructive to our body, even after treatment, and medications your body is still struggling with yourself trying to regulate the spiking
/dropping of blood sugar levels all the time.. It’s a very long process.
Please, in honor of a family member or friend who has died, or continue to fight diabetes or even have diabetes themselves; copy and paste (not share) on your page.
So I’m gonna find out who reads my posts. Please write “done” in the comments”

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.
