It has been said by many health practitioners that we are raising the first generation of Americans to live sicker and die younger than their parents. Almost 30 percent of diabetics over the age of 40 have impaired sensation in their feet.  This often leads to amputations. Over the next decade it is estimated that direct health care costs will be over $3.4 trillion dollars for issues that are related to diabetic and pre-diabetic conditions. Insulin resistance happens when one consumes too many empty calories from soda and sugary drinks along with eating too many refined carbohydrates like pasta, potatoes, bread, and the like.  The result is that your cells become resistant or another way of putting it, your cells become numb to the effects of insulin.
Worsening insulin resistance symptoms include the loss of muscle, the increase of fat storage, inflammation, rapid aging and overall bodily deterioration.

Your blood glucose level, or blood sugar level, refers to the concentration of sugar (in the form of glucose) in your blood.
As such, insulin stores nutrients right after a meal by reducing the concentrations of glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids in the bloodstream.
At very high concentrations, generally above the maximum levels found in the body, glucagon can act on fat cells to break down fats into fatty acids and glycerol, releasing the fatty acids into the bloodstream. Epinephrine, cortisol, and growth hormone are other hormones that help maintain blood glucose levels.
In a healthy individual, the hormonal interactions and adjustments (of insulin and glucagon) maintain a fairly constant and optimal blood glucose level. Insufficient insulin and insulin resistance are associated with diabetes mellitus and can cause severe hyperglycemia. Hypoglycemia, or low blood glucose, is typically considered less serious than hyperglycemia unless the hypoglycemia is present in a patient with diabetes. Author's Note: When I was diabetic, I never received a consistent answer concerning what is "normal"?
Unfortunately, some diabetics don't like to test because of the frustration and anxiety associated with the readings. First of all, whether you're diabetic or non-diabetic, it is normal for your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels to vary throughout the day and night.
Note: You've probably noticed that these numbers are different depending on who you talk to or what website you visit. In those cases, you may become pre-diabetic or diabetic if the very high or very low readings persist over a period of years.
One more key point from the author: I found that the more readings I took, the better I could interpret the data and draw good conclusions. During long, intense workouts the body may release adrenaline which counteracts the efforts of insulin. Note: As depicted in the following diagram, after eating a meal, blood glucose is produced, stored and distributed to the liver, brain, kidneys, muscles and cells throughout the body.
Key Message: If you want to reverse and defeat your diabetes, you must do more than just control your blood sugar! Poor Dieting: Nutrition and meal planning are the foundation of effective diabetes management. Lack of Consistent Exercise: Exercise is another important factor in effective diabetes management because of its effect on lowering blood glucose and reducing cardiovascular risks factor. Other Concerns: On the other hand, when it comes to health care providers, effective behavior intervention can only be attained if we understands why, how and when the patient fail to engage in optimal diabetes self-management behavior.
There are other environmental concerns that would affects the patient's ability to appropriate self care.

Note: Do not rely strictly on supplements to fight and defeat your diabetes -- eat wholefoods! The Super Meal Model Diet for Diabetics is simply a method of defining superior foods that have a positive effect on your blood sugar level, blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and other health areas. Super foods include bright-colored vegetables, green vegetables, bight-colored fruits, beans, legumes, cold-water fish (i.e. A comprehensive list of super foods can be found in Chapter 7 of the Death to Diabetes book or the Super Foods PDF. Some of the herbs include gymnema sylvestre, bitter melon, American ginseng, Chinese cinnamon, fenugreek, ginger, prickly pear and turmeric.
If not then take up a hobby, play an instrument or listen to music, learn how to release those bottled up emotions, take up self defense or boxing (if it makes you feel better).
Unfortunately, many of us choose drugs as our first option because drugs are convenient, and we mistakenly believe that the drugs give us a free pass such that we can continue to stuff our mouths with the junk food that's killing us.
In the meantime, your diabetes gets worse because the drugs aren't really doing anything to fight the diabetes. Then, it's just a matter of time before you begin dealing with the complications of diabetes.
Unfortunately, after a period of years, your doctor eventually puts you on insulin because the pills have lost their effectiveness. Author's Note: I know this is hard to believe, but, think about it: Have you ever heard of anyone really getting better once they started taking the pills?

Note: For information about blood glucose testing, refer Chapters 11 and 14 of Death to Diabetes, and this web page, or get the Diabetes Management workbook. Note: Read Chapter 11 of the Death to Diabetes book or get the Power of Blood Glucose Testing PDF to learn how to use testing to control and even reverse your diabetes. The excess insulin also inhibits fat metabolism, and, consequently, your body can't burn fat and lose weight the right way. Key Point: Diabetic drugs artificially lower your blood glucose level, but your pancreas is still working overtime producing excess insulin. Don't focus too much on losing weight -- unless you're losing the right type of weight, i.e.

Your morning meal is fortified with nutrients that your body needs to function healthily each day.
Making sure to get breakfast in your system does more than keep you awake — it promotes a healthy heart by preventing diabetes and lowering blood pressure. Instead of loading up on a heavy dinner, start your day off with a grand meal at breakfast time. To fight the common wintertime colds and flus, you need to sit down and eat your breakfast. While eating breakfast alone will not help you magically shed the pounds, it may help your emotional relationship with food (and that invariably affects your weight). A balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fiber is the key to any healthy breakfast, and eating foods with these components will increase your energy levels.
An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but a healthy breakfast may keep the reaper at bay, too.
Diabetes Diet spells out in easy to read terms just what causes diabetes and how best to treat diabetes.

ShareWhen you mention the word smoothie, most people think straight away of fruit smoothies. Most people consume too many carbs as it is, leading to additional weight gain, sluggishness and insulin issues.
For breakfast, carbs, and especially sugary ones are a real no-go for anyone who wants sustained energy. You see your body has been fasting over night (hence the word Break-Fast) your blood sugar levels are low, and you body has been in recover & repair mode. You’re much better off eating protein with breakfast as it will keep you fuller for longer, and will not give you this sugar hit. Think various forms of eggs on wholemeal or rye bread, omelette, my legendary protein pancakes, even a protein shake if you’re in a rush, but aim to eat something further within 90mins. Power breakfast, full of energy will keep you full for the morning, and won’t build your love handles up!

When my legs begin to cramp up in the middle of the night, it is quickly relieved when I take a little magnesium.
Every time you eat food, your body has the task of breaking that food down into a usable form of energy it can use to keep you functioning properly. Insulin is required by almost all of the body's cells, but its major targets are liver cells, fat cells,  and muscle cells.
When something interrupts this glucose homeostasis, a person may experience blood glucose levels outside the normal range for a healthy person. In such cases, the hypoglycemia can mean an overdose of administered insulin or oral medication, which can lead to dangerously low blood glucose levels. So whether you're diabetic or not, it is normal for your blood sugar to rise, especially after eating a meal or during a stressful event. The normal process for blood sugar would be to be absorbed by cells (via insulin) for utilization or storage.
Refined carbohydrates like cakes, cookies, bread, and soft drinks are metabolized quickly and cause high levels of blood sugar.
Exercise lowers blood glucose level by increasing the uptake of glucose by body muscles and by improving insulin utilization. There would be possible reasons such as: lack of knowledge and skills about the disease, financial concerns, lack of patient motivation. This could be conflict among the family members that may undermine the given diabetes management. Superior (or super) foods contain the critical micronutrients that the body needs to fight the diabetes and repair the damage to the cells and organs caused by the diabetes. Excess insulin triggers the production of more triglycerides and fat cells, and, consequently, more weight gain, leading to obesity.
But, when you control your blood glucose with a proper diet, this lowers the production of iinsulin by the pancreas. Nutrients like folate, iron, B vitamin, fiber, and other essentials are only gained through food, and while the body can always use its stored recesses to make it to the next meal, that initial burst of essentials is never provided without eating breakfast. Those who skip breakfast tend to have higher cholesterol levels, a major risk factor for heart disease.
Doing so may help prevent metabolic syndrome disorders like obesity and insulin resistance. Breakfast literally means breaking the fast, and is necessary in order to jump-start your body. A study in the Netherlands showed that eating a substantial breakfast boosts your body’s gamma-interferon, a natural antiviral that directly activates immune cells.
Prolonged fasting can increase your body’s insulin response, which increases fat storage and weight gain. Studies show that people who lived to be 100 years old were consistent breakfast eaters, or consumed breakfast more often than non-breakfast eaters. This website should be used to support rather than replace medical advice advocated by physicians. When there is no fibre (the skin) involved such as a smoothie, it’s like a shot of liquid sugar. I also didn’t know that numbers much lower than these are what start the process of illness in the body. Did you know that gaining just 11 to 16 pounds doubles your risk for getting type 2 diabetes?

It is being used as a thickener in cottage cheese, soy milk, ice cream, yogurt as well as other processed foods. I try to maintain magnesium levels at all times as it also helps to keep my bowels regular.
All foods are (generally) made up of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, fiber and water.
Hyperglycemia, or high blood glucose, can occur when the pancreas produces insufficient insulin or when cells are resistant to insulin. Individuals with diabetes will need to dramatically change their diet and lifestyle; otherwise, they may have to take insulin injections or oral medications to control their high blood glucose.

Less serious cases can occur because of fasting, overexertion, or some metabolic condition. So "normal" varies from person to person depending on your health state, but, as an engineer, I found that too confusing. On the surface, you may think that Person A is better off because his average is lower than Person B's.
As a result, when I had one high reading out of 20 versus 1 high reading out of 5, I wasn't overly-concerned with the one high reading. As the carbs in food break down, glucose is released into the bloodstream ready to be absorbed by cells. Exercise provides many benefits to your body, including burning excess sugar and reducing insulin resistance (by making cells more receptive to insulin, so rather than requiring more insulin to facilitate glucose uptake, the insulin you already have becomes a bit more effective). People often talk about the "dawn phenomenon" with regard to diabetes, where your blood sugar level spikes in the mornings as a result of the body releasing hormones which increase insulin resistance. Obviously, the medication you take regulates your blood sugar level and therefore your readings during the day, depending on when you took the medication. The best foods for diabetics should include complex carbohydrates such as vegetables and beans which raise sugar more slowly and can keep it at an appropriate level for longer period of time.
The patient may also have some beliefs and attitudes that affects the overall self care management.
There is the possibility that the patient may be having specific psychological or psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety or eating disorders that impair effective diabetes management. If you focus more on having steady BG readings, the weight loss will occur naturally because your body will be producing LESS INSULIN. Once you are able to control your insulin levels via better BG control, the easier it will be to lose weight (fat). After a night of fasting, your brain needs a fresh supply of glucose (blood sugar) for fuel. Breakfast eaters tend to get less fat and more fiber in their diets, which leads to less overeating and fewer unhealthy snacks between meals.
A study in the International Journal of Obesity examined the type of foods and specific timing of consumption that resulted in metabolic syndrome characteristics in mice. An Australian study found that 13-year-old girls who did not eat breakfast were on average more dissatisfied with their body shape and had undergone more diet regimens then those who broke the fast with regular morning meals. Lutein, a carotenoid antioxidant found in eggs, helps to preserve the skin’s elasticity and protects skin cells from free radical damage. Breakfast also helps to prevent overeating and attempts to sate desperate hunger with quick fixes like doughnuts and vending-machine snacks. Breakfast was found to supply around 25 percent of people’s daily energy expenditure, thus leading to a high-functioning day.
Also, those who eat breakfast regularly are less likely to develop fatal habits like smoking and excessive drinking. Excess carbohydrates or sugars, promote fat storage on your love handle area – want to rid these, cut back on carbs, and up your protein and good fats!
That’s right, blood sugar levels determine what your risk is for heart disease, cancer, kidney and nerve damage as well as dementia and stroke.
It has been said by many doctors that understand the process of blood sugar malfunctions in the body that it is the major cause of aging and death in the developed world. Do you really want to live in a body that is in constant pain and rotting from the inside out?
For the past 30 years, she has helped thousands of people to lose weight and achieve optimum health.
Her research shows that exposure to carrageenan causes inflammation and it didn’t matter if it was degraded or undegraded. Lose weight, get your hormones, thyroid and adrenals balanced, along with getting your blood checked all from the privacy of your home and under the care of a board certified doctor.
Other good reasons for maintaining good levels of magnesium include keeping a healthy immune system, maintaining heart rhythm, building strong bones and maintaining proper nerve function. Left untreated, diabetes mellitus and the associated hyperglycemia can damage the kidneys, eyes, brain, legs, and circulatory system. So, I asked what is normal for a non-diabetic, and I used that as my goal for determining if my diabetes was improving. But Person A has a wider swing of 80 points (from the norm of 100), while Person B's swing is much less: 10 points. However the effect on blood sugar depends on the type of exercise, the duration of exercise, glucose and insulin levels before you start exercising. More specifically, if you have a greater muscle to fat ratio, you will burn energy at a faster rate and therefore be more effective at reducing your blood glucose level. It also causes some people to forget to take their medication, turn to comfort foods, overeat and therefore introduce a higher than normal amount of glucose in the blood. In addition, consistency in the time intervals between meals helps to prevent hypoglycemia and maintain overall blood glucose under control. These are some of the issues that should be screened for their potential role in diabetes management problems.
Mice that were fed a meal higher in fat after waking had normal metabolic profiles, while mice that ate more carbohydrates in the morning and consumed a high-fat meal at the end of the day showed increased weight gain and other markers of metabolic syndromes. Since skipping breakfast is often about skipping a meal for weight control purposes, it’s is a disorderly way of eating. And thanks to all of the benefits of breakfast, the body has an increased chance of warding off disease. Now I ask you, if that is the case, why do we have soda machines in offices and schools throughout our country? Well, I guess in the big scheme of things, you won’t even know it because dementia will set in and you’ll be clueless?
In my book, we have enough digestive issues to worry about with the consumption of genetically modified food.
They get broken down into glucose and move into the bloodstream where they are absorbed by cells for use or storage.
I also increased my blood glucose testing because I knew that the more data I collected, the better I would understand what was going on in my body.
Researchers found that the time of fat intake matters; when eating fat early, metabolism worked efficiently and affected the animals’ response to different types of food later in the day. There are plenty of other breakfast foods that will do the job as well, like oatmeal, walnut pancakes, and breakfast smoothies. Why do we promote liquid sugar drinks, liquid calories, that are instantly absorbed into the blood stream? Well according to what I am reading, research has been done numerous times and the findings were not good. Now it seems that there is yet another that will be causing major havoc on our internal body functions.
There are various easy to follow programs available and payment plans that make it all accessible for everyone. Glucose, or "blood sugar", is likened to "the gasoline that is essential to make your car run". Products such as soda, most juices, sports drinks, and the like along with refined carbohydrates like bread, rice, potatoes, pasta are the most consumed foods and beverages in this country. In fact, studies found that undegraded carrageenan, which is the type that is widely used in prepared foods, was associated with malignancies and other stomach issues. They knowingly used it to cause inflammation when they were doing testing on the anti-inflammatory properties of new drugs that they were trying to bring to market. I’d like to mention that the difference between degraded and undegraded carrageenan is found in the molecular weight.
They found that when mice were exposed to low doses of carrageenan for 18 days, the mice developed a profound intolerance to glucose along with impaired insulin action which eventually leads to diabetes. Now that is scary especially when the incidents of diabetes is climbing astronomically especially among our children.
