As most people are well aware (from a previous post) I’ve been eating 100% RAW fruits and vegetables for about five months now. It may seem on the surface that eating fruit—which is usually sweet—would cause blood sugar problems. The proponents of the fad low-carb diets say that insulin is the bad guy and that people need to limit carbohydrates in order to limit insulin release.
One burgers amount of beef, or three slices of cheddar cheese, raises insulin levels more than almost two cups of pasta (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 50, 1997: 1264).
One-quarter pound of beef raises insulin levels in diabetics as much as one-quarter pound of straight sugar (Diabetes Care 7, 1984: 465).
Beef and cheese raise insulin levels higher than high-carbohydrate foods like pasta (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 50, 1997:1264). To ensure I’m not deficient in iron, B12, protein, and calcium, I will soon undergo a more extensive blood test. On Sunday April 6th WE MOVE THIS TOWN brought friends, family, and neighbours together for an hour of FUN & Fitness.
A normal blood glucose reading may seem nearly impossible to obtain but with the right amount of diet and exercise anyone can achieve one. Normal cholesterol readings and normal blood pressure readings are two main factors that your doctor or family physician will monitor closely once you are diagnosed as a full blow n diabetic or you are found to be border line. Low blood glucose readings just symbolize that a person needs to eat or provide themselves with more carbohydrates or foods that have a high amount of glucose in order to keep their body on a plateau. Once you have been diagnosed as a diabetic, chances are as long as your glucose levels are not too high the doctor will first try a plan of attack with diet and exercise in order to help you obtain a normal blood glucose readings, if this does not work he or she will place you on insulin which will help your body to produce glucose. Most people will have a spike in blood glucose levels after they eat, by keeping a log of what you eat and what your blood glucose readings are afterwards you will be able to see which foods you need to stay away from or avoid. People with diabetes may need to take insulin injections to control their high blood glucose. Homeostasis can be defined as an organism's tendency to maintain the equilibrium of different internal systems by using various biochemical and physical processes. Under normal circumstances, the body is able to balance the amount of glucose, or sugar, in the blood with the amount of glucose that the cells need for fuel. The other side of the equation in glucose homeostasis involves glucagon — another hormone produced by the pancreas.
In a healthy individual, these hormonal interactions and adjustments 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. Even for people who do not have and are not at risk for diabetes, glucose levels in the blood can really effect energy levels and your general health. I get that both types of diabetics have trouble maintaining homeostasis of blood glucose levels. Is your Diabetic Heart Killing you softly?Get to know about Diabetes Heart Failure link to more severe complications. Diabetics with reduced pancreatic function will likely require insulin for the rest of their lives.
The key to living a long and fruitful life, diabetes complication free, is learning to manage diabetes properly. You can’t know if you have truly normal blood sugars unless you actually test your blood sugars.


Attempting to properly manage diabetes without testing your blood sugar is like driving a car at night without headlights.
Cut the CARBS, ONLY eat fatty meats, coconut oil, butter, eggs,  leafy green vegetables and bone broth until your blood sugars are down into normal ranges.
It really is simple,  don’t over complicate it,   Sometimes we complicate things so we can use it as an excuse, do not do it! IF you want to reduce blood sugars more quickly, it’s very simple, reduce the fuel for blood sugar,  carbohydrates and protein. Note 1:  Keep in mind, as you eat lower carbs, you will need to adjust drugs and insulin requirements. I think that the diabetes educators and the nutritionists are well meaning but ultimately they are offering advice that is wrong for me and in fact harmful. It seems unthinkable that no one else is sharing their personal journey with others in the ENTIRE state of NC. I guess what I’m asking is: do every single one of the writer of the blogs on healthy living noted in the following link have a license to dispense advice on diet and fitness? I’d already begun researching and testing, and told her if I ate that much carbohydrate, my blood sugar would be through the roof! Instead I ate under 100g of carbohydrate a day on a 3,200 – 3,600 calorie a day diet, and about 150g a day when eating 5,000+ calories a day (long bike-riding days of 3 to 5 hours of intense riding). I now eat about 2,800 calories a day and 45-60g of carbohydrate most days, all from non-starchy vegetables and the very-occasional piece of sprouted-grain bread.

What they don’t mention is that fat and protein-rich rich foods also cause considerable insulin release.
Perhaps at this point, such a test will reveal, I am deficient in one of the following four categories. The afternoon Kicked off with a good old fashion game of soccer, followed by a massive game of CHUCK the CHIKEN, and concluded with a fitness circuit. A blood glucose test measures the amount of a certain type of sugar called glucose which is in your blood. Insulin pushes the pancreas to produce more glucose so that it can be released into the blood when the amount of glucose in the blood arises. If ones blood glucose levels are too high for a certain period of time it can substantially damage the eyes, nerves, kidneys and blood vessels, thus this is why it is important to keep normal blood glucose readings.
Examples of homeostasis in humans include the body's attempt to maintain a fairly constant and normal blood pressure, and its efforts to regulate internal body temperature.
The hormone insulin, which the pancreas produces, facilitates the transport of glucose into the 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. If you stick to whole wheat and whole fruit (which does have a lot of sugar, but also have fiber to help you metabolize it more slowly), you'll be a lot better off! I probably understand Type 1 better; their bodies do not produce insulin, so they cannot metabolize glucose, so they develop sever hyperglycemia and will die if left untreated. But then why do they wind up *low* blood sugar? Alba, What would be the glucose reaction if I eat 2 scrambled eggs with 2 slices of salt-cured bacon and one slice of wholegrain toast? However Type 2’s may wean off of diabetes drugs as long as they maintain truly normal blood sugar.


In addition to the Freestyle Lite, I am also a fan of Walmart’s Micro Reli-On, in my testing it matched the Freedom Freestyle Lite in accuracy.
I think if this is true for me, it is probably true for others, but I can only speak for myself. In addition to these changes, I’ve also had some very interesting conversations and concerns from family and friends. Another example of human homeostasis is glucose homeostasis, also known as blood glucose regulation or blood sugar regulation.
Too little available insulin in the bloodstream will reduce the amount of glucose that the cells are able to absorb. Hyperglycemia, or high blood glucose, can occur when the pancreas produces insufficient insulin or when cells are resistant to insulin.
Often, individuals with diabetes will need 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.
If an insulin-dependent diabetic overshoots the insulin, and takes too much, his or her blood sugar levels will drop too low.
Please watch the video posted below by another RAW foodist, who also did a similar test and found similar results. Douglas Graham “it is almost impossible to get too much sugar from the consumption of fresh fruit. I make this accusation based on the fact that I just ran a 3-hour marathon in Fredericton on Sunday, May 12 (qualifying me for the most prestigious marathon of all time, Boston) If I was deficient, would I have been able to train and run at this volume for the past 5 months?
Looking to get bigger after years of being a skinny middle distance runner, I wanted to put on muscle.
Glucose homeostasis relies on the balance and interactions of two hormones — insulin and glucagon — to maintain a healthy blood glucose level.
This will raise the blood glucose level, which in turn stimulates the pancreas to release more insulin and allow more glucose absorption. The hormone stimulates the liver to release glucose stored within its cells, thus raising blood glucose levels to a normal level.
Left untreated, diabetes mellitus and the associated hyperglycemia can damage the kidneys, eyes, and circulatory system. Taking a sugary drink will quickly bring blood sugar levels back up to normal and prevent more serious complications. Many of my friends have asked “Won’t eating all that fruit cause high blood sugar, or make you diabetic?” Along with their concerns, this was an obvious concern of mine as well. Eating fruit is not the cause of blood sugar problems…it’s just not that simple.” According to Graham, the real cause is too much fat. This is why most diabetics have to have routine diabetic screenings which will monitor their blood sugar readings after meals which will show what types of foods give them high amounts of glucose. If I eat that many carbs, I will need to take insulin and probably something like Actos again. With all this sugar consumption, surely this would cause blood sugars to spiral out of control, or, put you at risk for developing diabetes. Oh, and I don’t need to take a statin any more either, for my cholesterol, which has improved.
