There are certain foods that raise my blood sugar levels, like pineapple or a fasting glucose level of 102 could be either normal or a subtle signal of insulin. I went to the Life Extension Foundation (“LEF”) website and purchased their Male Hormone Blood Test Panel, got my blood drawn, received the lab report and reviewed the results on the phone with a LEF doctor.
About a month ago, in August, I again got my blood analyzed, but this time I included a very comprehensive cholesterol-oriented test offered by LEF called VAP.
I’ll have plenty to report about these tests in the future; in fact, this post will begin a series of posts on the subject of knowing your blood numbers, and responding accordingly. Glucose, Serum is a test that measures the amount of a sugar called glucose in a sample of your blood. Carbohydrates, which are abundant in fruit, cereal, bread, pasta, and rice, are quickly turned into glucose in your body, which then raises your blood glucose level. Over time, too many carbs too often can impede your insulin’s ability to remove excess glucose from the blood, a potential problem, as any diabetic can tell you. When your body does not produce sufficient insulin or has become resistant to insulin, the blood sugar level in your body increases because it is unable to enter the cells. Some sources say that a blood sugar level of 100 is within acceptable limits, and others, like LEF, say it’s of concern. As psychologists would term it, I’m having “cognitive dissonance”; meaning, a blood sugar level of 100 doesn’t fit with my perception of what should be true.
When it comes to diet, the only thing I wonder about is if my recent practice of intermittent fasting could affect blood sugar negatively. I also have been experimenting with so-called “Bulletproof Coffee”, basically coconut oil blended with high quality coffee (I abstain from the butter), which add another 150 calories from the heaping tablespoon of the coconut oil, for a total of 300 calories ingested from morning till 1:30 PM. Let me underscore that this selection DOES NOT reflect my interpretation of the best supplements to take among the LEF list of suggestions.

My blood sugar monitoring will also include non-fasting measurements taken two hours after lunch and dinner, as well as after exercise.
I’ll end this post with the aforementioned video showing how I intend to monitor my blood sugar. You're gonna get (1) the Newsletter, (2) the four-part guide, Transform Your Body and Mind, and (3) the 12 Ageproof Biohacks. The Insulin Resistance Syndrome THE INSULIN RESISTANCE SYNDROME Syndrome XReaven’s SyndromeMetabolic Syndrome also known as Insulin resistance is strongly associated with certain cardiovascular risk factors, including hyperinsulinaemia, impaired glucose tolerance, hypertension, increased serum triglycerides, decreased HDL-cholesterol and obesity Together, these metabolic disturbances are referred to as: 1.

A buddy of mine had been taking a bio-identical testosterone medication prescribed by his doctor, and I observed him gradually go from being a bit listless to an energetic mojo-pumped happy sorta guy. Yes, “naturally”, because, indeed, my testosterone numbers were low and I wanted to try boost them through supplementation, extra weight-bearing exercise and ingesting more protein, rather than by some testosterone patch, cream or injections. Glucose is a major source of energy for most cells of the body, including those in the brain.
After you eat, carbohydrates break down into sugar and enter the bloodstream in the form of glucose, a sugar that serves as a primary source of energy.
I exercise regularly (mobility exercises every morning, resistance training three times per week, cardio twice, yoga twice), eat a nutritious, low carb diet, get eight hours of sleep most nights, and meditate regularly. More alarming, as the video below shows, a self-administered test using implements designed for diabetics showed my fasting blood sugar number to be 110 this morning. So, I will not be content with a modest decrease from my 100 LEF score, or 110 self-administered test results.

Stay tune for updates on this subject and for more posts about the other unsavory results from last months LEF blood tests. I'm a big believer in sustainability, and am a bit nutty about optimizing my diet, supplements, hormones and exercise. Om het te downloaden, raad, alsjeblieft, deze presentatie aan je vrienden in de sociale netwerken. Blood sugar that’s out of control is turning the people of this nation into pre-diabetics, most having no clue that they’re on the path to becoming diabetic. I knew from my readings on the topic that most men begin to lose testosterone soon after 30. Normally, the pancreas responds by producing insulin, which allows sugar to enter the tissues.
I didn’t list “improving my diet” or some such thing, because at the moment I don’t know how I’d make it better relative to improving my blood sugar. Within one-half hour of arising, I ingest about 30 grams of protein powder mixed with water, and one heaping tablespoon of flax seed powder, together about 150 calories.
The least weight gain is seen when TZDs are used either as monotherapy or in combination with Metformin.
Is it possible, that despite all the healthy things I do, that I’m on that path too?  Are you?? Normal fasting blood sugar is between the diagnosis of pre-diabetes is made when two blood tests show that your fasting blood sugar level is prediabetes: what.
