That's me, Cathy Rodgers, on the left back in the fall of 2012 at a Diabetes Walk (almost ready for diabetes myself). Researchers figured this out by giving people rectal infusions of the amount of propionate your good bacteria might make from a good burrito, and the stomach relaxes within minutes. The higher you ascend, the thinner the air gets which means you inhale less amounts of oxygen each time you breathe. Persons who have lived in high altitudes for long are used to the minimal oxygen levels, but travelers going to high altitude areas, altitude sickness may occur. Since your body may take several days to adjust to the low oxygen, it’s important to plan your trip wisely so that you slowly ascend to the high altitudes over the course of several days.
Give your body some time to get accustomed to the high altitudes before you can start taking any alcoholic beverages. If you are not sure of your overall health, consult with your doctor before you start planning for your vacation. At high altitudes, there is less water vapor in the air which makes the color of the sky bluer than the sky you are used to at home. For all the above types of altitude sicknesses, the most effective form of treatment is moving to low altitude levels immediately. If your symptoms are mild, giving your body time as it gets used to the high altitude may be helpful. Finally, obey your body as you travel to high altitude areas since altitude sickness can be fatal. To limit possible gastrointestinal side effects, your healthcare provider may start you on a 5-microgram (mcg) dose, twice a day. The pen User Manual that comes with BYETTA contains instructions for preparing and injecting BYETTA.
Your healthcare provider may prescribe BYETTA alone or with certain other medicines to help control your blood sugar. Your healthcare provider must teach you how to inject BYETTA before you use it for the first time. Inject your dose of BYETTA under the skin (subcutaneous injection) of your upper leg (thigh), stomach area (abdomen), or upper arm as instructed by your healthcare provider. Do not mix BYETTA and insulin in the same syringe or vial even if you take them at the same time. BYETTA is injected 2 times each day, at any time within the 60 minutes (1 hour) before your morning and evening meals (or before the 2 main meals of the day, approximately 6 hours or more apart). If you miss a dose of BYETTA, skip that dose and take your next dose at the next prescribed time. If you use too much BYETTA, call your healthcare provider or poison control center at 1-800-222-1222 right away.
Follow your healthcare provider’s instructions for diet, exercise, and how often to test your blood sugar.
Talk to your healthcare provider about how to manage high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) and low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), and how to recognize problems that can happen with your diabetes.
Do not take BYETTA if you have had an allergic reaction to exenatide or any of the other ingredients in BYETTA. Inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) may happen, which may be severe and lead to death.
Your risk for getting low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) is higher if you take BYETTA with another medicine that can cause low blood sugar, such as a sulfonylurea or insulin.

Tell your healthcare provider if you have severe problems with your stomach, such as delayed emptying of your stomach (gastroparesis) or problems with digesting food.
The most common side effects with BYETTA include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, feeling jittery, dizziness, headache, acid stomach, constipation, and weakness. Before using BYETTA, tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, as taking them with BYETTA may affect how each medicine works. BYETTA is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar (glucose) control in adults with type 2 diabetes, when used with diet and exercise. BYETTA should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or people with diabetic ketoacidosis (a condition caused by very high blood sugar).

Give people bread for breakfast, and they get big spikes in blood sugar and insulin levels, but give the same amount of carbs in lentil form and you blunt the effect.
Those that had lentils for breakfast, though, had less of a glycemic reaction to the bread.
They are packed with potassium (Preventing Strokes with Diet), mad with magnesium (Mineral of the Year—Magnesium), and a preferred source of protein (Plant Protein Preferable).
Truth is chances of suffering from high altitude sickness are not rare and that can mess up with your vacation. High altitude sickness occurs mainly at elevations that are more than 8,000 feet above sea level. It has an effect on about 25% of the people who go on vacation to areas that are over 8,000 feet. HACE can cause confusion, drowsiness, fatigue, lack of coordination and pulmonary embolism (PE).
A person suffering from HAPE is likely going to experience the following symptoms: cough, general body weakness and shortness of breath.
Where possible, schedule your holiday such that you explore high altitude areas during the day and get back to lower altitude areas for sleeping. Your doctor will examine you and recommend some drugs i.e acetazolamide (Diamox) for you to take for preventing and treating altitude sickness. You can move from 1,500-2,000 feet each time, until you stop experiencing any of the symptoms.
If you have a feeling you are having symptoms of altitude sickness, stop right where you are and don’t ascend any further until you feel better.
Based on your response to BYETTA, your healthcare provider may increase the dose to 10 micrograms, twice a day, after a month. If you have questions or do not understand the instructions, talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
Do not take an extra dose or increase the amount of your next dose to make up for a missed dose. Too much BYETTA can cause your blood sugar to drop quickly and you may have symptoms of low blood sugar.

If you see your blood sugar increasing during treatment with BYETTA, talk to your healthcare provider because you may need to adjust your current treatment plan for your type 2 diabetes. Before taking BYETTA, tell your healthcare provider if you have had pancreatitis, stones in your gallbladder (gallstones), a history of alcoholism, or high blood triglyceride levels.
The dose of your sulfonylurea or insulin medicine may need to be lowered while you use BYETTA. Altitude sickness affects about 25% of the people traveling to the Colorado Rockies and another 50% who go to the Cusco in Peru or trek in the Himalayas. A person suffering from AMS may have the following symptoms: vomiting, loss of appetite, nausea, headache and fatigue. HAPE is worse than HACE, so anyone suffering with the above symptoms should be give oxygen therapy and moved to a lower area.
For example, book the hotel you will be sleeping at some feet lower than the area you will be climbing, skiing or hiking in the course of the day. Symptoms of a severe allergic reaction include severe rash or itching, swelling of your face, lips, and throat that may cause difficulty breathing or swallowing, feeling faint or dizzy and very rapid heartbeat. Stop taking BYETTA and call your healthcare provider right away if you have pain in your stomach area (abdomen) that is severe, and will not go away, occurs with or without vomiting or is felt going from your abdomen through to your back. Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar may include headache, drowsiness, weakness, dizziness, confusion, irritability, hunger, fast heartbeat, sweating, and feeling jittery. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea that will not go away, or if you cannot take liquids by mouth. Well, the Brits like baked beans on their toast, but I’ve started using a handful of sprouted lentils in my breakfast smoothie. It’s usually difficult to tell whether you will get sick, but the higher the altitude and the speed at which you ascend, the more the risk.
Professional athletes can also develop high altitude sickness if they are not adequately prepared. Additionally, you may experience disrupted sleep and feel irritable until your body acclimatizes which may take several days.
HACE is a severe condition which can be fatal, thus if one experiences the above symptoms, they should move to low altitude areas and be medically treated. For example, you can stop at 8,000 for some days to give your body time to adjust and then proceed on later.
Furthermore, complex carbohydrates are excellent for balancing blood sugar levels and maintaining energy. If you have any symptoms of a severe allergic reaction, stop taking BYETTA and get medical help right away.
Beans moderate your blood sugar not just at the meal we eat them, but even hours later or the next day.
Persons living with some conditions such as heart and chronic lung ailments may encounter a lot of challenges at high altitudes and must seek their doctor’s approval before they embark on such vacations. Symptoms will set in 6 to 12 hours upon arrival but it diminishes within three days of being in that area.
So, we have a bean burrito for supper and by the next morning it’s time for our gut bacteria to eat that same burrito and the by-products they create may affect how our breakfast is digested.

    Might go too low ( hypoglycemia ), these goals are adjusted for some medications that increase insulin supply.
