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. Steve Cooksey Post author April 30, 2012 at 6:37 pm Mose, my best advice to you is to see if you can find a paleo doctor on this site. When this normal process goes wrong, there is either not enough insulin to do the signalling or the cells are "insulin resistant", that is, they do not seem to understand what the insulin is trying to tell them to do about the glucose. My name is Dr Iris Bell, and I am an alternative medicine doctor, researcher, and educator educated at Harvard and trained at Stanford Medical School, as well the University of California - San Francisco. For normal people, their system keeps blood sugar in the range of 70-100 milligrams per deciliter while fasting (after not eating overnight, for instance). Different age groups may have somewhat different cut-offs that define what is "too high." If the blood sugar stays high for long periods of hours, someone can develop damage to their body's tissues, especially kidneys, blood vessels in the brain and heart and nerve damage in peripheral nerves that normally detect pain, vibration, and temperature in the toes and fingers.
Once a person has been diagnosed with diabetes, they usually need to use a combination of diet, exercise, weight loss, and medications to control blood sugar levels. The drugs are not always effective or are only partly effective in lowering blood sugar (and sometimes they overshoot and cause serious short term problems of very low blood sugar levels that can cause seizures, brain damage, or even death), and they can cause their own serious side effects, and so reducing the risk of diabetes is always preferable to taking drugs to treat it once it develops.
So my school is on a block schedule, and therefore every other day I have dance class for an hour and a half. So today I had dance class again and I didn’t go low during, but I went low immediately after class had ended. I pretty much rode at that blood sugar during the whole last period of the day and it was with that blood sugar that I started lacrosse practice. By the time I got to my clarinet lesson (rush hour is a killer) I actually felt low so I drank some juice and ran inside. And then my dad came and he gave me my insulin and then he left and I gave myself a new site.
AND THEN a girl named Nicole came in and she just happened to be a diabetic and she just happened to be high. I feel like a total hypocrite because one of my last posts was about how diabetes is all wonderful and how we should stop complaining. One thing you should know about me: When I am high I am in a really (like, really REALLY) bad mood.
High blood sugars HAVE gotten better over the last couple of years, mostly due to me becoming more mature.
So this is pretty much a low carb snack, and therefore excellent for high-blood-sugar days.
Diabetes (high blood sugar) has reached epidemic proportions in America, we must be very alert to the signs and symptoms, and if you have them, please see your health care professional.
People with prediabetes have glucose levels that are higher than normal but not high enough yet to indicate diabetes.
Normally your body produces a hormone called insulin to help your cells use the energy (glucose) found in food. If you have prediabetes, you’re at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes as well as the serious medical problems associated with diabetes, including heart disease and stroke. To determine if you have prediabetes, your doctor can perform one of three different blood tests: the fasting plasma glucose (FPG) test, the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) or the Hemoglobin A1C (or average blood sugar) test.
The good news is there are simple measures you can take to reduce the risk of developing diabetes, these measures can play a significant role in early diagnosis. The following points highlight important actions you can take to help reduce diabetes risk.
Disclaimer: All content on this website is for informational purposes only and should not be considered to be a specific diagnosis or treatment plan for any individual situation. In order to have optimal health you will want to eat foods that maintain a stable blood sugar.


When you reduce your carbohydrate intake enough you will inevitably have to increase your fat consumption. Not only is Fat consumption and ketosis good for fat loss, it is also excellent for mental performance. For many athletes they have been told that carbohydrates are absolutely necessary for athletic performance.
There is an emerging field of research that shows the potential for ketosis preventing and possibly curing cancer (1).
There is no doubt that there are many benefits to living in a state of ketosis and I have personally enjoyed them with my own experience. The field of research on ketosis will continue to develop over the years and I think it has excellent health benefits and possibilities. 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. I know the daily challenges of diabetes first-hand, and I know where to look to find drug-free answers for you in working to reverse your diabetes or prevent pre-diabetes from becoming a diagnosed case of type 2 diabetes, and reduce your risk of complications. Blood sugar can go up and down depending on diet, specific points in time (it may be highest in the mornings when the body naturally releases the most cortisol, an essential hormone that is also released under stress but that is in the system all the time in some amount), after exercise, and during infections.
Lifestyle changes, if done thoroughly and properly, can work just as well as any drug and have a much safer long term outcome in terms of side effect risks. I mean, it’s good for you and everything, but it’s still out to bite me in the butt because blood sugars are so hard to manage, and I can’t ever seem to find a pattern. It’s really hard for me to tell if I’m low when I exercise, so when lacrosse season started again I put my CGM (continuous glucose monitor) back so I could get an idea of when I was going low. I gradually went down to levels within range throughout the practice (I checked my CGM practically every five minutes) and then, of course, at the end of practice I was low. When I was ten and newly diagnosed with diabetes, my high blood sugars were usually in the 300 range, and they would result in me screaming at my parents and storming up stairs and stomping around for the better part of two hours.
It makes me happy to know that there is at least one way to help reduce symptoms instead of waiting an hour for your insulin to kick in. With diabetes, either your body doesn’t make enough insulin or doesn’t efficiently use the insulin it does produce. The pancreas may not be able to produce enough insulin after a meal to “clear” the incoming glucose from the blood, or cells may be insulin resistant. With pre-diabetes, you are at a 50% higher risk of heart disease and stroke than someone who does not have pre-diabetes. While the general rule is to have an annual visit, if you are overweight, have high blood pressure, high blood glucose or even high cholesterol, you may want to consider visiting your doctor every 6 months to have your numbers checked and discuss any health concerns.
For instance, blood glucose (A1C) should be less than 7% and can be checked by your doctor at least twice a year. Use of this website and the information contained herein does not create a doctor-patient relationship. Simple carbohydrates are the worst and generate massive spikes in blood sugar and subsequent insulin.
When blood sugar is stable your body is getting all it needs for various functions and fueling the brain. Despite popular media and conventional wisdom, in almost every study low carbohydrate diets dominate. Your body will switch from using sugar as a primary fuel source to using fat as a primary fuel source. The theory is that cancer relies on glucose as its energy source; remove the energy source and the cancer dies.
If you are considering trying a ketogenic diet you should figure out what your objectives are and what you want to achieve.

Insulin is the main hormone in the body, secreted by the pancreas gland, as part of digestion to signal the body cells to take up glucose and use it to power the cells throughout the body. Check out this resource here. Or just start with the basics - a good glucose meter and test strips. I am not exactly what you would call coordinated and it takes me a million practices to get something right, but it is a really really fun class.
Usually the CGM doesn’t get readings fast enough, especially when I’m dropping quickly, but something is better than nothing.
I wasn’t feeling low (the whole exercise and can’t feel your blood sugars thing), but I knew something wasn’t right. While I was there I skied for a total of two days, and on the first day I had some really low blood sugars. Well, I suppose it isn’t a rumor, because it mostly goes for type 2 diabetics, but on some days I just beg for sugar free, or mostly sugar free snacks. For example: They take cucumbers or jimaca or watermelon or honeydew or pineapple or a mixture of all of the above and put salt, lime, and chile on it. Most people with prediabetes don’t have any symptoms, but they are considered to be at high risk for developing heart disease. When glucose builds up in the blood, it can damage the tiny blood vessels in the kidneys, heart, eyes, and nervous system.


When cells are insulin resistant, they won’t allow the insulin to escort glucose from the bloodstream into them. This may be a wake-up call as many who are diagnosed with type 2 experience little or no symptoms.
Other factors such as lifestyle habits and family health history should be reviewed to learn how you can adopt necessary changes to reduce diabetes risk. Always consult with your own doctor in connection with any questions or issues you may have regarding your own health or the health of others. A raised level of blood sugar is actually quite damaging and generates systemic inflammation.
Ketosis is actually preferable for endurance athletes as it prolongs energy by utilizing both glycogen and body fat stores. Many people will find it very easy to adhere to the ketogenic diet and achieve very good results. People whose fasting and 2-hour post-meal blood sugar levels are above those general cut-offs are considered either pre diabetic (if the value is high but not quite past the threshold level to diagnose diabetes) or diabetic. Right now we are learning the choreography to a swing dance that we are performing in a couple of weeks, and earlier this week I was low in the middle of class. But I was already late for my clarinet lesson so I just jumped in the car and drove and stuffed a granola bar and some oreos into my mouth on the way there.
So the other day I’d been having high blood sugars for pretty much the whole day so finally I just went down to the nurse so I could change my site because I figured it was a bad site.
Three diabetics were high at the same time and lamenting about high blood sugars and were in the nurse’s office at the same time. And I feel like people should sysympathize with me, which, truth be told, doesn’t really happen. And, because I was just newly diagnosed, my parents were afraid to give me insulin, so they would send me outside with a jump rope. It signals the likely onset of a more serious condition and can begin the process of doing damage to your heart as well as other organs such as the kidneys, eyes, and nervous system.
Risk factors for both conditions are the same while they are both preventable with weight management, regular exercise, and healthy eating habits.
Your body converts dietary and body fat into ketone bodies, which are actually the preferred fuel source for many organs and muscles in your body (1) including the brain. A wide variety of evidence suggests that the ketogenic diet could have beneficial disease-modifying effects in epilepsy and also in a broad range of neurological disorders characterized by death of neurons. Cancer is now being considered to be a disease of metabolic dysfunction rather than previously viewed as a genetic abnormality. If I eat that many carbs, I will need to take insulin and probably something like Actos again. But when I got there I didn’t have any insulin so I had to call my dad so he could bring me insulin. It could count your carbs and test your blood sugar and be your pump AND be your phone, iPod, etc…). My grandfather rented out a house in Steamboat for winter vacation so all of my aunts, uncles, and grandparents (and my immediate family) came up to Steamboat to hang out and ski.
Fat theoretically has a glycemic index of zero and will have almost no effect on blood sugar. If you have restricted your carbohydrate intake or have exercised rigorously these storages sites will have capacity. In the state of ketosis many people find their energy levels will remain stable and that fat very easily melts off your body.
Blood flow to the brain also increases during ketosis and has been shown to increase by 39%. Weight lifters and sprinters will still require carbohydrates to replace glycogen stores after intense workouts. Eating a diet of predominantly protein and fat, with some complex carbohydrates (like vegetables) will help maintain a stable blood sugar.
However, if they are full your body has no choice but to convert the excess blood sugar into body fat. But will still have comparable performance simply using the glycogen stores within the body.
You may do just as well by having a low-moderate carbohydrate intake in the form of complex carbohydrates which have a low glycemic index. Oh, and I don’t need to take a statin any more either, for my cholesterol, which has improved.
And being high is never fun except on that day it was because we could complain to each other and talk about things that nobody else would ever get. Sugar can be viewed as rocket fuel for quick spontaneous power and fat as a wood burning stove for long consistent energy. It is something you can experiment with to see how you feel and perform and get a better sense of what it is like. Just hanging out with diabetics is fun in general but it was even better this time because we were both high. Imagine the storage sites are your gas tank in your car, you can only fill it up so much and if you keep pumping when the tank’s full, gasoline will overflow and spill everywhere.
