Blood Sugar 101
Who is this specific newsletter targeted for? The answer... EVERYONE!
Controlling your blood sugar levels matters for every person on the planet, from babies to grandparents and everyone in between. It is not just a topic for those with a diabetes diagnosis.
In fact, blood sugar dysregulation is a wide spectrum and only at the very end of that spectrum is a diabetes diagnosis.
A few things that blood sugar dysregulation influences- chronic disease risk, weight, metabolism, inflammation, hormones, mood, aging, and the list goes on.
Getting Stuck on the Blood Sugar Roller Coaster
Eating foods and beverages that spike our blood sugar quickly and significantly means a "crash" is inevitable. Short term we feel great while our blood sugar is rising, energized and happy. Soon after we start craving sugar and getting hangry and this is all by design. Our brain senses danger when our blood sugar tanks and tells our tastebuds we need sugar to get it back up. Over time this negatively impacts our weight, makes us inflamed (the root of chronic disease), gain weight that's hard to lose and puts us a step closer to diabetes.

Our bodies are so unique to us and the same meal for one person impacts blood sugar differently than it would in another individual. I encourage everyone to try using a wearable CGM (continuous glucose monitor) at least once so you can understand your personalized needs and see exactly what your blood sugar is doing at every moment of the day. Then use that data to make tweaks in your food and lifestyle choices to improve your health. Feel free to email me if you have questions about this product!
