What is diabetes low blood sugar?
Diabetes is an incessant ailment that happens either when the pancreas doesn’t create enough insulin or when the body can’t viably utilize the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone that directs glucose.
Diabetes is a serious health issue that affects how your body needs to convert food into energy.
The large number of the food you eat is transformed into sugar (also known as glucose) and released into your bloodstream. Once your blood sugar rises, your pancreas sends a signal to release insulin.
Hyperglycaemia, or raised glucose, is a typical impact of uncontrolled diabetes and after some time prompts genuine
harm to a large number of the body’s frameworks, particularly the nerves and veins.
In 2014, 8.5% of grown-ups matured 18 years, and more seasoned had diabetes. In 2016, diabetes was the
the immediate reason for 1.6 million passings and in 2012 high blood glucose was the reason for another 2.2 million passings.
Somewhere in the range of 2000 and 2016, there was a 5% expansion in untimely mortality from diabetes. In high-pay nations,
the untimely death rate because of diabetes diminished from 2000 to 2010 however then expanded in 2010-2016. In lower-center salary nations,
the untimely death rate because of diabetes expanded across the two-time frames.
Conversely, the likelihood of kicking the bucket from any of the four fundamental noncommunicable sicknesses (cardiovascular ailments,
malignancy, incessant respiratory ailments or diabetes) between the ages of 30 and 70 diminished by 18% internationally somewhere in the range of 2000 and 2016.
There are two main types of os diabetes that can affect the body there.
Type I diabetes: Also known as adolescent diabetes, this sort happens when the body neglects to create insulin.
Individuals with type I diabetes are insulin-subordinate, which implies they should take counterfeit insulin every day to remain alive.
Type 2 diabetes: Type 2 diabetes affects the way the body uses insulin. While the body still makes insulin, unlike in type I, the cells in the body do not respond to it as effectively as they once did.
This is the most common type of diabetes, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, and it has strong links with obesity.
7 Common symptoms of diabetes to look for
- Blurry vision
- Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
- Feeling very thirsty
- Feeling very hungry—even though you are eating
- Urinating often
- Extreme fatigue
- Weight loss—even though you are eating more (type 1)
- Tingling, pain, or numbness in the hands/feet (type 2)
If you have more than two of these symptoms please seek medical attention
Iodine is a mineral found in certain foods. The body needs iodine to make thyroid hormones.
These hormones control the body’s digestion and numerous other significant capacities.
The body likewise needs thyroid hormones for appropriate bone and mental health during pregnancy and earliest stages.
What Does Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Prostate Cancer, and Heart Disease Have In Common? Answer: Iodine –
Not many people know that iodine stabilizes your heart rhythm, lowers serum cholesterol, lowers blood pressure, and is known to make the blood thinner.
Iodine attaches to insulin receptors and improves glucose metabolism, which is great news for people with diabetes.
Back in the day iodine and iodine-rich foods were used as a treatment for high blood pressure and heart disease; yet, modern-day medicine has discarded this practice. Iodine is essential for thyroid health.
Without iodine, the thyroid can not produce the hormones T3 and T4, which help regulate growth and metabolism.
Other tissues that absorb and use large amounts of iodine include the breasts, salivary glands, the pancreas, cerebral spinal fluid, the skin, the stomach, the brain, and the thymus.
Insufficient iodine supply to any of these issues will cause them to act up.
This means therefore that if your skin is dry or you never sweat you may be iodine deficient.
The same applies if you can not produce saliva or have a dry mouth. Fibromyalgia may be a symptom of insufficient iodine in the muscles. Low iodine levels in our brain lead to mental fatigue and a lowered IQ.
Other symptoms of iodine deficiency include type II diabetes, hypothyroidism, fibrocystic breast disease, breast cancer, intestinal problems, infertility, obesity, and prostate cancer.
Interestingly enough chlorine, bromine, and fluorine are chemicals that prevent the body from being able to utilize iodine.
Chlorine and fluorine are found in our water supply while bromine is found in our baked products, juices, sodas, and over-the-counter medications.
Iodine rich foods include seaweed such as kelp and various seafood
Foods Rich In Iodine
The foods highest in iodine include seaweed, dairy, tuna, shrimp, cod, dried prunes, lima beans, and eggs. Additionally, most table salt has been iodized, providing an easy way to add iodine to your meals
Try Chromium For Diabetes
What is Chromium is a mineral that humans require in tiny amounts. It helps to regulate blood sugar and helps insulin transport glucose into cells, where it can be used for energy.
Chromium can also help raise HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels and may play a role in preventing heart disease.
Processed foods, which compose a significant portion of the standard Western diet, are generally stripped of their natural chromium, and foods high in simple sugars inhibit the body from processing chromium.
Some symptoms of chromium deficiency include anxiety, fatigue, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, and prolonged injury recovery time. Broccoli is one of the best sources of chromium.
Chromium also exists in unfiltered tap water, and it’s released into food prepared in stainless steel cookware.
This is because chromium is used in the manufacture of stainless steel.
Two forms are commonly available as supplements: glucose-tolerance factor (GTF) chromium and chromium picolinate.
GTF chromium was discovered when yeast extracts mixed with insulin were found to make insulin work better in the lowering of blood sugar levels.
It was also found to be important in reducing cholesterol and triglycerides in diabetics.
Glucose tolerance factor chromium is found naturally in foods such as beef, beer, black pepper, brewer’s yeast, calves’ liver, cheese, clams, fresh fruits, lobsters, mushrooms, potatoes, scallops, thyme, whole grains, and wines.
I must point out that taking a vitamin pill or supplement that contains chromium or taking chromium picolinate is not the same as taking GTF chromium.
Most vitamin pills and supplements do not contain biologically active chromium. Also what you take with your GTF chromium is important.
For example, zinc competes with chromium for absorption, and therefore it is generally recommended that GTF be taken with no food or other supplementations.
A ketogenic diet high in good fats is extremely beneficial for diabetes reversal. Learn more about the ketogenic diet by clicking here.
There are certain ‘good’ foods that are ideal for a diabetic diet on a daily basis. And they are very easy to remember:
- Fermented foods (wins, beer, or cider)
- Whole grains (brown rice, oatmeal, bulgur )
- Beans and legumes (peanuts, black beans, green peas, lima beans, kidney beans)
- Fish—check types of fish that are safe
- Poultry (Chickens, ducks, turkeys, and geese)
- Lean meats (beef, lamb, veal, pork, kangaroo)
- Eat plenty of fresh fruits (less sweet) and vegetables
Whether or not you have diabetes, we all need insulin. Without sufficient insulin, the cells in our body do not function the way they should.
Insufficient insulin levels can cause extreme weakness, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, negative mood swings, and immune system dysfunction.
Insulin’s main purpose is to store blood glucose (mainly in the liver and muscles) in order to ensure we have a steady supply of energy to draw from when needed.
The brain depends on insulin to supply it with an adequate dose of glucose.
Lack of glucose in the brain leads to drowsiness and confusion. This is why we feel the way we do when our sugar drops.
Fluctuating insulin levels lead to weight gain. One of the keys to weight loss is to ensure that insulin levels remain steady.
Muscle mass depends on insulin. Bodybuilders routinely inject themselves with insulin in order to build bigger muscles.
Only a few people know that insulin stores magnesium. If you are insulin resistant you can’t store magnesium and you lose it through urination.
Magnesium relaxes muscles and is required for all energy-producing reactions that take place in a cell. Magnesium is also necessary for the manufacture and action of insulin.
When you raise insulin you lose magnesium. A lack of magnesium causes blood vessels to constrict.
This causes an increase in blood pressure. Insulin also causes the body to retain sodium which leads to fluid retention, which leads to high blood pressure, which can then lead to congestive heart failure.
A study done a few years ago showed that heart attacks are two to three times more likely to happen after a high carbohydrate meal and specifically NOT after a high-fat meal.
This is because blood sugar raises after a high carb meal which then raises insulin levels. High insulin levels trigger the sympathetic nervous system to constrict arteries.
This is when one is ripe for a heart attack. A lot of people see thyroid problems disappear after leveling insulin levels.
The same applies to those with sexual problems and those with osteoporosis. So how do we prevent fluctuating insulin levels from becoming insulin resistant?
Lots of fiber, omega fatty acids, and magnesium. Fibrous carbs like broccoli are great, nonfibrous carbs like potatoes are not.
Before I go let’s not forget the silent killer STRESS! Stress causes blood sugar and pressure to rise which then leads to insulin spikes.
Diabetes Recipes (short and to the point )
Genetic factors, stress and anxiety, high carbohydrate diets, obesity, nutritional deficiencies, and lack of exercise all play a role in the manifestation of this disease. I’m going to give you three herbal recipes for diabetes.
If you are into juicing
- get one big organic cucumber
- an entire stalk of celery
- a handful of parsley,
- half an inch of ginger
- juice from half a lemon or lime
Juice all these ingredients and mix them together.
Drink the juice with one tablespoon of flax oil. Drink on an empty stomach first thing in the morning.
Another good natural recipe for diabetes
is to use cinnamon.
Add three tablespoons of cinnamon
to one liter of boiling water simmer the mixture for 20 minutes on a low flame, and then strain the mixture.
Drink this cinnamon water daily.
Some people swear by bitter melon.
Drink one tablespoon daily.
