Diabetes is one of those things that most people don’t understand until they are diagnosed!
Having type 2 Diabetes means your body doesn’t use the insulin it is producing correctly. This is also known as Insulin Resistance. When this begins the pancreas takes up the slack and makes extra insulin to compensate. But the cells are usually FULL of insulin, and the insulin has nowhere to go except to the fat cells.
If you are at risk for Type 2 Diabetes a poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle contribute to glucose build up in the blood instead of glucose going to our cells as it should. This may result in weight gain, and over time high blood sugar levels may begin to affect eye health, kidneys, nerves and your heart. And to make things worse, the more weight gain you have, most likely your lepton hormone is high too, which makes weight loss more difficult unless the diet is drastically changed.
Many times we speak with people that say their glucose and A1C are perfectly fine, but they have Type 2 Diabetes symptoms. That is because when comprehensive blood work is finally run on them, it indicates high inflammatory levels, high insulin level, and only a slightly high A1C and glucose. In this case, a change in diet and supplementation should help, but the risk factors are there.
Being aware of your glucose, insulin, A1c, and leptin levels and keeping these numbers low can prevent some health issues which means a healthier YOU in later years!
