DIABETES & BLOOD SUGAR MANAGEMENT
The Changing Shape Of Insulin Resistance
Imbalanced blood sugar is at the forefront of many health issues, including obesity. No longer is it thought that blood sugar is only related to diabetic conditions, today it is known that insulin has relationships with stress & cortisol, inflammation, hormones, neurotransmitters, liver detoxification, even cholesterol. Where previously insulin and diabetes was synonymous with obesity, today we are faced with ‘atypical metabolic syndrome’, meaning that seemingly healthy looking people are having blood sugar management issues.
Insulin metabolic issues can present with varying and even contradicting symptoms. For example, someone with hypoglycaemia may feel better after meals, whereby someone more prone to insulin resistance may feel more tired after meals.
Here are some examples of symptoms associated with glucose management issues:
- Candida (thrush)
- Chronic illness and repeated infections
- Feeling dizzy and/or drowsy
- Feeling weak and/or faint
- Sugar cravings (even after sweet foods are eaten)
- Fatigue before/after meals
- Increased thirst
- Frequent urination
Dietary guidance and nutritional or herbal supplementation can be hugely successful in managing these conditions. Whether you are an already diagnosed diabetic, pre-diabetic, or would like support and assistance in managing glucose metabolism our practitioners can help.
