How Does High
Blood Sugar Affect Me?
Whenever we eat, our blood sugar increases. Depending on what and when we eat, we can control how much our blood sugar levels rise. Insulin increases to open up our cells like a key to receive the sugar for energy and eliminate it from the blood. Too much insulin makes our bodies not want to respond to it, seeing it as toxic. This eventually becomes insulin resistance. Weight loss could then become exponentially more difficult.
You would be astounded by how many body systems are affected by high insulin, and also how many issues resolve with a healthy nutritional lifestyle!
Sugar has to go somewhere, and if it doesn’t enter our muscles to be burned for energy, it can be converted into fat that lingers on the body. In extreme cases, it can cause plaque to build up in arteries like a band-aid to try to repair the arterial tears that high insulin and sugar cause. If the plaque breaks off and travels through the bloodstream to the brain, it can cause a stroke. It also can harden kidneys and cause cataracts. Let us help you re-wire your body to run on body fat and re-sensitize your cells. Read our keto blog to learn more!
