Are you worried about your blood sugar regulation? Don't wait until diabetes, act now!
Where are you on the continuum?
- Green zone. Most of us are born with healthy blood sugar regulation and remain healthy for a very long time.
- Yellow zone. For various reasons, the metabolic pathways can start working less efficiently and you can see an increase in your blood sugar numbers: fasting glucose above 100mg/l, HgA1C above 5.6. Unfortunately, you are now in the yellow zone (pre-diabetic). This is certainly the time to make changes in your diet and lifestyle that will bring you back to the green zone.
- Red zone. If you miss this opportunity you’ll most likely move on to the red zone: diabetes. It is estimated that by the time we are diagnosed with diabetes we have already lost 60% of the pancreatic beta cells that secrete insulin. We won’t be able to regenerate them, not quite yet, although scientists are working on it.
How I can help you
If you have diabetes in your family, you are at a higher risk for getting it yourself. You probably want to talk to me about prevention.
If you are in the pre-diabetes or yellow zone we’ll work on your eating habits to:
- Reduce the carbohydrate load of your meals
Improve insulin sensitivity of your cells
Give your pancreas a chance to recuperate
Support your healthy liver functioning
Lose weight if needed
If you have diabetes, I can work together with you and your doctor to lower blood sugar and hemoglobin A1C and, hopefully, reduce your medication.
Above all, you don’t have to deal with this alone. I am here to help.
