Things That Raise Your Blood Sugar

🩸 Blood sugar control goes WAY beyond just what you eat!  

NUTRITION is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to controlling blood sugar levels. Did you know there are over 40 factors at play? It can actually be quite a fascinating journey, discovering what affects your glucose levels . And everyone is a bit different.😱

Causes like stress and sleep, which I think most know about,  give way to lesser-known factors like time of day, gum disease, poor hydration, caffeine, pain, hormones, inflamed gut, viruses, skipping breakfast (for some), and even exercise (due to glycogen release and/or increase in cortisol-not a cause for concern). All these elements can impact our blood sugar.

 😲 And here’s an eye-opening truth: inadequate blood sugar management can accelerate our biological age, compromising longevity and overall health span. Elevated glucose levels can even affect our genes. And is an underlying cause of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s. 

The world of blood sugar control is actually very individualized. And I encourage you to explore what affects your blood sugar levels, paying attention to these ten factors.

To do this, I suggest purchasing and wearing a Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) for 14 days. I think it’s the best way to unlock the secrets to optimal metabolic health and to know your body and how to help it run a bit better! 🩸

CGM’s are available without a prescription online and at many compounding pharmacies.

Let me know if you’ve done this already and what you’ve discovered.

BTW-I’ve found it super important to know your fasting insulin levels to understand your blood sugar pattern better. This is obtained with a simple blood test. You can ask your doctor or order it yourself from Quest labs or my affiliate lab Here.
