Test your blood sugar! Do it now!
I am working on my slides for a seminar presentation on Insulin Toxicity......metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer's, cancer, weight gain, obesity.....and the list of health issues due to insulin problems goes on and on and the numbers are ABSOLUTELY STAGGERING!
Buy a $20 glucometer at the local pharmacy. Start by testing your morning blood sugar after not eating over night (12 hours).
If you are under 86 you are rocking! If you are 86 to 100 that is a sign that you are on a bad path. 100-125 is the technical pre-diabetic range and 126 plus is considered diabetic.
Look.....test NOW! 93% of the people tested had NORMAL blood sugar levels and actually had insulin resistance and went on to developing type 2 diabetes in a study of over 16,000 people. 80% had a normal glucose tolerance test.
Don't assume you are healthy or fit......even if you are working out every day and eat very cleanly, test! Test today!
I can't tell you how many athletes, from competitive powerlifters, bodybuilders, olympic athletes, professional athletes, to hard core cross-fitters and marathoners, who, when tested, turned out to have metabolic syndrome or prediabetes or worse.
ALSO, I work almost exclusively with health care professionals, doctors, nutritionists, naturopaths, nurses, you name it, and when we test we are usually quite surprised with them as well.....even though they work with this daily!
Look, if your numbers are bad, there is no judgement here, mine have been bad too. TAKE it for what it is worth and get onto a plan to get better!
TEST, don't guess.
