Several years ago I took my daughter to her first high school dance. She was going to meet her girl friend at the dance. She didn’t have a date, she was to young for that as far as I was concerned, but she did want to go to the dance because she thought it would be fun. As we got in the car and headed down the street I asked her if she had this and that, trying to make sure she had everything. She seemed a little tense. Finally she told me in a tone that let me know I was bugging her, “I got this.” So, I stopped asking.
Risk factors that can lead to pre-diabetes or diabetes include high blood pressure, long term steroid use, and family history, diabetes during pregnancy, being overweight or sedentary. Risk also increases with age especially if you are 45 years or older. You may have diabetes for years and not know it. During this time, the disease may have harmed your eyes, nerves, and kidneys.
While the result of Type 2 is the same – high blood sugar – the cause is completely different. Type 2 results primarily from an excessively high carbohydrate diet over many years combined with a lack of physical activity. The carbohydrates (sugar and starch) become sugar in your blood. To handle that sugar, your islet cells make insulin as I described above and the sugar is removed by your fat, liver and muscle cells.
But when the carbohydrate is too much for a long time, eventually your fat, liver and muscle cells get full and can take no more. They start to ignore the insulin message. As your blood sugar cannot go too high without damage being caused, your islet cells make even more insulin. At first the fat, liver and muscle cells listen to the louder message but if this cycle is repeated it takes progressively more and more insulin to get the same result until eventually the fat cells just won’t take any more.

A low glycemic index indicates a low need for insulin in blood and it helps people suffering from diabetes to control the glucose and lipid levels in blood. To measure the Glycemic index the glucose response curve of two hours is measured after the ingestion of a certain amount of carbohydrate. The average GI index of a food item is calculated by measuring the human subjects after a food type is given to them. A GI index of 100 indicates the food produces a very high amount of glucose response and it is found in certain food items such as white bread.
Remember that your blood sugar is an essential part of your system. It provides no less than the energy that your body uses up! The best way to do it is still prevention. If in case you were already diagnosed with diabetes, there is hope! Just keep that glucose level where it’s supposed to be, live a healthy lifestyle and you will be able to achieve wellness in all aspects.
