Pre-diabetes and moodsiwngs... is your blood sugar the real culprit?
Did you know that blood sugar maintenance is the number one thing you can do to improve your health? I know, right?! Crazy!
- Are you craving carbs all the time?
- Do you have trouble controlling your weight?
- Are you falling asleep at your desk at 10 am or between 2-4pm?
- Do you grab caffeine to get through your day?
- Do you need wine to get to sleep at night?
- Do you get “Hangry”? (Hungry and angry)
- Did your doctor tell you to get your blood sugar under control?
It may blow your mind when you read this list of other symptoms you could have:
- Mood Swings
- Hormonal imbalance and PMS
- Stomach pain
- Foggy brain
- Hot flashes
- Cholesterol issues
- Heart Disease
- Auto-immune disorders
- Weight gain
- Heart palpitations
- Bloating and gas
Do you see how you could think you have so many problems and it could all be coming from not controlling you blood sugar levels! I have been challenged myself with this issue, ask my kids about my hangry moments!
You can feel really crappy when you don’t control your blood sugar and you may not be able to figure it out until you get control of your lifestyle choices. I know, no one wants to hear this. The Standard American Diet (SAD) or Modern Urban Diet (MUD) is full of empty calories and high carbohydrates. These so called “foods” deplete your system of the nutrients you need to make energy and wreak havoc on your body’s ability to maintain normal blood sugar over time.
This is a huge cause of inflammation!
Because there are so many symptoms we will need to look at labs. I use an extensive Functional Health Panel to really figure out what is going on and make sure you don’t have any other deficiencies or other issues that might also be causing your symptoms.
We will sit together and decide your health goals. What needs to be tackled and how would you like to tackle them...
We could use anything from a strict elimination diet to Paleo-ish to a meal replacement program with weekly coaching. Getting your blood sugar under control, once and for all will be the beginning of walking a new path to health for you. Do you see how many things may heal just by changing one thing in your life - how and what you eat!
So many traditionally trained docs are just not equipped to teach their patients about nutrition. They may tell you to eat right but never offer any actual “How to” information. We totally have that covered for you! Let’s chat for 15 minutes and see if my solutions are a good fit for you...
