Did you know maintaining a consistent blood sugar level will greatly improve your life in a number of different ways?
Unfortunately, many people don’t even know that many of their eating decisions can greatly impact their blood sugar levels. This, sadly, results in many easily preventable health problems, especially for women.
Now, this article will cover why managing those levels is so important for both your physical and mental health. We’ll also explain a few natural ways for you to maintain those levels.
Signs of irregular blood sugar levels
You may have irregular blood sugar levels without even knowing it. Did you know that 28% of Americans are pre-diabetic? Do you know the worst part about that?
Most of them probably don’t even know it.
That’s really sad. Here are some of the symptoms that may indicate your insulin levels are a tad irregular:
- Chronic fatigue;
- Dry mouth;
- Blurred vision;
Remember, that’s only some of the many symptoms of irregular blood sugar levels. There are dozens of other symptoms.
And yes, your sugar levels can change throughout the day, which will cause these symptoms to come and go. For instance, if you drink a Coke or eat a pizza, then your insulin levels will spike.
It’s just too much sugar for your body to process at once.
If you drink too many Cokes or eat too many pizzas, which we all do due to the stress of life, your insulin levels may never return to normal. That’s commonly referred to as Type 2 diabetes.
Trust us, no woman wants that.
Why you should naturally manage your insulin levels
There are plenty of pharmaceutical options available for managing your insulin levels. However, we don’t really recommend using them if at all possible. Why don’t we recommend using them?
You can easily purchase insulin-regulating medicine. But it’s not cheap. In the US, you can easily spend up to $300 just on medicine.
That is outrageous for something that you can manage yourself if you’re not diabetic. That’s not the only negative part of using a non-natural medication, though
Naturally managing blood sugar levels
The best way to maintain blood sugar levels is by using natural methods. These methods mostly revolve around living a healthy lifestyle. Though you can also take 100% natural supplements that will help regulate your insulin levels. Here are some of those natural methods.
Pharmaceutical medication certainly has its issues – mainly price and side effects. This is where natural supplements enter the picture. They can help you with your blood sugar levels at a much better price than some of the non-natural medication.
Remember some of the nasty side effects of a wildly fluctuating blood sugar level? Headaches? Nausea? Dry mouth? Waking up to urinate? Natural supplements, like ketogenic diet supplement, can help with those issues. Most importantly, they don’t cost nearly as much AND they’re made from natural ingredients.
Really, you can’t go wrong with natural supplements.
High fat diet
A diet that is high in fat actually does a great job of maintaining your insulin levels. And no, eating fat won’t make you fat.
The reason fat works so well is because it’s a slow-burning source of energy. Your body doesn’t get a sudden spike of energy when it breaks down fat because it takes so long to break down. For instance, eating a whole pizza (carbohydrates) will cause your sugar levels to temporarily spike. Levels will then crash somewhat lower than before you scarfed down a whole pizza.
You will have a lot of problems if you do that too often.
Basically, if you think you might be having health problems, then lower your intake of sugar and carbohydrates. That will definitely help alleviate some of those problems.
Another common problem that can cause insulin-related issues is overeating. Sure, you can purchase healthful food, but you’ll still have trouble if you eat too much of it. With that in mind, don’t overeat. If you’re feeling hungry, then drink some water. Most hunger pangs are actually caused by dehydration.
The more you know…
All in all, managing your blood sugar level is one of, if not the most, important things you can do to live a healthy life. The downsides of not managing it are just too great.
Fortunately, plenty of natural options are available to help with this issue. Some of those options include eating more fat, not overeating, living an active lifestyle, and taking natural supplements. You can do all those options or one of those options. More is better, but every little bit will help improve your health.
In all honesty, it really comes down to decision making. Do you want to skip the pizza and Coke? Or do you want to avoid the countless health problems from an insulin spike?
The choice is yours.
