  • BLOOD SUGAR MANAGEMENT DESCRIPTION

    BLOOD GLUCOSE ROLLER COASTER RIDE

    The medical term for blood sugar is blood glucose. Glucose (a type of sugar) is the body's main source of energy. Glucose testing is the measurement of blood sugar levels in the body. Fasting is to go without eating for a period of several hours or more. When the stomach is empty, then as much glucose as possible has been moved from the blood stream. Blood sugar concentration naturally increases after a meal when the food is digested.

    The Blood Glucose Level Chart: This chart is only a guideline. People with blood glucose fluctuations outside the normal range should consult with their medical health care provider for management of their condition. Diabetes requires medical attention.

    low blood glucose - hypoglycemia


    HYPOGLYCEMIA (LOW BLOOD SUGAR)

    Persistently low blood sugar levels indicates a condition called hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia is the clinical syndrome that resules from low blood sugar. The symptoms of hypoglycemia can vary from person to person, as can the severity. Classically, hypoglycemia is diagnosed by a low blood sugar with symptoms that resolve when the sugar level returns to the normal range.

    While people who do not have any metabolic problems can complain of symptoms suggestive of low blood sugar, true hypoglycemia usually occurs in people being treated for diabetes (type 1 and type 2). Individuals with pre-diabetes who have insulin resistance can also have low blood sugars on occasion if their circulating insulin levels are further challenged by a prolonged period of fasting. There are other rare causes for hypoglycemia, such as insulin producing tumors (insulinomas) and certain medications.

    Despite advances in the treatment of diabetes, hypoglycemic episodes are often the limiting factor in achieving optimal blood sugar control, because many medications that are effective in treating diabetes carry the risk of lowering the blood sugar level too much, causing symptoms of hypoglycemia. In large scale studies looking at tight control in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, low blood sugars occurred more often in the patients who were managed most intensively. This is important for patients and physicians to recognize, especially as the goal for treating patients with diabetes becomes tighter control of blood sugar.

    The body needs fuel to work. One of its major fuel sources is sugars, which the body gets from what is consumed as either simple sugar or complex carbohydrates in the diet. For emergency situations (like prolonged fasting), the body stores a stash of sugar in the liver as glycogen. If this store is needed, the body goes through a biochemical process called gluco-neo-genesis (meaning to "make new sugar") and converts these stores of glycogen to sugar. This backup process emphasizes that the fuel source of sugar is important (important enough for human beings to have developed an evolutionary system of storage to avoid a sugar deficit). Of all the organs in the body, the brain depends on sugar (glucose) almost exclusively. Rarely, if absolutely necessary, the brain will use ketones as a fuel source, but this is not preferred. The brain cannot make its own glucose and is 100% dependent on the rest of the body for its supply. If for some reason, the glucose level in the blood falls (or if the brain's requirements increase and demands are not met) there can be effects on the function of the brain.

    When the circulating level of blood glucose falls, the brain actually senses the drop. The brain then sends out messages that trigger a series of events, including changes in hormone and nervous system responses that are aimed at increasing blood glucose levels. Insulin secretion decreases and hormones that promote higher blood glucose levels, such as glucagon, cortisol, growth hormone, and epinephrine all increase. As mentioned above, there is a store in the liver of glycogen that can be converted to glucose rapidly. In addition to the biochemical processes that occur, the body starts to consciously alert the affected person that it needs food by causing the signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia.

    The normal range of glucose in the bloodstream is from 70 to 100 mg/dL when the individual is fasting (that is not immediately after a meal). The body's biochemical response to hypoglycemia usually starts when sugars are in the high/mid 70's. At this point, the liver releases its stores and the hormones mentioned above start to activate. In many people, this process occurs without any clinical symptoms. The amount of insulin produced also declines in an attempt to prevent a further drop in glucose.

    While there is some degree of variability among people, most will usually develop symptoms suggestive of hypoglycemia when blood glucose levels are lower than 50 mg/dL. The first set of symptoms are called adrenergic (or sympathetic) because they relate to the nervous system's response to hypoglycemia. Patients may experience nervousness, sweating, intense hunger, trembling, weakness, palpitations, and often have trouble speaking. In most people, these symptoms are easily recognizable. The vast majority of individuals with diabetes only experience this degree of hypoglycemia if they are on medications or insulin. People (with diabetes or who have insulin resistance) with high circulating levels of insulin who fast or change their diet to lower their carbohydrate intake drastically should also be cautioned. These individuals may also experience modest hypoglycemia.

    People being treated for diabetes who experience hypoglycemia may not experience symptoms as easily as people without diabetes. This phenomenon has been referred to as hypoglycemic unawareness. This can be dangerous as blood sugars may approach extremely low levels before any symptoms are perceived.

    Anyone who has experienced an episode of hypoglycemia describes a sense of urgency to eat and resolve the symptoms. And, that's exactly the point of these symptoms. They act as warning signs to tell the body to consume more fuel. At this level, the brain still can access circulating blood glucose for fuel. The symptoms provide a person the opportunity to raise blood glucose levels before the brain is affected.

    If a person does not or cannot respond by eating something to raise blood glucose, the levels of glucose continue to drop. With further drops in blood glucose, patients progress to neuro-glyco-penic ranges (meaning that the brain is not getting enough glucose). At this point, symptoms progress to confusion, drowsiness, changes in behavior, coma, and seizure.

    HYPOGLYCEMIC MANAGEMENT

    The acute management of hypoglycemia involves the rapid delivery of a source of easily absorbed sugar. Regular soft drinks, juice, lifesaver candies, table sugar, and the like are good options. In general, 15 grams of glucose is the dose that is given, followed by an assessment of symptoms and a blood glucose check if possible. If after 10 minutes there is no improvement, another 10-15 grams should be given. This can be repeated up to three times. At that point, the patient should be considered as not responding to the therapy and an ambulance should be called.

    The equivalency of 10 to 15 grams of glucose (approximate servings) are:
    • Four lifesavers (candies).
    • 4 teaspoons of sugar.
    • 1/2 can of regular soda or 6 ounces of juice.

    Many people like the idea of treating hypoglycemia with dietary treats such as cake, cookies, and brownies. However, sugar in the form of complex carbohydrates or sugar combined with fat and protein are much too slowly absorbed to be useful in the acute treatment of hypoglycemia. Once the acute episode has been treated, a healthy, long-acting carbohydrate to maintain blood sugars in the appropriate range should be consumed. Half a sandwich is a reasonable option.

    If the hypoglycemic episode has progressed to the point at which the patient cannot or will not take anything by mouth, more drastic measures will be needed. In many cases, a family member or roommate can be trained in the use of glucagon. Glucagon is a hormone that causes a rapid release of glucose stores from the liver. It is an injection given intramuscularly to an individual who cannot take glucose by mouth. A response is usually seen in minutes and lasts for about 90 minutes. Again, a long-acting source of glucose should thereafter be consumed to maintain blood sugar levels in the safe range. If glucagon is not available and the patient is not able to take anything by mouth, emergency services (for example 911) should be called immediately. An intravenous route of glucose administration should be established as soon as possible.

    With a history of recurrent hypoglycemic episodes, the first step in treatment is to assess whether the hypoglycemia is related to medications or insulin treatment. Patients with a consistent pattern of hypoglycemia may benefit from a medication dose adjustment. It is important that people with diabetes who experience hypoglycemia check blood glucose values multiple times a day to help define whether there is a pattern related to meals or medications. Some people who experience recurrent hypoglycemia will benefit from changes in their dietary patterns; for example, eating multiple small meals and frequent small snacks throughout the day rather than three larger meals.

    People with diabetes should wear identification stating they have diabetes and whether they have recurrent hypoglycemia. Those at risk for hypoglycemia should be counseled on checking blood sugars before they drive a car, operate heavy machinery, or do anything physically taxing. In addition, it is important to carry a quick-acting glucose source (such as those mentioned above) at all times, and keep a source in their car, office, and by their bedside. Efforts should be made to minimize the hypoglycemic effects of medication regimens and to avoid variable surges in exercise, activity, and alcohol consumption.

    high blood glucose - hyperglycemia


    HYPERGLYCEMIA (HIGH BLOOD SUGAR)

    High blood sugar is an elevated level of sugar glucose in the blood, known as hyperglycemia. Blood sugar levels that are consistently too high are an indication that the body has trouble processing sugar. This condition is known as hyperglycemia, and is often an indication of diabetes. In some cases, diabetics can be treated with nutritional therapies such as a strict vegan diet. In other cases, insulin injections are needed to regulate blood sugar. Blood sugar levels drop as insulin transports glucose from the blood to the tissues of the body.

    High blood sugar is a finding in a number of conditions, most notably diabetes mellitus. Elevated blood glucose leads to spillage of glucose into the urine (glucosuria) so that the urine is sugary. (The term diabetes mellitus means "sweet urine.") Aside from diabetes, the many other causes of high blood sugar include just eating more sugar (or food) than usual, the presence of an infection or another illness, an injury and the stress of surgery. An elevated level of blood sugar may be a useful independent indicator of heart disease risk. The risk of dying from heart disease has been found to rise as the level of blood glucose increases (regardless of age, weight, blood pressure, cholesterol and smoking status).

    High blood sugar may produce few or no symptoms. When there are symptoms, they may be dry mouth, thirst, frequent urination, urination during the night, blurry vision, fatigue or drowsiness, weight loss, or increased appetite.

By targeting al of the diverse glucose pathways, Life Extension Tri Sugar Shield delivers the widest possible support to help naturally stabilize already healthy glucose levels.
    LEF: Glucose Serum Blood Test, 1 Test
    High blood glucose levels are associated with diabetes, neuropathy, eye problems, heart disease and stroke. Life Extension believes that an optimal range for fasting blood glucose is 70 to 85 mg/dL. An 8 to 12 hour fast is required for this blood test. However, drink plenty of water and take your medications as prescribed.
    LEF: Fasting Glucose and Insulin Blood Test, 1 Test
    This panel contains the following tests: Fasting Glucose & Fasting Insulin. Glucose is the primary blood sugar used by cells to make energy. Because glucose is so important to your cells, the body regulates it in many different ways. The one most commonly understood involves insulin, a hormone secreted by the pancreas that delivers glucose to cells throughout the body. When you eat a meal, the pancreas responds by releasing insulin to transport the glucose into the cells. As long as receptors on the cell walls remain sensitive to insulin, the channeling of glucose out of the bloodstream occurs relatively quickly and without excessive insulin production. Sometimes, however, the cells become resistant to insulin's effects. When this happens, the pancreas pumps out ever-greater amounts of insulin in an attempt to force the glucose into the cells. This effort is only partially effective in most instances, and may result in higher blood glucose levels. High blood glucose levels are associated with diabetes, neuropathy, eye problems, heart disease and stroke. Life Extension believes that an optimal range for fasting blood glucose is 70 to 85 mg/dL, and insulin should be less than 5 µIU/mL. An 8 to 12 hour fast is required for this blood test. However, drink plenty of water and take your medications as prescribed.
    LEF: Glycomark Blood Test, 1 Test
    Are you a diabetic who routinely tests for hemoglobin A1C? Have you ever wondered if your HbA1C result of 7.0 was good or bad? The Glycomark® test can help. Assessing blood sugar spikes after eating can be challenging. The Glycomark® blood test measures a glucose-like sugar called 1,5-Anhydroglucitol (1,5-AG), and is a simple blood test used to measure post-meal glucose control. This blood test reflects your average maximum blood glucose and helps you know how many blood sugar spikes you have had over the last 10 to 14 days. Values above 14 are considered ideal. A value of 10 is considered "good". Anything lower is a sign of frequent blood sugar spikes. If your GlycoMark is 14, it means you achieved an HbA1C of 7.0 without lots of highs and lows. If your GlycoMark is 2, then you had lots of spikes and crashes to get that average. The ideal combination is a good HbA1c with a high GlycoMark. Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.
    LEF: Hemoglobin A1C HbA1C Blood Test, 1 Test
    Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) evaluates long-term blood sugar control and is one of the leading theories of aging. Serum glucose reacts with important proteins in the body rendering them nonfunctional in a process called glycation. Hemoglobin A1C is a reflection of this detrimental reaction. Doctors often follow this blood test in diabetics to monitor disease progression and the effects of treatment. Life Extension® believes an ideal HbA1C level to be <5.0. Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.
    LEF: Glucose Two hour Postprandial Blood Test, 1 Test
    A blood glucose test measures the amount of a type of sugar, called glucose, in your blood. Glucose comes from eating carbohydrates in food and is the main source of energy used by the body. Normally, your blood glucose levels increase slightly after you eat. This increase causes your pancreas to release insulin so that your blood glucose levels do not get too high. Blood glucose levels that remain high over time can damage your eyes, kidneys, nerves, and blood vessels. This test measures blood glucose exactly 2 hours after eating.
    LEF: Glucose Tolerance Test 4 specimens Blood Test
    A blood glucose test measures the amount of a type of sugar, called glucose, in your blood. Glucose comes from eating carbohydrates in food and is the main source of energy used by the body. Normally, your blood glucose levels increase slightly after you eat. This increase causes your pancreas to release insulin so that your blood glucose levels do not get too high. Blood glucose levels that remain high over time can damage your eyes, kidneys, nerves, and blood vessels. This test is usually used to help diagnose diabetes and/or pre-diabetes.
    LEF: Progesterone Blood Test, 1 Test
    Two recent studies of progesterone supplementation validate what the Life Extension Foundation® has contended for many years: restoring the body’s supply of natural progesterone confers multiple health benefits, including balancing blood sugar levels, promoting normal sleep, reducing anxiety, and stimulating new bone growth. Fasting is not required. Take all medications as prescribed. Progesterone supplements should be taken approximately 2 hours before the blood draw. Oral contraceptives will invalidate hormone results.

    This test checks for glucose in the urine. Glucose is not normally found in the urine; however, very small amounts may be found after the ingestion of large amounts of sweets. In most cases, any glucose found in a random urine sample should be investigated. Glucose in the urine is a warning signal for diabetes. There is also a serious condition, known as Low Renal Threshold, in which the kidneys allow glucose to be excreted. Any amount of glucose detected in the urine should be reported to your health care provider. About 16 million Americans have diabetes, but as many as half of them do not know it. If left untreated, diabetes can lead to blindness, stroke, kidney failure, heart attack and amputations. Diabetes symptoms are subtle and easily overlooked or explained away. Many times, diabetes will progress and manifest itself in other life threatening illnesses such as heart disease, neuropathy or kidney failure. With proper treatment diabetes can be controlled and complications avoided or delayed. Everyone should be aware of this disease and its symptoms, as it is much more common than in past years. Directions: Just dip in urine and read results.

  • DIABETIC NUTRITION RX PRODUCTS

    Excellent as a vitamin supplement with a combination of chromium picolinate, vanadyl sulfate, and other vitamins and minerals that work synergistically to regulate blood sugar levels and correct deficiencies. Diabetic Nutrition Rx is a supplement specifically designed for the special needs of diabetics. This product includes vanadyl sulfate which is a new form of vanadium, a substance which has shown to benefit diabetics greatly. Vanadyl sulfate acts as a insulin catalyst, enabling diabetics and borderline diabetics to efficiently use the insulin in their system. This is accomplished by the synergistic action of vanadyl sulfate which allows insulin absorption at the receptor site. The restriction or obstruction of insulin at the receptor sites, or insulin resistance, is the greatest problem diabetics face. Supplementation of vanadyl sulfate and chromium in synergistic ratios may help ease insulin resistance and lead to improved glucose metabolism. Diabetic Nutrition Rx contains chromium picolinate which has been shown to lower blood pressure and regulate blood sugar levels. Numerous studies have shown a strong correlation between a deficiency of chromium and adult onset of diabetes. Chromium may also increase the number of insulin receptor sites and help activate insulin receptors, making the receptor site more sensitive to insulin. Five crucial digestive enzymes which help diabetics digest proteins and carbohydrates have also been included in Diabetic Nutrition Rx. Because the diabetic pancreas slows or stops production of these important enzymes, it is important to supplement these enzymes for complete digestion and metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Diabetic Nutrition Rx also contains essential minerals and vitamins including calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium, vitamins A, B-1, B-3, B-6, selenium and zinc. All of these ingredients have been shown to be deficient in the diabetic patient. Careful attention has also been paid to the quality and dosage ratio values to insure optimum bioavailibility and assimilation of these nutrients. Diabetic Nutrition Rx is a new aggressive approach to meet the special nutritional needs of diabetics. Caution: If you have diabetes, consult with your health care provider before taking any supplement containing chromium. Take 5 capsules each day after meals. 1 capsules after breakfast, 2 capsules after lunch and 2 capsules after dinner.

    Amazon: Enzyme Spectrum Complete, 240 Caps
    Far Beyond Common Digestive Enzyme Products. Naturally and synergistically benefits digestion, Nutrient absorption and regulating inflammation. Now also combats phytic acid in your diet. As with many crucial nutrients; deficiencies in our water, soil and modern farming practices result in reduced levels of enzymes in our foods. Even if you eat many organic and raw foods, you are still lacking in enzymes. To help people get their requirements this supplement was created as a custom blend. Primary enzymes like Bromelain, Papain, Lipase and others of recognized function, and also some lesser-known bonuses such as Catalase have always been included. Now in 2013, the highly important enzyme Phytase has been added to the formula. Carried within both gluten and non-gluten containing grains and other common foods is a form of phosphorus called Phytic Acid, or Phytate. Your body cannot make use of Phytate so it bumps around causing inflammation, undesired mineral chelation and other problems. Although various amounts of both Phytate and Phytase enzymes are contained in many foods, unfortunately the problematic Phytate does not break down at cooking temperatures while Phytase is destroyed. Supplementing with Phytase provides a defense against reasonable levels of Phytate. It is doubtful that any level of supplemented Phytase can negate the regular consumption of grains, but it is nice to provide backup to those who want to minimize their exposure and consequences.

  • SORBITOL SUPPLEMENT PRODUCTS

    Sorbitol was first discovered in 1872 by a French chemist who was studying the berries of the mountain ash. Subsequent studies showed that Sorbitol occurs naturally in a wide variety of fruits and berries, but is also manufactured synthetically from glucose. Sorbitol is a sugar alcohol that the body uses slowly, and in fact, is also produced by the body; however, too much Sorbitol can cause damage to the cells. For the last 50 years, Sorbitol has been used safely as a sweetener in diet foods. It is as sweet as sucrose, but has one third the calories, and does not promote tooth decay. Sorbitol is non-cariogenic and can be a safe alternative sweetener for diabetics.

    Sorbitol is a natural sweetener and an excellent humectant and texturizing agent. At one time, it was used as a diuretic, and today is still has use as a laxative. It is also used in irrigating solutions for certain surgical procedures, manufacturing processes, as a pharmaceutical aid, and in several research applications. Sorbitol is also an ingredient in numerous skin car and oral care products. Sorbitol comes in crystal and liquid forms, and is an ingredient in many products. For best results, read and follow product label directions. Sorbitol is generally recognized as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is approved for use by the European Union and numerous countries around the world, including Australia, Canada and Japan.

    Xylitol VS Sorbitol: Some sugarless products are sweetened with sorbitol. And although both compounds are similar, xylitol is the better cavity fighter. From a standpoint of chemistry, sorbitol and xylitol are fairly similar compounds. Both are classified as sugar alcohols (or more formally "polyol's"). And, as their classification suggests, both can be used as a substitute for table sugar (sucrose). Of the two, sorbitol is the more widely used. It's common to see it listed as the sweetener in sugar-free products, especially chewing gum. One reason it's so popular with manufacturers is its cost. Sorbitol is less expensive than xylitol. Sorbitol does not share the same effectiveness in preventing tooth decay as xylitol. While consuming sorbitol-sweetened (sugar-free) products instead of regular ones can play an important role in reducing a person's decay rate, generally speaking sorbitol has limitations. Unlike xylitol, cariogenic bacteria (the bacteria that cause tooth decay) can ferment sorbitol, although they do it very slowly. That means, technically speaking, that it does promote their growth (although minmally) whereas xylitol does not. The digestion of sorbitol can, at least in theory, result in the formation of acidic bacterial waste products that might lead to tooth decay formation. (In the case of low to moderate sorbitol consumption, the quantity of acid produced should be of little clinical importance. In the case of a person with impaired salivary flow, however, the risk of sorbitol-initiated decay might be significant.) Because cavity-forming bacteria can ferment sorbitol (feed on it), it should be considered to be a low-cariogenic sweetener rather than a non-cariogenic one (like xylitol is). Using relatively moderate amounts of sorbitol-sweetened chewing gum, especially as a replacement for regular gum, can be a good thing. But, in terms of cavity prevention, it is not a better choice than the regular use of xylitol-sweetened products. Because sorbitol is cheaper than xylitol, a number of studies have evaluated products that have been formulated with both (as a cost-cutting measure). In general, blends of the two have been found to be more effective at preventing tooth decay than sorbitol alone, but less so than xylitol-only products.
