    I'll answer this as a type 1 diabetic. My answer will reflect my condition and my body.
    My goal as a type 1 diabetic is to maintain my blood sugar level between 70 and 130 mg/dL. After I eat, I want my blood sugar level to be no higher than, say, 180 mg/dL. In order to achieve this, I have to balance the following factors:
    The total amount of carbohydrates present in the meal
    The total amount of fat present in the meal
    The total amount of "active insulin" already in my system from either my long-acting insulin or my insulin pump (one or the other, not both)

    Any recent exercise, emotional or physical stress, or loss of sleepTaking all this into account, I calculate my estimated "bolus" dose of rapid-acting insulin. This bolus should be enough to account for the
    expected increase in my blood sugar level as a result of the meal I am about to eat.
    Now, here's where things get tricky...
    Assuming I inject my bolus perfectly into a wad of subcutaneous fat tissue (rather than muscle or scar tissue), I have between 5 and 15 minutes before my bolus starts to enter my blood stream and reduce my blood sugar levels.
    Meanwhile, the amount of simple sugar in the food I am about to eat determines how fast that food will also start to "enter my bloodstream."
    If there isn't enough simple sugar, then my insulin will enter my bloodstream before the sugar does, causing hypoglycemia.
    If there is too much simple sugar, then my blood sugar will rise above the targeted 180 mg/dL, and will likely remain high even after my insulin bolus "does its job."
    So, ideally, I need to eat a meal with a good balance of simple and complex carbohydrates that matches up with how fast my insulin bolus works through my system. This is not always (or often) easy to achieve. Most people guess wrong far more often then they guess correctly. Welcome to type 1 diabetes.

Will You Experience A Huge Insulin Spike Or Rise In Blood Sugar After Cheating On A Keto Diet?

Ever hear the phrase, “I can look at food and get fat.” It turns out that there is more than a bit of truth to that phrase. The human body is a remarkable machine even if it can go wrong in some ways. When you think of it, it makes sense that the human body needs to prepare itself for a load of carbohydrate coming its way. One way this happens is through the tongue. Things like sweet receptors in the tongue can cause the pancreatic beta cells to produce insulin. This is the mechanism that makes artificial sweeteners so problematic. Even though it contains zero calories and no nutritional value, consuming the sweetener Splenda/sucralose spikes insulin 17%. It turns out that even seeing or smelling food spikes insulin. Again, this makes sense because often when we see or smell food that means we’re going to eat it. However, how strong of a response is very much an individual response governed by a person’s metabolism. See, I’m 1/4 Native American. I likely inherited a gene that makes things in the modern diet cause hugely abnormal responses in things like insulin and blood sugars. This makes a lot of sense since I was an obese 5 year old when obese 5 year olds were highly u Continue reading >>

Why Would Not Eating Cause A Rise In Blood Sugar?

Sorry, that’s what you get by chatting on line, or listening to quack medical theorists instead of asking me! Recently someone tried to tell me that “heartburn” (gastro-esophageal reflux) was caused by insufficient stomach acid, rather than too much acid! …A ton of ignorant people all over currently “believe” that they can cure all manner of disease by “alkalization of their bodies” via eating certain foods and drinking “alkaline water.” Both of these are abject nonsense without a lick of supporting data. Sadly, however, critical thinking is a dying phenomena now that people can Google whatever they want and ingest what first pops up as gospel. Here’s the real story: Soon after one eats, glucose is absorbed in the stomach and small intestine. From here it enters the blood circulation and is distributed throughout the body. At this time, glucose levels are rising. The rising glucose in the blood triggers the beta cells of the pancreas to produce and release the protein insulin into circulation, where it is also distributed to all the tissues and cells in the body. The insulin activates glucose transport into the cells, which use it as their primary fuel. As thi Continue reading >>

  • When Blood Sugar Rises

    That’s the whole point of insulin- to keep blood sugar within stable limits. When we eat, and glucose is absorbed into the blood, the blood level rises. As it rises, the brain triggers the pancreas. The pancreas makes and releases the insulin into the blood. As long as blood sugar is above a certain level, the insulin will be secreted to bring it to normal. The insulin works nearly instantly to cause cells to take in the glucose for energy. The ...
