Treating Low Blood Sugars Quickly

Unless you are eating a meal right away, the best treatment for lows is a combination of simple and complex carbohydrates plus some protein. Quickly treating lows lessens stress hormone release and lowers the chance of the blood sugar going high after a reaction. You'll feel better if the body is quickly resupplied with the fuel it needs. Your brain, muscles and other cells will thank you for not prolonging their misery. Treatment Plant For Hypoglycemia Eat 15 to 20 grams of fast acting carbohydrates immediately. Consider how much unused bolus insulin may still be active. Decide whether complex carbohydrates and/or protein are needed to keep you stable until you eat your next meal. Test your blood sugar 30 minutes later to make sure it has risen. Repeat step 1 if necessary. After a moderate or severe low blood sugar, wait 30 to 45 minutes before driving or operating machinery. A return to normal coordination and thinking is slower than the return to a normal blood sugar. You may need to eat more than 20 grams for a low: when you took a carb bolus for a meal but never ate it. when it has been only an hour or two since your last injection of rapid insulin. when you have been more phy Continue reading >>

Does Caffeine Raise Your Blood Sugar?

In a nutshell, the answer is: yes. But for some, the answer can be: no. For most, explains Gary Scheiner, CDE and author of “Think Like a Pancreas” and “Until There is a Cure,” caffeine does tend to raise blood sugar levels in people with diabetes approximately 1 hour after consuming it. Meanwhile, some people with diabetes seem to have no reaction at all, even to large servings of caffeine. “It does this,” explains Scheiner, “by promoting the breakdown of fat (rather than sugar) for energy and stimulating the liver’s breakdown of glycogen.” Glycogen is a form of stored energy (glucose) in the liver. But Scheiner emphasizes that small amounts of caffeine probably have little to no impact on blood sugar levels. Just how much caffeine are you getting in your favorite beverages or snacks? “Think Like a Pancreas” shares a thorough list of some common caffeine-containing foods: Jolt energy drink: 280 mg Stay-away pills: 100-200 mg Monster energy drink: 160 mg 5-Hour energy drink: 138 mg 8 oz Brewed coffee: 100-120 mg Espresso/Latte: 100 mg Red Bull: 80 mg 8 oz Instant Coffee: 60-80 mg Tea: 30-50 mg Soda: 30-45 mg Chocolate bar: 20-30 mg But this doesn’t mean you Continue reading >>

How To Maintain Normal Blood Sugar

If you are one of the millions of people who has prediabetes, diabetes, metabolic syndrome or any other form of “insulin resistance,” maintaining normal blood sugar levels can be challenging. Over the past several decades, these chronic disorders have swept through the U.S. and many other nations, reaching epidemic proportions and causing serious, but often preventable, side effects like nerve damage, fatigue, loss of vision, arterial damage and weight gain. Elevated blood sugar levels maintained for an extended period of time can push someone who is “prediabetic” into having full-blown diabetes (which now affects about one in every three adults in the U.S.). (1) Even for people who aren’t necessarily at a high risk for developing diabetes or heart complications, poorly managed blood sugar can lead to common complications, including fatigue, weight gain and sugar cravings. In extreme cases, elevated blood sugar can even contribute to strokes, amputations, coma and death in people with a history of insulin resistance. Blood sugar is raised by glucose, which is the sugar we get from eating many different types of foods that contain carbohydrates. Although we usually think o Continue reading >>
