Maybe you’re frequently urinating. Or you’re exhausted all the time. You might even be plagued by headaches.
Surprisingly, all of this, and more, might be attributed to an imbalance in your blood sugar.
Your body is trying to tell you that something is wrong.
These signs might be subtle or they could be flashing in red neon.
What to Look for
As we know, everyone is unique. But here are a few common signs that might mean it’s time to look at working to balance your blood sugar.
- Cravings for carbs and sugar
- “Crashing” or feeling exhausted after eating a big carb load
- Intense thirst
- Becoming “hangry” if you miss a meal
The Good News
If you’re at risk for diabetes or prediabetes, you can help yourself. Even making minor adjustments to the way you eat, stopping smoking and increasing your physical activity, can lower your risk for blood sugar imbalance problems.
Unstable blood sugar is the reason behind many of our health symptoms – exhaustion, insomnia, anxiety, depression and brain fog – but it is something you can start doing something about right now.
What You Can Do
You have the power to manage your blood sugar imbalance (in medical terms: dysglycemia).
- Start with a breakfast of high quality protein and fats.
- Eat a well-balanced diet that includes vegetables, protein and fats.
- Figure out what your carb tolerance is and stick with it.
