Why Sensing.sugar?

When your body is out of sync, there are many signals. Our body makes energy from the food we consume. When our body is in disharmony, all aspects of our life change.
Pre-Diabetic or Diabetic signals

  • Lately, I have been feeling constant hunger.

    Your body converts the food you eat into glucose that your cells use for energy. But your cells need insulin to bring the glucose in. If your body doesn't make enough or any insulin, or if your cells resist the insulin your body makes, the glucose can't get into them and you have no energy. This can make you more hungry and tired than usual.

    I don’t feel the energy and feel tired all the time.

    Sugar is one of your body’s main sources of energy. If you have diabetes, your body’s inability to convert sugar into energy can lead to fatigue. This can range from a general worn-down feeling to extreme exhaustion.

    I feel thirsty all the time.

    You’ve had glass after glass of water, but you still feel like you need more. This is because your muscles and other tissues are dehydrated. When your blood sugar levels rise, your body tries to pull fluid from other tissues to dilute the sugar in your bloodstream. This process can cause your body to dehydrate, prompting you to drink more water.

  • I urinate more often late at night and can’t sleep.

    Drinking excessive amounts of water can cause you to urinate more. This may lead you to drink more fluids, which compounds the problem. Your body may also try to eliminate excess sugar through urination.

    I feel blurred vision and numbness in my feet at times.

    Abnormally high blood sugar levels can also lead to blurry vision. This is because fluid can shift into the eye duct. This typically resolves once your blood sugar levels are normalized. This isn’t the same as diabetic retinopathy, which occurs over time in people with chronically high blood sugar.

    I can’t focus and get irritated at simple things.

    When your body is not responding correctly to sugar balance, your entire system is out of sync. These rapid changes in blood sugar swings can cause rapid changes in a person's mood, such as making them sad and irritable.

How Our Bodies Turn Food Into Energy

All parts of the body (muscles, brain, heart, and liver) need the energy to work. This energy comes from the food we eat. Our bodies digest the food we eat by mixing it with fluids (acids and enzymes) in the stomach. When the stomach digests food, the carbohydrate (sugars and starches) in the food breaks down into another type of sugar, called glucose. The stomach and small intestines absorb the glucose and then release it into the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, glucose can be used immediately for energy or stored in our bodies, to be used later. However, our bodies need insulin in order to use or store glucose for energy. Without insulin, glucose stays in the bloodstream, keeping blood sugar levels high.

  • How the Body Makes Insulin

    Insulin is a hormone made by beta cells in the pancreas. Beta cells are very sensitive to the amount of glucose in the bloodstream. Normally beta cells check the blood's glucose level every few seconds and sense when they need to speed up or slow down the amount of insulin they're making and releasing. When someone eats something high in carbohydrates, like a piece of bread, the glucose level in the blood rises and the beta cells trigger the pancreas to release more insulin into the bloodstream.

    Insulin Opens Cell Doors

    When insulin is released from the pancreas, it travels through the bloodstream to the body's cells and tells the cell doors to open up to let the glucose in. Once inside, the cells convert glucose into energy to use right then or store it to use later.
    As glucose moves from the bloodstream into the cells, blood sugar levels start to drop. The beta cells in the pancreas can tell this is happening, so they slow down the amount of insulin they're making. At the same time, the pancreas slows down the amount of insulin that it's releasing into the bloodstream. When this happens, the amount of glucose going into the cells also slows down.

  • Balancing Insulin and Blood Sugar for Energy

    The rise and fall of insulin and blood sugar happens many times during the day and night. The amount of glucose and insulin in our bloodstream depend on when we eat and how much. When the body is working as it should, it can keep blood sugar at a normal level, which is between 70 and 120 milligrams per decilitre. However, even in people without diabetes, blood sugar levels can go up as high as 180 during or right after a meal. Within two hours after eating, blood sugar levels should drop to under 140. After several hours without eating, blood sugar can drop as low as 70.
    Using glucose for energy and keeping it balanced with just the right amount of insulin — not too much and not too little — is the way our bodies maintain the energy needed to stay alive, work, play and function even as we sleep.

    Insulin Helps Our Bodies Store Extra Glucose

    Insulin helps our cells convert glucose into energy, and it helps our bodies store extra glucose for use later. For example, if you eat a large meal and your body doesn't need that much glucose right away, insulin will help your body store it to convert to energy later.
    Insulin does this by turning the extra food into larger packages of glucose called glycogen. Glycogen is stored in the liver and muscles.
    Insulin also helps our bodies store fat and protein. Almost all body cells need protein to work and grow. The body needs fat to protect nerves and make several important hormones. Fat can also be used by the body as an energy source.

Understanding Diabetes

Reverse Your Diabetes.

If you are at a risk of Diabetes you can manage your condition with discipline, knowledge, and awareness of your own biological state. Minor adjustments in lifestyle, sleep, nutrition and physical activity can help change your Pre-diabetic or Diabetic condition. With an understanding of what affects you in your daily diet, managing your stress and sleep, and conducting daily mindfulness exercises like meditation and yoga can act as dramatic support systems in controlling and managing your Diabetes. If you are at high risk, your first step is to go see a doctor and conduct additional screening/ testing to fully analyse the condition.

Diabetes can be managed, controlled and even reversed with understanding and self-discipline. Rigorous screening/testing and adjusting your lifestyle and diet on regular basis alongside your medication can have a long-term permanent effect and possibility of reversal. Learn more about how to perform non-invasive, more frequent testing of your sugar levels and get control of your health.

It is never too late. Eastern science has always believed that our body is immensely resilient and fully capable of self-repair. You with your own insight, medical guidance and extreme focus on daily basis can recover from diabetic or pre-diabetic conditions over a sustained period in majority of the cases.

Test Frequently.

Be Aware. Be Healthy.

*Type 2 Diabetes is typically controllable. In some cases it is also reversible with dietary and lifestyle change over a sustained period along with the support of preventative supplements and medicine.
