Many people suffering from Type 2 diabetes and having difficulty balancing blood sugar have been given orders to exercise and lose weight too many times. If you are one of these individuals, you may have tried changing your diet and introduced some form of exercise to get your blood sugar under control. But just like many patients with abnormal sugar metabolism, one day you came to the conclusion that it is not so simple to lose those stubborn pounds, to keep your unruly appetite under control and to generate enough energy and stamina to keep up with your workout regimen. The pounds stay put, the energy stays low and the blood sugar monitor does not show optimum numbers no matter how hard you have tried.
If you are about to give up and reach for a chocolate cookie or that slice of bread you have been depriving yourself of for a month, stop and think. Why is your body not cooperating with your efforts? Is there a glitch in the pathways of your metabolism that prevents you from letting those pounds go?
The answer is YES. There is a glitch; more precisely, several glitches. Your diet choices and physical activity level do play significant roles in your health. But there are many other factors that influence your success in balancing blood sugar.
Now back to reality: while you are feeling stress, tossing and turning in your bed at night, sitting in front of your computer, or driving your car, your body is helping you to run from a dangerous animal; it is pumping your blood sugar higher and higher.
