Sugar Rush

Fighting diabetes with health activities and Solanova supplements

Remember when you were eight, and the coolest holiday by far was Halloween? Not only could you wear your awesome Superman outfit or princess garb in public without condemnation, but your reward for all this creativity?  Giant bags of overflowing candy!  How could life possibly get any better?

Ah, those were the days.

Now you have to read every label of everything you consume for its sugar content because your doctor has warned you that you are a borderline type 2 diabetic.   All of a sudden you’re noticing that the jam you spread on your toast, the trusty cereal you’ve been eating for years, and the orange juice that you’re absolutely sure you can’t live without, all have insane amounts of sugar in them that your body is finding it harder and harder to negotiate.

But knowledge is power.  It’s important to go to your annual medical check ups and get things like your blood sugar tested.  It provides a benchmark for where you are and where your future health is headed.  And while something like a possible type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes diagnosis can be upsetting, there are things that can be done to maintain your health and perhaps even head the diagnosis off at the pass.

Exercise for better health.  We all know that it can help fight heart disease, high blood pressure and keeps our weight under control, but it can also mitigate stress and blood sugar levels.  And eating right, i.e. foods that are low in fat, full of fiber and that have less sugar can also contribute to lower blood sugar levels.  Certain vitamins and supplements too can be added to the mix for better nutritional and blood sugar support.

See?  With a little diligence, life can be pretty sweet after all.
