This Is a Type 2 Diabetes Secret.
The pancreas is not the only organ that controls blood sugar.
The reason you think that the pancreas is the sole player is because of insulin. And everyone thinks of insulin as a great things, that insulin’s your friend.
Well, insulin is necessary but insulin is not your friend. Insulin is inflammatory.
Insulin causes inflammation in your body and yes, the pancreas does make insulin–––but there are a couple of other players I need you to know about because if you’re reading this and you’ve been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes or your Doctor has warned you about it… or you’re worried about it because you know your blood sugars not controlled… There are some things you need to know because the pancreas is not the Alpha and the Omega of whether or not you develop type 2 diabetes. Of course it is important. Let’s talk about some of the other ones.
The Big 3 in Blood Sugar Control
In this article we will discuss the function of the liver and the adrenal glands. The thyroid factor is too complicated to discuss in a short article.
Liver-the liver stores glucose— blood sugar. The liver stores glucose in a form called glycogen. The liver has to be able to manufacturer’s ischemic glycogen so that it is available for use later when you need it. Alcohol, bad diet and medications can cause liver stress and malfunction. The liver malfunction can elevate your blood sugar and flag you as a type II diabetic or a prediabetic or having metabolic syndrome. What I’m telling you his if your Dr. isn’t looking at your liver function from a functional point of view, then I believe your Dr. is missing the boat.
If you get put on insulin, take a large red sharply and encircled today on your calendar, because that’s the day you stepped off a cliff…
Insulin is inflammatory. At the point most people get put on insulin, they have a condition called insulin resistance–––which means the cells aren’t paying attention to the signal that insulin is trying to give (get sugar out of the bloodstream and into the tissues.) They won’t let glucose or blood sugar into the cell soooooo……
Getting you more insulin just make sure more inflamed and there is a tremendous cardiovascular consequence from excessive insulin.
You could just do a search in the scientific literature and see that high insulin is terrible, terrible for you. So the liver is a key player that’s got to be looked at.
Adrenal Glands– The adrenal glands are the organs that help regulate your blood sugar. I’ll try to make it very simple. The adrenal glands make a hormone called cortisol. You may have heard of cortisol before, people say cortisol make you fat. Well, here is why cortisol make you fat and hears why cortisol is related directly to getting labeled with type 2 diabetes.
Cortisol frees up glycogen— the storage form of glucose. But— what cortisol will also do is make you insulin resistant! Insulin piles up outside the cells in your bloodstream and blood sugar piles up in your cells outside the bloodstream. If that goes on for very long you are going to have high blood sugar. Your hemoglobin A1C is going to be high. Your triglycerides were very high. You’ll get labeled with prediabetes or metabolic syndrome or type 2 diabetes.
If your doctor hasn’t looked at your adrenal glands, and then not taking deep enough.
If you are making too much cortisol or excessive cortisol, you’re very quickly going to become insulin resistant… And now the next question for the good health detective doctor is…
Why are you making excessive cortisol?
It could be a hidden infection. It could be stress. It could be a food sensitivity. Those can all be tested.
And my point is those are the things that could be causing your type 2 diabetes or you’re prediabetes.
So the secret today about type 2 diabetes is the pancreas is by no means the only organ involved in taking care of your blood sugar.
There is your liver, and there is your adrenal glands and they both have to be examined and tested to get the root of your type 2 diabetes.
