In the last several years there has been a lot of controversy about how much mercury we, as humans, can be exposed to before our health starts to suffer. How much exposure is too much? As a result, many of my patients have asked me about mercury exposure and what they can do to better protect their health. Although the effects of mercury on human health are not always clear, one health concern in particular, blood sugar levels, has become clearer.
Adult onset diabetes is a complicated condition. It’s the result of poor dietary and lifestyle habits. These bad habits trigger frequent blood sugar spikes in your system. Your body responds by over-producing insulin. This creates a vicious cycle that leaves you with high blood sugar and insulin resistance… that means your body no longer uses insulin as well as it’s supposed to. This cycle ultimately results in diabetes. But, by giving your body the tools it needs to manage blood sugar and insulin you can break this cycle.

Whenever I inform my patients that they may be suffering from juvenile diabetes, better known as Type 1, the reaction is often the same. “How can I have juvenile diabetes when I am not an adolescent?” This is a very good question and one worth explaining.

We all love to eat, but unfortunately everything we love to eat has some traces of sugar in it. Sugar is not always a bad thing. All our cells and organs depend on it, including our muscles and brain, and it serves as an important source of energy. Although we can’t exist without it, there is a darker side to sugar. When consumed in certain forms or in excess, sugar has damaging effects on our health. In particular, high insulin levels, a risk factor for diabetes, are closely related to sugar. Let’s take a closer look at what this food does to the body.
