Thyroid Success Secrets #11 “Blood Sugar”

November 7, 2019 0 By Jose Scott


Hi, Dr. McCarthy again and today we’re
going to talk about thyroid treatment success secret number 11. Today we’re going to
talk about blood sugar and many people have had their blood sugar checked by
their traditional healthcare provider and say, oh I’ve had mine checked, its fine.The
lab says the normal range is 70 to 105, a very broad range. If you go above 105, 126, 106, up to 126, that can be turned to pre-diabetes and then if you go above
126 that’s when you could be classified as having diabetes. What’s most important
to remember though is that the lower ranges are very broad, we use a much narrower,
optimal range. In our testing we want to see your blood work come out between 85
and 99 but you’ve got to remember this has got to be a fasting test. Many times
people are going about to get their blood work done and they fasted for six
hours or they slow down a cup of coffee on their way in, that’s unacceptable, you’ve
got to learn how to do this the right way. In our office we are very strict, before we send someone out for blood work we explain to them exactly what they need
to do, what they have to do and what they cannot do. It’s very important, if you’re
going to take the time to run these tests, please run them the right way. So
again the condition that we’re talking about now with blood sugar dysregulation
means your normal is 85 to 99, typically we’ll see people with symptoms where
their blood sugar goes down below 85 and there up above 99, then below 85
and up above 99, all throughout the course of the day. They’re on this blood
sugar roller coaster. What we call that is not diabetes, but we call that
dysglycemia, going too high and too low throughout the course of the day, that is
terrible for your health. There’s absolutely no way we can help your
thyroid function properly, if this is the way you’re going to continue to live
your life. We teach all of our patients how to eat properly so that their blood
sugar is gentle, rolling hills instead of wildly fluctuating roller coaster rides.
Remember your brain is fuel and activation, the activation is movement,
the exercise, treatments that we do neurologically here in our office but the fuel
comes in the form of glucose and oxygen. The oxygen we covered in a previous
video on anemia and now we’re going to talk about the blood sugar, the food of
glucose. The food that you eat can get turned into glucose in your blood stream
to provide energy to all the cells in your body. What happens is you eat the food,
the glucose and it gets converted into triglycerides for fat storage and if
you’re eating high amounts of carbohydrates and it makes you tired,
that’s a bad situation, if you get sleepy after eating that then we know you’ve got
dysglycemia, you’ve got to watch what you’re eating. We tell you exactly what
to eat and when to eat to keep that normal blood sugar. Then the last thing we
talk about all of our patients people they wake up in the morning and either
they’re not hungry so they won’t eat breakfast or the breakfast will consist
of high carbohydrates which is basically plowing down the sugar. Carbohydrates get turned
into glucose, triglycerides and then piled away for fat storage, you can’t eat that way.
When you’re eating your sugar, your carbohydrates, you’ve got to include
protein. So protein will prevent that sharp spike of blood sugar and create a long
lasting surge to keep your your energy levels normal. If you have issues, you
think issues with your blood sugar and you
want to know for certain how to handle these problems, call my office now and
we’ll get you tested properly and we’ll figure out what’s going on. Don’t suffer
another minute. Thanks.
