The Link Between Diabetes and Hormones

Diabetes begins as a metabolic syndrome that features a combination of hormonal and nutritional imbalances. If these imbalances aren’t corrected, a pre-diabetic condition can turn into full-fledged diabetes. These hormonal imbalances can result in an inability for your body to produce the insulin that it needs to convert glucose into energy, a condition that is known as insulin resistance. When this occurs, your blood glucose levels will elevate, and you may experience complications and symptoms of diabetes. Likewise, if you suffer from glucose intolerance you may experience low blood sugar when your body doesn’t have enough glucose to use for fuel.

I am Thankful

Despite the problems and concerns I publicly write about regarding my diabetes life, I try to be a very positive minded person. Diabetes is complicated and frustrating, sometimes downright depressing. But having this disease has also taught me so many things that affect my perception of life and how it’s meant to be lived.

The Pressures of Figuring it all Out

When it comes to the medical community, sometimes I feel alone in dealing with my diabetes.  I feel like we are often left to be our own doctor and to figure things out by ourselves when blood sugars run high or low, or when illness strikes.  It really upsets me.  The nurse on the phone was giving me instructions for an upcoming surgery, and she told me that I should refrain from taking any insulin the morning of my scheduled surgery.
