DO YOU CRAVE SUGAR?

DO YOU CRAVE SUGAR?

DO YOU CRAVE SUGAR? THIS IS… “NATIONAL DIABETES MONTH” Can this be possible?.. Recent statistics have shown that 2/3rds of Americans are overweight or obese and that 30% of American children are obese. In addition, millions of us are in a state of insulin resistance, or pre-diabetes, that could progress into diabetes. According to the latest research out of the University of Missouri, one in four Americans are struggling with diabetes with the majority of them as type 2. Haven’t you heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Now imagine how you feel when you skip breakfast. Your body begins to run low on energy, and your fuel supply, like the engine in your car, begins to slow down thereby causing you to run on fumes. So, by mid morning, you grab a high-calorie food item like a muffin or donut to relieve your hunger. What happens next? This high calorie, sugary snack causes insulin to be released out of the pancreas into the bloodstream, while the body is trying to adapt to the surge in blood glucose from the snack just eaten. When this pattern is repeated throughout the day, blood sugar levels show sharp spikes-both highs and lows. Over time, the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas wear out leading to high levels of blood glucose which is called diabetes. Normal fasting blood sugar should be less than 100mg/dl. Diabetes can cause many serious health issues and is associated with obesity, heart disease, and increased mortality. It is the fifth deadliest disease in the United States. A preventative approach would be to make sure...

Do Men REALLY Go Through MENOPAUSE?

Do Men REALLY go through MENOPAUSE? Are you enjoying your life? Complete the attached Men’s Symptom Review at the bottom and send it to our office. We will evaluate it for FREE. What is Aging Male Syndrome? This syndrome that occurs to men between the approximate ages of 35 and 65 is a collection of symptoms that occur due to a decline in production of testosterone in a man’s body. Low testosterone levels in males are often associated with symptoms of aging and are referred to as andropause or male menopause. Testosterone is an important anabolic hormone in men, as it plays important roles in maintaining both physical and mental health. The decline of testosterone is normal in healthy males as they age. However, when hormone levels drop, some of the commonly exhibited symptoms include: Weight gain Difficulty sleeping Loss of sex drive/Erection problems Difficulties with memory/concentration Feeling irritable/angry/nervousness Loss of motivation Lower self confidence Tiredness/Loss of Energy Muscle Loss/Bone Density decreases Depression/Mood swings Increased Urination Hair Loss As testosterone levels decrease, so does high density lipoproteins with an increase in triglycerides. The visceral fat cells are the most insulin resistant cells in the human body. They have excess hormone binding receptors for cortisol and androgens and decreased receptors for insulin. The cortisol and insulin levels rise while progesterone, growth hormone and testosterone decline. The visceral fat cell with its increased receptors, blood supply and innervations, begins to collect more fat in the form of triglycerides. If this is not interrupted with natural hormone balancing, it will lead to abdominal obesity, diabetes and high cholesterol, which is known as...

Tired? Sleepy? Stressed and Don’t Know Why?

Tired? Sleepy? Stressed and Don’t Know Why? If you have symptoms involving: fatigue, insomnia, stress, frequent illness, PMS, hot flashes, blood sugar, and weight, you may want to consider having your cortisol levels as well as hormones tested. Men and women over the age of forty may want to do a baseline test. Frequently imbalances will be detectable for a time period before symptoms gain attention. Difference Between Saliva & Serum Hormone Testing? Saliva testing is an EASY and a NONINVASIVE way of assessing one’s hormone status and is proving to be the most reliable medium for measuring hormone levels. The difference between steroid hormones in saliva and serum is based on whether or not the hormones are bound to proteins in the medium used for testing. The majority of hormones exist in one of two forms: FREE (5%) or PROTEIN BOUND (95%). It is only the FREE hormones that are biologically active, or BIO-AVAILABLE, and available for delivery to receptors in the body. Those which are protein bound do not fit those receptors and are considered not bio-available. When blood is filtered through the salivary glands, the BOUND HORMONE COMPONENTS ARE TOO LARGE to pass through the cell membranes. Only the UNBOUND hormones pass through and into the saliva. What is measured in the saliva is the BIO-AVAILABLE hormone, the clinically relevant portion which will be delivered to the receptors in the tissues of the body. SALIVARY HORMONE levels are expected to be much lower than serum levels, as only the UNBOUND hormones are being measured. When your doctor measures serum hormone levels and prescribes hormone replacement therapy...
