Thank you for sharing this information, guys! I love this thread.
Ricky, I was informed that any fat helps to moderate the rise and fall of blood sugar levels. For example the more fatty the food (butter), the
slower and gentler the arc will be... which is good for us. I personally never ever worry about the fat content of meat, veggies, nuts, or fruits. I
heard in addition to coconut oil, cinnamon helps too. And also, cucumbers are good for the kidneys.... which is important. I never knew about the
potatoes and D3, but that must be why I crave potatoes from time to time! Or about the cramping. I heard dehydration and potassium deficiency can
cause leg cramping as well.
DrogoTheNorman, I have been taking regular over the counter magnesium off and on to help with bowel movements ever since I was diagnosed with
diabetes, lol. And by off and on I mean almost everyday but sometimes going a couple of weeks without.
I haven't experienced any tingling feet yet but all this information is good to know, in case.
My type is actually the auto-immune disorder one where my body produces the antibodies that attack the islets on my pancreas. I think the onset (gene
expression) probably has something to do with stress imho, since we're all sharing. But diet and vitamin deficiency could definitely have aided that
process... or perhaps even dehydration.
I have read that stress wears and tears on the body via. stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, each pulls energy away from your vital organs
and immune system and puts that energy into your muscles in order to prepare you for a fight or flight situation- like if you were facing a mountain
lion or bear. But these days we get stress from none physical entities, like bills and finances... or social relationships. And we can't fight or
flight with those, and too much stress will weaken the immune system because of the over production of stress hormones wrecking havoc on the body and
the body is not properly responding to the stress by fighting or flighting, physically, like it needs to (we can't punch our back accounts into
But... if we ate better? And exercised? That could eliminate a lot of damage the stress does to our bodies... the exercise is vital because it uses
up the energy that stress puts into your muscles. Like it's supposed to. As if you're tricking your body into thinking it is really tackling the
stressful situation properly. And the diet is equally vital because if we don't get what we need nutritionally, then our muscles won't build and our
bodies won't get a good rest (we need specific stuff to get a healthy rest), and etc.
I often feel like we are all just robots. The body is so machine like.
