Diabetes Awareness Month

November is Diabetes Awareness month

Did you know on in 10 Americans have diabetes.  That is more then 30 million Americans. 86 million have Pre-diabetes.

Diabetes is up there with the leading cause of disability and death in the United states.

So many problems can happen when a person has diabetes.  It can cause blindness, nerve damage, kidney disease and many other health problems if it’s is not under control.

On a good note people who have a high risk for type 2 diabetes can lower their risk if they start making healthy changes in there life.  Here are a few examples of healthy changes they can make:

  • Eating healthy food.  Really paying attention to what you are eating is key.
  • Getting more physical exercise.

This month I try to share my own journey of thriving with diabetes and what that picture looks like.  We all can make a difference this month and raise awareness  about the diabetes risk factors. I have a few ideas about other ways we all can help make this month a success.  Here are few:

  • Encourage people to spread the word about diabetes and even if they have the smallest feeling they may have it tell them to get tested and also get their blood pressure and cholesterol checked.
  • Encourage friends family and people in your community to make small changes.  Park far away from the store to get a few extra steps.  Take stairs and not the elevator.

Doing these small things can make big differences!!

The struggle is real!

Anyone struggle with Hormones and Thyroid issues?? #thestruggleisreal
Age 51 was when I started not feeling like myself.   My Dr. Just kept treating my symptoms and not listening to me. I finally had enough of that and found a awesome nurse practitioner who specialized in hormones & thyroid. I knew I wasn’t losing my mind and just gaining weight out of nowhere . I was still eating low carbs and it seemed like a mystery. This practitioner tested me for everything under the sun!  Come to find out low thyroid and non-functional adrenal glands were the culprit. I started on medication for my thyroid and she put me on awesome supplements to help my adrenals.

Now six months later the weight is coming off but that’s along with doing low carbohydrates lots of vegetables, and getting proper sleep. Those are the most important things to do when you have thyroid issues. it’s also important to do weight lifting.
For woman over 50 your body really starts to change and cardio does not do what it did when you were in your 20s and 30s and even when you were in your 40s. Weightlifting however builds muscle and burns fat. So although it’s important to do some cardio for good heart health you also raise your heart rate when you are weight lifting. amazingly enough send March 27th I have lost 26 pounds. I have more energy than I used to but come to find out just from recent blood work my thyroid is still slightly low. So again we’ve adjusted my medication adjusted some supplements and I’m sure I’ll feel even better than I do now a month from now.

Also many of the supplements that I am taking ate for good gut health. ***Always remember your best health advocate. Never settle for a doctor that is not listening. Shop around there’s lots of great doctors out there!!
Here is a face by face pic. I will post when I have a body by body pic.
