Do you know your fasting Glucose Level?

“Were people to continue filling their car’s tank, they would find when it reaches FULL, attempting to pump more gas would create a wet, stinking mess.  People keep eating sweets and filling their bodies with glucose and have little regard for the deadly consequences because the too-much point is all internal.  There is no wet, stinky puddle to stand in. Even slightly elevated levels of glucose can create deadly effects.  The Center for Disease Control states diabetes diagnoses will triple by the year 2050.  Do you know what your blood sugar level is?  Bottom line:   Less sugar intake = longer life.

  • Eat fresh organic fruits and vegetables instead of processed food
  • Read labels–sugar (including high fructose corn syrup) is in almost everything.
  • Eliminate sugar (note to self – get real – that’s not going to happen).  At least decrease it by 50% to start.
  • Get a fasting blood glucose test every 4 to 6 months and keep doing so until a 50 mg/dL level is attained.
