Hypoglycaemia
Blood sugar levels change often during the day. When they drop below 70 mg/dL, this is called having low blood sugar. At this level, you need to take action to bring it back up. Low blood sugar is especially common in people with type 1 diabetes

Can anyone relate!?
Whenever I tell people I have diabetes, they often respond with “omg! I don’t know how you do it! I could never deal with that, you’re so brave/strong/incredible!” And I usually say “oh it’s not a big deal. I’m used to it!” And that’s not necessarily a lie. I think I am used to it. I’ve been going through the motions for almost 24 years. 8,760 days. 210,240 hours. 12,614,400 minutes. And most of the days, hours, minutes I do feel like I’m used to it. But the nights always feel different. When my low alarm goes off and I quietly drag my limp body out of bed trying not to wake the rest of the house as they sleep soundly. When I linger to the kitchen and grab a juice box, fumbling it in my hand and haphazardly trying to get that dang straw in the seemingly impossibly small hole. As I lean over the counter and try to keep myself afloat and pray I don’t fall asleep standing up. Those are the moments I often question if I really will ever get used to this. I question why ME? Why was I chosen to be the person that has to deal with this at 3 am while everyone else gets to sleep soundly not worrying about chugging sugar while half asleep literally just to keep themselves alive? It all seems so unfair in those moments. I feel like the only person in the world standing there right that second dealing with the repercussions of a disease I did absolutely nothing to obtain. But there’s always one small thing that I remind myself. I’m NOT the only one dealing with it. At that exact moment that I’m standing there drinking a juice box in the dark, I can bet that there’s another diabetic somewhere standing in their kitchen gulping a juice with me. This disease can feel so very lonely, but we truly are never alone. So next time you feel like you’re standing in your kitchen by yourself, just remember I’m probably right there with you🙏

Food freedom awaits you on the other side..
Sugar is a delicious but addictive drug. I’ve had people tell me they had an easier time quitting alcohol and tobacco then sugar. And if you think you’re not addicted to sugar, but you “can’t live without” bread or any starchy food, that’s still 100% sugar when it’s digested. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Most of us have or had that problem at some point. What matters is what we do with this problem. If sugar was harmless, I’d be the first to eat it regularly, but sugar is sweet and deadly, but it kills you slowly. We are hard wired evolutionary to seek out sweet food in nature because it used to be very rare, so getting access to such excess energy, meant the difference between surviving winters or risking dying from starvation. Our modern food is loaded with sugar. Food companies took advantage of the addictive nature of sugar to drive profit selling us nothing but addictive junk that you can’t stop eating. Where do you start? 1. You have to admit to yourself that you have a problem with sugar and that your health is suffering because of it. 2. You decide that you WILL quit sugar. 3. You design your life to minimize exposure to it in your home environment. You have to abstain to have a chance. 4. When you relapse, you have to try again and again. For some, including myself, once we kick the addiction and our body heals and tastebuds reset, sugar stops having a hold on us. I can now have something sweet on occasions and never overdo it. I feel in control to stop after a few bites and getting satisfied before I pay the price. You CAN quit sugar! You MUST quit sugar if you have any metabolic health issues.

I dont like the stuff thats fake I want to drink sweet tea But my kidney disease wont let me! Complaining, whining, cry babying. Definately not helping. And guess what God told me? Look below and see... Because your body is changing, does not mean you've lost yourself. Your body does not define who you are your spirit does. Amen!
