Diet and Diabetes – Gary Ferone

As food is digested, it is broken down into glucose which is also known as sugar which provides energy and powers our cells. Insulin which is a hormone made in the pancreas moves the glucose from the blood to the cells. If there is not enough insulin or the insulin is not working properly, then the glucose stays in the blood as well as causes blood sugar levels to rise. There are three main types of diabetes are type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes. Type 1 is caused from the pancreas no longer being able to make insulin and is usually found in children, teens and young adults.

Gestational diabetes can also occur near the end of a woman’s pregnancy and usually disappears after the baby’s birth. When poorly controlled diabetes causes blood glucose levels that are too high or too low, one may not feel well and diabetes that is poorly controlled over time can lead to complications that affect the body from head to toe. Issues can also occur with everything from one’s eyes, kidneys and nerves to reproductive organs, blood vessels and gums. Processed foods as well as items high in fat or sugar not only can disrupt the balance between glucose and insulin which results in inflammation.

Advantages of Water – Gary Ferone

Water helps in many different types such as helps the body in removing all types of waste, prevents the body from becoming dehydrated, aids in digestion, helps in protecting the joints, tissues as well as spinal cords, etc. Water also keeps the tissues inside the body moist other than regulating the body’s temperature as well as quenching the thirst and one’s body retains the optimum levels of moisture in bones, brain, blood as well as sensitive areas by keeping the body hydrated.

Water acts as a lubricant as well as cushion for the joints and it also helps in protecting the spinal cord and the adequate amount of water helps the body to excrete through urination, defecation as well as perspiration. The intestines, liver as well as kidneys uses the water to help flush out the waste from the body and it also helps in moving the food that have been eaten through the intestinal tract as well as softening the stools and it also keeps the body from getting constipated. Digestion relies on some of the enzymes which are found in the saliva which helps in breaking down the liquid as well as the food and to dissolve other nutrients as well as minerals.
