Newsletter – January 2016 – Lisa Lindsey
Would you recognize the symptoms of diabetes? Do you know the difference between the various types? They are quite different! It seems like everyone knows that it involves blood sugar levels, but exactly why is it so low or so elevated? What’s the problem? As a hint, it is not a one to one direct relationship with how much sugar you eat.
Diabetes is referred to as a metabolic disorder meaning it has to do with the way our bodies use digested food for energy and growth. Anything that crosses the lips and teeth into the mouth, via a dentist or by your own hand, as soon as it crosses that threshold, it becomes part of the body and is subject to its very well organized survival systems. Certainly, diabetes was not built into one of those systems as part of normal operation, so there must be something each of us can do for prevention, control and even elimination of this disease.
Let’s ask Lisa Lindsey! She has answers and so will you after watching this interview. Enjoy!
And, Happy New Year to all of you!
