Did you know that if you are going through menopause it could be impacting your diabetes blood sugar levels?
Yes, it’s true! Your female hormones, estrogens and progesterone affect your cells’ sensitivity to insulin.
So as your menopausal symptoms have gotten worse, your blood sugar levels have also become less predictable.
Why does one of your health conditions affect another? It is happening because your hormones impact one another.
As you move into menopause the levels of estrogen being produced in the ovaries begin to decline.
Estrogen has a protective effect on pancreas cells and prevents them from premature cell death. It also works on the cells of the pancreas to increase the production of insulin when required by certain conditions, such as diabetes.
The decline in estrogen seems to cause the cells to become more insulin resistant, exacerbating blood glucose levels circulating in the body.
Insulin resistance causes cells to not absorb glucose from the bloodstream as readily so blood glucose levels get higher. This causes a higher probability of high blood sugars and diabetic complications over time.
So what is the solution to this seemingly-complicated situation where menopause and diabetes co-exist in your body?
Control your blood sugar levels with a balanced diet, like the Manna Weight Loss Program, exercise, enough sleep, good quality clean water and a natural supplement like the Manna Blood Sugar Support with each meal.
It is important to monitor your blood sugar levels consistently during menopause and pay attention to lifestyle behaviors that support healthy blood sugar levels: exercise, stress management and food choices.
Increase your estrogen levels the natural way with the Manna Menopause Support supplement which can help to overcome the symptoms of menopause.
