When labs show elevated blood sugar in a man, one thing I think of is:
1️⃣Insulin is the hormone needed to allow sugar to enter our cells.
2️⃣When cells stop responding to insulin (insulin resistance), blood sugar rises.
3️⃣Insulin resistance is worsened by low testosterone in men.
Also, according to the American Diabetes Association, men with diabetes are twice as likely to have low testosterone levels.
Here are some things anyone can do right now to support blood sugar balance:
✔️ Choose water over sugary drinks
✔️ Eat protein and vegetables with every meal
✔️ Go for a short walk after eating
