Name: Health & Wellness Wednesday via ZOOM
Date: October 28, 2020
Time: 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM PDT
Event Description:
This October's presentation will be hosted by Dr. Christopher Jacobs, founder and inventor of Genteel.

Topic: Diabetic or Not: What your blood sugar levels mean for long term health, and how to protect yourself.

There is a mistaken belief that if your doctor doesn’t tell you that you have diabetes, you don’t have to pay attention to your blood sugar levels. Unfortunately, with today’s processed foods and the addition of sugar, especially high fructose corn syrup, in such a high percentage of what we put in our mouths, blood sugar levels can spike momentarily. Also, we are all different and what would spike your blood sugar may have little effect on your friend’s blood sugar, and visa versa.

Each time our blood sugar spikes it causes a small amount of damage to our body, in general, and specifically to the small capillaries throughout our body, such as in our eyes and ears. In the long run that damage builds up and, as we age, we can suffer a myriad of ailments that we might associate with normal aging, but which could be avoided if we paid simple attention to and took control of our blood sugar.

The parameter that doctors check to see how high your blood sugar level is “A1c”. An A1c of below 6 is considered acceptable; below 5 is considered excellent. The problem is that A1c is an indicator of your “average” blood sugar level and does not necessarily reflect how many short- term peaks you are experiencing.

This talk will clarify the mystery and mis-information about blood sugar and will discuss how, using simple, readily available equipment, you can, and should, map your personal blood sugar so you can not only improve your A1c, but also significantly reduce or even eliminate blood sugar cell damaging spiking.
