High Blood Sugar Despite No Dietary Sugar?
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with High Blood Sugar Despite No Dietary Sugar??
hi I’m back and we’re gonna answer the
question why is it that someone could potentially have high blood sugar in the
morning when they’re absolutely eating no sugar whatsoever that’s very very
weird and sometimes when a person then eats their first meal the sugar comes
down so what’s going on with that well actually this is what’s happening your
liver is making the sugar and the name for that is called gluconeogenesis
Genesis means make neo means new gluco means sugar so the liver is making new
sugar out of either protein or ketones or fat another term for that is called
de novo of synthesis of glucose so your body is making it without it coming from
the diet now the question is why does that occur now just so you know a little
bit of that is a normal body response in other words everyone has a little bit of
this going on due to several hormone fluctuations that occur as a circadian
wave throughout the night and the day so it involves growth hormone adrenaline
and cortisol and to a very small degree you’re going to have blood sugar
fluctuations through the night into the day and when you have too much of that
it’s called a dawn phenomena where you wake up and your blood sugar is too high
that’s because you have insulin resistance insulin resistance makes this
condition a lot worse it exaggerated s’ the condition where you’re waking up and
your blood glucose is a hundred and twenty and it really has to do with
insulin insulin is a hormone that stores fat it’s also supposed to block this
from happening right here when you have insulin resistance you’re not absorbing
insulin in the cells so in certain places of your body you don’t have
enough insulin in other places you have too much so this really is an insulin
deficiency because insulin is supposed to suppress the production of glucose
alright that being said let’s just talk about normal blood sugars normally you
should have a blood sugar about eighty now what does that mean that means that
if we take all of your blood in your body the amount of sugar that would be
dissolved in all of your blood if you had your blood sugars about eighty would
be one level teaspoon of sugar five grams of sugar for every ten points that
your blood sugar goes up from 80 to a 90 that’s an increase of a half a gram so
when your blood sugar is 120 that means you have an extra two grams of sugar in
all of your blood it’s not an outrageous amount of sugar so this would be a
little less than a half a teaspoon of sugar so right there you should know
that this is not a serious situation and you’re not going to start to create a
lot of problems throughout the body because your body is making it there’s
an imbalance how can we correct this number one you just have to realize that
it’s going to take more time okay you have insulin resistance so just keep
doing what you’re doing and give it more time and I’m talking about doing keto
and intermittent fasting by the book it over time you’ll see it’ll get better
and better and better you could also take things to speed up the process like
potassium magnesium zinc and vitamin b12 all of these will help you speed up the
resolution of insulin resistance and the last thing you can do and you can do
this in the morning when you wake up you can go for a nice walk walking for about
20 minutes should easily burn off this extra sugar you can do other workouts as

Do you still have high blood sugar in the morning, even without consuming sugar? Here’s what you need to know.
0:50 Why does this happen?
1:20 The dawn phenomenon
2:15 Blood sugar
3:18 What you can do
Today we’re going to talk about why you might have high blood sugar in the morning even though you’ve had zero sugar. You might even have your first meal and notice that your blood sugar levels actually go down. What’s up with that?
Your liver is actually what’s making the sugar. The name for this is called gluconeogenesis. The liver is making new sugar out of protein, ketones, or fat.
Everyone has a little bit of this going on. To an extent, this is a normal reaction due to hormone fluctuations. To a very small degree, you’ll have blood sugar fluctuations throughout the night and throughout the day. But, when you have too much of this, it’s called the dawn phenomenon.
The dawn phenomenon is a situation where you wake up, and your blood sugars are too high. This is likely due to insulin resistance. Insulin resistance makes the dawn phenomenon a lot worse.
All of this goes back to insulin, which stores fat, and is supposed to keep gluconeogenesis from happening. When you have insulin resistance, in certain parts of your body, you don’t have enough insulin. But, in other parts of the body, you have too much insulin.
A normal blood sugar level is about 80. This would mean you have about 1 level teaspoon of sugar in all of your blood or 5 grams. For every 10 points that your blood sugar goes up, that’s an increase of 1/2 gram. If your blood sugar is 120 in the morning, this means you have an extra 2 grams of sugar in all of your blood. This is not an outrageous amount that will cause a lot of problems.
What you can do if you have high blood sugar in the morning:
1. Give it time
2. Take things to speed up the process (potassium, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B12)
3. Exercise (walk for about 20 minutes)
