New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with How High Blood Glucose Levels Destroy 4 Organs?
so I want to discuss how high blood sugar has the potential of destroying your organs and exactly what you should do about it okay it’s called gluco toxicity the toxicity of glucose which is sugar so there’s a couple things that happen number one you get a massive oxidation effect oxidation is similar to rust on your car okay so you’re getting this breakdown of this material this can happen in the arteries and your brain and your nerves and then what happens your body starts healing it with proteins calcium cholesterol as a plaque okay so you start getting plaquing that’s the band-aid that happens after oxidation and by the way diabetics that consume more antioxidants from real food can lower the affect of this okay then we have glycation what is that glycation is the effect of heating up and combining glucose with the protein for example if you were to eat barbecued ribs for example you would get glycation glycation has effect of altering your proteins in the body and making them unusable and creating a lot of damage throughout the tissues and this can happen anywhere in the body but there are four main organs that are affected when you have high sugar number one is the kidney sugar is very damaging to the kidney eventually the person ends up on dialysis because it will literally destroy the kidney when you have glucose in the urine for example because you have so much sugar coming out your body is trying to get rid of it as a toxic material but all that glucose is basically destroying the the filter the kidney is the filter that filters blood and you ends up as urine and then you can’t filter anymore and then you actually need Dallas’s okay number two the eyes number one it’ll affect the tiny blood vessels in the back of the eye that feed the retina okay which is a nerve that goes right into your brain so the retina it has optical tissue and it’s an extension of your brain sticking out there and there’s all these little blood vessels that it needs to feed that nerve tissue well high sugar destroys the blood vessels which then destroy the nerves and that’s why the end product having diabetes you end up going blind okay so it affects the retina it affects the pressure in the eye is glaucoma it affects the lens as cataracts and maybe a personal experience when your blood sugars are even low because the insulin is high pushing them down sometimes like you’re blurry you can’t see as well next one is the vascular system okay I’m talking about the blood vessels to the heart to other parts of the tissue the vascular system becomes stiff and you get oxidation within the wall of the arteries and that’s where you see the plaque that’s where you see the clots that form that can eventually turn into a stroke but it’s the gluco toxicity that destroys the vascular system and this is why diabetics end up with so many heart problems so we have the effect of the arteries directly we have the muscle and we also have the electrical system of the heart so they have arrhythmias okay next one is the nerves okay and the brains I’m considering this as one but the nerves are affected primarily the blood vessels or the capillaries that feed the nerves okay starting off in the peripheral nerves and your fingertips and your toes okay on the bottom of the feet though you’ll start feeling tingling numbness burning maybe just pain and then just complete you can’t feel that anymore what’s happening is you’re destroying the nerves the remedy for that is vitamin b1 in the form of a fat-soluble B one it’s called been thought to mean if you have peripheral neuropathy if you take that you can reverse that effect and the reason for that is that we’re dealing with oxidation and vitamin b1 is like an antioxidant so it can protect the complications from the high sugar it can affect the autonomic nervous system and create a condition called gastroparesis which is basically you eat food and it doesn’t digest that fast it’s very slow going through the digestive tract and also the valves on top of the stomach and even the bottom of the stomach is controlled by the autonomic nervous system okay that’s part of the nervous system that can get destroyed then we have this thing called the brain gets destroyed the vascular system that goes in the brain the oxygen shuts down your brain actually shrinks when you have high sugar you destroy the neurons it’s called diabetes type 3 and then there goes the memory there goes the learning there goes the cognition but it’s really the toxic the effect of this glucose that’s actually starts the whole cycle all right now you have diabetes right okay well you just don’t wake up one day and get diabetes you have pre-diabetes before that and a pre-diabetes you have roughly fasting sugar is between 100 and 125 okay and then when it gets above that 126 or greater on two different tests you’re considered a diabetic okay so diabetes is too much sugar or it’s hyperglycemia all right so then you take medication the question you have to ask yourself is what is the medication doing with that high sugar is it making it evaporate now it’s cramming it from the blood into some other place okay so it’s gonna be storing and as fat around the organs so really we’re just taking one problem and putting the problem somewhere else it doesn’t solve any problem this is why you have to keep taking the medication over and over and over again but what happens before the pre-diabetes that’s the big question okay because sometimes when you go your doctor they’ll test your sugars and they say well you’re pre-diabetic you might want to watch your weight right go to a dietician and then we’ll check you in six months okay come back six months later it might be fine good come back in the year come back later and OH yep you’re officially diabetic we’re gonna put you on medication okay but this whole thing can be prevented because there’s something that occurs before even the pre-diabetes okay because it takes like 10 years for this to happen there’s high insulin okay hyperinsulinemia that’s what it’s called they never test your fasting insulin only the fasting glucose big huge mistake I want to show you something this is very interesting I’ll put this article down below a high fasting plasma insulin concentration basically high blood fasting insulin predicts type 2 diabetes independent of insulin resistance evidence for a pathogenic role in relative hyperinsulinemia okay what does all that mean it means that high insulin can predict diabetes okay in order to prevent diabetes you need to know what happens before diabetes okay all right so what do we do next okay well we go to the expert we go to Google okay dr. Google and we type in hyperinsulinemia and on a wiki page you’ll see some data on this right here okay and I’m gonna go directly down to the causes and this is what they said four things I’m glad they narrowed it down neoplasm that’s a tumor pancreatic cancer all right polycystic ovarian syndrome and trans fats okay now what are they missing a high carbohydrate diet okay because insulin responds to glucose all right that’s what it does what happens you eat a high carbohydrate diet insulin gets triggered and it pushes the blood sugars down that’s the mechanism so the high carbohydrate diet is what’s really behind this but they don’t mention it anytime you try to solve a problem and you’re operating off of missing information especially something like that you are not going to be able to solve this problem high insulin comes before hyperglycemia so what happens do you have high sugar okay the body’s gonna then start protecting the cells by creating something called insulin resistance the high insulin is keeping the sugar in check for many years you’re having symptoms though because there’s a lot of problems with high insulin just as many as high sugar okay like frequent urination thirst blurred vision belly fat fatigue forgetfulness inflammatory conditions and the list goes on and on and on and on right so then you develop insulin resistance sooner or later and now what happens your insulin goes down a little bit in the blood okay it’s going up in other parts of the tissue to compensate but in the blood it goes down and then the sugar starts going up because you don’t have enough insulin to push it down okay and this gets worse and worse to the point where you start having this higher level of sugar and realize in the beginning of diabetes type 2 we not only have high sugar but we also have high insulin and so medically their goal is to lower the blood sugar but they’re not focused on the insulin because that would mean acknowledging that high carbohydrate diets are behind this but that’s just one huge connection they don’t want to validate okay they don’t want to acknowledge high carb causes high insulin okay there is a tremendous amount of damage in the body well before you get diabetes okay there’s oxidation and the arteries there’s things brewing there’s all sorts of things happening all right so now what is the solution very simple go to the experts okay go to Google type in the best diet for diabetes and just take what the first thing that shows up okay that’s from Hopkins University for yours people diabetes were warned to avoid sweets but what research understands I just love that when they use that when research but they don’t tell us what research research understands about diabetes nutrition has changed total carbohydrates are what counts it was once assumed that honey candy and other sweets would raise blood sugar levels faster and higher than would fruits vegetables and starchy foods such as potatoes pasta and whole-grain bread but this isn’t true as long as the sweets are eaten with a meal and balanced with other foods in your meal wow I didn’t know that man I could I could have my cake and eat it too now great although different types of carbohydrates affect your blood Sugar’s differently it’s the total amount of carbohydrates that really matter so guys it doesn’t really matter if you do white sugar candy or fruit or grain it’s all about carbohydrates it doesn’t matter anymore that based on you research how fast that these foods spike your blood Sugar’s so ignore the glycemic index okay have your cake and eat it too sweets count as carbohydrates in your meal the trick is substituting small portions of sweets for other carbohydrates such as bread tortillas rice crackers cereal fruit juice milk yogurt and potatoes in your meals all right so now that you know that just realize I have a very dry sense of humor I’m being very sarcastic this is not the correct information I put a link down below if you’re new to my channel of how to do healthy keto and intermittent fasting you need to go on a low carbohydrate diet but you also have to be aware of the toxicity of glucose to various tissues of your body and thank you so much for watching if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos

In this video, I discuss how high blood sugar levels can destroy your organs and what to do about it.
Glucotoxicity is the toxicity of glucose (sugar).
There are two things that happen—a massive oxidation effect and glycation.
1. Oxidation – Can happen in the arteries, brain, nerves, etc. and the body starts healing it with proteins, calcium, and cholesterol as a plaque.
2. Glycation – Is the effect of heating up and combining glucose with a protein. It alters the proteins in the body and makes them unusable. It creates a lot of damage in the tissues which can happen anywhere in the body.
4 main organs that are affected by high sugar
1. Kidney— High sugar can eventually completely destroy the kidney
2. Eyes — Blindness, glaucoma, cataracts, blurriness
3. Vascular System – Oxidation can result in plaque, clots, stroke, arrhythmias
4. Nerves/Brain – Loss of feeling in the hands or feet, memory loss, decreased learning
Diabetes is high blood sugar or hyperglycemia. But, you don’t just wake up and have diabetes. First, you have pre-diabetes. So, what happens before pre-diabetes? There is something that actually occurs before pre-diabetes, which is high insulin or hyperinsulinemia.
The thing is, it’s possible to prevent all of this.
High insulin can actually predict diabetes. But, in order to predict diabetes, you need to know what happens before diabetes.
The problem is that there is so much misinformation and missing information surrounding this subject. If you’re operating off of missing information, you can’t solve this problem.
What they don’t tell you is that a high-carbohydrate diet is what’s behind hyperinsulinemia. If you eat a high-carbohydrate diet, insulin gets triggered, and it pushes the blood sugar down.
There is a tremendous amount of damage in the body well before you get diabetes.
• Frequent Urination
• Blurred Vision
• Belly Fat
• Inflammatory Conditions
What you really need to do is go on a low carbohydrate diet, and also be aware of the toxicity of glucose to various tissues of your body.
Take advantage of healthy keto (ketogenic diet), and get started with intermittent fasting—today. I provide a lot of information that can help you on this journey.
