Jenny Ruhl, author of Blood Sugar 101: What They Don’t Tell You About Diabetes, is our guest on today’s episode of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!
After being diagnosed as a diabetic, Jenny worked hard on her diet and physical fitness, only to find that her blood sugar levels were continuing to get worse. To learn more, she spent years scouring the Internet for reliable information on diabetes and blood sugar. Much of what she found differed dramatically from what doctors were telling patients about what caused diabetes and how it should be treated.
She was searching for the answers to questions like: What do scientists actually know about Type 2 diabetes? Why do doctors miss diabetes diagnoses until long after people already have diabetic complications? And what blood sugar levels are truly low enough to prevent further damage to the organs and beta cells?
Jenny uncovered the reality of where the current practice recommendations most doctors follow came from and why they are inadequate to protect people with diabetes from complications. Fortunately, she also found some very solid information about what blood sugar levels seem to be low enough to prevent complications. Listen in for all the exciting details!
