Save Your Vision Month

March is also ‘Save Your Vision Month’. that’s in addition to being Endometriosis, Kidney, and MS awareness month. Isn’t interesting that nutrition and blood sugar levels are part of the healthy recipe to prevent and manage these conditions?
🔍Do you get blurred vision often or more frequently than that you think it is ‘normal’?
 
🔍Have you noticed that the blurred vision happen after meals more often than other times during the day?
 
Well, let’s talk about this…
 
Did you know that high blood sugar levels impact your vision? And nope, you do NOT have diabetes to have your vision impaired.
 
Here is the deal, high blood sugar causes the lens of the eyes to swell, changing our ability to see well.
 
According to the CDC, ~80+mil American adults, more than 1 out of 3, have prediabetes. The issue is that ~90% of this group don’t know they have it. I used to be one of them. I am committed to my mission to help people prevent and manage prediabetes, diabetes, and all the health conditions driven by high blood sugar levels and insulin resistance.
 
What to do? Food for thought…
 
➡️ Tune in to your body: do you experience blurred vision? If you know someone, share this post.
➡️ When do you have it? Dive into to understand the potential driver. Note the incidents for a week or so.
➡️ If you notice that’s happening after meals and/snacks, likely they are out of balance and high in carbs causing a spike in your blood sugar.
➡️ Assure that your blood sugar is normal (75-85 mg/dL) before you eat. Work to improve the balance of your meals: carbs from veggies, healthy fats, and lean and clean protein. You can get all your protein from vegetables as well.
➡️ Confused or overwhelmed with all this, I am here to help. Blood sugar and insulin resistance is my area of expertise. The transformation you can achieve is amazingly fast when you have personalized knowledge, accountability, support, and tools for you to succeed. Yet, you still need to show up and do the work! Your coach here will be with you throughout the way!
➡️ If you haven’t got your blood work done in a while, PLEASE schedule an appointment. If you need a hand your doctor a comprehensive list of markers and labs to run, send me a private message.
