Gluco Pro Balance Review

by dilli jack (2019-03-29)

I suffer from what is commonly known as type 1Gluco Pro Balance Reviewdiabetes, or juvenile onset diabetes. Type 1 almost always is onset in juveniles (or people under 18). People that suffer from type 1 require insulin to survive. Without going into too much detail about the pancreas, I will just share that insulin is produced by the beta cells in the pancreas. For a still unknown reason, in people that have type 1 diabetes, the immune system mistakenly destroys these cells. Insulin, by the way, delivers glucose to the cells that need it. When the beta cells are destroyed, there is no insulin and therefore way too much glucose in the bloodstream.

Now, I cannot tell you how many times that I been seen eating sweets by someone that knows that I have diabetes who then freaks out and tells me that I should not have sugar. I want to clarify something for those folks: People with type 1 diabetes HAVE to have glucose or they will die. End of story. Not only does type 1 cause high blood glucose levels that require insulin to be lowered, it also causes low blood glucose levels that require glucose to be raised. Crazy, isn't it? I have to have insulin and I have to have glucose, end of story. That is the crazy part about type 1 diabetes: BALANCE. I must try to balance insulin and glucose with injections and my diet - while factoring in my activity level - to try and stay normal. If that doesn't blow your mind, I do not know what will. HIgh sugar foods should be avoided by those with type 2 diabetes, not those with type 1. Make sense?
