Thyroid & Sugar Relationship

PDF: thyroid and sugar relationship

Hi Mona

I work with a lot of people who’ve been on thyroid medication for a long time, yet still feel exhausted, cold and constipated as a result of thyroid hormone imbalance.

Many have never been told that they also have a problem with their blood sugar and until they get their blood sugar and insulin levels balanced, their thyroid is unlikely to function properly.

Many of the symptoms of thyroid and insulin imbalance are similar, including belly fat, brain fog, and burnout.  After all, your thyroid controls the metabolic rate of every cell in your body, and if the dial is set to SLOW, you will be very efficient at using the available fuel (food) and there will be calories to spare, which get converted to fat.

When your blood sugar regulation mechanisms are off, and you are in one of the stages of insulin resistance, the food you eat has a difficult time making it inside your cells.  Therefore, instead of converting your food to energy to fuel you, it gets converted to fat, which most often accumulates around the middle.

If your thyroid AND blood sugar mechanisms are off, then even the fuel that makes it into the cells is burned so efficiently that there’s plenty left over for making fat.

Lovely, huh?

What this means is that even if you are eating a low-calorie diet, your faulty blood sugar regulation and thyroid hormones work so that you just can’t seem to let go of the extra weight no matter how hard you try.

And the very same mechanisms lead to a foggy brain and that all-too-familiar feeling of exhaustion, no matter how much you sleep.

This may seem like a hopeless situation, but it’s not!

You just need to have a systematic approach to restoring balance and finding your hypothyroidism treatment.

Getting blood sugar in balance is critical to your thyroid health.

According to Dr. Ron Rosedale, the only thing in common between long-lived people is their insulin level.

There are many interactions between the activity of your thyroid levels and insulin. Here are just a few:

  • Insulin resistance in liver, which occurs early in the process of decreasing insulin sensitivity in your cells, results in decreased conversion of the inactive T4 hormone to the active T3, resulting in hypothyroid symptoms. Poor T4 to T3 conversion is extremely common, and is one of the types of thyroid problems most missed by conventional medicine.
  • Low thyroid hormone leads to a decreased rate of glucose uptake by cells – in other words, it contributes to insulin resistance.
  • Low thyroid hormone also results in a more sluggish response of insulin to elevated blood sugar, leading to the damaging effects of elevated blood sugar on blood vessels, nerves and your retinas. It also contributes to higher levels of Advanced Glycation End Products, which have been associated to symptoms we usually associate with aging.
  • Thyroid hormone is required to facilitate the clearance of insulin from the blood, so when your thyroid function is low, you are exposed to the damaging effects of insulin on your endothelial lining, contributing to plaque formation, hypertension, heart attacks, and stroke

As long as you have blood sugar dysregulation, whatever you do to fix your thyroid will not work.  And, conversely, impaired thyroid function impacts effective regulation of your blood sugar.

This intimate relationship between your blood sugar and thyroid is why I decided to offer a very special bonus to anyone who registers for my blood sugar balancing program, B4 Be Gone, by tomorrow.

I wrote an e-book for my Thyroid Revive and Thrive Program called Thyroid Balancing Step by Step which is designed to help you take charge of your own thyroid health. In it I explain how to take action to restore thyroid balance based on your lab results,  including specific specific diet and lifestyle interventions to put into place to restore your energy, focus and ideal weight.

When you invest in B4 Be Gone by tomorrow, I will give you access to the Thyroid Balancing Step by Step e-book for free.

I’d like to share a real-life B4 Be Gone success story with you:

When Beatriz de Bruna joined my very first B4 Be Gone program, she did so because she’d been told she was prediabetic and there was really nothing she could do but come back in 6 months and recheck.

Because she had several family members who’d suffered with diabetes, she was scared, and rightly so.  She decided she would find a solution to prevent her from going down that path.

She joined B4 and focused on doing as was taught.

Beatriz “accidentally” released 22 pounds within the first month, and she was feeling more energetic and vibrant than she had in decades.

She continued with the program, and then went to see a new endocrinologist. By then, she had released 75 pounds, and her blood sugars were staying in the 80’s.

Imagine her surprise when the doctor told her she no longer had Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, for which she had been on medication for over 50 years. She also no longer had panhypopituitarism, a condition for which she had been taking cortisone. She was instructed to stop all medication, including that for high blood pressure, because her blood pressure had stabilized.

For Beatriz, the B4 Be Gone diet has become a lifestyle, and she remains healthy and has gone on to release 110 pounds!

Your body has magical healing capacity. All you need to do is correct the imbalances.

And my B4 Be Gone Program is the best system I know for jump-starting all of that. Enroll now to experience it for yourself.
