CheckList

A high blood glucose level rarely appears out of the blue. In fact, often it might not appear until quite late in a process that has been developing over many years. A number of other features generally precede the diagnosis of type 2 or pre-diabetes. You may have been experiencing some of these symptoms for so long that you think of them as normal and something that you simply have to live with. However, this isn't necessarily the case. It may be a surprise to realise all the ways in which you are affected by what you eat and how this can be changed.

The following checklist will help you to determine if your high blood glucose levels are due to the metabolic problem that our program is designed to address.

If you have a number of "yes" answers to the following questions, the Eat to Beat Diabetes program is likely to help you.

Do you carry extra weight around the middle?
Can you fall asleep easily if you sit down after lunch?
Do you get muscle cramps?
Do you snore or have sleep apnoea?
Have you lost motivation?
Do you feel more like sitting rather than doing?
Do you ever feel like going back to sleep after breakfast?
Are your energy levels poor?
Do you have trouble staying focused on a task?
Have you become more irritable/ cranky/ angry or intolerant?
Do you often still feel hungry after finishing a meal?
Do you engage in "comfort eating"?
Do you ever feel that you haven't got an off-switch when it comes to eating?
Do you look for something sweet to finish off a meal?
Have you had an episode of gout?
Do you suffer from reflux, indigestion or bloating?
Are you often hungry or preoccupied with food?
Do you feel you are addicted to food, particularly sugar?
Do you feel as though your brain is "foggy" at times?
Do you sometimes feel hungry/shaky and need to eat to feel better?
Do you feel irritable or faint if a meal is delayed?
Do you experience mood swings?
Did menopause come with unexpected weight gain?
Do you find it difficult to lose weight?
Did you have gestational diabetes?
Do you have PCOS?
Do you have high blood pressure or take blood pressure medication?
Do you have a fatty liver?
Do you have high triglycerides and low HDL?

These features often occur together. Names given to this clustering of symptoms include metabolic syndrome, syndrome X or insulin resistance syndrome, and it's a condition that affects millions of people. Some develop it at a younger age, whereas others may not show signs until much later. It's estimated that approximately 70 million people in the U.S. have metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance.

If you suspect that you are one of them based on the number of boxes you ticked, deciding to join the Eat to Beat Diabetes program may be the best decision you’ve made all day!

Likewise, if you are experiencing high blood glucose levels but you don't fit the profile outlined above -- in particular, if you do not carry weight around the mid-section -- the Eat to Beat Diabetes plan may not be the best choice for you. There are different causes of high blood glucose levels; our program addresses the most common cause of insulin resistance.
