Name for this process is capillary recruitment. and capillary recruitment, is rather helpful, since insulins primary job, is to put away the groceries, after a meal. Big wide blood vessels, make popping the sugars and things that have just arrived, into hungry cells, a whole lot easier. But, in someone who is insulin resistant this vasodilation process, doesnt happen. And, there is a delay in putting the groceries away. Sugar levels rise, resulting in glucose intolerance. And since high sugar levels are especially bothersome.
this causes trouble with a capital t. but, big wide blood vessels can be problematic too. Theres only so much blood, whizzing around and if you divert the blood into every nook and cranny, the pressure in the system drops. The same thing happens in bathrooms. If youre running the hot water out of one tap, all that comes out of the other tap, is a dribble. Because the pressure dropped. now, the easy fix in the bathroom for this situation is to turn off, the other tap. But, in the body, a sudden drop of pressure.
Could see you toppling over, because there is a problem with oxygen delivery. so Mother Nature makes a plan. Join us for this episode of BETTER BODY CHEMISTRY TV, as we explore how THIS PLAN contributes to insulin resistance. Better Body Chemistry TV is brought to you by Sandy a scientist turned gremlin buster, HELPING YOU, battle sugar gremlins, heffalumps other health horribles, through BETTER BODY CHEMISTRY. Remember, small things can make a big difference to your health. So what is the story ? Well, it turns out,.
Mother nature keeps tabs on the quantity and quality of the blood, via tiny little bodies located in the main blood vessels running into your head. Bodies is kind of a grand term for them, on the outside they look like little bumps. But these bumps are packed full of nerve tissue. And they keep tabs on oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, as well as the pH of the blood and temperature. Any anomaly in the numbers, sparks frantic activity. They fire off signals via the carotid sinus nerve and THINGS HAPPEN. The things that happen.
Include prompting you to breath better and squeezing the blood vessels throughout the body, so that they are a whole lot smaller. Constricting th blood vessels EVERYWHERE, bumps up blood pressure returning things BACK TO NORMAL. Well sort of. In medical speak, this is referred to as vasoconstriction and sympathoexcitation. Exactly how these little bodies do this tremendously important job, is still a little fuzzy. What we do know, thanks to a team of Portuguese researchers, is insulin triggers the carotid bodies. And.
When insulin climbs, carotid bodies make things happenalways ! and the happenings lasts for a few hours. This is great when insulin is putting away the groceries, in response to dinner, but. it becomes problematic when insulin is high ALL THE TIME. And its high all the time, when youre insulin resistant. Remember, insulin resistance is selective, not all cells, dont respond to insulin appropriately, in insulin resistance, it is the power hungry cells, the muscle, liver and fat cells dont respond. Carotid.
Bodies do respond.theyre not insulin resistant ! hyperinsulinemia keeps carotid bodies pinging. Morning, noon and night. The body is permanently sympathoexcited. Translated. blood vessels are smaller, less blood is flowing and blood pressure is elevated. OUCH ! Which decreases insulin delivery. leading to glucose intolerance ! And more insulin. The Portuguese team demonstrated, an over active carotid body is part of the problem in insulin resistance, by observing what happened when carotid bodies.
Couldnt do their job. when the carotid body activity was terminated by cutting the carotid sinus nerve the problem of insulin resistance, disappeared. In this research, the team performed surgery on two groups of rats.one group got the snip, the other group were just opened up, but the carotid sinus nerve was not actually cut these were the controls. Five days later the rats were feasting, quite literally, they were put on a diet, designed to put on weight. Rats with carotid bodies, GOT FAT and developed.
Diabetes Complications Is There A Link Between Diabetes And Hypertension
Hi! i’m robosuzie and today i’ll talk to you about is there a link between diabetes And Hypertension. Also don’t forget to check out the link below, to find out, how this guy reversed his diabetes! Turns out, the diabetes industry is selling us fake research! But back to our topic. You are maintaining a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise. You are checking your blood sugar levels and they are within target range. Your A1C is less than 7%.
You are scheduled to see your healthcare provider for your routine visit. you’re feeling good. Everything looks good, it’s just that your blood pressure has risen over the last few months, you’re healthcare provider reports, We are going to have to start you on blood pressure medications. You’re bewildered. How can this be? Everything seemed to be going well. Why have you just been diagnosed with hypertension?.
Is there a link between diabetes and hypertension? The short answer to this question for people living with type 2 diabetes is YES. The link is explained by what ians call metabolic syndrome. I know that this word may mean very little to you. But this information is very important for anyone living with type 2 diabetes. I am going to explain what this means in as simple terms as possible.
It is my intention that the knowledge is presented in an easy to understand format. that way you are better able to take action. It is only by taking action that you can live powerfully with diabetes. So let’s dive right back into what is metabolic syndrome and how it links diabetes and hypertension. What is metabolic syndrome? Metabolic syndrome is a group of characteristics. It is not really medical illness. The important.
Thing is that these characteristics put you at an increased risk for developing certain diseases. These diseases include type 2 diabetes, hypertension and heart disease. Metabolic syndrome is also called metabolic X syndrome, syndrome X and also insulin resistance syndrome. Most al experts define metabolic syndrome as having three or more of any of the following: Obesity in the abdomen. Greater than 32 inches in women and 38 inches in men.
High fasting blood sugar levels more than 100125 mg/dl A high blood pressure of more than 130/85 mm hg or if you are taking blood pressure medication. A high triglyceride level of more than 150 mg/dl or a low HDL level of less than 40 mg/dl. The prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome. More than 2/3rd of the adult American population is either overweight or obese. The number of people with metabolic syndrome has risen just as the obesity epidemic in this country.
Currently that rate is at 34% of the adult population. The following factors put you at risk for developing metabolic syndrome: Being overweight. In other words a BMI of more than 25. Smoking. Eating a diet that is high in carbohydrates. Smoking. Lack of exercise. Menopause. Family history of diabetes or metabolic syndrome.
Increasing age. what health risks are associated with metabolic Syndrome? People with metabolic syndrome are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. They are also at risk for developing cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease consists of several diseases. I like to compare the cardiovascular system to the plumbing system in your house. Your symptoms depend on what part of the arteries gets clogged up. Cholesterol gets deposited.
