to Worry About?
It is also a myth that everyone’s insulin and blood glucose levels soar into the clouds when they eat carbohydrates. This type of reaction means something is metabolically wrong.
If you have normal blood glucose control, your body’s sensitivity to insulin will quickly take care of the small rise in glucose you get after you eat. In fact, typical folks never see a rise in blood sugar levels much above 120 mg/dl (6.6 mmol/L) – no matter how much starch and sugar they eat.
The rise in both blood glucose and insulin is only problematic for those with an abnormal blood glucose or insulin response to the carbohydrates you eat. Reasons for these strange reactions will vary from individual to individual, but taking the necessary steps to correct the problem can often make you feel worse instead of better.
