A study published in the January 23, 2016 issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, found that health-monitoring technology, or PHS, can reduce the risk of diabetes by up to 29%. You can read more about the study by clicking here.
That’s right, PHS devices work by measuring your heart’s electrical activity as it beats, as well as your blood glucose level. The technology itself is fairly new, but the study did find that it had promising results. The study is a randomized controlled trial, so the device was used in an experiment to determine if there was a difference between patients who had PHS and those who didn’t.
The study found that PHS could reduce the risk of developing diabetes by 25 percent. It also took into account other factors that would potentially impact your health, such as smoking, alcohol, and physical activity. The PHS device was a great way to test the efficacy of a healthy lifestyle choice, but the study also found that it was cheaper to purchase an ordinary blood glucose monitor than be able to use a high-tech device like PHS.
I always thought it was a big stretch to put a device like PHS on people, but the results of the study are pretty convincing. It’s also a good time to remind ourselves that what we eat has a huge impact on our blood glucose levels. You could also try to eat healthy if you’re not a big fan of carbs.
One thing the study found was that the more you restrict carbs, the more your blood glucose levels would spike. Of course, this is more of a problem for diabetics, who tend to get really bad blood sugars during periods of food restriction. If this is your pattern, you likely need to eat a lot of carbs to get your bad blood sugar under control. But if you eat a low-carb diet, your blood glucose and insulin levels will slowly creep up.
Another important study found that if you eat carbs and have a low blood glucose, insulin levels will rise too. This is because the glucose is being used up by the insulin causing blood sugar to spike, which in turn causes you to have a high insulin level. This is called the “incretin effect,” or the effect of eating carbs and a low-carb diet on blood sugar regulation.
Well if you eat carbs and a low-carb diet, your blood glucose and insulin levels will creep up. Another important study found that if you eat carbs and have a low blood glucose, insulin levels will rise too. This is because the glucose is being used up by the insulin causing blood sugar to spike, which in turn causes you to have a high insulin level. This is called the incretin effect, or the effect of eating carbs and a low-carb diet on blood sugar regulation.
Although some people think that you should always have a high blood-sugar level when you eat carbs, this is not true. The study you’re referring to was actually done on people who were eating a high-carbohydrate diet.
I actually think that carbs are important for blood sugar regulation. I’ve got to be honest though. I’ve spent so much time and energy on my blood sugar levels and the fact that I’m diabetic. They get to be such a problem that I just don’t feel like taking advantage of that information. Which is sad, because I want to be able to do it in a healthy way.
Of course, this is a good thing, as this is exactly why we do a lot of the stuff we do. It actually makes our lives easier and more enjoyable.
