Blood sugar dysregulation and elevated insulin levels have negative impacts on numerous physiological systems in the body. But on a fundamental level, if adequate glucose cannot enter a cell, the mitochondria will not be able to produce optimal amounts of ATP to run the cells, organs and systems of the body, and we will not be optimally healthy. You can achieve and maintain optimal health only when you are on a diet that promotes hormone balance; that balance depends on a steady blood sugar level. Eating the proper combination of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates regularly and in moderate amounts helps to sustain that balance. Alongside nutrition, certain nutrients can assist in achieving stable blood sugar regulation.
