Now, let’s talk about BLOOD SUGAR. You’ll find an audio message below with all the things, but I wanted to cover some key items before we get there:

First, you need to understand glycemic variability…

Do you see what I see? Glycemic variability causes “normal” HbA1c levels. That’s what you should take away from this. And, glycemic variability is not good. Basically, this means that your glucose level is highly erratic, not stable, yet your HbA1c is fine.

Listen in to the whole convo here:

We also cover a bit about globulin as an awesome marker for digestive health! Hope you enjoy it.
