What is insulin?
Insulin is an important hormone made in your pancreas, which allows your body to use sugar
(glucose) from the carbohydrates in the food you eat. One of the main roles of insulin is to keep your blood sugar level from getting too high (hyperglycemia) or too low (hypoglycemia). Therefore, importantly, insulin helps balance and normalize blood sugar levels.
What is iodine?
I odine is an essential trace element, which is vital for normal growth and development of the body. It also controls the functioning of thyroid glands, which in part regulate metabolic rate in the body. Iodine helps in the optimum use of calories, thereby preventing the storage as excess fat, i.e. weight gain. Other benefits include removal of toxins and heavy metals from the body, boosts the immune system, and assists in the body’s use of minerals. And importantly, iodine is needed for proper glucose metabolism and for preventing the cardiovascular complications of diabetes.
When your blood glucose (blood sugar) is too high, it is called diabetes. Why is this a problem?
Because diabetes is a major contributor to heart disease, kidney disease, stroke, gum disease
and even loss of teeth, vascular/blood vessel disease and vision loss, with one of the most common
complications for diabetes being foot infections. In this disease, your pancreas makes little or no insulin or your body’s cells don’t use it well. As a result, blood sugar can’t move from your
bloodstream into the cells that need it for energy.
Diabetes is serious but it can be reversed! Taking good care of yourself and your diabetes can
help you feel much better. This can help you avoid health problems caused by diabetes. When your blood glucose is close to normal you are likely to have more energy, be less tired and thirsty and urinate less often, heal better and have fewer skin or bladder infections, and have fewer problems with your eyesight, feet and gums.
