Your Blood Sugar is Connected to Your Hormones


Are you aware of the connection between proper blood sugar balance and your thyroid health?

Our endocrine system (the system that controls hormones) is directly related to blood sugar, energy, and weight management.

πŸ‚Blood sugar is controlled by the pancreas. The pancreas and thyroid are both part of the endocrine system.

πŸ‚The endocrine system is made of many feedback loops and their various hormones all β€œtalk” to one another and make changes to the body to try and keep things in balance.

πŸ‚These systems work in both directions, so they influence each other.

πŸ‚When we ingest sugar, insulin is released by the pancreas to help the cells of the body absorb sugar so that it can be used.

πŸ‚The adrenal glands release cortisol to help sugar get absorbed by the cells of the body.

πŸ‚A hypothyroid state leads to a slow absorption of glucose, a slower breakdown of insulin, a decrease of the speed at which glucose is absorbed in the gut, a lower glucose to insulin response and, finally, less glucose in the cells for the body to use.

πŸ‚All of this means less energy to power your cells and brain and more fatigue.

πŸ‚To make matters worse, all of this affects the adrenal glands and the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis). In order to try and fix the problem of not having enough sugar, the adrenal glands release the stress hormone cortisol to increase glucose in the cells.

πŸ’›Many people have some degree of the sugar imbalance described above. If you are thin, it may be hypoglycemia.

πŸ’›If you are overweight it may be insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome.

πŸ’›If you feel better after you eat, this can indicate hypoglycemic.

πŸ’›If you are tired after you eat, you may have insulin resistance.
