Your Last Diabetes Test Was WRONG (Here’s Why)

Doctors typically say that blood sugar levels should be tested using a FASTING blood sugar test.

I say that’s ridiculous.

I’ve always maintained that if you really want to know what’s going on with your blood sugar, you have to get a glucose test within two hours of eating a meal. 

But a new study has shown that getting a test just ONE hour after a meal could be even more beneficial.

Researchers from the NYU School of Medicine compared a 2-hour test to a 1-hour test to find out which one would be the best screening tool for assessing the risk of developing diabetes.

They examined nearly 5,000 men who underwent blood glucose screenings at 0, 1, and 2 hours. Then they followed them for an average of 33 years.

The results were clear: the 1-hour test was the clear winner for predicting future diabetes.

This was REGARDLESS of the 2-hour measurement.

The 1-hour test also more accurately predicted numerous complications associated with diabetes, including heart attack, heart disease, vision problems — and even death.

Since we know that diabetes can be prevented with lifestyle changes, the earlier you know you’re at risk, the sooner you’ll be scared into making the kinds of changes that can keep you from developing this devastating condition.

If your blood sugar levels are high, there are three things you need to do right away: cut out sugar, limit exposure to artificial light, and spend time in the sun each day.  

For extra help, numerous herbs have been shown to help maintain blood sugar levels. These include chromium, magnesium, and alpha lipoic acid.

To a brighter day,
