Sugar Momma Club!

Does this sound like you?

You often feel stressed, tense, and hangry? Maybe you have low energy and need that sugar (or caffeine) fix to get you through the day. You can’t focus, and sometimes find yourself feeling dizzy for no reason. Maybe you are having trouble losing weight even though you do all the right things.

Based on the smart fertility Assessment, you likely have:

blood sugar imbalance

What is blood sugar dysregulation?

A simple way to understand blood sugar dysregulation is the flux of blood sugar in the body, as well as the flux of insulin production and release that’s needed to balance blood sugar levels in the body and brain. When there is too much flux, the rollercoaster ride of blood sugar can create a lot of instability in the body!

This matters for fertility because blood sugar dysregulation, or inconsistency of meals, and inconsistent availability of sugar (energy) for the brain are key reasons why the body goes into fight or flight mode. It’s very threatening for the body to not know when the next meal will be coming. Additionally, if the meals are full of sugar or simple carbs, they won’t sustain for long, versus the meals that are protein, fats, and complex carb rich.

How does this affect fertility?

When you’re in fight or flight, or facing inadequate nutritional levels for prolonged periods of time, the body will not ovulate. I mean, who needs to have a baby while they’re fleeing from a lion, right? Our bodies haven’t adapted to modern ways of living, so any fight-flight response is basically like running from a lion in the jungle, and although we’re not doing that these days, it’s pretty important that your body doesn’t think you’re in that state! Keep blood sugar regulated helps have healthy ovulation and menstruation. Here is an overview of all the various impacts of blood sugar dysregulation and how they relate to struggled fertility:

  1. Hormonal Imbalances: Blood sugar issues, such as insulin resistance or high blood sugar levels, can disrupt the body's hormonal balance. Insulin resistance, which is often seen in conditions like PCOS and type 2 diabetes, can lead to elevated insulin levels. Increased insulin levels, in turn, can lead to an overproduction of androgens (male hormones) in women, causing hormonal imbalances. These hormonal imbalances can interfere with normal ovulation and menstrual cycles, making it difficult to conceive.

  2. Impact on Ovulation: Insulin resistance and elevated insulin levels can impair the ovaries' ability to release eggs during ovulation. Ovulation is a critical step in the conception process, and disruptions in this process can lead to infertility.

  3. Metabolic Disturbances: Blood sugar issues are associated with metabolic disturbances, including high levels of glucose and insulin in the bloodstream. These metabolic imbalances can create an unfavorable environment for conception and pregnancy. It can also increase the risk of complications during pregnancy, affecting the chances of a successful pregnancy.

  4. Inflammation: Chronic inflammation, often linked to elevated blood sugar levels, can negatively impact reproductive health. Inflammation may affect the uterine environment, the quality of sperm, and the overall health of reproductive organs.

  5. Obesity: Blood sugar issues, especially in the context of insulin resistance, are often associated with obesity. Obesity itself can contribute to infertility in both men and women. Excess body fat can disrupt hormonal balance, impair egg quality, and affect sperm production, all of which can make conception more challenging.

Usually, signs and symptoms of blood sugar imbalances are a good reason to consider herbal and supplement support. But, it’s also equally important to get tested, and if needed, work with a functional fertility practitioner who can support your journey.
