Episode #23 – Salty Sugars

In this inventive episode of the Just My Type podcast, co-hosts Sami (type 1) and Dobie (type 2) introduce the newest term for emotionally triggered high blood sugars, known as ‘Salty Sugars’. Have you ever been frustrated, angry, sad, anxious, excited, stressed, or emotional and stuck with high blood sugars? Well Sami and Dobie have, and it is NOT fun. Sami dives in a little about a recent event in her life that caused insulin resistance and blood sugars of 230 and higher. Dobie discusses times in his life where he knew not feeling like a 10 meant insulin resistance was working and in action. I mean hey ‘salty sugars’ is a catchy phrase right? Now you can be ‘pulling the D-card’ if you are having ‘salty sugars’. The perfect combination in Sami and Dobie’s eyes. Join the conversation and think about a time you were having stubborn high blood sugars caused by a wide range of emotions. ‘Salty sugars’ aren’t always the best sugars. C’est la vie, baby!
