Excellent video on how blood sugar works. This is very important for most people. Especially important for people on psychiatric meds and those who’ve ever been on psychiatric meds since our bodies get out of whack from having been on them.
Also important for anyone at risk of being diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder since underlying blood sugar issues can impact mood in numerous ways.
And yes, adrenal fatigue is related to this!
Since lots of people who’ve taken atypical antipsychotics have developed diabetes or are on the way to developing diabetes, it’s important for anyone with any metabolic issues that have been caused by psych drugs to know the information shared in the below video and the links I share. Also, it’s important to know that if you’ve taken psych drugs, you may have some of these problems without realizing it. These issues are societal wide but those of us who’ve taken psych meds have a substantially higher risk. Conventional medicine only diagnoses diabetes once the disease process has moved quite far along. So if you learn about the risk factors now you might be able to stop the process and get healthy and never develop diabetes!

Many of us who’ve been on psychiatric drugs (really any psych drug) have insulin resistance even if we’ve not developed diabetes yet. It’s worth learning about even if you’ve not gotten to the point where your doctor calls your issues diabetes.
Again, it seems that most people who’ve been on psychiatric drugs have insulin resistance. You may not know this and your doctor may not know enough to figure it out either. Learn how to take care of your body before it becomes full-blown diabetes and while you can still reverse the disease process.
I have had significant metabolic issues and many of them are much better since I changed my diet (and got off the offending medications). I continue to tweak things and learn more and more. Much of what I’ve learned about diet and nutrition is collected on this archive page: Nutrition and gut health
