Blood Glucose, the balancing act
We have two ways to balance blood glucose. From the high side, insulin, produces by the pancreas, lowers blood glucose. From the low side, the liver, through glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis raises blood sugar. As an engineer, it is obvious to me that if the pancreas is worn out, the obvious choice is to manage from the low side, via not eating carbohydrates. QED.
