Brain Fog and Blood Sugar

Low, high or fluctuating blood sugar levels age the brain fast8346496d-b320-4d14-858e-e1db6adb7a13er as it damages neurons and creates a disconnect with neurotransmitters. It is also a major factor in Brain Fog and mental fatigue.

Some common symptoms of low blood sugar are:

  • Anxiety, restlessness, nervousness
  • Waking between 3 – 4 am
  • Craving sweets between meals
  • Impatience or irritability when skipping meals or not eating on time
  • Mental confusion
  • Brain fog or mental fatigue
  • Difficulty remembering, concentrating, focusing
  • Easily stressed or upset
  • More energy after meals
  • Shakiness
  • Blurred or impaired vision
  • Weakness and/or lack of coordination

Common symptoms of high blood sugar are:

  • Tired after meals
  • Frequent urination
  • Difficulty sleeping and particularly falling asleep
  • Overall sluggish feeling
  • Hungry all the time
  • Waist girth equal or larger than hip girth
  • Constant craving of sweets especially after meal time
  • Weight gain and difficulty losing weight

Problems with blood sugar are often caused by stress, poor diet and missing meals. Stress can cause a fluctuation in a number of hormones including cortisol (your stress hormone) and insulin levels which have a direct impact on the amount of energy the brain has in order to function well. Poor diets that include excess caffeine, carbohydrates, sugars, artificial flavoring and processed foods tend to wreak havoc on blood levels. Another culprit is skipping meals. The body needs consistent, healthy sources of energy to function properly and food, especially protein, is the body’s fuel source.

The good news is that for most people blood sugar can be remedied by reducing stress, eating a “whole foods” diet, and eating regular healthy meals. Eating a protein-rich breakfast within the first hour of waking is vitally important for good brain health and good energy levels. For many people, eating healthy snacks between meals or eating several smaller meals throughout the day keeps blood sugar balanced.

The liver organ both stores and produces sugar, glucose, depending upon your body’s need and the spleen organ metabolizes the blood sugar. When you are not eating, the body has to make its own sugar especially overnight or between meals. If you find yourself consistently waking between 3 – 4am after the Liver Meridian’s high time of 1 – 3am, then I highly recommend trying a teaspoon of honey before bed. My favorite is Manuka honey from New Zealand. It’s a great recipe for a “sweet” nights sleep and good brain health.
