Do you often find yourself getting “hangry” when you wait too long to eat? While it can be slightly funny, and easily remedied (hello sugary snack!) the cause of this sudden rush of rage may be warning you of an underlying issue.
Our first recommendation is to order several tests to understand what’s really going on. TEST – DON’T GUESS! Contact our team to learn how easy it is. What supplements you take for sugar handling issues will vary depending on factors such as insulin resistance, diabetes, hypoglycemia, or reactive hypoglycemia.

Other considerations for that “hangry” feeling include adrenal fatigue, how well your liver is detoxifying, elevated total cholesterol, a high glycemic diet, or other genetic predispositions.
As you decide how to treat the symptoms, you will save time and money by running the appropriate test first. Really understand then own what’s going on with your particular glucose handling finger print.
