    I’m thirteen years old almost fourteen i’ve had diabetes considering that i was eight years old. I still haven’t started my period. My mom says its proably because i’ve diabetes. When you have got kind 1 you might have to take insulin which is usually a hormone. So she says it can affect all of my other hormones and my growth. But im seriously wondering is this true?.

    • Dana Carpender says

      Joe — I’m guessing that’s really your dad’s name, but it’s the only name I have to go with — I am not a doctor, nor is anyone who works at CarbSmart, so we cannot give medical advice. I very much advise you see not just your family doctor, but an endocrinologist, the kind of doctor who specializes in hormones.

      That said, I can tell you a few things for sure:

      * Insulin is, indeed, a hormone, and a powerful one at that. Its main job is to “open the doors” on your cells to let sugar in, to get it out of your blood stream. That’s why without it you have too much sugar in your blood. This is very dangerous, and causes damage all over your body every time it happens.

      * The amount of insulin you have to take to get the sugar out of your blood will be based on how much carbohydrate you eat — sugars and starches. Sugars you’re probably clear on; starches are things like bread, potatoes, rice, cereal, muffins, bagels, and pasta. These break down to sugar when you digest them, so think of them as not-sweet sugar. The less you eat of these things, the less insulin you’ll need to take.

      * You’ll need to talk to your doctor about this! Sometimes doctors prescribe what’s called “long acting insulin” in doses that are based on the quantity of carbohydrate foods the average American eats (which is a TON.) If you take that much long acting insulin and DON’T eat those carbs, you’ll have an overdose, and go into insulin shock, which is VERY dangerous. Don’t change your diet without talking to your doctor!

      * All of that said, yes, insulin can influence your body’s release of other hormones. I know this because it has happened to me. I have uneven levels of some hormones, and my doctor tells me that it is specifically because my body makes too much insulin. Seems to me that if too much insulin can mess up your other hormones, having too little insulin could have an effect, too. Again, an endocrinologist could test you and see what’s going on with all your hormones — both the ones that control your period and the ones that control your growth.

      * The best book I know about diabetes is Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution, by Dr. Richard Bernstein. Dr. Bernstein has been a type 1 diabetic for many, many years, and learned for himself the effectiveness of carbohydrate restriction for helping to control blood sugar. It may be a little grown up for you, but maybe you and your parents could read it together. See if your local library has it!

      Please remember that diabetes will be the major influence on your health for the rest of your life, so the more you learn about it, the healthier you will be.

      I hope this helps!

    I love your magazine but am disappointed in the timing. Every issue has been released after the holiday has passed i.e. Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, 7/4. When will this timing be fixed? It seems unfair to those like me who paid for a full year and cannot count on a timely subscription.

    • says

      Hi Kate. We agree and we are working hard to fix that. As you can imagine, it is hard to produce a magazine especially during the first few months. We have writers for each issue writing for us, editors to edit, photographers to shoot photos, managers to manage, etc. Each issue takes 200-300 man hours to produce.

      Unfortunately a couple technical problems occurred during our learning process but most of those bugs are worked out.

      The good news is that we are actively planning our editorial calendar 2 years in advance and we have production for the next 5 issues in process to help us get issues published on time.

      Stick with us, it is a thrill to publish CarbSmart Magazine and our staff is working hard for you.

      Sincerely,
      Andrew DIMino
      Publisher

    I am new to low carb eating. I am giving it a try because I constantly crave and eat sugary foods. It definitely helps with my cravings but my breath smells terrible. What can I do?
