Do You Have A Blood Sugar Questionnaire ?

One of my mentors once told me that you had to get your patients to drink enough water and to balance their blood sugar. He would say it was extremely difficult to get patients well if you didn't get them to do those two things. I thought he was crazy, that surely I had enough talent as a newly minted doctor that I had enough talent and skill to get them well all by myself.

Well, unfortunately, he was correct, and I was wrong! As it has turned out in my particular practice, those two things are the most important thing my patients can do for themselves.

So I thought I would turn the tables back on you all this week and ask you to answer some questions, 63 of them to be exact. Here is a Blood Sugar questionnaire I have used in the past. They are all great general questions and physiologically, physically, or neurologically relationships to your ability maintain and balance your blood sugar. So answer these questions and let me know how you did.

I will post the levels tomorrow in the comments section of this post.
