The importance of glycemic control...

I spent a beautiful day in Sydney, Austrailia meeting with researchers at the University of Australia, Dr. Jennie Brand-Miller and her staff. They are most pleasant and were great hostesses (for more about Dr. Brand-Miller go here). We discussed some of the primary research they were doing on our product, Bios Life Slim and what impact is will have on the world. In the course of our conversation, we discussed a variety of topics and the one that stood out the most to me was how glycemic control was directly related to mortality rates.rol was directly related to mortality rates.

This seminal paper in the New England Journal of Medicine demonstrates the relationships with glycemic control and hazard ratios regarding various disease diagnoses, including mortality rates. The paper can be found here (subscription required). As expected, poor glycemic control, or high glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) values had a linear relationship with increased hazard ratiods for diabetes diagnoses. The researchers also found linear relationships with hazard ratios for stroke, coronary heart disease and even with overall death. According to the authors, the tipping point, or HbA1c value in which patients should start to worry and start changing things was 6.0%. This was an eye-opener for me as I recently measured my HbA1c and it came back at 5.8%. I immediately upped my usage of Bios Life Slim, from one sachet to two before each meal!

Fortunately, there is a great solution to improving your glycemic control. As I mentioned previously, we have been looking at the effectiveness of Bios Life Slim on glycemic control. It turns out it is very effective. One packet of Bios Life Slim will reduce post-prandial glucose responses by up to 30%. It reduces the glycemic index of three different foods (white bread, white rice and instant mashed potatoes) up to 20%. This simple product can profoundly change lives in diagnosed diabetics or as a tool for prevention. The key is to use the product. Why wait? Improve your quality of life by using Bios Life Slim!
