Favourite patient question: A 17 year old type 1 diabetic with a HbA1c (three month average measurement of blood sugar levels) of 13.2% (incredibly high and health damaging) is urged by me to stop drinking energy drinks. He asks me 'but where do we get energy from then?'. How have we become so disconnected from our essential natural selves, that we truly believe energy boosts come in cans filled with additives? Start your week by remembering that in the vast majority of cases, you were born with the essential metabolic tools to generate energy, if you give your body the right ingredients. Beginning to identify the right ingredients is simple - if you can buy it in the form it grew in, it's natural enough.
