What exactly is Glucose intolerance? Well to keep it simple, for those that are intolerant then they are in the first stages of pre-diabetes. To further explain, when you eat food, based on the ingredients and components of the food your blood
glucose (sugar) levels in your blood pressure will increase. This is in direct results of the sugars and/or carbohydrates found in those foods. In our human body, our pancreas then produces insulin, a hormone that is responsible for absorbing this
glucose into your blood which transforms into direct energy. In regular people, the glucose levels return back to normal levels a while after the food has been consumed, however for those individuals that are glucose intolerant there is a problem
in the supply or the production of insulin in the blood stream. Basically this means that the blood sugar levels remain high in the blood stream which in effects leads to diabetes.
