Are you throwing out words w/o knowing definitions? Metabolism is a set of chain reactions in living organisms to sustain life. And it's red blood cells that absorb glucose once it enters the blood stream.
Here's some basics on how to control and manage glucose levels. Not much can be added since you didn't tell us anything about your diabetes, if any. Nor do I recommend medication/s as this is up to a doctor following an evaluation.
● Eat a healthy nutrition of lean meats, poultry, fish, whole grains, fresh vegetables and limited amounts of fruits.
● Avoid manufactured canned and packaged foods. Restrict carbohydrate foods. Restrict foods made with white flour. Avoid starchy foods like potatoes and white rice. These food groups will jack up your glucose levels.
● Maintain a healthy normal body weight. If overweight by a ‘few’ pounds/kilos, lose the fat
● Maintain a healthy normal lipid panel
● Perform 30 minutes of physical exercise daily - minimum. Unsure where previous poster rcvd info on no exercise. I disagree as it contradicts what I have discussed with doctors, the last was dept head of Endocrinology at a major hospital on 09/13/11.
● Get a good night’s sleep
Let me add to the "no exercise". After further thought, no exercise over 250 mg/dl comes to mind if ketones are present in the urine because you will further increase ketones in your blood which then may lead to DKA [diabetic ketoacidosis]. DKA can lead to serious health consequences such as coma.
