Can high levels of Arabinose in your blood cause muscle pain and other symptoms ? Been to see a nutritionist for these results.

Unscientific scam: Testing for arabinose and associating it with Candida and other illnesses is not part of medical practice. This type of "alternative" medicine is not science based and prays on the uninformed public. For the most part it is a scam.

Could diabetics build their muscles when blood sugar is high?

Depends: Hi. Kind of a tricky question. If you're type 1 and don't have insulin on board, the muscle is in a catabolic (break-down) state, and you wouldn't build muscle. If you're type 1 with insulin on board, but just had a bunch of sugar so your BG's high, then yes, you could build muscle. Type 2 is more variable, but it still comes down to whether muscle is in a catabolic state or not in hyperglycemia. ...Read more

When the sugars fall in between these ranges (100-125), this would be considered impaired fasting glucose or pre-diabetes (borderline diabetes). ...Read more
