You do not select any option

Blood sugar issues don’t seem to be a problem and your metabolism appears to be working fine.

I would suspect your metabolism is not burning fats 23/7 and this could be a reason you struggle with weight gain, fatigue, cravings, irritability, inability to concentrate, etc. I would recommend adjusting your diet so you can get your metabolism to work in your favor. Check to see if stress is contributing to this problem.

Your Metabolism is definitely out of balance and needs to be corrected. I would also suspect your adrenal glands are overworking as they try and help support your blood sugar. Adjusting your diet and supporting your adrenal glands will definitely help you.

FYI…When your blood sugar drops too low, it triggers cortisol to help regulate your blood sugar.  Cortisol also moves your metabolism to burn more carbs and proteins.
