From what products to use to the biggest salon mistakes he sees . Embracing your natural curls has never been so popular, but it's important to know what you're dealing with so your curls can be at their best. After all, naturally curly hair demands its own specific styling products, cuts and aftercare.
In CHI, the beta-cells release insulin inappropriately all the time and insulin secretion is not regulated by the blood glucose level (as occurs normally). The action of insulin causes hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia.
High insulin levels prevent ketone bodies being made. This means that the brain is not only deprived of its most important fuel (glucose), but also ketone bodies which are used as alternative fuels.
How common is CHI?
The estimated incidence of CHI is one in every 30,000. It is much more common in communities where marriage between blood relatives occurs, possibly as frequently as one in every 2500 children.
