how to lower high blood sugarIf you’re worried about high blood sugar or you would like a way to lower high blood sugar quickly, you’ve come to the right place. I’m going to give you 7 ways to reduce blood sugar and get your blood sugar in normal ranges.

But before I get to that, just know that you’re fully capable of lowering your blood sugar. With a little bit of diligence on your part and paying attention to what your body is telling you, you can get things under control.

I know it can be discouraging at times. But even though I don’t know you, I’m sure you’ve overcome many obstacles or challenges in your life. And type 2 diabetes is no different.

OK let’s go…

Lower High Blood Sugar Quickly – 7 Ways To Reduce Blood Sugar

  1. Check your blood sugar. I mean really. Check like crazy. I recommend before meals, and 2 hours after meals. Then I recommend checking before bedtime and upon waking hours in the morning. You have to know what is going on with your body. Also you can get an idea of what is working and when your blood sugar is the highest. This one piece of advice has helped so many people it’s not even funny. There are ways to check your blood sugar that make it so easy you’ll never fret about testing. I’ll tell you more on that in a minute. But testing is really the Key to getting your blood sugar levels perfect again.
  2. Eat foods that lower blood sugar. In some of my previous articles I wrote about the glucose lowering effects of many of the foods, herbs and spices that can be found in our refrigerator and kitchen cabinets. And for their blood sugar lowering abilities, I’d recommend you add some of the following to your diet: nuts (like walnuts, almonds, peanuts), avocado, cinnamon, stevia, green or black tea, vinegar, garlic and onions.
  3. Cut out the sugar. Cut out the candy, cakes and stuff like that for now. Avoid soda and juices. Stick with water until you get your blood sugar under control. Water is powerful and will help to dilute high blood sugar (Drink half of your body-weight in ounces). We’re not talking about cutting out sugar forever, although it wouldn’t hurt. But just until you get things under control. No one wants to hear the dreaded word “DIET.” And I don’t blame you, but when your blood sugar is high it calls for drastic measures. In fact much of the literature speaks of how toxic sugar is to your body. And even link sugar to diseases such as cancer. Sugar comes in many different forms. Some of the foods that you think are healthy really aren’t. And disguise sugar in the name of words like high fructose corn syrup. Watch for these. And try to stick with foods that aren’t processed. If you really need something to sweeten up teas or foods…use stevia. It even LOWERS blood sugar as I mentioned above.
  4. Start exercising. Be careful though because when your blood sugar is too high it can be dangerous to exercise. When you do exercise, try strength training and cardio exercises. Exercise reverses insulin resistance and helps your body use insulin more efficiently. Even if you just walk around the block, you will do yourself a world of good. You don’t even have to go to a gym. Try chair aerobics. You’d be surprised. Whatever it takes we have to get your blood sugar down and physical activity is excellent. Building muscle is one of the best ways to improve your blood sugar quickly because muscle requires more energy (glucose) during resistance training activities and even at rest hours later. And this can be done in short 15 minute spurts. Try calistenics for starters. Flex those muscles.
  5. Control carbs by monitoring the carbs you’re eating. Look at starchy carbs like rice, bread and pasta and see what they do to your blood sugar. Try more fruits and vegetables instead of these starchy carbs. And when you do choose these starchy carbs, choose whole foods instead of refined foods like white bread; opt for brown rice instead of white rice; and sweet potatoes or whole potatoes over mashed potatoes. Refined carbohydrates can really do a number on your blood sugar. And when you do choose fruit and other forms of carbohydrates, choose those with a lower glycemic index.
  6. Speak to your doctor about your medications. Sometimes doctors put people on drugs that don’t work anymore. If your pancreas isn’t secreting enough insulin, there may be other options available that you may need depending on how diabetes has progressed. It may be time to switch things up with the medications you’re taking.
  7. Get some fiber. Fiber can be found in fruit and veggies and has many benefits. I wrote an article on how fiber and eating foods high in fiber have been tied to less diabetes. Some other benefits of fiber include: lower blood cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, aid in weight loss, make you feel satisfied for longer, and prevent constipation and diarrhea.

If you really would like control your blood sugar like never before you really need a customized solution… Because the truth is no two people are alike and what works for one person might not work for another. That’s why you need a customized plan for controlling diabetes that is right for your lifestyle. Click here to learn more about how to naturally control diabetes in a way that fits you…

Go to the emergency room, or get a new doctor. Look into a cardiologist. Can’t play with high blood pressure. Last piece of advice, you can walk-in to your current doctor’s office and tell them you have an emergency and need to see the doctor today because you believe the medications aren’t working. Let them know how you’re feeling. After a doctor’s opinion here’s an article on diet: http://diabetesdietcures.net/high-blood-pressure-and-diabetes-diet-the-dash-diet-plan/

When do you test? And what are you eating? Are you testing often enough? My guess is that these readings are after meals. It sounds like you might be a candidate for insulin therapy as your current medications may not be getting it done.
