4 TIPS TO CONTROL YOUR BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS NATURALLY

  1. Quality Sleep: Diabetes and sleep often go hand in hand. Decreased sleep is a risk factor for increased blood sugar levels. Even partial sleep deprivation over one night increases insulin resistance, which can in turn increase blood sugar levels. As a result, a lack of sleep has been associated with diabetes, a blood sugar disorder.
  2. Stress Management: If you’re stressed, the hormones your body produces in response to prolonged stress may cause a rise in your blood sugar level. Additionally, it may be harder to closely follow your usual diabetes management routine if you’re under a lot of extra pressure.
  3. Soluble Fibres: Increasing the amount of fibre in your diet can help you manage your diabetes. Soluble Fibre (Dal, oats, apple) can slow the absorption of sugar and help improve blood sugar levels.
  4. Vegetable Servings: When it comes to vegetables, people with diabetes should eat at least 4-5 servings a day. Vegetables are healthy, chock full of vitamins and minerals, and some give you much-needed fibre. Also, add at least one serving of vegetables with every meal.
