The incidence of diabetes and prediabetes in the US is skyrocketing. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) in 2017 reported that almost 50% of adult Americans now have diabetes or prediabetes.
The cost to our healthcare system and to individuals with these conditions is staggering. If you have been told you have prediabetes or diabetes, or you know you are at high risk for these conditions, take action now. There are proven alternative methods that can help reduce your blood sugar without harsh medication.
Some of the top methods to control blood sugar naturally include:
Exercise. Even a small to moderate amount of movement and/or exercise helps to maintain your weight and to increase insulin sensitivity.
Sleep: Lack of or poor sleep contributes to higher blood sugars. A 2015 University of Chicago study found that chronic sleep deprivation caused the body’s insulin to be less effective in lowering blood sugar.
Whole food diet. A healthy diet that contains generous servings of high fiber vegetables and leafy greens, and foods that have a low glycemic index (foods that don’t raise blood sugar) help to control blood sugars. Foods to avoid are refined carbohydrates, and foods to eat more of include fish, seafood, chicken breast, avocados, almonds and other nuts, and moderate amounts of all-natural peanut butter.
Control stress. We have ample evidence that during times of stress, hormones such as glucagon and cortisol are produced in the body in higher levels, and this raises blood sugar, so effective stress management strategies are essential.
