Blood Sugar Control

Finding out you have high blood sugar can feel like a death sentence. It means you will have to pay more attention to what, how and when you eat--but making these changes is well worth your time if it means avoiding medication.  Eat high fiber foods. Whole grains (brown rice, oatmeal and whole wheat), beans, fresh fruits and vegetables.  Certain foods contain blood sugar-controlling powers due to their high antioxidant content. Berries, nuts, omega-3 fatty acid found in fish or flaxseed, garlic and low-fat dairy are some daily diet essentials.  Watch the Carbs.  Decrease cholesterol, saturated and trans fats, which increase the risk of getting diabetes.  Exercise. Take a supplement. Look for a complete multivitamin to correct possible underlying vitamin or mineral deficiencies that impair blood glucose control.  Cinnamon lowers blood glucose levels.  Chromium might assist in managing various types of diabetes
