Tips on How to Maintain Healthy Blood Sugar Levels

Diabetes is caused by excessive intake of sugars causing the pancreas to work overtime while producing insulin to process these sugars. Because of this, your body may develop a resistance to insulin causing diabetes. Here are a few tips to help you maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

• Increase your fiber intake. Fiber can help reduce blood sugar levels.

• Watch your carbohydrates intake. Your body breaks down carbs into sugars causing insulin spikes. A good tip is to reduce simple carb intake or replace it with complex carbs.

• Exercise regularly. Exercise converts blood sugar into energy.

How Often Should You Test Your Blood Sugar

The answer depends mostly on the status of your health and lifestyle. Those who are newly diagnosed with diabetes may have to test themselves more often to provide their physician with the data for a more accurate treatment plan.

Those taking insulin should test multiple times a day around three or more, in order to be aware of and maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Diabetics leading an active lifestyle should also test more often to maintain healthy blood sugar levels because exercise uses glucose in the blood to fuel the muscles during activity.
