The 4 Foods That Will Steady Your Blood Sugar

Wondering what blood sugar has to do with you, if you don’t have diabetes? Keeping your blood sugar levels as steady as possiblenow may help you avoid getting diabetes later. “As you get older, your risk for type 2 diabetes goes up,” says Alissa Rumsey, Registered Dietitian and Spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “Since you can’t modify your age, it is important to take other steps to lower your risk, including maintaining a healthy weight, getting enough exercise, and balancing your diet to prevent spikes in blood sugar.” Controlling your blood sugar will also just make you feel better. “It’s best to control blood sugar—it keeps your energy stable,” says Leann Olansky, M.D., an endocrinologist at the Cleveland Clinic. “If your blood sugar doesn’t vary that much before and after a meal, that’s a healthier way to be.” Unrelated to diabetes, symptoms of occasional high blood sugar aren’t life-threatening, but rather unpleasant and only potentially dangerous if you suffer from other health problems. “When your blood sugar is too high, it can make you feel sluggish,” says Dr. Olansky. “When it’s higher still, it can lead to deh Continue reading >>

    I am a fairly newly diagnosed Type 2( Nov 2012).Since then I've been trying to get my BG under control.My problem is that my BG readings go up for no apparent reason,i.e. not eaten!I can't even get my fasting figures under 6.I certainly can't eat any type of bread,rice,pasta or potato without them going up to 10 or more no matter how little I eat.I've been testing before & after every meal for a month to try & work out why this is happening but can't seem to find the triggers, there just doesn't seem to be any pattern. I work nights & thought that was probably my problem but funny enough my BG figures seem to be better during the nights I work.Has anyone any ideas as to why this is happening & what I can do about it, I just don't know what to try next.

    Hey buddy, it could be that your more active at work than you are at home if you exercise, your blood sugar should start to come down slowly so maybe after a meal go for a walk or jog

    Hi. There could be many reasons for this. One thing is that as you work nights your body timings may be a bit confused and as the liver usually dumps glucose during the night this might be part of the problem although there are no doubt other reasons. Note that your body trickles glucose all the time and hence insulin is normally present to manage this i.e. background insulin. If the pancreas is not delivering then blood sugar will rise without any food. I'm guessing of course. Can I ask how old you are and if overweight or not?
