Can Lemon Control Blood Sugar Levels?

Tony Sangster , studied at University of Sydney (1978) Answered 7w ago Author has 947 answers and 167.8k answer views TID 51 years. Please note that the following is not to be taken as medical advice or opinion. I drink diluted lemon juice for hydration during our 104 degree F days in Adelaide. The juice is made by juicing lemons manually, so that all the fibre, and cells of the lemon are used. This watered down to about a 1 to 6. juice to water. This mix has no discernible effect on my blood sugar readings. In my diabetes education from long ago I recall a dietitian saying that having all the fibre of the citrus fruit in the juice helps to slow the absorption of the sugar from the citrus fruit thus reducing the effect on blood sugar compared to juice commercially prepared or prepared at home in a blender where the fibre is extracted. How lemons might affect other diabetics would depend on many factors as there are different types of diabetes, with different treatments and of course as individuals each person can have their own individual responses to lemons and indeed other foods. 62 Views View Upvoters Answer requested by Snorre Asbjrn Rubin , works at Region Hovedstaden Answere Continue reading >>

    First let me tell you a little about me.
    I'm in awesome shape, I'm not being conceited it's a fact. So when I was diagnosed as a type II I'm sure y'all can imagine my surprise. I asked my doctor how much weight I needed to lose and he said " from where, that only works on fat people you're stuck with this bud". So since my diagnosis I've tried all kinds of stuff to get off my meds. Which I haven't taken in months. I have lost weight about 10 lbs, because I've increased the amount of cardio i perform but I still lift heavy as hell.
    So back to lemons several months ago I saw my wife drinking lemons in her water. I had just gotten back from a run and I thought that sounded pretty good (plus they were starting to go bad). So I took one whole lemon, sliced it and squeezed it into my Nalgene bottle, put the lemon halves into the bottle and filled it up…boy was it good. I kept the lemons in there for a few fill ups, I typically drink about 1.5 - 1.75 gallons a day depending on my workout for the day. What I noticed is my bg stayed around 85- 100 all day that day. So for the next several days I drank whole lemons in my water and same result. Then I thought I would go out on a limb and stop taking my meds ( do not do this unless you are confident that this will work for you). Well I stopped and my bg stayed, once again, between 85-100. I don't know if this will work for everyone or if I was just misdiagnosed or if my fitness level plays a roll with the lemons but it works for me and I'm sticking to it. I still test everyday and I get my A1C checked every three months just to be on the safe side.

Unsweetened Lemon Reduces Sugar In Blood?

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community Unsweetened lemon reduces sugar in blood? Does anyone use lemon to deduce their sugar levels? Does it cause any long term damage if use occasionally? Dangerous or just a added tool like medication? I've not tried that @ickihun I did try a glass of dry red wine before bed as recommended by some posters on here, but it made no difference to my fbg levels whatsoever. I can't get them below 6 this week. Let us know how you get on with the lemon juice though. X Does anyone use lemon to deduce their sugar levels? Does it cause any long term damage if use occasionally? Dangerous or just a added tool like medication? I don't use lemon juice, except in cooking or to add a little flavour to sparkling water. I know some people swear by a glass of hot water, with lemon first thing in the morning, but I don't know of anyone using it specifically with blood sugars in mind. My only comment would be that if you are keen to give it a whirl, please ensure you don't take it last thing at night, after you have cleaned your teeth, as it is very acidic (all the sour stuff usually is) Continue reading >>

Can Lemon Water Lower Fasting Sugar Levels?

Can Lemon Water Lower Fasting Sugar Levels? I find my fasting sugar to be around 140 and pp to be around 150. I don't want to medicate myself. Will a regular intake of warm lemon water first thing in the morning help to lower fasting sugar? Should I also take it last thing at night to help my pre-diabetic condition? Thanks, Usha Sridhar Nancy's response: I encourage all of my nutrition clients (including diabetics) to drink lemon water once or twice a day, preferably first thing in the morning and before going to bed at night. The numerous health benefits of drinking lemon water may help with a pre-diabetic condition, especially the alkalizing effect, the liver and blood cleansing, and the gastrointestinal benefits. I can't say whether drinking lemon water will lower your fasting blood sugar levels. I am not aware of any clinical studies to that effect. However, drinking lemon water will aid in the overall health of your body but will not override any dietary or lifestyle factors that may be contributing to your pre-diabetic condition. In my experience, eating too much starchy carbohydrates (breads, pastas, cereals, snack foods, and other processed grains) and sugars are the main Continue reading >>
