Foods To Eat To Lower Blood Sugar

Foods that lower blood sugar are known as low-glycemic and are measured by an index that determines how quickly blood sugar rises after eating a particular food. The good news is that there are numerous foods you can easily work into your diet to help keep your blood sugar at a healthy level. Avocados Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat and soluble fiber, which can reverse insulin resistance. They are slow-burning, and because of their low sugar content they are good food choices for diabetics—and they're also known to stimulate an under-active thyroid. Flaxseed Flaxseeds are rich in phytochemicals, omega-3 fatty acids, copper, magnesium and phosphorus. They are very low in carbohydrates, contain healthy fat and are high in fiber, which promotes lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels and aids in weight loss. Lemons Garlic Cinnamon Cinnamon is high in fiber and magnesium and contains a natural compound known as a polyphenol. This compound mimics the effects of insulin, lowering blood sugar significantly. Cinnamon has also been known to lower the production of the stress hormone cortisol, which can cause belly fat to form around a person's midsection. Vinegar Adding 2 tables Continue reading >>

    How long does it take METFORMIN to help me lose weight?

    I have been diagnosed with insulin resistance Nov 2011. Taking METFORMIN, HCL ER 2000mg (since 11/4/11 worked my way up to full dose). Been on full dose for 2.5 weeks now. No weight loss. I am keeping total daily carbs under 45grams per day. Total calories < 1400. PROTEIN = 60-80GRAMS PER DAY. Diet controlled w/dietician every 6 weeks. I work out 5x per week, 45 mins each time = 50/50 cardio/strength training. Drink 8 glasses of water per day. I am very frustrated. How long does full dose of MET 2000mg take to lose any weight? My endo says he feels I can lose 10 lbs by the follow up appt 2/3/12. I haven't lose one ounce yet. PLEASE HELP. DEE

    ps I just read somewhere that I should be taking my metformin with full glass of water. I have not been doing that. Just enough water to get the pills down. Also once or twice a week I will have a glass of sugar free lemonade w/ 1.5 oz of flavored vodka (zero sugar, BUT 6-8 total carbs). Could this interfere w/metformins' effect to help the insulin resistance??????

    Hi, as you probably know, metformin aids weight loss by reducing your natural instinct of hunger, so you eat less. So it is really down to you to loose the weight by eating healthily which it sounds that you are. To be honest i would have expected you to have lost some weight already... there are foods which can hinder you weight loss, such as foods that increase your blood sugar levels, so you need to be aware of these. I am going to add a link to a website that lists the things you should/should not be doing whilst taking the metformin, including dietary suggestions. I hope you see some results soon.
