Foods That Can Be Used To Reduce Blood Sugar Level

High blood sugar occurs when the insulin in the body fails to metabolize the sugar from the food, which raises the amount of glucose in your blood. It is a metabolic disorder which can be managed effectively with the help of lifestyle modifications such as exercise and food. This article is going to focus on the foods that you can eat to lower your blood sugar levels.

Here are 9 foods that you can use to reduce blood sugar levels:

Cinnamon: cinnamon is a herb which is very effective in getting your blood sugar down to manageable levels. You can simply sprinkle cinnamon on your food before eating it.

Fenugreek (methi): fenugreek is a common spice which is used in almost all indian cuisines. It has a number of health benefits, one of which is reducing blood sugar levels. Soaking fenugreek in water and then drinking it the next day is a very effective remedy in combating sugar problems.

Garlic: not just for sending away the vampires, it is also very effective in blood sugar control. Extracts of garlic have been shown to increase insulin in the body which is required to metabolize the sugar in the body.

Heart healthy fats: heart healthy fat based foods such as nuts and seeds are good for increasing the good cholesterol levels (hdl) in the body. Avocadoes contain nutrients which lower the risks of various diseases such as diabetes. In a nutshell, these fats make the cells of the body less resistant to insulin.

Blueberries: blueberries contain anthocyanin (water soluble pigments) which is very good for your health. They also contain fiber in large amounts which make you feel fuller faster. This fruit has also been shown to improve insulin sensitivity in the body.

Vinegar: vinegar is an age old remedy to control blood sugar levels; it contains acetic acid which causes a reduction in certain harmful enzymes in the stomach. Vinegar is also known to prevent blood sugar spikes when consumed with food.

Complex carbohydrates: complex carbohydrates raise your blood sugar but not like its cousin, simple carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates cause an immediate spike in your blood sugar levels where as complex carbs provide a steady stream of energy. So drop that packet of refined flour and get that whole wheat variant.

Cherries: cherries, especially tart cherries and dark sweet cherries, are full of anthrocyanins. Insulin resistance prevents insulin from working properly to control blood sugar in normal ranges. Eating a diet high in anthrocyanins can mean improved use of insulin and lower blood sugars.

Nuts: people who eat nuts regularly have lower rates of heart disease than people who don't eat them.

I am blood pressure patient can I eat mango fruit for the hope for reduction in blood pressure. I am not alcoholic.

I am blood pressure patient can I eat mango fruit for the hope for reduction in blood pressure. I am not alcoholic.
Yes you can eat mango, as mango does help to reduce blood pressure. But you can't expect that mango will reduce it considerably and will bring close to normal. Healthy diet, regular exercise and medicine are the three things you need to manage your high blood pressure.

This is going to sound a little awkward, but my father, 43 years old, regularly visits an astrologer. He said that he would get a heart attack in January. A little background on him: Smoker, Drinker, Loves oily foods etc. For me, this was a wake up call, I have forcefully got him to quit smoking, got him to exercise and i am slowly controlling his diet. Is there anything else I can do? I knew a heart attack would come given his lifestyle, is there any way to prevent it, other than these? Weight: 98 kgs Age: 43 Height: 5 feet 8 inches Stress level: high through the roof.

You are taking good care of your father but he needs to be more supportive to you and more conscious of his health for the sake of his anxious family which will suffer equally if god forbid he gets a heart attack. He needs aggressive lifestyle modifications after being more aware about it- he is doing it for himself, not a favor to anyone. He is overweight. Reduce his weight by diet & exercise, take help from a qualified person, reduce weight @ 5 kgs/ month only. Get his basic tests done- ecg, echo test followed by a stress test, blood test for sugar and total lipids. Quit smoking and exposure to secondary smoking / pollution. Give up alcohol & oily food along with it. Astrologers do not predict a heart attack but lifestyle plus cardiac reports do predict. Get back here with reports for more guidance.

Chest pain jo heart ki vajah se hota hai wo chale ne pe ya kaam karne pe aata hai aur araam karne se chala jata hai. Gas ka dard chest mein ho sakta hai. Treadmill test (tmt) karne se dono mein fark kar sakte hain. Cardiologist ko dikhayein.

Yes he can eat if his constitution to digest is good. Black chane is a good source of veg protein but with age, food pipe gets distended due to certain heavy foods including beans and chane. Take care & you can give him soup everyday of black chane soaked overnight, cooked with ginger, garlic, heeng on low fire.
