Balancing your blood sugar is important, and especially if you have diabetes. When glucose levels remain imbalanced it increases the risk of issues like kidney or heart disease and nerve damage.
Eat a Good Breakfast
Starting the day with a healthy breakfast, including protein will help balance your blood sugar during the day and eating fewer carbohydrates prevents blood sugar spikes.
Have a Healthy Dinner
Many people find it harder to control blood sugar levels towards the end of the day, so choose a low-carbohydrate dinner or snack containing fats and proteins. These don’t cause blood sugar levels to increase like carbohydrate-rich foods.
Go for a Walk After Eating
Taking a fifteen-minute walk after eating a meal can help reduce blood sugar and can keep it lower for several hours.
Get Enough Sleep
Failing to get enough sleep makes it harder for the body to use insulin properly, so your glucose levels may be higher than they should be.
