Healthy Blood Sugar Levels

Filed Under: Supplements at 10:37 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
Avoid sugar

Americans struggle to maintain stable blood sugar levels. Many people are not aware of the importance of lowered blood sugar levels and some people suffering from it, can hardly tell what the most common symptoms are.

Fatigue and anxiety may arise when blood sugar levels fall fast but, in most cases, hypoglycemia can be controlled with simple lifestyle changes.

Regulating your diet is the first self-care step. Select foods rich in fiber such as whole grains, vegetables and fruits. It’s also important to eat light and often, spreading out the meals during the day.

Carbohydrates should be reduced from your diet. Carbs are quickly absorbed and may trigger hypoglycemic reactions. Sugar and flour are the most common sources of refined carbohydrates and may be substitute for alternative products.

Supplements may be helpful as well. Chromium is an essential mineral which helps stabilize blood sugar swings. For the majority of people, a simple dose of 200 mcg a day should be enough to avoid low levels of glucose.

Supplements made specifically for unstable blood sugar levels may prevent conditions such as problems caused by the body’s overreaction after eating. Some people experience several symptoms that generally occur after eating resulting in a rapid drop in the blood sugar levels.

Some products have a combination of herbs to help this problem, working as a stabilizer and building up resistance to reactive hypoglycemia.

One last recommendation: avoid caffeinated and alcoholic beverages.

    I read your article Healthy Blood Sugar Levels and I came across something that caught my attention. It’s in reference to supplements made specifically for unstable blood sugar levels. We have several T2 diabetics in our family, and my aunt seems to fit in the category that you mention, experiencing rapid blood glucose drops after eating. She has had problems with unstable levels since she was a pre-diabetic. I hope you can extend your article or post a new one to include the recommended supplements. Thanks!

    Avoiding alcohol is also important in keeping a healthy diabetes diet. Alcohol is processed in the body much the same way as fat. It gives almost the same amount of calories as fat. If you must drink…then do it moderately or occasionally and when your blood sugar level is controlled.
