Why is it so important to keep our blood sugar levels stable? Well, the amount of glucose in our bloodstream affects our body, brain, and mood. Too high or too low levels can cause a lot of undesirable effects and chronic conditions in the long run.

In other words, our blood sugar levels affect our entire body and health. Unfortunately, not many people pay attention to them, unless they have diabetes.

Some symptoms of unstable blood glucose levels are the following:

  • Weakness
  • Headaches
  • Irritability
  • Dizziness
  • Sweating
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Hunger
  • A quick heartbeat

People with hyperglycemia (high blood glucose) and hypoglycemia (low blood glucose) are well-familiar with these symptoms. But, this doesn’t mean that others shouldn’t pay attention to their blood glucose levels.

Keeping the blood glucose levels balanced is important for everyone as it helps prevent many chronic conditions like kidney failure and heart disease, and keep a healthy weight and good mood.

So, here are ten tips to control blood glucose levels naturally, without medication. But, those who are already on medication, should not stop taking them!

10 Tips to Control Blood Glucose Naturally

1. Eat a Balanced Diet

Be sure to follow a healthy, balanced diet and avoid processed snacks, sugary treats, and fast food. In this way, we’ll prevent our blood glucose levels from rising and falling like a roller coaster.

2. Consume More of These Foods

We should add foods with a low glycemic index to our diets such as carrots, broccoli, apples, greens, whole grains, oranges, eggs, milk, turkey, nuts, chicken, and yogurt. Here are a few more suggestions from NIH

3. Drink Plenty of Water

Drink at least two liters of water daily to prevent blood sugar from dropping too low.

4. Exercise

Regular physical activity is one of the best things we can do for our blood sugar levels because it helps increase insulin sensitivity. In other words, it makes our insulin more able to use blood sugar in our bloodstream.

5. Relieve Stress

Mental stress is one of the biggest reasons for our blood sugar spikes. Therefore, we should avoid stressful events as much as possible, and find a way to relax every day.

We can do yoga, breathing techniques, meditation, listen to relaxing music, or even watch our favorite show – anything that helps us to calm down.

6. Take Control of Mealtimes

One of the best ways to make sure our body gets the right amount of glucose is to watch our portions and eat fixed meals every day.

7. Keep a Healthy Weight

Maintaining a healthy weight is a good way to keep our blood glucose levels steady.

8. Control The Carb Intake

Cutting back on carbs can have incredible benefits for our health, including better metabolism and controlled blood glucose levels.

9. Eat Fiber-Rich Foods

Consume foods high in soluble fiber to help maintain a healthy weight and cut the risk of chronic diseases. Some of these foods include beans, peas, oats, carrots, citrus fruits, apples, and barley.

10. Get Enough Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep is necessary for our energy, but also for our mood and blood—sugar-regulating hormones.

Final Words

We hope these tips will help people prevent their blood sugar levels from spiking.
