The 5 Ways To Reduce Blood Sugar In One Week, Naturally!

1. Keep an Eye on Your Carb Intake

Paying attention to carbohydrates is important for people with type 2 diabetes. “Carbs are what cause your blood sugars to potentially fluctuate,” Crandall Snyder says.

2. Avoid Eating Large Meals

One way to keep carbs under control is by eating in moderation. “I always tell my patients to spread their food out over the day,” Weisenberger says. “Don’t eat small meals to save up for a big dinner.” Feeding your body throughout the day helps regulate your blood sugar levels and prevents highs and lows, Crandall Snyder says.

3. Fill Up on Fiber

Fiber is another nutrient you’ll want to keep an eye on for blood sugar management, but in this case, the more the better! It can help stabilize your blood sugars, Crandall Snyder says.

4. Get More Quality Shuteye

Poor or limited sleep affects body chemistry, and getting more slumber helps with blood sugar control, Weisenberger says.

5. Lose a Little Weight

Carrying around extra weight is one of the main causes of insulin resistance, keeping the blood sugar-lowering hormone from working properly, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.
