Tips on How to Control Diabetes
  • Exercise 
  • In order to control blood sugar levels, we
    should take up cardio exercises. They enhance the
    blood circulation and help your body in
    maintaining blood sugar levels. Exercises like
    running, swimming, hiking and brisk walking can
    make you disease free. Drinking water before and
    after the workout is extremely necessary to keep
    your body hydrated. At least, 10-12 glasses of
    water should be taken every day.

  • Diet 
  • A proper diet plays a vital role to control
    blood sugar levels without medicines. Diet of a
    diabetic should include healthy high fiber
    cereal, soups, vegetables like bitter gourd,
    cabbage, lettuce, spinach, cucumber, tomatoes,
    and capsicum. Also, lemon juice without
    straining, buttermilk added with a pinch of salt,
    tea without sugar may be taken by the diabetic
    patient. Citrus fruits, apples, pears should be
    taken in large quantities, for they reduce the
    bodys insulin requirements. Junk foods like soft
    drinks should be avoided completely, excess fat
    intake should be reduce. Consuming red meat can
    be extremely dangerous for your body. Avoidance
    of fats and sugar in your diet is the key to
    control diabetes naturally.

  • Remain Emotionally And Psychologically Strong 
  • For many diabetics, dealing with a chronic
    illness can really do some damage to overall
    emotional and mental health. It can be a very
    stressful and traumatic occurrence and it never
    goes away! Take time for yourself to relax and
    de-stress. Find a local diabetic support group
    and join it to meet others who are facing similar
    challenges and learn how they are dealing with
    it. Keep your doctor informed about your
    emotional condition.

  • Quit Smoking 
  • Diabetics are at risk of all kinds of health
    complications. Smoking increases a diabetics
    risk for every one of these diseases. Quitting
    smoking will help control diabetes. Get support
    from friends and family. Visit your doctor for
    help and advice and possibly a nicotine
    replacement patch.

  • Daily Blood Sugar Monitoring 
  • In order to control diabetes, you must check
    your glucose level each day. It is best to check
    at the same time each day. Blood sugar should be
    monitored by diabetics at least twice a day. Your
    physician will tell you how often to check. It is
    imperative that you monitor these levels and keep
    track of them in a log book.
