Every time you eat, your blood sugar levels go up. This is especially true for individuals who have type 2 diabetes or insulin resistance.
Having to learn how to control your blood sugar levels within a healthy range is by no means an easy task. It can take months for a newly diagnosed patient to learn what to eat and what to avoid.
And during this period of time, someone with type 2 diabetes is likely to experience high blood sugar levels, which is detrimental to their overall health.
How To Control Blood Sugar Levels
For the majority of healthy individuals, normal blood sugar levels are as follows: Between 4.0 to 6.0 mmol/L (72 to 108 mg/dL) when fasting. Up to 7.8 mmol/L (140 mg/dL) 2 hours after eating. (2)
For people with insulin resistance, their blood sugar levels remain high long after having finished their meal.
Fortunately, there are many foods you can eat that can help you control blood sugar levels naturally. As you’ll learn eventually, relying on expensive diabetes drugs in the long-run can have negative side effects on your body.
