High blood sugar, also known as hyperglycemia, is associated with diabetes and prediabetes. Prediabetes is when your blood sugar is high, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes.
Your body usually manages your blood sugar levels by producing insulin, a hormone that allows your cells to use the circulating sugar in your blood. As such, insulin is the most important regulator of blood sugar levels.
Here are three things you can do to lower your blood sugar levels:
1. Eat More Fiber - Fiber slows carb digestion and sugar absorption. Foods like vegetables, legumes, whole grains and fruits are high in fiber.
2. Drink Water and Stay Hydrated - Drinking enough water keeps blood sugar levels within healthy ranges and helps your kidneys flush out any excess sugar through urine.
3. Eat Probiotic Rich Foods - Probiotics are friendly bacteria which improves blood sugar regulation. Fermented foods such as sour kraut, kimchi, kefir, tempeh and yogurt with live cultures all contain probiotics.
