• Regular exercise can help you lose weight and increase insulin sensitivity.
  • Increased insulin sensitivity means your cells are better able to use the available sugar in your bloodstream.
  • Exercise also helps your muscles use blood sugar for energy and muscle contraction.
  • Good forms of exercise include running, biking, dancing, hiking, swimming etc.

Monitor Your Carb Intake

  • Your body breaks carbs down into sugars (mostly glucose), and then insulin moves the sugars into cells.
  • When you eat too many carbs or have problems with insulin function, this process fails and blood glucose levels rise.

Drink Water and Stay Hydrated

  • Drinking enough water may help you keep your blood sugar levels within healthy limits.
  • In addition to preventing dehydration, it helps your kidneys flush out the excess blood sugar through urine.

Implement Portion Control 

  • Measure and weigh portions
  • Use smaller plates
  • Avoid all-you-can-eat restaurants
  • Read food labels and check the serving sizes
  • Keep a food journal
  • Eat Slowly

Get Enough Sleep

  • Getting enough sleep is necessary for good health.
  • Poor sleeping habits and a lack of rest also affect blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity. They can increase appetite and promote weight gain (4849).
  • Sleep deprivation decreases the release of growth hormones and increases cortisol levels. Both of these play an important role in blood sugar control (475051).
  •  It is best to get a sufficient amount of high-quality sleep every night.

Monitor Your Blood Sugar Levels 

  • Measuring and monitoring blood glucose levels can also help you control them.
  • Try measuring your levels every day, and keeping track of the numbers in a log.
