Diet and the food we eat plays an important part in helping reducing blood sugar levels.
Low Glycemic Index (GI) foods are more beneficial because they are less likely to elevate the body's blood sugar to high level.
Making careful choices in the foods we eat make a big difference in controlling blood sugar levels. Thus what we eat, when we eat it and how much we eat all play a significant role.
To maintain the blood sugar level it is recommended to eat instead of 3 large square meals a day, to eat 5 to 6 smaller meals spaced between 2 to 3 hours apart. This is time for the digestive system to process the complex carbohydates (sugars) in the body and also to keep the sugar level controlled.
