Achieve Normal Blood Sugar Levels

Exercise

Regular exercise is a vital part of managing and reducing blood sugar levels. It works with the way your body is designed: to use energy from carbohydrates in your food to power your muscles directly when you move. Exercise also has multiple health benefits, both in terms of physical health and in overall well-being. Exercise releases endorphins, which are ‘feel-good’ hormones. This explains the feelings of satisfaction and even exhilaration after a good exercise session or workout. It’s also great if you can exercise outdoors, preferably in the countryside, so you get the benefits of fresh air, more oxygen, sunshine and being in nature.

As you start to exercise, your body uses both glucose and fat to supply your muscles with energy. This could be from food if you’ve eaten fairly recently or from stores in the body. Otherwise, the glucose is released from glycogen stored in the liver and fat is taken from fat stores in your body, so it helps you to lose weight.

Exercise increases insulin sensitivity and for people with type 2 diabetes, it reduces insulin resistance. For people with type 1 diabetes, increased insulin sensitivity means that if you are going to exercise after the meal, you need less insulin for a meal.

Do some of each type of exercise regularly each week:

  • Aerobic/ cardio-vascular – 20 to 40 minutes per day, 5 days a week
  • Anaerobic/ strength training – 10 – 20 minutes, 3 days a week
  • Stretching/ flexibility – 10 minutes a day, yoga class once a week

Meditation for stress reduction

A wonderful way of relaxing and reducing stress is through regular meditation. There are huge numbers of scientific studies and papers describing the benefits of meditation on physical, mental and emotional health.

By far the most effective way to meditate that I’ve come across is by using binaural beat technology. It is a way of meditating that enables you to go very deep into meditation at the press of a button! You can do this by listening to meditation CDs with binaural beat technology.

This is a fantastic way of meditating effectively, with virtually no effort, using ‘binaural beat’ technology. This method allows you to meditate as though you had been practising for 10 or 20 years, like a Buddhist monk, and you get the benefits of meditation much more quickly and reliably. The beauty of this method is that it is very effective and easy to use. You can even do it while you are sleeping!

Achieve normal blood sugar levels

The information in this article will help you achieving normal blood sugar levels. It will also help you get your blood sugar stable and your long-term average blood sugar levels into the normal range, i.e. HbA1c between 4% and 6% or at least into the healthy blood sugar levels range, up to an HbA1c of 6.5%, so you won’t get any long term complications. You will be able to reduce the amount of insulin you need and possibly even to come off insulin completely. If you pay directly for your medical bills, you will save money on buying insulin and you will avoid expensive unscheduled hospital visits and hospital stays.
