How To Lower Blood Sugar Quickly?
It is important to know what is driving the blood glucose high before you try to lower blood sugar.
Here are few reasons why you see high blood glucose.
- Heavy meal
- No enough physical activity
- Off on medication cycle
Identifying the cause is very important before you start treating it. Injecting insulin is the fastest way to bring the blood sugar down. I agree to this, if this is very high. Administrating insulin requires your doctor or diabetes educator help on details about the dosage and when to administer.
However if you start noticing that it is few points high often it is best to start some physical activity. There are few programs that are very well suited for diabetic patients including this one. Exercise will help your muscles absorbing more glucose and leave less to circulate in the blood. Frequent and regular exercise are very important. This include a stroll in the neighborhood. If you take blood glucose test immediately after your exercise you might notice that the blood sugar drops.
“if you have type 1 diabetes and your glucose is 250 mg/dl or higher, check for urine ketones. You should not exercise if ketones are present” – according to Christy L. Parkin, MSN, RN, CDE
However according to Dr.Loh and Duke Anderson blood sugar is not a permanent condition. It can be reverted just like a common cold. It will be take some determination and following the right diet & exercise.
For any major change in your physical exercise consulting your doctor is recommended.
Getting your recommended periodic A1C tests will help you and your doctor determine if your blood glucose control is on target. Here is a set of exercises designed to help you with lowering your A1C up to 6%. Identifying pattern in your tests that you take at home and at work is really important. This can help you and your diabetes care team tell whether you need to adjust your diet, medications, or both. The most important thing you can do to manage diabetes well is to control your blood glucose, and exercise is a key step toward reaching that goal.
Over a period of observation I noticed Newton’s 1st law, moment of inertia, applies not just he body in the universe. This is very well affects us mental state as well. You need some force or motivation to start the exercise. The magic is to take the one step. Once you start exercise most likely you will end up doing more than expected. You WILL blow your targets for sure.
