Alleviating Diabetes the Natural WayDiabetes is an illness that is characterized by prolonged periods of elevated blood glucose. This condition affects approximately eight percent of the population.

Medication and insulin are the standard treatments for this condition, but there are also things that people can do at home to keep their blood sugar under control.

Below are three tips for managing your diabetes:

Exercise

Exercising is one of the most important things that you can do to keep your condition under control. Exercise helps lower your blood sugar and improve your body’s response to insulin. It also helps reduce your risk of heart disease, which is one of the many complications associated with diabetes. Thirty minutes per day is the minimum amount of exercise that you should strive to obtain.

If you are new to exercising, make sure that you consult with your physician before you begin any type of program. That will reduce your chances of getting injured. Additionally, you may also want to consider using a diabetes app, so that you can find activities that are appropriate for your condition and fitness level.

Eat a healthy diet

There is no specific diabetes diet. However, you want to make sure that you are eating plenty of fruits, vegetables and complex carbohydrates. Your intake of sugary foods needs to be restricted. You also need to drink healthy. Sugary beverages can cause your blood glucose level to spike.

You should eat five or six small meals per day instead of two or three large ones. Eating frequently will help make it easier for you to manage your blood sugar. It is also very important for you to check your blood sugar level before and after meals.

Take good care of your teeth and gums

Diabetes increases your risk of developing gum disease, which happens to be the number one cause of tooth loss in adults. That is why you need to make sure that you brush twice a day and floss once a day. You also need to see your dentist at least twice a year for a professional cleaning.

Diabetes can be a frustrating condition to deal with, but you have the power to reduce your risk of developing serious complications. Exercising, eating a healthy diet and taking good care of your teeth and gums are the keys to managing this condition. Additionally, you also need to follow any treatment plan followed by your physician.
