How Lifestyle and Daily Routine Affect Blood Sugar

You can keep your blood sugar within target range and prevent diabetes complications, hypoglycemia and lose the desired weight by knowing what makes your blood sugar rise and fall.

Take a look at the day-to-day factors that can cause your blood sugar to rise and fall. Then find out how to cope with them.

You are watching blood sugar levels, so you probably know that food is a major culprit in altering these levels. Your blood sugar is at its highest an hour or two after you eat, and then it starts to fall. What you eat, how much you eat and when you eat all affect blood sugar.

Some issues to consider:

  • Consistency. Strive for consistency from day to day in the time and amount of food you eat. By controlling these factors, you can better control when your blood sugar rises and even how high it rises.
  • Type of food. Food is made up of carbohydrates, protein and fat. Although all three can increase blood sugar, carbohydrates have the biggest impact.
  • Sugar: Eliminate processed sugar from your diet and replace it with Steviva Brand Stevia Blend or Steviva Brand Stevia Powder

Coordinating your meals with physical activity can be a fine balance. Too little food in comparison may result in very low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Too much food may cause your blood sugar to climb too high (hyperglycemia). So the rule of thumb is "eat less more often" and this can help bring body fat down as well as balancing blood sugar.
