What are the best ways to reduce the amount of sugar in one's blood?

A common question that gets asked a fair amount is whether or not there are certain things that can be done to reduce the amount of sugar in one's blood. This question seems to come up a lot when people know they've eaten way too much food, or have gone on some kind of candy eating binge that they know isn't healthy. This is a good question for anyone to ask, but it takes on particular importance amongst those who are pre-diabetic, or those who have been diagnosed with full-blown diabetes.

There are two simple things that can be done to dramatically reduce the amount of sugar in your blood in a relatively short period of time. The first is to drink as much water as possible. There are variety of complicated scientific reasons for why this is recommended, but to the extent you can comfortably drink two or three glasses of water, that's a good step in the right direction.

The second thing you can do is to immediately start doing some exercise. This doesn't necessarily mean that you have to practically kill yourself doing extreme types of exercise, but depending on your current state of health and wellness, it might mean something as simple as taking a brisk walk, doing some push-ups, doing some jumping jacks, or otherwise engaging in some form of physical activity.

The reason why water consumption and exercise are so important is because both types of activity have been scientifically proven to help reduce the amount of sugar in a person's blood in a relatively short period of time.

Needless to say, one of the best and perhaps most important ways to avoid having to go through this process to begin with is to simply watch what you eat. Most medical professionals recommend not consuming more than 75 grams of carbohydrates in any given meal.

A little bit of common sense can go a long way towards preventing having too much sugar flowing through your body in the first place. Of course, people with diabetes oftentimes find themselves at a disadvantage when it comes to regulating the amount of sugar in their blood, but still, this is something that we can collectively take control of so that it doesn't become a bigger problem than it has to be.
