Poor blood sugar control is an issue commonly associated with diabetes and hypoglycemia. A balanced diet, that limits high glycemic foods may prevent or even reverse the effects of these and many other health conditions.

Adult onset (Type II) diabetes happens when the body does not respond normally to high blood sugar levels or has become insulin resistant.

Hypoglycemia happens when the body responds to high blood sugar by overproducing insulin and then driving blood sugar levels lower than normal.


* Avoid high glycemic carbohydrates

* Balance every meal

* Eat every 4 hours

Symptoms of diabetes and hypoglycemia are thirst, extreme fatigue, mental fogginess, headache, shakiness, rapid heartbeat, mood swings, and depression.

Stabilizing blood sugar levels with proper diet and moderate daily exercise helps control hypoglycemia and possibly prevent or reverse adult onset diabetes.

Besides diabetes and hypoglycemia, there are other good reasons to control blood sugar . One very popular result of eating balanced meals is weight management. Simply eating the correct amount and ratio of foods at regular intervals allows you to burn body fat rather than store it.

Children and teens benefit from eating balanced meals as well. Poor nutrition and high blood sugar levels can often show up as hyperactive or aggressive behavior, inability to concentrate or ADD, fatigue or depression and childhood obesity and diabetes.
