3 Steps to Controlling Your Blood Sugar When It Is Creeping Up

1. Good glycemic control is defined as glycohemoglobin (HbA1c) of less than 6.5 percent or fasting glucose less than 110 mg/dl.

2. Treat your insulin resistance not just your blood sugar. 80%-85% of type 2 diabetes patients are insulin resistant.

Diet is the major treatment for insulin resistance. Hint: count carbs–this is one place in which the low carbers are on to some thing.

The best diet is diet low in saturated fat (fats solid at room temperature, in animal foods) and moderate in total fats (up to 40% of calories).

But low in calories, with real lifestyle change, even for morbid obesity—it works.

3. Achieve your HbA1c of less than 6.5% ASAP, and no later than 6 months after diagnosis to prevent blindness, amputations and heart disease.

Learn how you can prevent diabetes’ complications.
