The best way to start controlling your fasting blood sugar level is to monitor your daily sugar intake. Your fasting blood sugar should be no higher than 85. Limit yourself to 10 teaspoons of total sugar a day including the pasta and breads that are converted to sugar. Packaged foods are labeled according to grams of sugar and carbohydrates, not teaspoons. Use this formula to find out exactly how much sugar is in your food:
(total grams of carbs-total grams of fiber) divided by 5= total teaspoons of sugar.
This will give you the total teaspoons of sugar in a serving of that food.
If you seek additional support for sugar control, try adding the herb cinnamon to your coffee and recipes . Pure Encapsulations’ Glucose Control Formula is a combination of many herbs that can also assist in blood sugar control. Order it online at HeleneKaplanHealth.com
