Foods That Lower Blood Sugar - What Are They?
by Murali V
Onions have a high level of sulfur and, consumed with moderation, will burn down the
blood sugar.  Nutritionists generally recommend no more than two ounces per day,
but the dose can be increased as per the doctor's advice. Due to their highly oxidant
effects, onions are known to increase the level of HDL and fight against cancer.

Lemons are rich in Vitamin C and their acidity can lower the fats index of a meal.
They are known to reduce the concentration of glucose in the bloodstream and can
also fight cancer. One should keep in mind that lemonades shouldn't be sweetened
with sugar, but rather artificial or alternative natural ingredients should be used. A
plant called Stevia, for example, is considered a great and healthy alternative to
traditional sugar.

Barley is packed with fiber and is a healthier alternative to rice. It can help greatly in
lowering the blood sugar level and experts highly recommend it. It also makes you
feel full while ingesting fewer calories. The anti-cholesterol fiber it contains is the one
found in oats as well.

When preparing a diet plan that will help you keep diabetes under control, you should
also follow your doctor's advice. Depending on the actual concentrations of sugar in
your blood, you could be recommended additional foods.
