Why Nutritionists Are Obsessed With Lowering Blood Sugar

Why is blood sugar such a big deal? Why do nutritionists, health coaches, doctors and health professionals seem to be so obsessed with it?

The Importance Of Blood Sugar

Blood sugar levels after fasting (not eating) for 8 hours or longer should be less than 100 mg/dL, while non-fasting blood sugar after eating should be less than 140 mg/dL.

Your blood sugar level may vary per day and what’s normal for some, may not be normal for others. Most people without diabetes are between 70 and 80 mg/dL before meals, while others are at 60 and others at 90 normally. While low blood sugar can vary as well, for most it never goes below 60, even when fasting.

If your blood sugar level is higher than normal, it is not healthy. If it is high, but not quite diabetic yet, it is called pre-diabetes.

High blood sugar, both pre-diabetic and diabetic, can increase your risk of:

  • Heart attacks
  • Stroke
  • Vision problems and blindness
  • Nerve damage
  • Poor circulation
  • Weakened immunity
  • Amputation
  • Erectile dysfunction

It is clear that keeping your blood sugar at a healthy level is crucial for your health and well-being. The good news is that you can do that naturally. An overall healthy diet and four fantastic, natural superfoods can help you with that.
