Diabetes: Keep That Sugar Low

12:51 AM

My family has a history of Diabetes. I know a few relatives who have had it or still suffer from it. That is why my mother has always reminded me to keep my blood sugar low as this can happen to me too. Technically, almost anything we eat converts into blood sugar. So too much of sugar can do some damage, regardless if your emaciated or 'well-fed'.

There are numerous fallacies in preventing the blood sugar from shooting up. For one, people believe that products such as the zero calorie, no sugar sodas can solve this. Most comsumers don't understand that the sugar in these drinks are replaced by artificial sweeteners which are twice as dangerous as the ordinary sugar.
