    Hi Angelo,

     

    First - Have you discussed your high blood sugar with your MD?  If not, contact your MD.  Many different factors can influence your blood sugar and you need to have a fasting blood sugar taken by your MD, so you get the right treatment.

     

    There are ways you can alter your lifestyle/diet to help control blood sugar.

     

    1.  Limit simple sugars - soda, candy, baked goods, etc.  Low carb diet may be beneficial.

     

    2.  Increase your physical activity.  If you are sedentary start with a 30 minute walk 3 times a week.

     

    3.  Increase dietary fiber - switch from refined grains to whole grains (100% whole wheat bread, whole grain pasta, whole grain cereal, etc.)

     

    4.  Watch portion sizes - Instead of eating a couple large meals each day, spread your meals out into smaller meals with snacks.

     

    Again, discuss your blood sugar with your MD.

     

    All the best,
