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,
