Unlock Better Health: Control Blood Sugar

Stabilize your blood sugar levels

If you want better health, pay attention to your blood sugar levels

Swings in blood glucose (sugar) levels can affect you severely. Rapidly rising levels can cause nausea, vomiting, or shortness of breath. When they drastically drop, it may cause confusion, dizziness, blurred vision, seizures, unconsciousness, or even death. If people living with diabetes leave their blood glucose levels unchecked, life-threatening health complications can develop. Diabetes could lead to heart and blood vessel disease, the loss of limbs due to amputation, blindness, and chronic kidney disease (CKD) which can result in kidney failure. 


Your blood glucose levels play a critical role in your overall health. If you don’t have diabetes, it’s still vital to keep tabs on your blood glucose levels. There are many things you can do to keep your blood glucose levels more stable and your body will thank you if you are able to do so.


The rise and fall of blood glucose levels 

Your body uses glucose (sugar) for fuel. When you eat carbohydrates, your body will break it down into glucose and release it into your bloodstream. This will cause your blood glucose level to rise. 

Your high blood glucose level triggers your pancreas to release the hormone, insulin. 

Insulin works like a delivery truck. It shuttles glucose out of your bloodstream and into your cells and when glucose gets delivered to the cells your blood glucose levels return to normal. 


How do blood glucose fluctuations affect my health?

Everyone experiences blood glucose fluctuations. Within 45 minutes of eating food with lots of sugar, your blood glucose levels will be at their highest and then they slowly decrease. Within two hours they will be back to normal. 


If you consume copious amounts of carbohydrates and sugary foods too quickly, your blood glucose levels will spike, triggering the release of too much insulin. Insulin will do its job and soon your blood glucose levels can plummet far below what’s normal. These extreme fluctuations are unhealthy.


Here are some of the most common symptoms of frequent blood glucose imbalances:

  1. Anxiety and depression

Depression, irritability, and anxiety are all symptoms that are related to how your body regulates your glucose levels. If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s a good idea to monitor your blood glucose levels and try to keep them stable. However, if you are struggling with your mental health, you can also talk to your doctor and psychologist. 


  1. Weight loss struggles

If you have low blood glucose, your body will crave carbohydrates and sugar, which can result in weight gain.

High blood glucose levels are associated with high levels of insulin. Insulin will move glucose into cells quickly and they might receive more glucose than is needed. As your body works to store those nutrients and fuel sources, you may discover that you have an increased appetite.


  1. Sugar cravings

If you have low blood sugar, your body does not get enough fuel and your brain will send out a message that you need more sugar resulting in a craving. 


  1. Fatigue 

Eating lots of carbohydrates can leave you feeling tired and sleepy after your meal. 


How do I monitor my blood glucose levels? 

In South Africa, we measure blood glucose levels in millimoles per litre (mmol/l). The normal range for non-Diabetic people is 4-6 mmol/l. However, normal blood glucose levels vary from person to person and depend on various factors. 


There are various ways to monitor and test your blood glucose levels:

  • Blood glucose meters require you to prick your finger and put a sample of your blood on a test strip.
  • Continuous glucose meters are devices applied directly to your skin and can give very accurate readings. Some of these devices can also link to a smartphone app – making it easy to check your glucose levels continuously.
  • If you suspect your blood glucose is continually too high or low, talk to your doctor. Your healthcare provider can do an A1C test. Your doctor will take a blood sample, and the lab will then analyse the results for you.


What can I do to keep my blood sugar levels more stable? 

  • If you are overweight, try to shed those extra kilograms. Having too much visceral fat in your body may prevent the insulin you create from working properly. Talk to your doctor about the right weight loss plan for you.
  • Do some exercise. High blood glucose levels can be lowered significantly simply by exercising. Researchers say aerobic exercises, like running, cycling, dancing, or walking is best. You don’t have to exercise to the point of exhaustion – a brisk 30-minute walk each day can lower high blood glucose levels.
  • Eat a balanced diet. Having a diet that is either too high or too low in carbs and sugars can lead to prolonged periods of blood sugar imbalance. 

You can use a calorie tracking app, like Noom or FatSecret to keep tabs on what you eat. Some apps also show how many proteins, fats, and carbohydrates you have consumed. 

If your blood glucose levels are consistently low, you can add more carbohydrates to your diet. High blood glucose levels can be lowered by eating more low-GI foods. 

  • Manage stress. Being stressed continually will push up your blood glucose levels. There are many ways like journaling, talk therapy, spending time with loved ones, meditation, and practising hobbies that can help lower anxiety.  



Stable blood glucose levels are critical for good health. Be on the lookout for symptoms like anxiety and depression, fatigue, and sugar cravings. They might be indicators that your blood glucose levels are either too high or low or fluctuating too much. For more stable levels you can do some daily exercise, eat a balanced diet, manage your stress, and if necessary, lose weight.
