3 Things You Should Do To Remove Excess Sugar From Your Body

Blood sugar, or glucose, is the major sugar contained in your blood. It comes from the food you consume and is your body's major source of energy. Your blood carries glucose to all of your body's cells to use for energy. Diabetes is a medical condition in which your blood sugar levels are excessive.

Over time, high blood sugar causes harm to the body’s organs and systems. Damage to the blood vessels can result in complications, such as heart attack, stroke, damage to the eye, kidney disease or failure, nerve problems in the skin, particularly the feet, which cause sores, infections, and wound healing issues.


Some of the things you should always do to prevent or remove excess sugar from the body include:

1. Monitoring your blood sugar level regularly

Checking your blood sugar level regularly is the most vital thing you can do to manage type 1 or type 2 diabetes. You'll be able to see what makes your numbers increase or reduce, such as consuming different foods, taking your medicine, or being active physically.

2. Always eat garlic

A 2006 research has shown that raw garlic might help lessen blood sugar levels, as well as lower the risk of atherosclerosis. This is of particular interest, as diabetes makes a person's risk of atherosclerosis-related inflammation increase.
