How Sugar Gets Into Your Bloodstream

In order to eliminate sugar from your bloodstream, it is helpful to evaluate how it got into your bloodstream in the first place.

Sugar is perhaps the most damaging of all food groups for various reasons. Even though carbohydrates such as bread and pasta also become sugar in the body, eating processed white sugar is more damaging. Try to avoid eating processed white sugar as much as possible.

Foods such as cookies, cakes, ice cream, candy, and sodas contain sugar. Once these sweet treats are eaten and ingested, sugar gets into your bloodstream. For diabetics, that sugar should be eliminated as quickly as possible. There are two possible ways to get that sugar out of your bloodstream.

Ideally, diabetics should stay away from sugars, but sometimes they do consume sweet foods. Even so, there is no need to feel guilty or afraid. There are two easy ways to eliminate sugar from your bloodstream in a hurry.

There are ways to eliminate sugar from your body quickly.

Everyone should aim to eliminate sugar from their bloodstream as soon as possible. If you are a diabetic, your blood sugar level will spike quickly after eating sugar and some other foods.

You might think there is nothing you can do about it, but there are two things that are effective in helping you eliminate all that sugar out of your bloodstream.

If you have never tried these methods before, you will be surprised how quickly your glucose level will return to a safe level.

Two Ways To Eliminate Sugar From Your Bloodstream

  • You can burn off sugar from your bloodstream.
  • You can flush out sugar from your bloodstream.

Both methods are effective. If you really want to lower your blood glucose level quickly, try doing both of them.

Burn Off Sugar From Your Bloodstream

One of the best ways to burn off sugar that's in your bloodstream is by exercising. Simply moving will bring significant results. Do some physical movement by riding a stationary bicycle, jogging or doing some jumping jacks. Swing your arms in circular motions, both backward and forward. You will see great results if you do either one or all of these suggestions for at least 10 minutes or more. Do them much longer, if you can.

The most effective way to improve your health quickly is to eliminate sugar from your bloodstream as much as possible. However, once it is there, begin moving. Exercise at least five days a week.

Flush Out Sugar From Your Bloodstream

The other effective way to rid your body of sugar is to flush it out. There is a simple method for doing so. Flush sugar from your body by drinking two 8-ounce glasses of water quickly. Wait five minutes and then drink a third 8-ounce glass of water.

Needless to say, drinking all that water will cause you to urinate and flush out sugar from your bloodstream.

      Shreenidhi, that happened to me yesterday. My blood sugar was higher than usual. I drank a couple of glasses of water, and it was back to normal within no time at all. It really does work. It has been confirmed by many medical professionals.

      Unfortunately, like too many other writers of online articles, you make no distinction here between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes/diabetics. The disease functions very differently in these cases. I am T1, and if my blood sugar spiked to 250 (it happens occasionally) I MUST NOT exercise. Flush out the sugar, yes, but until my sugar levels have come down below 200 (with the use of injected insulin, of course) exercise will cause my body to release more sugar (for energy) and drive them further up.

      Thanks, javedkhank, for your suggestion about fasting. However, fasting is not appropriate for most diabetics because they have to eat something to keep their blood sugar level from dropping too low. I know fasting for 16 hours won't work for me.
